There’s no doubt that the question of what to wear for the new school year is always on students’ minds during the summer. Balancing fashion with comfort and practicality can be difficult, and coming up with ideas is often taxing for even the most imaginative and stylish person. Making it even more difficult is the fact that most of us have a limited clothing budget. In many cases, this is very limited.
