Sometimes going back to school can be a drag, especially when (technically) Summer isn't over yet, but Cats Like Us can help chase those blues away. Whether you're a student, teacher or parent who is preparing (or already in full swing) for the new semester, we understand it can be a little tricky to 'switch gears'. So, we've put together some class appropriate retro ensembles that are most certainly 'Aces' all around.
The Monroe Off the Shoulder Top paired with the Wine Country Plaid Haute Skirt makes for a great Autumn into Winter outfit, but if chilly shoulders or dress codes come into play, trying pairing the skirt with the adorable Josephine Ribbed Tie Cardigan or the Burgundy Piaf Ribbed Cardigan Sweater.

Whenever I think of retro school girls, I think of Peter Pan collars, so the Kiss Me Deadly 1960s Dress is a perfect kooky spooky play on this classic retro silouette. Now add the Over the Knee Cable Knit Socks and the spacious Parallel Universe Skull Handbag and now you're ready for Ghoul School *Wink*
Other Perfect Pairings to Add:
You can create a variety of outfits for the school week by mixing and matching separates. The Black Henrietta Pedal Pushers are a great multi-seasonal wardrobe basic that can be paired with a plethora of tops, sweaters and t-shirts.
Some of our favorites:
Don't forget the accessories! You can get more mileage out of an outfit by adding different accessories and 'pops' of color. The Gramophone Music Brooch will look smashing on the collar or the Steady Clothing top paired with the Black Denim Pencil Skirt, Sky Blue Bead Necklace and Blue Bow Ribbon Bracelet.
Add some more pizzazz with these stockings:
I have to admit one of my favorite parts of going back to school was refreshing my fall wardrobe, so I hope I gave you some ideas and inspiration for the new school year. You are already an A+ in our book.
