Back to school shopping: Who will you be this year?

TORONTO, July 27, 2015 /CNW/ - For better or for worse, there's nothing like the first day of school.

Sure, the first day of class means the summer is over, but it's also a time to reconnect with friends, to make new acquaintances, and of course, to show off your new look.

Especially if you're attending a new school, there's nothing like the first day of school to help you answer the question: who do you want to be this year?

So if this year marks a new beginning for you at a new school, here are a few tips that could help you inject your personality into your wardrobe with a few choice items that can be found at any Cadillac Fairview shopping centre, while taking advantage of all the latest trends, and without breaking the bank. Visit to find the closest Cadillac Fairview mall to you.

Understand what works for you: If there's one rule to good style, it's about being true to yourself. You are the best judge of what looks best for your body type and personal style. Start by taking stock of what you have already, then go online, or visit your nearest mall, to see how you can dress up your look with what's new and exciting. Don't be afraid to take chances.

Go with versatility: Choose clothes and accessories that work with multiple combinations. If that top only looks great with that one skirt, maybe it's not the best use of your budget. Instead, opt for a shirt that works with a skirt and a pair of jeans, or a statement pair of boots that ups the ante on any outfit. Whether it's a plain white t-shirt, blue jeans, or Converse All Stars, there are certain elements that can work with multiple combinations.

Something old, something new: Not everything you wear on Day One or throughout the year needs to be fresh from a popped tag. Mixing old and new clothes will allow you to bring out your flare, without breaking the bank. Besides, some clothes, like a nice leather jacket or a pair of Chucks, often look better with age, so don't be afraid to dress them up with your new designer top or pants.

But most importantly, be bold. If you're starting at a new high school or college, your first day of classes, and the outfit you wear, can set the tone for the entire year. In many ways, it can help to define how you'll feel for the remainder of the year.

So don't be afraid to show them who you are.
