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!

Weekend Fashion.

You live for the weekends, don’t you? I guess we all do. This is because weekends are supposed to be fun or at least a change from the regular during the week routine. Even if this is not the case, we all look forward to those breaks when we can relax or do that thing we’ve been meaning to do for ages now. Not only is it a change from what we do but it is a change from what we wear. We finally get to ditch the work clothes and the school clothes for something that is more “us.”  Here are some great easy to put together looks for weekends that you can wear to run errands, go shopping, or just to hang out with friends.

Great to run errands in, try paring a t-shirt with your favorite shorts and flip flops. This look is low on style but high on comfort.

My Weekend Looks

Staying in the shorts department, this look is a bit more fashionable. This is great for going shopping or meeting up with friends.

This look consists of a couple of my favorite things, converse sneakers and cut off jeans. We all own a pair of cut off jeans and if you don’t, they are so easy to make. Pair jeans with a basic camisole and a plaid shirt that you can tie to the front or just leave open.

Sun dresses are so cute. They are also adaptable to suit many occasions, from going to the beach to grocery shopping. Just loose the hat if you’re going shopping.

For those who are reluctant to show off too much skin, I didn’t leave you out. This is a look that I just love and it comprises of a basic item that I’m sure you already own, the maxi dress. The maxi dress is more adaptable than the sun dress and is suitable for many body types. Pair with comfortable footwear and accessorize to suit your taste and you got it.

We all have our own opinion when it comes to fashion. These looks are based on what I personally like and on the the fact that I live in a Caribbean country, which means it  is often very hot outside. Please feel free to share with us what you like to wear on the weekends, we’d love to hear from you. 🙂
