Back-to-school for grown-ups
The kids may be going back to school but why should they get all the new gear? We all deserve shiny winter boots and bags too. Here's our pick for back-to-school style.
Too cool for school
Gain some serious cool parent creds with these newly released Dr Marten Chelsea boots with standout white stitching and heel loop.
Ideal for those much needed on-the-go caffeine injections, this stylish travel mug comes in several colours (we’re coveting this trendy mint green) and collapses down into a nifty leak proof disk. Available from Oliver Bonas.
School, work, social commitments – when it’s all happening at once, it’s handy to write everything down in one place. This mid-year planner from Papier, inspired by Oxfordshire’s ultimate party venue Aynhoe Park, is just the ticket for keeping life on track.
Return of the mac
September showers call for a new raincoat for the school run and this sleek, lightweight navy design from super-cool Scandi brand RAINS is at the top of our wish list.
Drop it like it’s hot
Butter fingers? Keep your screen safe with this chic paint stroke design from Casetify which will protect your phone from descents of up to three metres (and children).
Cover up in style at the school gates with this pack of five 100% cotton, triple layer face masks, made from randomly assorted up-cycled Liberty prints – one for everyday of the week.
£40 for five
On the cards
Never misplace or forget your cards when you’re dashing out the door (we’ve all been there) with this funky metallic card holder – it’s the perfect size to slip in your pocket or handbag. Available from Anthropologie.
If only satchels were this cool when we were in school, right? Loved by the glossies (Elle, Vogue, Harpers Bazaar), this 100% leather bag from indie British brand N’Damus is practical and chic with functional front pocket and adjustable strap. This colourway’s limited edition so snap it up, pronto.
If you’re traveling to school via pedal power, stay safe and chic in this helmet by sustainable British brand Dashel. Made from recycled materials, it’s lightweight and comes with comfy washable pads.
The ultimate back-to-school essential? A large glass of fine wine in the evening, of course. Here’s a helping hand from us with 25% off a case of six organic fine wines from Muddy favourite Levin Wines using the code MUDDY, or a case of 12 using the code STILETTOS.
