It's my favorite time of year!! I absolutely love back to school time. And I'm even more excited because I'm kicking off my back to school series today! Over the next few weeks, I'll be sharing back to school outfits, tips, and essentials. I think this time of year is perfect to stock up on a few fun clothing pieces. Since I'm sure those of you starting school in a few weeks are heading to the stores, I thought it would be fun to share what I think are the perfect back to school fashion essentials.
Fall weather can be a bit unpredictable and different depending on where you are. That is why I decided to include tops of all different sleeve lengths. I think a button up paired with some shorts is super cute for a transition outfit. I also love a tank paired with some jeans. And you can't go wrong with a stripe shirt, and I feel like this blue colored one is perfect for summe or fall. A crisp white tee can go with so many things, it's an essential you definitely can not skip out on!
If I had to recommend one pair of pants to you all it would be the J.Crew Factory Gigi Pants. They are so comfortable, but so cute. I love pairing them with a button up or a flowy tank for an easy, but put together look. I always think it is a good idea to get a new pair of jeans before school starts, I absolutely love the Levi jeans. They are affordable and they hold up so well. I love to have a little bit of fun with my bottoms too. I think the striped skirt is a perfect transition piece from summer to fall. It'd be super easy to throw on with a white tee in the morning before school. I also love these navy shorts. If your school allows you to wear shorts do it, a fun printed pair makes for a simple but adorable outfit.
I'm all for wearing dresses to school. I think they make you not only look put together, but they help you show respect for your teachers. Plus it is only one piece to throw on in the morning and you are out the door. The white and blue dress is perfect for the transition months: August and September. And the other two are perfect for the rest of fall and even into early winter. If you don't care for dresses, I think a super cute romper is a good way to get a similar look. I love this romper, the color and style are perfect for transitioning into fall.
Accessories can make or break an outfit, so it is great to have a few new ones to style for back to school. I still love statement necklaces and I think this one paired with a striped tee or dress would make a perfect back to school outfit. The colors work for summer and for fall! A nice tote is great for school, I don't recommend using it for your books but it's perfect for everything you need for extracurriculars or going over to a friend's house after school. I also have been loving hair clips. They look so cute, but they also help to hold your hair back. Perfect for test days so your hair won't fall in your face. As for shoes, I think you should get a new pair of sandals as well as flats! Flats transition perfectly into fall and sandals are great for the summer months.
I hope this gave you some inspiration for back to school clothing! Let me know what some of your back to school essentials are in the comments bellow!
