It’s a weird year to be going back to college - whether you’re an incoming freshman or a seasoned senior, campuses are looking just a tad different this fall. You’re wearing a mask in class, taking COVID tests weekly, and attempting to both hang with friends and keep some semblance of socially-distanced responsibility. But who says the school year can’t still have some sparkle? Below, we’re rounding up our top fall semester essentials for 2020. Enjoy!
Mascne is here, and it is real. Keep your face refreshed and blemish-free with this cute Nordstrom’s-exclusive Mario kit. It pops right into your backpack for easy throughout-the-day touchups!
Speaking of backpacks - you’re going to need something to carry your books (and Mario Badescu) in! Snag a Kanken pack; they come in a crazy-huge assortment of colors and last forever. You can buy them from Urban Outfitters, or directly from the brand here.
Make sure you stay hydrated, but for the love of all that is green, ditch the plastic bottles. This cute neon Hydroflaskcollection is exclusive to Urban Outfitters, and will keep you stylin’ and eco-friendly. Definitely a Fall semester 2020 essential.
Instagram is so 2018 - keep your photo memories near and dear with a Fujifilm that prints them right away. You can find them on Amazon here.
Whether you’re going to an in-person class, or just heading to your friend’s room for some social study hour, you want shoes that will hold up (and look cute doing it). These platform Vans have a great retro feel, and they’re clearly a classic for a reason! Snag this fall semester 2020 essential from their site here.
When it’s time to study, the hair goes up - and that means it’s scrunchie time. When you’re not wearing them in your hair, stack on your wrists for some 90’s nostalgia style (and so you don’t lose them). Check out this pack of 6 cute velvet scrunchies: there are color combinations for every style!
Speaking of 90’s nostalgia, nothing hits quite like the cassette. Whether you’re in Arizona and still swimming in pools after class, or up in the Northeast looking for some cool room decor that doubles as an air mattress - the LOTELI Cassette Float has you covered. Check them out on our site here.
Okay, while these aren’t technically a necessity… stickers are just fun! Whether they’re for your laptop, hydroflask, even your clear LOTELI float, stickers are a great way to personalize your stuff. Bring some whimsy into your life, and pick up a set here.
Part of the fun of a new school year is getting new supplies - and who doesn’t love to be color-coordinated? This Pastel Highlighter Set by Stabilo ensures your notes will be both organized and aesthetically pleasing. You can find them for purchase on Amazon, or probably any well-stocked school supply store.
