This fall, head back to campus with cute new pieces that won't drain your summer savings.
Style 101 starts with denim in a great wash and cut -- these only cost $44. Add a ruffly top, bright drapey sweater and navy flats, and move comfortably from 9 a.m. biology through dinner at the dining hall.
And don't forget the Vera Bradley bag -- a back-to-school style prerequisite.
Get ruffled. Sleeveless white top with built-in "belt" is perfect for layering -- or on its own. $44 at Francesca's, North Buffalo Road, Orchard Park.
Ray of sunshine. Fend off the chill of fall mornings with a long but lightweight sweater. $17 (on sale) at Francesca's.
Denim does it. These could easily be mistaken for jeans that cost four times as much. $44 at Francesca's.
Skim through. Navy blue flats by Calvin Klein are A . $35 at Marshall's, various locations.
Hold everything. Your laptop, iPhone and lipgloss will fit perfectly in this "Happy Snails" Vera Bradley bag. $99 at Magpie Cards & Gifts, Buffalo Street, Hamburg.
Color splash. Earrings ($18) and bracelets ($6 each) add an extra zing of color. Francesca's.
