Zendaya is one stylish girl and we have no doubt that the 18-year-old’s classmates would take notes whenever she strutted down the school’s hallways. Thankfully, she’s been kind enough to share her advice on creating a solid, yet chic back to school outfit and why you shouldn’t blow all your hot new pieces in the first few days.
“My number one, honest, real solid piece of advice is don’t wear all your dope clothes in the first week. Don’t do it,” Zendaya told Styleblazer. “Spread out your new pieces because if you wear that new shirt with the same jeans you had last year, no one is going to notice. But if you wear the whole new 'fit, and you wear it in the first week, then you have nothing else to wear.”
Her stylist, Law Roach, with whom Zendaya created her new shoe collection, was also on hand to add that being young means being able to “do what you want” and “take chances.”
So what would constitute the perfect first day of school ensemble for the Disney star? Zendaya lists out a combination of things you probably already have in your closet.
“Everyone looks good in some boyfriends jeans, a white T-shirt and some dope shoes. Everyone looks good in it, boy, girls everyone.”
And you already know who to turn to for some of the dopest shoes around. (Hint: Check out the Sole of Daya collection!)
