One of our favorite things about back to school is, of course, the prerequisite shopping that needs to be done before heading back to campus. While our college days are way behind us, we asked our two adorable NYC Summer editorial interns, Robert Khederian and Colleen Doyle, to share their collegiate must-haves list with us. Robert, recent grad from Williams College, prefers cool leather loafers and luxe totes, while Colleen, current student at Manhattan College, looks to fun jolts of colors and leather statement pieces. See each and every piece they're shopping for, then tell us what's on your back-to-school lust list!

Kristen Bell usually delivers feminine silhouettes and bright shades on the red carpet, so we were surprised to see her sporting a pantsuit last night at the premiere of Hit and Run. Kristen styled up a Jenny Packham Fall 2012 look for the night, proving that pantsuits aren't just for tall girls. Watch on to hear more about her outfit in today's Fab Flash. On Allison McNamara: H&M jacket.
From madras to polka dots, large to floppy, and even velvet and sparkly, Brad Goreski's bow ties are sure to send a sartorial smile across anybody's face. Not only do they add extra whimsy to his already vibrant Americana style, but also, we love how Brad manages to pair his signature accessory with just about any look. To wish one of our favorite stylists a happy 35th birthday, we've selected 10 of our favorite — and most irresistibly cute — Brad bow tie moments for you to peruse, plus tips on how you can inject a little bit of Brad's style into your everyday look. Start taking notes!

Rachel Bilson grabbed lunch with a friend in LA showing off her unique Summer style in this Rag & Bone mixed-print dress ($395), nude-and-black Rebecca Minkoff flat sandals ($220, originally $275), and celebrity favorite thick-rimmed sunglasses. To break up the black and white theme, Rachel carried an orange chain-handle Chloé bag — here is a similar version ($1,495) and the black style ($1,295). Score Rachel's exact dress, bag, and sandals to incorporate into your Summer wardrobe. Then when Fall rolls around, throw on tights, a cozy coat, and booties for an equally smashing ensemble.
Jennifer Garner promoted her new flick, The Odd Life of Timothy Green, in NYC in a navy-and-black leather paneled dress and black peep-toe mary jane pumps, both by Yves Saint Laurent. While leather paneled dresses are not new on the scene, Jennifer's look reminded us how chic and edgy the trend can be when done right. We also love Whitney Cummings's black-and-white leather paneled dress for a more dramatic effect and Khloe Kardashian's A.L.C. black-and-tan leather dress ($1,150) for a subtle approach. Depending on the color scheme you go with, leather paneled dresses can be worn everywhere from the boardroom to a fancy soiree. To get the celebrity-favorite look, shop our favorite picks below.
Fall's military trend isn't unlike the actual military; it's an age-old tradition, expertly skilled, and ready for anything. From season to season, the utilitarian look can take on many forms — and between sharp, structured silhouettes, elaborate embellishments, and classic camouflage touches, designers definitely brought out the big guns for Fall 2012. The overall aesthetic was punctuated by crisp coats and capes with fitted trousers along with traditional military touches like epaulets, strong shoulders, and knee-high boots — all in a dark, moody color palette of khakis, blacks, and grays.
So, are you ready for battle? Click through for some runway-inspired examples of the military trend, then shop some pieces for your arsenal.
Kate Beckinsale nailed the colorblocking trend by tucking a coral tank into a blue pencil skirt, both by Diane von Furstenberg, then adding a little edge via spiked Christian Louboutin pumps while promoting her new movie Total Recall in Ireland. The brunette beauty accessorized her brights with celebrity-approved white sunglasses, Melinda Maria drop pyramid earrings ($80) — available for pre-order — and a high ponytail. Re-create Kate's bright colorblock ensemble with a coral tank, blue pencil skirt, and embellished pumps for a professional, yet playful look.
