Sick of just plain jeans? Then upgrade to distressed jeans. You may think of creepy biker guys wearing jeans with a million holes in them, but no. Some distressed jeans come with a hole on the knee, then some cuts on the thigh. Others come with cuts all down the leg. There are many kinds of distressed jeans, and you can get them basically anywhere. You can pick the type, even the color you want, to match your style.
Jeans available for $29.80 at www.forever21.com or your local store.
You'll need a great bag to carry all your school stuff in, right? You don't really want a backpack, do you? A cute oversized tote bag is just what you need. It's perfect for carrying all your books and gym clothes, and can double as your purse.
