This year, much like every year before it, the back to school season has crept up on us. Homes everywhere prepare for the onslaught, like an epic battle. There will be supplies to stock up on, first day back outfits to plan, and a carefree summer attitude to shelve until the hot weather returns once again like clockwork, to turn everyone gloriously happy again. But back to school isn’t just a frenzied rush to start anew again, saying goodbye to the freedoms of summer. It also represents the start of the fall season, which, no matter your age, class race or gender can be a pretty magical time. When else does a change of color represent so much majestic beauty.
When else are we more excited to anticipate a change in wardrobe, and discover the new looks of the season. There’s a reason September is not only the biggest issue of the fashion magazine year, but also, arguably the best. Something about the end of summer signifies a new beginning even if you’re not in school. At almost 34 years old, I still sometimes think of fall as the start of a new year. My year doesn’t start and end in September, nor do I go back to school. And yet, I find myself drawn to the old memories of picking up composition books, dogearing pages of Seventeen and Ym magazine and preparing for the miracle of a yearly fresh start. No matter who you are a chance to start anew is always welcome. Especially when it’s accompanied by a slew of new styles.
The back to school collection for Beecharmernyc is meant to evoke that precise feeling.
