Back to School Trends 2016

By Melissa Jara

Summer has come to a bittersweet end. I hope you had a blast and were able to keep up with all of the Marked Ministry articles for Life. For this month’s section, lets cool it down and catch some back to school highlights.

Start the semester, or your new season, off with keeping your heart burning hot for Jesus like it’s the beginning of summer. But let’s be cooler than cool with our new get-ups. These styles that seem new are really going back in time. Isn’t it funny and strange how fashion trends do that? Trends come and go, fall in and out of style, but there are those that stay the same all year around. But if you’re into the seasonal change there’s no more neon colors from here on out.

The things that do seem to stay in are Converse, Vans, slightly ripped jeans and flannels. But being able to add to those cute “never out of style” items is what makes fashion so fun and expressive. It’s when you can touch up the gear. The casually fashionable look is a cool loose shirt or blouse with skinny jeans and comfy cute flats. It’s perfect for a day of learning, then hanging out with friends old and new.

Thank the Lord that He is nothing like our trends that go in and out of style! Hebrews 13:8 assures us “that He Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today and forever.” Have fun, and say goodbye to summer and hello to school and new clothes. Always remember that trends change but Jesus doesn’t!
