Back to School Outfits for College

The first and the most popular back to school outfit for college is a dress.

You can’t ever go wrong with a dress outfit. You need to find some that are appropriate for college.

It has to be cute, stylish, and not very provoking.

If you wonder how to wear dresses to school or college here it is.

Find the dress and add some layers. Don’t forget accessories to stand out.

If you are struggling to find flattering dresses, that’s probably because you don’t know what looks flattering on your body.

In case you want to know more about your body type, its characteristics, and ups and downs check out the body types section on my blog.

Have you ever tried an outfit all in one color (I don’t mean black)?

This is the next outfit idea for college students who love wearing pink.

Let me tell you why I wanted to share this. I am 27 years old by the way, and I love buying new clothes in pink.

I don’t know why, lol

So, for this outfit, you are gonna need a pink mini skirt, pink button-down shirt (oversized will be better), and other pink accessories you see in the picture.

Don’t you love how the outfit looks?

I am in love.

So, if you ever wondered how to wear a scarf for school this is one of the ways.

The next way to stand out from other people is to wear a graphic tee with a cute color skirt.

Graphic tees are very popular among students, so it’s worth trying one out.

This college outfit will look so cute and modern.

I think you will get a lot of compliments from your friends and teachers.

For shoes, you can definitely go with sneakers.

If you have shorter legs or if you are petite, you can opt for platform sneakers.

Creating and styling outfits have different definitions.

Creating outfits means you need to choose clothes to pair together.

But then you have to style it the right way. I mean you have to add accessories, choose the hairstyle that goes with the outfit, etc.

Here is the next stylish outfit idea you can try at the college.

In fall you are gonna need some layers to keep you warm. So, don’t wear only crop tops because that’s trending.

By the way, layered outfits look even better.

In case you want to discover basic but the most important things about fashion, check out my book “Dress to Impress” to get better in styling outfits.

For this next outfit, you are gonna need dark wash skinny jeans, a crop top, a plaid shirt, and boots.

I have to admit combat, lace and these kinds of boots are so popular right now.

Culottes are currently a popular fashion choice.

So that’s why I want you to try them as well.

You can style this outfit with culotte pants and a cropped sweater.

Then you are gonna need some accessories and you are good to go.

Don’t forget to check out some similar items down below.

Flared jeans are another must-have piece for students (not only).

But they may not flatter every body shape. For example, I don’t enjoy wearing them, so I rarely do.

I am pretty sure you already noticed how feminine off-shoulder tops look.

In case you didn’t know flared jeans go perfectly with platform sneakers.

I don’t want to mention accessories in every sentence but I don’t also want you to forget about them. So…

Have you ever tried linen clothes?

If you haven’t, you are losing a lot.

This is a high quality fabric that makes you look so elegant and chic. Along with the quality, it’s so comfy to wear.

So for this outfit, you are gonna need linen pants, a black top (or bodysuit), and an oversized cardigan to make it look cuter and chicer.

I have to mention I love high-waisted pants. Anything that has a high waist looks flattering on me.

If you want to wear something more interesting, more unique this next outfit is for you.

To achieve this look you are gonna need a black turtleneck, shorts, tights, sweater vest, and Chelsea boots.

This will be a chic, modern outfit that you can wear at the college.

And if you ever had the question in your mind “how to wear school clothes” this is how you should do it.

You can add a trench coat to this outfit. It will look even better.

Here comes the next outfit which is just as simple as wearing a two-piece linen outfit.

Why linen? – I have already addressed this question earlier.

But you can choose cotton instead of linen as well.

Those fabrics make you look much better than other synthetic fabrics.

They are so comfy too.

But the main thing here is they look so modern and stylish at any age.

I am sure you love wearing leggings.

If that’s so, this next outfit is for you.

And for this outfit, you are gonna need leggings, a crop top, a fur coat, and combat boots.

I am in love with sherpa jackets. I have a ton of them.

They look so cute and modern also.

I feel like a queen when I am wearing them, lol

And believe me, I have a ton from last year.

Okay, I know this is not a new thing.

This is the outfit that most of the students already wear.

But my go-to piece here is high-waist straight-leg jeans, which look so modern.

Also, a little shoulder bag is a must-have as an accessory.

Plus, keeping hair down makes the outfit look even cuter.

Here comes my next favorite outfit.

This is an outfit with skinny leggings or jeans, a crop top, and a cropped jacket.

If you have a defined waist, crop tops are must-have pieces for you.

They will help you to show your waist and accentuate it.

This is about balancing your body.

There are so many little details that can flatter your body. You may haven’t thought about them at all.

This is another cute outfit with flared jeans.

Generally, when you are not sure what colors to pair together, it’s better to keep everything solid.

This is the perfect example of an outfit with solid color clothes.

When you try hard with accessories, you are gonna have a perfect look to wear to college.

The pleated skirt is another very popular piece for students.

Some colleges even have skirts as uniforms.

It’s so trendy right now.

So, it’s time to try it.

Here is the first outfit idea (more later in the article) with a mini pleated skirt.

This is a pretty basic look that is also very easy to create.

You are gonna need just a basic mini pleated skirt, a white top and a blazer.

back to school outfits for college

A blazer is my next must-have thing for everyone. Not only for students.

I think every woman should have at least one blazer in each color. I am working on it, lol

I am saying this because a blazer can create chic outfits in seconds, making the outfit look complete effortlessly.

The next trending piece that every student (not only) should have in their closet is a long coat.

For the next outfit, you are gonna need a black mini skirt, a cropped button-down shirt, a long coat, and loafers.

Here is the trick you can use for your next outfits.

I mentioned the balance above. You need to do things the right way to have that balance in the outfit.

You need to keep the balance for colors, prints, lengths, skin coverage, and so on.

In this case, this outfit is a perfect example of the balance I am talking about. But this time it has a perfect balance for lengths.

So here is the trick – you have to avoid wearing everything short or everything long at a time. You need to work with that to catch that balance.

Here the girl is wearing a short bottom, a short top but a long coat. That makes the outfit look so balanced and complete.

The same happens with balance for skin coverage – you need to make sure you are hiding or showing enough skin with your outfit.

This outfit could be the perfect example of that as well.

Here is my next favorite college outfit you can try.

Why do I love this? – because it looks simple and elegant.

Do you need to look elegant at college? – well, I think yeah.

Especially if you prefer classy to casual, this will be a go-to outfit for you.

The actual reason for liking this outfit is the thing that the outfit is in solid colors.

You can just simply wear, a beautiful black bodysuit (or top), brown pants and a black vintage leather jacket.

Cropped sweaters are really popular right now. They’ve been in style for years, actually.

So, I wanted to include them in this back to school outfits as well.

This is how you can use crop sweaters for college outfits – style them with a mini skirt. Use high-knee boots with the outfit.

Add some accessories and you are good to go.

You can find some thigh-high boot outfit ideas here in my other article.

This is the outfit for leather lovers.

Well, I am the one too.

I love faux leather pants, jackets, and leggings too.

The only thing I wanna tell you is to not overdo with leather clothes. Because you are gonna look like a biker and not a college student.

That’s also OK but still…

This is basically a plaid mini skirt and an oversized sweater.

But accessories are the thing here and there. Remember that!

\What I say right now depends on the college you are going to.

Some colleges don’t let wearing distressed jeans there. But some do.

So, if your college doesn’t have restrictions this is the next outfit idea for you.

This is a wide-leg pants distressed jeans (which is more than popular right now) and a crop top outfit.

How to wear a school jumper? – this is the one way to do this.

You can simply throw it on your shoulders.

So you need denim jeans with a tucked-in top, jumper, or sweater and accessories.

This is everything.

I know this is the basic thing but I wanted to share this because it looks so chic and modern.

So, you’ve got an easy idea of how you can make your outfit look chicer.

Wide-leg pants are another thing that is so trending right now.

I have to say this outfit is my another favorite.

I saved the best for the last.

But the unique thing in this outfit is the color combination.

I wasn’t able to find the exact clothes but I want you to try this color combination once at the college.

This is fun to wear.

And I am sure you are gonna get a lot of compliments.

The colors you should use are pink, green or blue, and white.
