Going back to school may not be the most exciting thing, but showcasing a great fashion style might help you feel a bit better.
Deciding what to wear to school on a daily basis can get annoying, especially when you’ve run out of ideas on how to look trendy and fashionable in a simple way.
If you’re a fashion lover and want to show everybody your styling skills and sense of fashion, then let me guide you through 12 of the simplest but trendiest ways of rocking school outfits.
6 Easy back to school outfits
1. Cool jackets
Layering any type of outfit is one of the keys to elevating your look. And what better way of doing so than with a cool jacket?
You don’t have to wear it all day long, but it will definitely help you make a statement in the early hours of the morning, as soon as you step in.
1.1 Boyfriend jacket
An oversized boyfriend jacket is one of the coolest ways of rocking a layered outfit. It’s trendy and edgy and will elevate your basic school outfit in the easiest way possible.
You don’t even have to buy an actual jacket. Just go and peek into your brothers’ or boyfriend’s wardrobe to check if they have one you can borrow every now and then.
Roll up the sleeves if they’re too long, and don’t worry about it being too big: an oversized look one of the trendiest looks you can pull-off.
The best thing about jackets is that you don’t have to worry about the rest of the outfit. You can wear anything simple from a white t-shirt and jeans to a striped tank top and a skirt. Whatever you decide on wearing, a jacket will only make it look cooler.
1.2 Cropped jacket
Cropped jackets are another trendy style you can rock at school.
Same as with boyfriend jackets, you probably don’t even need to spend a dime. Double-check in your wardrobe to see if you have any jacket that you don’t like anymore or that you think it can get a major makeover, and cut it right above the waistline.
1.3 Embroidered or embellished jacket
An embroidered or embellished jacket will definitely make a statement. Opt for one that has motifs all over the jacket, or that has a bold pattern and/or color.
I can guarantee that If you wear it almost every week, it will become your signature piece. And who doesn’t like to be associated with a cool jacket?
You can also get creative and make a DIY embellished jacket. There are many YouTube tutorials on how to transform a basic denim jacket into a cool, embroidered and embellished one.
You can paint on it, add pins and beads, and even learn to make embroideries, and you’ll feel more special knowing that you’re wearing something that you did by yourself.
2. Graphic tees
Graphic tees have become quite a thing among fashionistas: from young teenagers to fashionable older women like Icon Accidental.
And, if you want another reason as to why graphic tees make the perfect back to school outfits, then let me tell you that styling them is an absolute piece of cake.
If you want an easy and simple outfit for school, then nothing can get easier than pairing a cool graphic t-shirt with a pair of high waisted jeans and sneakers. Nothing less and nothing more.
That’s the magic of fun graphic t-shirts: you can pair them with absolutely any type of bottom. It’s the star of the outfit, so styling it is a no brainer.
Try pairing your favorite graphic t-shirt with trendy jeans. High waist, wide leg, mom or boyfriend jeans… You name it. What’s important is that you look cool and stylish:
A band tee makes the perfect excuse for showing a fun, edgy and cool style. Add distressed jeans and sandals and you’ll have cute outfits for school all year round.
You can also wear a straight high waist skirt. Remember that tucking in your t-shirt is the most effective way of looking trendy and cool.
Graphic t-shirts are also perfect for fall and winter school outfits. All you have to do is pair them with your favorite booties, jeans, and a cardigan or jacket:
Overalls are a cute piece you can definitely add to your “outfit ideas for school” list. What used to be in the 90’s nostalgia memory box is now a cool piece you can wear for any type of casual outfit, including school.
Wearing overalls is not only cool and cute, but also easy: you can wear any type of t-shirt under, from sleeveless to long sleeve, and solid to bold prints.
Overalls are also great for winter or fall. Wear a long sleeve tee and booties, and accessorize with scarves, hats or beanies:
You can even wear a pullover sweater as your top instead of t-shirts.
Try wearing a tight-knit top with statement sleeves to elevate your overall outfits:
What I love about overalls is that you can wear them with absolutely any type of top. T-shirts are the go-to option, but you can definitely rock overalls with button-downs, puffy sleeve shirts, or off-the-shoulder blouses. You choose!
If you love boho chic outfits, try wearing your overalls with an off-shoulder blouse and a hat:
Or a ruffled and romantic top:
4. Jumpsuits and rompers
If easy and fashionable are your words to describe your back to school style, then jumpsuits and rompers should be included on your list.
They’re even easier to style than overalls because you don’t need any extra piece. They’re also a statement piece by themselves, so accessorizing them isn’t as necessary as with other types of school outfits.
Jumpsuits are usually super comfortable, especially if you opt for a wide-leg style, letting you move freely and feel comfy throughout the day.
You can also spice up your jumpsuit style by pairing it with t-shirts. Who says jumpsuits have to be worn alone?
This is also a great idea whenever the temperature drops. Add some extra warmth to your look with a long sleeve t-shirt and a jacket.
One thing’s sure, jumpsuits are of the comfiest pieces you can wear to school:
Other easy outfit ideas for school include rompers, which are the summer version of jumpsuits. They’re equally comfortable and cute, and make the perfect school outfit for warmer days.
What’s a school fashion style without dresses? They’re always a great idea for any type of casual look, and the best part is that they’re super comfortable as well.
5.1 Wrap dresses
Yes, you saw it coming. Wrap dresses definitely deserve a space on this article. They’re cute, flirty, feminine and super trendy, so make sure you have at least one in your wardrobe.
They’re perfect for warm days:
And you can always style them in order to keep yourself warm whenever the temperature drops. A leather jacket and booties will do the trick:
Midi dresses are always a great idea as well. Maybe mini dresses aren’t your thing, or your school dress code won’t allow them, so switching them for midi-length dresses is equally as cute and trendy:
5.2 Loose and flowy
Another comfortable dress option for school outfits is a loose and flowy dress. Just like wrap dresses, they’re cute, timeless, flirty and super feminine.
You can wear them with sandals, sneakers or espadrilles:
You can par your dress with tights, booties and a hat for fall or winter days:
5.3 Straight and basic
A straight and basic dress will always come in handy: from summer to winter, they’re perfect for school days, all you need to do is style them properly.
You can wear midi dresses as well. T-shirt dresses are perfect for all-day comfort, which is precisely what every school student needs:
A basic black t-shirt dress and white sneakers can make up the perfect school outfit:
