suspenders shorts outfit

Summer break is coming to an end, and the bustling halls of academia await you once again. Hit the campus in style and confidence with a fresh wardrobe. We have six different fun back-to-school outfit ideas that range from casually chic to effortlessly cool.

1. Casual Chic — Some days, you’re just going to be way too busy to put on a very detailed outfit. In between studying, going from class to class, and all of your after-school activities, you have a lot going on. You need an outfit that can keep up with your busy schedule. For a casual chic look, pair a graphic tee with a denim jacket, high-waisted jeans, and white sneakers. Complete the look with layered necklaces and a crossbody bag or your backpack if you need to carry books. If you love the idea of a casual white tee or graphic tee, take a look at our cute tops for women for more inspiration.

2. Bohemian Floral — Florals aren’t only for Spring. Give your back-to-school look a bohemian twist. According to Cosmopolitan, while a bohemian style outfit is most associated with the counterculture in the 1960s and 70s, there are plenty of ways to give your outfit a bohemian vibe with modern pieces. Wear a flowy floral print maxi dress with autumn flowers or Fall colors like mustard, dark green, and brown. Pair your dress with ankle boots, a wide-brimmed hat, and a set of bangle bracelets. You can add on more bohemian details like a bag with fringe detail or a statement ring with a crystal or jewel.

3. Athleisure — For total comfort and for a look that can take you from the classroom to the gym, wear something athleisure. Try an oversized hoodie with high-waisted leggings or bike shorts with your workout sneakers, a baseball cap, and a fanny pack. When you’re getting around campus, put on your sporty sunglasses.

4. Sophisticated — Maybe you have an important event at school, or maybe you just want to dress up on your first day back to school. To make a head-turning first impression that’s cool yet effortlessly sophisticated, pair a white button-up shirt with a mini skirt and a pair of cute boots. Accessorize your outfit with a leather watch, stud earrings, and a tote bag.

5. Edgy — An edgy back-to-school outfit is perfect for the woman who wants to channel her inner rebel with or without a cause. Begin with a graphic tee and black skinny jeans, and throw on a leather or faux leather jacket that pairs perfectly with stylish jeans and booties. If leather jackets just aren’t your thing, swap out the leather jacket for a denim jacket instead. Finish off your look with a chainnecklace and a studded bag.

6. Retro Twist — You’d be surprised by the way you can turn any modern outfit into one with a bit of a retro twist. Try a colorful blouse with a long skirt, add some cute sneakers, and put your hair up in a bun. After all, any retro look looks great with a stylish skirt and updo. Accessorize with fun sunglasses and earrings. You can really home in on the retro look with additional touches like a bright handbag and a hairpin in your hair.
