Green Day wrote, “Summer has come and passed; wake me up when September ends!” It’s true, September can be rough (bye bye, beach!), but unfortunately, we can’t sleep through an entire month. What we can do is pick up all the trendiest back-to-school accessories to make our September days a little brighter. This year’s back-to-school trends range from millennial pink and holographic goodness to all things brightly colored, and Lisa Frank- inspired.
Whether you or your favorite little ones are already back in the classroom, or still have a few more days of vacation, there’s lots of back-to-school shopping to be done. And to make the process easier, we’ve rounded up a few must-haves from 2017’s most popular trends.
Let’s help you start the school year off right ( and stylish)!.

Lisa Frank has made a huge comeback, and this vintage purse/pencil case is the perfect way to start your new collection. Seriously, how cute is this?
Millennial Pink is super in right now, and so are bold, funky backpacks — this 3D canvas backpack does an excellent job of combining all those things.
3Fancy Pelikan Fountain Pen, $15.99
Sticking to the pink, you’ll most definitely need pens to go back to school so why not pick up a few of these fancy fountain pens?
