Start the new school year in style because summer isn’t completely over and bright colours are still in. Play them up. Kamloops has a great local selection of fashion, there’s no need to drive to Vancouver to find chic, trendy outfits.

For the first week of school try a little vintage inspiration with a pair of flattering, bright-coloured, high-waisted shorts, combined with a white front-tie top. You can make your legs look miles long in amazing black wedge ankle boots, both trendy comfortable. Take advantage of the last summer days with a Cleopatra-inspired golden necklace, zirconia studs and black and snake skin cuffs. This look works for school because it’s a classy, laid-back and playful look. Pair the outfit with a messy, undone hairstyle and minimal makeup. Everything pictured is student-priced too, just under $70 at the Stitches in nearby Aberdeen Mall.
