How To: Dress for Your First Day Back to School

August 25, 2014

September is looming, and school will begin for most, very soon. Tomorrow, for me, actually. While I do wear a school uniform, that doesn't stop me from imagining what I would wear back to school, if I wasn't forced into my "petrol blue" skirt, shirt, jumper and black penny loafers. Here are a few suggestions if you're struggling with how to "wow" your classmates, when school starts.

1) Preppy in Plaid
This plaid skort from Topshop, paired with a simple tee from Brandy Melville creates the perfect preppy look for your first day back to school. Don't forget a practical, yet stylish satchel, like this one from The Cambridge Satchel Company, with it's cool calf-hair pocket. These chelsea boots from Zara are a great way to add a finishing touch to the preppy ensemble. 

2) Sports Luxe
A chic pair of trackpants from Forever 21, paired with a simple tee from Brandy Melville and a fun beanie, also from Brandy Melville, create a cool and casual look. To finish off this sporty outfit, add a pair of Steve Madden sneakers and a leather jacket from New Look.

3) Distressed Dimensions
Master the art of balance by pairing distressed boyfriend jeans, from Topshop, with a striped, cropped tee from Brandy Melville. The baggy trousers contrast with the crop top, to make the perfect balance between masculine and feminine. These Steve Madden booties will add that extra touch to the outfit.

4) Bohemian Beauty
While the summer holidays are over, the weather may still be nice going back to school, so this dress and crochet cardigan from Brandy Melville, will create a beautiful boho look, ideal for the warmer school days. 

5) Skater Girl
Channel your inner "Skater Girl" by wearing a classic pair of ripped, denim mom shorts from Topshop, with an oversized sweater from Brandy Melville. Just add this chic backpack from Steve Madden and you're good to go! 

I hope these outfit suggestions helped and let me know, in the comments below, what you'll choose to wear on your first day back to school!
