Back To School Outfit Ideas

It’s about that time again, the end of the summer vacation, the end of the endless relaxation, it’s time to head back out to school folks. Well for some of us at least. Maybe this is going to be your first semester at college or maybe you’re a returning student. If you’re into fashion, I’m sure you may be planning your outfits in your head already. Or if you’re the organized type, maybe you’ve already figured out what you’re going to be wearing for the first couple days or so. Either way, it’s a new school year and we all wanna look ‘fresh’, don’t we? Here are some put together looks that you can try or at least find some inspiration for your back to school outfits.

Jeans

Jeans are a staple for any college student because you can wear them with anything. Depending on your personal style, you’ll decide what type of top you want to pair your jeans with but be sure to consider the climate of your class rooms. Get in the habit of using sweaters and jackets just in case they are cold. Bright colors were a big hit all through the year, feel free to add a touch of color to brighten your outfit and to make them look more trendy.

Dresses

Lets face it, wearing jeans all the time can get boring. Try adding a few cute dresses to your school wardrobe. Make sure they are an appropriate length and style in accordance with your campus regulations. Pair your dresses with a blazer or sweater for a more put together look. When shopping look for simple prints in durable fabrics that are not too expensive.

Tops

Tees, polos and shirts should be another staple that you should add to your school wardrobe. They are stylish and in many cases inexpensive and as a student, cost always matters. Many colleges carry t-shirts and polos with the school’s name on it in various colors and sizes. Why not find out if your college has any such provisions. These can be great for everyday use or for those days when you simply can’t decide what to wear.

Plus Sizes 

If you have a  fuller figure I’ve got you covered as well. Go for jeans that are dark toned and  does not  have that pre-wash effect on the legs. The pre-wash effect makes the leg area appear wider, jeans without this tend to have a more slimming effect. Loose fitting tops are very fashionable right now, pair one of these with your jeans and simple accessories and don’t be afraid to add some color.

Tip

It is also important to have sensible footwear. We live in a tropical climate and the weather changes suddenly at times. Try investing in one of two pairs of sneakers for those rain days. I personally think converse sneakers look great with most anything. Ballet shoes and Oxfords are other alternatives to keeping those toes and heels covered and dry.

Whatever you do decide to wear and long as you have the confidence to match it, your gonna look great!
