We don’t have to remind you that it’s back-to-school time (we know you’re woefully aware), but in these last few days of summer it’s time to start thinking about what you’re gonna wear on the first day back. Will you try a new look or revamp your signature style? Will you start wearing… WAIT. Whoa, whoa, whoa, wait. What about those who have NO CHOICE about what to wear on the first day, you ask? What, oh what, is there to do if your first day outfit consists of the same three pieces you’ll be wearing from here on out, everyday, until next summer? What about those who are UNIFORM CHALLENGED? Hold up, uni-lovelies, because we HEAR YOU, and MTV Style’s got you covered!

We’ve already shown you the top ten backpacks for tricking out your fall ensembles (even if they’re in dreary navy wool) as well as the cutest and most comfortable flat shoes for jazzing up the halls (and your lackluster separates). Now, we have the perfect accessory guide for tying it all together and adding a little oomph to the blech of any school uniform. From flounce-trimmed ankle socks and lightning bolt rings (very Harry Potter!) to on-trend hair bows and black neckties. We guarantee there’s something for everyone AND for every rule in the uniform book. So, roll up those sleeves and get to work!
