Back to School Outfit Ideas

With the start of my last semester in college I have learned a thing or two about dressing down for comfy days or dressing up for presentations, meetings, or even just for myself! Today I am sharing 5 back to school outfits to help getting ready for your day just a little bit easier. 

Outfit One

For this outfit I paired a lightweight sweater with one of my favorite denim skirts from Charlotte Russe. I added a leopard print belt with matching oxfords to tie this look together. This outfit is perfect for a day at school when you want to look really cute but also want to be comfy!

Outfit Two

This outfit combines all the basics but in the best way! Pair a graphic tee, with a plaid top, a pair of jeans, and sneakers and you are good to go on any school day. I have always hated being stuck in a freezing classroom so layering up became my best friend. If you’re anything like me and hate carrying things then just tie the extra layer around your waist! 

Outfit Three

T-shirt dresses are so easy to pick up and throw on when you are in a rush for school. I added a denim vest on top to spice up the look. Even though I love wearing heels, they aren’t always the most practical choice for school. Adding a pair of white sneakers keeps this look crisp and comfortable. 

Outfit Four

Surprise, surprise! Another girly look for you. I mean what could be more girly than polka dots and skater skirts? On those days when I want to dress up just a bit more I like to put on a skirt and pair it with lace up flats. With fall just around the corner wearing lightweight sweaters is a must!

Outfit Five

Moving onto outfit #5, this one is great for when you have to dress up for presentations and want to add a little color into the mix. Whether you wear this floral top with a skirt or dress pants, this outfit is perfect for days where you have to dress up and are tired of gravitating towards a more traditional color palette. 

Whether it’s for school or for your everyday life, I hope these outfits help you out!

    These are the cutest looks! I used to only wear leggings and tee shirts to class, but now I totally understand the importance of being presentable! My favorite is the last one… the print on that top is super pretty and your skirt is such a great pop of color! Hope you have a wonderful weekend!!
