It’s time to go back to school! If you’re a college student, that may not sound like that exciting of a prospect. It’s always tough getting back into the swing of a new schedule with tests and studying, right? Well, there is at least one upside to going back to school – getting new back to school stuff.
Whether you are in the market for the hottest trends in fall fashion, tech gear or décor to make your college living space stand out, we’ve compiled a list of the hottest must-have items for back to school.
These days, having a reliable laptop to take with you to the library and the lecture hall is as important as your textbooks. For the ultimate in sleek design, battery power and tote-ablility, we recommend the Apple MacBook Air 13-inch. This baby not only looks beautiful, you’ll barely notice that it’s in your bag because it weights a little over 2lbs. The best news is its extended battery life. You can use it for 12 hours straight without having to charge. That’s perfect for the crowded campus coffee shop where plug-ins are hard to come by.
The 2014/2015 school year is all about showing your school spirit. That means embracing your school swag. Along with 1990’s grunge gear, animal prints and florals being popular fashions, there has also been a resurgence of school pride on campuses across the country. More and more students are donning their school’s colors and mascots on everything from scarves, to hoodies, to socks. Hit your campus bookstore and take a peak at the latest university-logo inspired gear.
You’ll want to heat up the essentials in your dorm room, like pizza, popcorn and coffee. But who has the space? Now you do. The iWavecube personal desktop microwave is portable so it works perfectly for your dorm room. It’s also light and has a handle so you can take it down the hall to your friends room too. Heat up whatever comfort foods or drinks you need to help you get through your first few weeks back to school.
You’re going to be walking around campus alot. It’s always a good idea to have a backpack that is durable and comfortable to take with you and protect your books and gadgets. Hex’s Outpost Cloak bag has the look and feel of a messenger bag, without the ensuing shoulder pain from using just one strap. The bag’s canvas material is treated to make it resistant to water and has inside pockets that can hold up to a 15-inch MacBook. Separate pockets keep your phone and sunglasses safe.
Sick of studying? Just want to catch up on your favorite television shows or watch a movie? That’s where the Sony NSZ-GS7 comes in handy. Connect this device to your WiFi network and you’ll have Netflix, YouTube and Hulu at your fingertips.
