7 Cute Back to School Outfits

School is just around the corner! One of the things that always excites me for the upcoming school year is back to school shopping. In this post, I have seven cute and comfortable outfits of different styles that can easily be recreated and worn at school. I had fun shooting all of these outfits and will definitely be wearing them when I go to college. If you’re not a student, don’t click away just yet! These looks are also great summer to fall transition outfits. Without further ado, here are my 7 back to school outfits!


1. Classy in stripes

You can never go wrong with stripes! 35% of my closet is probably comprised of stripes… I’ll admit I’m obsessed. I wore this striped top with a black skirt and added some color to the outfit with my blush shoes. What I love about this outfit is that it can be worn in any season. Also, it’s a casual outfit that has a classic, even Parisian twist to it.

 2. Cool in olive

To me, back to school fashion also means summer to fall fashion. This is a great transition outfit because the pieces are cool for summer weather but also incorporate fall colors. Olive is one of my favorite colors to wear in the fall.

 3. Sneakers & Chambray Dress

I bought these Adidas Cloudfoam Advantage Clean recently, and I am in love with them! They match nicely with dresses and are super comfortable because of the memory foam soles. I know that I’m going to be walking a lot to get to my classes across campus, so these shoes are perfect for college.

4. Denim, white Dress, & bootIes

Denim jackets are an easy way to make an outfit casual. I paired my black ankle boots with the dress to add a touch of fall to the look.

5. Wrap Dress & Riding boots

Wrap dresses are my new favorite style for the fall. I got this wrap dress from Zara, and it is really comfortable to wear. However, I recommend wearing wrap dresses on days that are not so windy because you don’t want the flap to start flying (I’m speaking from experience haha!).

6. Layered & Chic

I’m not the best at layering cardigans and printed tops. Since I can only bring so many clothes to college,  I need to start learning how to mix and match pieces! Cardigans are great for back to school outfits since you can easily take it off when it gets hot.

7. Casual T-shirt Dress

Basic t-shirt dresses are must-haves for school since they’re fun, and you can make a variety of outfits with them. I tied a chambray shirt around my waist to brighten up the outfit.

Which outfit(s) Do you see yourself wearing? Thanks for reading!

  • Rebecca Young

    You have a great selection of outfits to choose from. I like the first one the best but they all suit you.
    Did you consider buying some pants?

  • Loni Phillips

    Loved each look very much. My favorite has to be the white scalloped top with the khaki skirt.
    Any advice on what to wear underneath skirts to avoid fashion mishaps with flashing people? Spandex shorts, bloomers, slips, etc.

  • Marion Collins

    Love all those outfits.
