Campus life is back! Last year’s waist-up wardrobe? Sooo 2020. With many of us heading back on campus and into the classrooms, this back-to-school season promises a chance for you to get back in touch with your stylish side.
But what’s that now? Are we having a little wardrobe analysis paralysis?
Deep breath…we got you, with twenty (count ’em!) equally amazing items that are so clutch to have, they’ll take your fits from Campus 101 to Boss Level.
Ready to get started?
If there is one article of footwear that you’ll be wearing everyday, it’s your slides. Why go for some cheap off-brand that’ll prob fall apart on you after a semester? Durable materials, premium cushioning and STYLISH AF, these Cool Cat Campus slides from Puma come in different color options, making it easy to find the one you’ll love.
College life is steeped in history. Show them you know how to rock retro (with a fresh take) in the one and only, T7 Track Jacket. The classic black & white will have you pairing it with everything in your closet from skater jeans to leggings to dresses. Kudos on such a smart investment!
Made with Puma’s dryCELL technology, these leggings wick moisture away from the body to keep you dry and comfortable. And we are seriously crushing on the supercool ombre coloring that’ll look just as on point with your hoodie and sneaks, as it will heading to class with your fav OTK boots and a chunky oversized turtleneck.
What’s better than a big, chunky lug sole boot? How about a big, chunky lug sole boot that won’t have you in blisters while trying to break them in? Yea, we thought so too…
Because P-O-C-K-E-T-S…mic drop, full stop
Classic Ribbed Beanie $17.50
BHD happens. Be ready with this comfy classic beanie, so you can get out the door and slay your day…
Truth, we know wardrobe space is at a premium on campus. That’s why this midi needs to be in your rotation. Made of vertical ribbed fabric that uses recycled fibers, it bounces back no matter what wrinkled pile it may have ended up in (no judgements, folding is an art). Plus the cotton in the skirt is from the Better Cotton Initiative, which helps support more sustainable cotton farming around the globe. Pair this skirt with a quick cardi-cami set and you are put together in zero time.
Is there such a thing as life without hoodies? We hope to never know, so long as brands like Puma keep coming out with more & more must haves…like this roomy blue beauty with a super chic, sunset inspired variation of their classic logo.
Oh we know you’re going to wear these confectionary cuties just about everywhere.
PUMA x ODIN, Backpack $52.99 (reg. $90)
For those who are looking for a little extra in their backpack. This cool, retro print was inspired by items like beach towels you would have seen back in the day on Coney Island. It’s an awesome collab between Puma and Odin so supply is limited. And did we mention it’s on sale? I think we just did…
Speaking of amazing collaborations, this one has our full attention. Puma partnered with the Black Fives, a foundation dedicated to researching, preserving and showcasing the inspiring legacy of pre-1950 African American basketball (known as the “Black Fives era”). This collection is an homage to those basketball pioneers who paved the way for generations of players to come. Made with raw suede, natural dyes and original collab graphics, this is a shoe we should all be proud to wear.
Truth be told, we love a great puffy sleeve. And we’re not alone. Puff sleeves have been slowly taking over tops since last spring. This luxe looking version will pair great with high-waisted pants or a flowy, dark floral midi…many choices, really.
Backpacks aren’t for everyone. Indulge in a different way to lug your laptop and belongings around. This bag has multiple, secure pockets, top flap access to the main compartment with a hook-and-loop closure and an easily adjustable strap that will give you your personal perfect fit.
Into everyone’s life, a little color should fall. These candy-colored numbers from the Puma x Haribo collab look good enough to eat (tho’ really…wouldn’t recommend that).
Fact: a great white tee is an absolute must and yet one of the trickiest items to find. Search no more, for your new bestie is here. Form-fitting but with easy stretch, no worrying over any “collar-curling” and nicely dense enough to ward off any unwanted bra show.
Patch Waist Bag $20
For the times when you aren’t lugging your backpack around. Perfect for over the shoulder wear (or round the waist if that’s your thing) and roomy enough to carry your cell, wallet and makeup necessities. Plus the patches are ADORBS.
We love the extra thick waistband on these and the mini-zip pocket on the back means you can stash your fitness center key and stay hands free.
The perfect LBD that you can layer up or down. Seriously, you *need* this dress…
Upgrade last season’s chunky trainers with this season’s flatform model. You’ll find it as on point with your mini as your low-slung baggies.
These puddle pants give you instant chill mode. Pair them with your preferred crop top or body-con turtleneck.
Well that’s our list! We hope you loved these pieces as much as we did. But hey, if not – no worries. Puma has literally a ton of sleek, chic and downright dripping items in their Back To School Shop. Check it out to grab even more cool apparel, shoes and accessories.
