School’s back in session, and it’s left me feeling a bit nostalgic for the classroom, especially for my literature and writing courses. I have to admit I miss reading great novels and then dissecting them in with my fellow classmates to figure out what made them so wonderful to read. To me, the perfect fall afternoon still consists of getting lost in my latest read whether it be Cinderella Ate My Daughter or Gossip Girl Psycho Killer. (Both of which I recommend.) Even the style world seems to have a love affair with lit, incorporating classic works into clothing and accessories.
Here are five items that let you show off your love of lit in style.
1. Kate Spade Book Clutch
Bright, modern and elegantly whimsical, this adorable splurge-worthy clutch (shown in “The Great Gatsby”) comes in almost a dozen different classic titles.
2. Pride and Prejudice Fleece Top
Perfect for curling up on a lazy weekend with your favorite read, this soft top is inspired by Jane Austen’s classic novel Pride and Prejudice.
3. Sherlock Holmes Bracelet
Copper-plated with an adjustable fastener, this handmade bracelet is made from the pages of “The Hound of the Baskervilles.”
4. The Outsiders Tee
Designed by award-winning designer Mikey Burton as part of a grad school thesis project to get young adults interested in reading, this tee is classic-literature-meets-rock-and-roll.
5. Fahrenheit 451 iPhone Case
Modeled after the cover of Ray Bradbury’s dystopian novel, this canvas cover adds instant edge.
