As I begin packing to head to college, I can’t help thinking about what I’m going to wear during my first week of school. In this post, I put together four outfits that are suitable for a school day. Hopefully they will give you some inspiration!
Outfit #1: Casual Vintage
This is my go-to outfit when I want to feel comfortable, yet cute. It consists of a pair of mid-rise shorts and a peter-pan collared tee shirt. I like to tuck the front of the loose-fitting tee into the shorts for a more stylish touch.
Outfit #2: Pretty Effortless
I tend to shy away from wearing skirts and dresses, but a skater skirt paired with a graphic tee is the perfect outfit for when you want to look pretty without trying too hard. (Pretty effortless, get it? 🙂 ) I also pair this outfit with Vans sneakers to further dress it down, but feel free to try it with sandals or flats.
Outfit #3: Laid Back
This is the outfit that you grab without thinking on days when you are running late. The flannel tied around the waist gives this outfit an fashionable, hip edge, yet is functional, too. If you feel cold during the day, you can put on the flannel. Problem solved!
Outfit #4: Hanging onto Summer
Since summer is still here, you may still be in the mood to wear cute summer tank tops. And you can! Just pull on a light cardigan over them, and grab some jeans or shorts to match. I love how the burgandy colors in this outfit combines autumnal tones with the summery tank top and cardigan.
That’s all! I hope these outfits were helpful if you are heading back to school soon! And of course, no matter what you choose to wear, make sure it’s cruelty-free. Leather and wool pieces may look fashionable, but there’s nothing cute about where they came from.
