Back To School Fashion!

We are so honored to have Jen Tessier, Store Manager of Express at Maplewood Mall here to share what the hottest fall fashions are for back to school!

For Her:

Lace up details on sweaters and tees add just a little more to those tops. Paired with embroidered or distressed denim, this outfit is great for fall school days or in the bleachers of the Friday Night Lights.

Bell sleeves are back and bigger than ever. Worn on a crepe casual top with jeans, or a mini dress with over the knee boots, these sleeves are ringing in the new school year.

Statement earrings are the new go to accessory to add to any outfit, casual or dressy. Chokers are always a great add on to that sweater with jeans.


For Him:

A new trend for men, stretch denim!! These stretch fabrics are so comfortable that you won't ever want to take them off! Denim is for everyBODY from a skinny to a loose fit, destruction in different fabrics and washes, every guy should own jeans this season.

Casual plaid shirts are a always a great add-on. Great for any day of the week, and any occasion. Can easily be thrown on heading out the door with jeans, or put with chinos for a special event.

Henleys add a new style of tees, in short or long sleeve, that sharpen his look. Tees are a basic that are not so basic anymore. So many different options with graphics, pockets, buttons, or small emblems. Great for under those casuals shirts and sweater cardigans, which are right around the corner.
