Style Me - Back to School Smarts

I've already received my second "Style Me" question, and I couldn't be more excited! Today's question comes from a very special lady, and soon to be real-life Ari Gould. She is studying business at LMU Los Angeles and already wheeling and dealing in the entertainment world. I'm so excited for her future, and hope these tips make the first day back to school a bit more bearable.
Dear LSBA,

I am returning to school this fall, and I am in desperate need of a fall fashion reboot. What kind of investments can I get on the cheap that will make my wardrobe worthy of A+ grades? Any fall trends I just CANNOT avoid and that will fill my classmates with envy? Thanks Little Seed, you're the best!

For those busy days when you are rushing in between classes, opt for loose-fitting cotton tops, bright jeans and girly-chic accessories to ensure you remain functional, and, more importantly, fashionable. While the jeans are a bit pricey, I find them to be a necessary investment at least once a year, and you won't be disappointed with a bold colored investment. When you are shopping for your new semester wardrobe, also be sure to stock up on many varieties of cotton tops that suit your figure - tees were by far my most frequented article of clothing for class, and a flattering T-Shirt always trumps wearing your tattered Alma Mater. Couple these items with a bold canvas bag to spruce up your backpack regimen and some funky flats, and you are set to pass any test you take on from Flip Cup to Psych 101.
