In order to be "lit" and "fire" in class, the main thing you need to know is the '90s are back. Cher's yellow plaid jacket from Clueless is back in vogue.

"Fashion trends are definitely cyclical... ...but this year we've got the 90s for sure and a little bit of the 80s," said Jester pointing to a Hawaiian shirt reminiscent of Magnum P.I.

Accessories are big and the more stylish your backpack, if your school allows it, the better.
Jester said there are three perks to coming to the mall for your back-to-school shopping, "See the styles and see what you feel best in, you're only going to get by shopping here in person."
