Debby Ryan: Back To School Trends

Posted: Updated:

In 2012, Teen Vogue created Back-to-School Saturday, a national shopping holiday designed to inspire consumers to get out and shop for the best of Back-to-School on this one day. Now in its third year, BTSS expands to a month-long celebration beginning on Saturday, August 9th and continues through the all-important Labor Day weekend.

Back-to-School Saturdays will come to life in more than 130 malls (76 Simon Malls) across the country and feature Teen Vogue fashion shows, editor appearances, musical performances, celebrity meet-and-greets, special deals & offers and more.

Teen Vogue will kick-off BTSS at the Del Amo Fashion Center in Torrance today at 3pm. The event will feature a fashion show with the hottest back-to-school trends for fall and immediately flowing will be a musical performance by The Janoskians.

On Saturday, August 9th Teen Vogue will take over The Park at The Grove for a day-long celebration featuring a live deejay, makeovers, DIY's, in-store events, and more.

Lumberjack Chic: This look is a fun take on the American heritage inspired trend. It's all about a city-meets-country feel and includes key pieces such as barn coats, fleece jackets, ski sweaters, and hats. The key is not to go head-to-toe Lumberjack though…you really want to mix the rustic with the sleek. Pair a plaid dress with your favorite hiking boots, a shearling coat with cargo pants, or your go-to flannel with a jumpsuit for the perfect mix of outdoorsy style. This look is perfect for fall as layering is what makes the trend work.

  • Abercrombie sweatpants, $50.
  • Aeropostale jacket, $66.
  • Aeropostale vest, $36.
  • Aeropostale Backpack $64.50

Mod/Chelsea Girl: This throwback London-inspired trend is a mash-up of 60's mod and downtown cool. Mix shift or baby doll dresses with oversize cardigans and wool coats and finish the look with a black opaque tight and a pair of Mary Jane shoes or flat boots. Worn with a cat eye the look is rocker-girl chic.

Pastel Prep School: This retro schoolgirl trend puts a pastel, candy-colored spin on your basic uniform pieces. Amplify skirts, classic crew neck sweaters and shift dresses with quilted brocades, a must-have field jacket, normcore puffer vest, or nylon windbreaker. This trend is all about real, wearable uniform essentials touched up with 60's elements.

Street Denim: Denim has and always will be a must-have staple for fall. Streetwear denim is all about lived-in overalls, distressed boyfriend jeans and even denim on denim—with a laid-back, comfortable vibe. The key accessory is the sneaker--made for the streets, not the gym.

The “New” Denim Short: Cut-offs are out and the longer boyfriend short is in! A good pair of boyfriend shorts should be a little long and sit lower on your hips.

The look is a perfect transitional outfit for the early months of fall.
