Whether you’re going back to school or its business as usual, the prospect of fall can bring up mixed feelings. Either way, you can start on a high with some fun style prep. Read on for Noelle’s tips and tricks for putting together a 10/10 look that will turn heads all on and off campus.

We all know style is about expression and comfort, but are there any other components you consider when putting together an outfit?

I always take the occasion into consideration. Once I’ve factored that in, I throw my personal touch into it along with my mood for that day.

What pieces are you looking to add to your closet as we move into the back half of the year?

As it gets colder, I love playing with layering elements and accessories like statement vests, blazers, jackets, hats, scarves, gloves, socks, etc.

What was your favorite part about back-to-school shopping when you were younger?

My favorite part was not only getting new clothes but also the feeling of laying out my outfit the night before and being excited to wear it the next day.

What are some tips you’d suggest to someone struggling with finding a style that works for them?

I believe the first step is figuring out what you like, whether that’s simple, maximal, colorful, muted, abstract, etc. After that, it’s essential to understand your body frame so your clothes enhance you rather than drown you. Lastly, find what makes you feel confident and have fun with the process.

What separates eBay from other resale and shopping platforms?

eBay’s vast selection definitely sets it apart. You can find anything from cars and sneakers to luxury handbags, making it such a versatile marketplace. I know I can shop confidently with their Authenticity Guarantee service for purchases like sneakers, handbags, watches, and now streetwear.

What about your specific back-to-school picks from eBay resonate with you?

I’d say they showcase my adaptability in overall outfit choices, and there is nowhere else with as diverse of a selection as eBay!

Noelle gravitated toward streetwear’s most coveted brands, starting off strong with Supreme (which in 2022, global eBay users searched for more than 30 times per minute). Her first choice is the Patchwork Jacquard Top from its Spring/Summer 2023 collection. The cotton sweater features adjacent knit patterns that together form a cool patchwork tapestry. Noelle isn’t afraid to experiment with styles, and the relaxed fit makes this piece versatile for both a streetwear look with wide-leg jeans and a slightly bohemian look with a layered skirt and belt.

Next in her basket is the Supreme Nike Arc Crewneck in Heather Grey. Perfect for the chillier days ahead, this highly popular casual sweater has a joint combo of the Supreme logo and Nike swoosh on the side. For more of a statement piece, the Supreme Velvet Chore Coat Cow from the Spring/Summer 2020 collection is a bold yet not over-the-top take on the cow print resurgence (we have Doja Cat to thank for that). More of a jacket than a coat, it’s made from cotton velvet with a satin inner lining and four front pockets.

Of course, Noelle couldn’t miss a Y2K moment. The Bape Made By Human Busy Works Jeans have the perfect low waistline plus embroidered shooting stars on the back pockets – because the more cute details- the better, when it comes to the 2000s. Complex embroidering embellishes the Bape x Stussy Jeans Supreme Chrome Hearts, reminding streetwear hunters why BAPE is also one of the most coveted brands, with searches up by double digits year-over-year (April 2023 compared to April 2022) on eBay.

Last but definitely not least, she went for a pop of neon on the feet with the Nike Shox MR4 Mule Martine Rose. Noelle loves a striking shoe, and she has already sported these internet favorites on her IG page more than once.

Whether it’s that piece you’ve been waiting to get your hands on for a while, or more of a casual browsing situation, the website has an ample supply of both esoteric finds and the biggest brands in fashion. If you play your cards right, you can find some real bargains and gloat over your master shopping skills.
