Back to School Outfit Ideas

We recently highlighted some of our favorite trends to rock as everyone heads back to campus, but sometimes it can be tricky to translate these ideas to your own wardrobe. Here are a few quick and easy outfits for you to effortlessly stay on trend this semester!

Rompers and Jumpsuits are a Girl’s Best Friend

When it feels like every moment of the semester is getting eaten up by schoolwork, an outfit in an instant is an absolute lifesaver. Rompers are an entire ensemble all by themselves, so you can wear them solo or add some easy layers with accessories and outerwear.  Whether you tend to lean toward chunky heels or your favorite footwear is a pair of sandals, they’re sure to match the trendy vibe you’ll set forth with whichever romper you choose. And when it starts to cool down, you can carry the trend into autumn with a bold, striped jumpsuit.

“Too Much Denim” is No Longer a Thing

From mismatched denim to matching sets to overalls, denim is absolutely everywhere this season. It’s easy to style or keep casual, making it the perfect option for back to school. A basic denim midi dress can be used to highlight your favorite shoes, or you can make denim the focal point of your outfit with a mismatched jacket and mini skirt. If tons of denim isn’t usually your style, you can still stay on trend with a pair of super high-waisted jeans or classic overalls. Use these to show off your cutest heels or a statement top.

Stay Comfy and Chic with Active Wear

The athleisure trend seems to be here to stay and we can hardly complain; with on trend style mixed with total comfort, you get the best of both worlds. However, it can be a little tricky to figure out the line between looking ready for class and looking ready to hit the gym. For a super easy decision, you can always rock a matching set. These bring the simplicity of a romper or jumpsuit, with the added option to mix and match with other parts of your wardrobe.

For an effortlessly chic look that steers away from the bodycon silhouette, cropped hoodies are your best bet. You can throw them over legging, joggers, or jeans for maximum versatility. Similarly, a pair of joggers can be paired with additional active wear or tossed over a classy bodysuit for a cocktail of casual chicness!

Style isn’t Just for the Gals

Sometimes it feels like no one is paying attention to men’s fashion, but back to school menswear looks are just as dynamic as women’s. As we slide from summer into fall, slim jeans and joggers instantly elevate any look, even when paired with a basic, graphic t-shirt. For a little more sophistication, you can try a printed or chambray button up, which lend themselves well to layers. Top the whole look off with a denim or bomber jacket and you’ll go into the next semester exuding style.
