The kiddos just returned to school in some parts of the universe and others are feverishly preparing to head back in the next week or so. Back to school preparation is definitely not reserved for students! Us grownups (parents or not) enjoy trying new looks during this time of year as well. Because we all agree that a fresh lip color, hairdo, or lashes can improve our outlook and productivity, right?

We checked in with some of Instagram’s most fashionable lifestyle influencers for back-to-school style inspiration as we head into the new season. Be sure to leave us a comment with your fave looks!

Soft Glam


In this autumn-ready olive ‘fit, Makeup by Shayla is comfy yet chic. We love how her flawless skin, long beachy waves, nude lip and lush lashes pull the entire lewk together.

Business (Casually) Chic


Some days you need to look pulled together and polished but dread going the stuffy corporate route. A structured blazer feels less boring paired with a tee but it is really Eva Chen‘s bangin’ bob and natural beat that pull this look together in such a flawless way.

Sexy Sleek


Who doesn’t fancy a sleek low bun, smoky eye, and a dope bronzey tan that whispers ‘I might have enjoyed a little jet setting this summer’? Lori Harvey gets it right every season and we’ll be digging this glam well into the fall months.

Cute + Comfy

Admit it: There are days when we just don’t have the time or energy for all out glam and fashion. But Julie Sariñana proves that a baseball cap and trendy sneakers can still look pulled together with loose waves, a contemporary matte lipstick, and a confident attitude. 

Flashback Fly


Sometimes a perfect bold red lip and ’90s-inspired fashion are all you really need. A timeless hairstyle doesn’t hurt either. Thank you for the reminder, Kahlana Barfield Brown.

Pregnancy Pretty


Being with child does not require one to be without style. Influencers like Masoom Minawala Mehta maintain their camera ready looks even with a baby bump and this modern bob with sexy beach waves, pristine brows, and natural makeup keep the paparazzi clicking. 

A Mod Mood


A sleek bun (with a middle part to boot), vampy lip, full brows and lush lashes are a cool way to usher in autumn. Melanie White paired her glam with a playful on-trend dress and ankle boot that can go from morning school drop to client meeting to date night. Perfection!
