The Best First Day of School Outfits

I think we can all agree that the first day of school is like a prom day on its own. There’s an unspoken competition to see who looks the best, who has the latest outfit, who is trendy, and who is up to date with the latest styles. No one may say it outright, but everyone has a keen eye out, observing everyone around them. And even without the competition, it’s the first day of school! Who doesn’t want to look good?

The Biggest 5 Fashion Trends of Back to School Outfits

For your first day back it’s important to look amazing not just for yourself but also to leave a good and lasting impression on the people you meet. After all, a person’s first judgment of you forms the foundation of their future relationship with you. Wouldn’t want to mess that up now, would you?

That’s why we are here to help you pick out something for yourself that you feel right with, are comfortable wearing but also something that fits in with the latest fashion norms and style trends. It should be something that makes you stand out but at the same time helps you fit in. Don’t worry, it’s not as complicated as it sounds. It’s actually quite simple, plus it’s a one-time effort and so totally worth it, just follow these simple guidelines for some unique back to school outfit ideas.

  • Anything retro casual:

These days retro clothes, i.e. a bit of vintage mixed with modern clothes, are all the hype. They’re extremely comfortable, make you look like a total boss, and are perfect for the first day back vibe. They communicate that chill, laid back but completely in control of oneself aura that so many thrive for. Can’t miss out!

  • Denim:

The question here isn’t if denim is in style now but rather when is denim not in style. It’s one of those pieces of clothing that has such an attraction and cool vibe to them that you can’t help but just want them. Denim jeans, jackets, pants, skirts, dresses, overalls, and other denim accessories like bags should all be on your checklist. Mom jeans and loose pants also fall under this category and we all know what a comeback they’re making.

  • Slip Dresses:

Slip dresses are probably one of the most versatile items of clothing out there. You can wear them alone or throw on a cute jacket on top with some long boots, quite a popular look. If you’re more on the chill, the casual side you could wear a plain black or white shirt underneath your dress, put on some sneakers or boots and you’re ready. You could also wear tights with your dress if it’s short or if that’s what you prefer.

Slip dresses come in all materials like silk, satin, or plain cotton and in all colors so you can choose whatever you want. They also come in various prints.

  • Mini, girly dresses:

For the summer/ spring girl vibe, a short dress with floral patterns or in soft, feminine colors like pink, baby blue, red, yellow, orange, etc. would be ideal. You can have them with puff sleeves, short butterfly sleeves, or have an off-shoulder dress. Rompers can also be categorized in this group and they look oh so cute.

  • Blouse tops with high-waist jeans:

Now, this is a trend that was introduced fairly recently but has gained quite a popularity in a very short time. Why wouldn’t it? It’s simple to put together, there are thousands of options available and even more ways you can match and accessorize the different clothing items together. Moreover, it gives you a very modern, high-end, and smart look.
