As much as we hate to admit it, the rainy weather lately is spelling it out for us folks. Thats right -- it's about that time to hit the books again. I know how it can be a little hard to get back into the daily grind, especially if you are still trying to get over an amazing summer (I know I am). However, prepping for your classes doesn't have to be so dull. All you have to do is put a positive spin to it, remember: glass half full! There are so many different ways to help you get started from plotting out your busy schedules already to trying to personalize your school supplies. 

However one surefire way of getting yourself excited is by planning your wardrobe so you can make your grand entrance on the first day of school. Now if you are feeling the strain of your budget already stretching because of school materials, then one of the easiest solutions is by accessorizing. Nothing revamps an old outfit faster than a fresh statement piece. To help you kick-start your school wardrobe, here are some stylish SM Accessories that are not only chic but also affordable enough to suit any aspiring fashionista.

Scarves - Even in a tropical country, you can find yourself a little chilly especially with all the rain that has been going about lately. Instead of bringing a jacket or cardigan, try a scarf to get the job done. Lightweight and stylish, with different fun prints to choose from, scarves can punch up an outfit almost immediately.

Sunglasses - Just because you have to leave the summer season behind doesn't mean that you have to leave the whole season's wardrobe with it. Try some of SM Accessories' large and glamorous sunnies for that classic Jackie O. feel. Perfect for heading to early morning classes or hiding the effects of pulling an all-nighter.

Statement Necklaces - When your favorite dress or t-shirt and jeans combination needs some updating, one of the easiest and trendiest ways of doing it is by using a statement piece. Remember that the key to rocking this look is by keeping the rest of your outfit simple and tamed so that your necklace will be the center of attention.

There are a hundreds of ways for you to play up different accessories, and the best part is that you have the rest of the school year to do it. If you want to capture the essence of summer, SM Accessories has looks inspired by the elements of the sea, sun and sand from shades of luminous coral and aqua to sun-bronzed splendor.
