Back to school is upon us guys! Seriously, where did the summer go? I feel like it was just yesterday I was finishing up all my finals and saying goodbye to so many college friends. This summer has been amazing and I can’t wait to see what the future has in store for me!

As for Back-to-School, for some of us, planning our outfits is just as important as decorating and organizing. I always have such a hard time picking out my first day of school outfit. It’s an insane amount of pressure. You want to look professional to show your teachers you’re serious about your education, but you also want to look cute and comfy. This is school after all and we are sitting for hours at a time. Comfort is definitely key.

I’ve come up for three school outfit ideas that will hopefully give you some inspiration to get dressed up for your first day of school this fall, whether it be high school or college.

Leggings: similar here (on sale now for $14.99) // Shirt: similar here // Cardigan: similar here // Shoes: similar here (now on sale for $29.99) // Watch: Michael Kors – similar dupe here (now on sale for $21) // Bracelets: Charming Charlie

For this outfit, I decided that I wanted comfort to come first. Therefore, I started out this outfit with leggings. I personally find leggings to be the most comfortable type of pant. I also love that these leggings in particular have zippers at the bottom which gives them a little more style than the regular black pant. Next, I put on a plain, loose tank. You could go with a more busy pattern to spice up the look but I love neutrals. Lastly, I picked a light cardigan to throw over top. I love this cardigan because I literally throw it over everything whether I’m wearing a shirt and shorts or a really nice dress. It’s a great accent piece!

sweet & sassy

Pants: Hollister (on sale now for $25) // Shirt: American Eagle – similar here // Shoes: Material Girl -similar here (now on sale for $35.99) Watch: Michael Kors – similar dupe here (now on sale for $21) // Bracelets: Charming Charlie

This outfit is my go-to quite frequently at college. It’s so easy and you probably already have these pieces in your closet. I based the entire outfit off of the shoes because they are my absolute favorite for the fall months. They’re wedge booties and I’m in love with them. They’re really easy to pair some jeans and a tank with. It looks like you pulled off an amazing outfit without even trying, the shoes do all the work for you 😉

girly & fun

Dress: Annie Sez – similar here and here // Shoes: Converse // Watch: Michael Kors – similar dupe here (now on sale for $21) // Bracelets: Charming Charlie

This outfit is probably my favorite one out of the three. I love putting on a cute dress and just completely rocking it. I specifically like skater dresses like these because they’re tight at the torso and flow out at the waist. This style just looks so great on so many different body types. I paired the dress with converse to dress down the outfit a bit. Remember, we are going to class, not brunch, so comfy and cute is essential.

 

I love finding outfit inspiration online, so I hope these outfits were inspirational to you. What do you like to wear to class?

  1. These outfits look amazing on you Isabelle! Because I’m still in high school, I have to follow the ridiculous dress code (eye roll). For class, I tend to dress a bit more casual, but I always have those days when I want to spice things up 🙂

    1. Thank you so much!! Whats your dress code like? At my school we were allowed to wear pretty much anything as long as it wasn’t a sleeveless shirt or a mini skirt. You could totally wear a bunch of cute and comfy stuff!

      1. Sorry for the late response, but my dress code is pretty strict. No leggings, unless the shirt covers your butt. No spaghetti straps. No shoulders or back showing. No midriff showing. No jeans with holes above the knee. It’s horrible :/ I can’t wait to go to college because then I can wear whatever I want.

        1. WOW!! Now thats a strict school. Are you in public school? I went to a public high school and there were rules but they weren’t really enforced. Lucky me I guess lol Leggings are my favorite type of pants, I would be crushed if I wouldn’t be able to wear them on a daily.
