The best part of August is not the lingering summer afternoons, the barbeques, or the lazy days at the beach - it's the back to school shopping! Stores everywhere are bustling and brimming with new fall stock and I for one cannot wait! This season, my hot picks go casual cool style with soft cardigans, natural fabrics like feathers and suede, earth tones, unique detailing like lace, ruffles, or decorative draping, and grey grey grey. A light heather grey is my key colour for fall: it matches with everything, provides a softer contrast to bright colours than white, and isn't as serious as black.

However, shopping for back-to-school basics shouldn't mean busting your bank account - you already have enough spending to do on books, supplies, and if you're in college, tuition. There are great deals to be found if you pay attention: look for sale signs (avoid any deals offering less than 40% off or 2-for-1s, those are generally scams that get you to buy more than intended), make a focused list of your must-have items and stick to it, bring a friend who will talk reason into you when you contemplate something crazy, and troll your fav online stores (sometimes there are web exclusive deals not found in stores). Happy shopping and stay tuned for Back to School for $100: Guy's edtion!
