Using this look as inspiration, there’s a much better way to implement it in your everyday wear so that you do not show up to school looking like a tart by using the orange skirt as a launch pad to something more practical.

These orange colored jeans from British retailer Dorothy Perkins are the perfect way to make a bold color statement that will literally set you apart from your friends.  Not to mention that they’re currently on sale for $28.16 so you better snatch them up before they’re all gone.

Also, remember if you’re not a fan of orange, bright colored jeggings are going to be huge this season, find a color that compliments you fuchsia, bright blue & electric green are also fantastic options that will be very popular this fall.

You’re gonna want to match those jeggings with a a super neutral top so that you allow the pants to be the statement piece.  This flesh toned cami from The Gap is on sale for $14.50 and will really bring together the autumnal hues of this look without overpowering it.

Katy pairs her basics with a cute printed vest, but since the weather is about to cool down it might be smarter to go with a fun, print cardi like this cheetah print cardigan from Delias.

This will end up being one of your goto pieces this fall/winter so even though $44.50 is a little pricey it will be worth every cent.

There’s a lot you could do with this with an array of footwear choices, a cute nude wedge heel would be great for going on a movie date.

However, practically speaking, this look would work well with an adorable pair of brown booties like the Charlie boots from Alloy that are on sale for $36.90!

And of course, we cannot forget about accessories.  Katy keeps things simple with a flesh-toned bracelet because of the overpowering color and print in the rest of her ensemble.   This simple coral colored bracelet would work perfectly.

It implements a similar shade of orange from the jegging while adding a touch of class to the overall look.  Plus, it’s currently $4.80 on Forever 21’s website.  Anytime, anything’s under 5 dollars, you want to jump at a chance to acquire it.

This look, inspired by Katy Perry is marginably affordable and uses basics that you can use in your wardrobe throughout next spring.  Giving you the ability to look fun, fresh and fashion forward without spending a fortune on your Back-2-School look, don’t you agree?
