Impossible Outfit: Back to School Edition
Dear Paper Doll,
I just started my second year of grad school in a New England town, and I feel the need to broaden my sartorial horizon beyond the hoodies, leggings and Uggs that I wore almost daily last year. How should I shake things up with a radical new sense of style that’s also appropriate for an institution of higher education?

Dear Sick of Sweatshirts,
Ah, back to school! Fall is, hands down, my favorite time of year, and it certainly doesn’t hurt that fall fashion is an exciting change of pace from summer’s dresses and sandals. I have turned to the YUP fashion closet for the ideal back-to-school ensemble – get ready to knock your classmates’ socks off!
4. Hats are underrated —as your mind expands with newfound knowledge, keep it warm with this satin Balenciaga topper. Nicely quirky, not a bit stuffy.
5. Tote your e-reader and your smartphone in this chic silk handbag—a nod to the classic school uniform plaid, without being overkill.
Tie it all together with a pair of funky, patterned tights, and you’ve got yourself a back-to-school outfit that’ll make you forget all about those sweatshirts and Uggs!
