Today we’re going to be talking about a few outfits I would wear for the Back to School season. School can be boring and a seem like a chore to get up and go in the morning, but something that always makes it easier for me is getting excited about what I’m wearing!
Let’s go ahead and hop right into the first outfit.
1.) Back to Basics
For this first outfit I went for something simple; something basic; back to basics. Not only is this a total “Paige” Outfit, but it also plays off the “School Girl” look with the plaid dress on top. I decided to pair the more put together top with a pair of distressed jeans and, of course, tall gray socks with my white converse. The dress came from goodwill, the jeans are originally PacSun, and Converse of course can be found in many different stores.
2.) 70’s Inspired
Look number 2 was put together after I decided I wanted a look that pulled from the vibes of the 70’s. 70’s style clothing is coming back full force this fall, so I dove into my wardrobe and found what I could to bring you a look that was on trend. I decided first that a neutral pallet was best and then immediately after that decision knew I had the best outfit in store for this look. I started building the look with this olive green jumpsuit from forever21 which I absolutely adore! EXTREMELY COMFORTABLE FOR SITTING IN CLASSES! It’s literally like I’m wearing pajamas. On top of that I added a thrifted paisley printed shirt around my waist that added so much of the 70’s vibes I wanted for this outfit. I polished up the look with studs in my ears, of course, my black cut out boots, made by yours truly, and a pair of grey and white frilly socks from Rue21!
3.) Mixing Prints and Patterns
The question/comment I get more than anything is some variation of “How do you wear that and rock it? I could never do that!” I tend to mix a lot of patterns, different styles, and textures, and people always think that they couldn’t ever pull that off, but people…let me tell you, you can rock any piece of clothing with any other piece of clothing you want! If you’re comfortable and if you feel like you look great then put that outfit on and wear it all day long! For me, when it comes to mixing my textures and patterns the key is that I tend to stick with a monochromatic look. For this one I started off with a pair of black distressed high waisted shorts (from Marshalls) and added a black and white striped v-neck (thrifted) for the first layer. On top of that I added a black and grey backless lace dress and finished the look off with a black and white plaid shirt tied around my waist and black canvas toms. All of which are…you guessed it….thrifted.
That’s the end of that one, folks. I’ve walked you through three options for your first week of school outfits, and I hope you gained some inspiration for what you’re going to wear! I know some people have dress codes for school, some of you are in college without a dress code, and some of you are looking for just another everyday outfit, so I tried to cater to all of you. If you find yourself looking at an outfit above but don’t think it will meet your schools dress code just switch it up a bit or leave me a comment down below asking me how I would make the outfit dress code appropriate! Thanks for sticking around, and I hope y’all have a GREAT SCHOOL YEAR!!!!!
