Back To School Gear Inspired By Broadway

It’s that time again! Summer is preparing to take its final bows and make way for Autumn to take the stage. Which means it’s time to prepare for your role reprisal as you return to the halls and classrooms of your high school/college. And what better place to look for style inspirations than the stages of Broadway and the West End?

Here are a few back to school pieces inspired by the stage:


Let everyone know you are not throwing away your shot by giving your look some revolutionary flare with a military inspired jacket. Or decorate your room or new dorm Founding Fathers style with some patriotic accessories.

Harry Potter and the Cursed Child

Potter fever has returned with the release of the new stage show on the West End. While we all wish Hogwarts were a real school (I don’t remember them ever having to take Calculus) we can bring a little of Hogwarts to the muggle world. So break out your house colors and keep your pumpkin juice fresh.

I just couldn’t leave out The Bard, especially with Kenneth Branagh’s version of the beloved Shakespearean classic wrapping up it’s run in the West End. Float through the halls of your school like a dreamy Juliet or join the King’s Players as you brush up on your Elizabethan vocabulary.
