Summertime is almost over but for students headed back to school, even if the living isn’t easy, the fashions are.

Easy, that is.

While achieving the right fashion look may take some work, the actual looks reflect the easy, dressed up casual sensibility that is a major theme in the fashion world.

The denim may be distressed and fitted, but not as extreme as perhaps a couple of seasons ago. Overalls and classic denim shirts and jackets along with simple minis are all part of the denim repertoire.

And athleisure, the tres hot trend in fashion at the moment, will be seen in plenty of classroom hallways with chic versions of staples like sweats, statement T-shirts, leggings and jeggings all vying for the award to see whose casual fashion can still make a statement.
