It’s almost time to go back to school, but don’t let the back-to-school blues get you down. A new school year means a great excuse to catch up on the new fashion trends and show off your new duds to everyone on campus. We talked to a couple of experts who gave us a sneak peak at this school year’s essential wardrobe additions.

GILDED AND GLITZY

Don’t be shy about letting yourself shine. Fall 2012 is all about the glitz, and we’re loving every sequin.

“What recession?” says CarolineTseng, of street-spotted.com, a website devoted to recognizing the supreme fashion sense of college students, particularly in New York. “We saw tons of sparkle and pizzazz happening on the runways.”

To pull off glitzy without looking gaudy, follow some of the leaders of the trend, like Prabal Gurung, Michael Kors, and Bebe. Want to look rich without breaking the bank? H&M is stepping up the shine with their new collection in collaboration with Anna Dello Russo, Fashion Director and Creative Consultant for Vogue Japan.

Yes, the 1980s trend is still going strong. Give a nod to the decade of neon and big hair by donning puffed-shoulder blouses, bomber jackets, and long blazers, says Mary Jo Miller, academic director in the Fashion department at The Art Institute of Atlanta.

GATSBY GIRL

Get swept up in the romance and glamour of the 1920s.

“Reflecting the 1920s Jazz Age and the upcoming release of the new Gatsby film, there will be a trend back to soft sheer dresses, delicate lace, whites/pinks/beiges, and of course, pretty floppy hats,” Tseng says.

Some of our favorite designers, like Tory Burch and Ralph Lauren have nailed this look. Also try shops like Club Monaco and Modcloth for pieces with a 20s vintage vibe.
