Now that school’s around the corner…oh wait, you’re no longer in school? Well it doesn’t mean you can’t get back to wearing some super cool, school-inspired outfits that you can actually wear to work. Whether you hated high school or loved it to the point that you still miss it, here are some outfit ideas to get you back on the fashionable track.
Tough Girl on the Block
For a cool girl vibe, go for a leather skirt (bonus points for a skater style) paired with a fall-worthy button down and a messy up-do or braid. Wear with flats for a girly touch, heels for a sexy look, or with boots for an even tougher overall look. This look is chic because you can easily mix and match high end pieces with low end/thrifted pieces.
Ah, the sporty girl. If you love a bit of sport chic for fall, you’re in luck! This totally 90s trend is slowly gaining popularity. It all started when everyone started wearing baseball caps with, well, everything! Oh you know what we mean! Remember how a lot of fashion bloggers and lookbook personalities suddenly wore baseball caps out of nowhere? Well, it seems as if this sporty trend is in full swing. From baseball tees to super bright Nikes, even the tennis player look can be easily seen strutting down the streets nowadays. No love for tennis whites? Well, the sporty chic trend is also about simple silhouettes and an androgynous mindset. Go for boxy shirts and crop tops if you don’t want too much of the sporty girl trend. Yes, we definitely know the appeal of wearing a trend in small doses.
The prom queen knows the power of a great glittery piece. If you love glitter, you’re in luck! Fall’s runways were littered with glittery pieces that you can totally dress up or down depending on the weather. We love the look of the glittery dress/skirt and comfy sweater combo. It’s definitely a relaxed take on the prom queen’s look! Or, you can go for glittery party dresses, which you can dress down with a beige trench coat or an oversized cardigan. Finish with flats for that perfect daytime allure.
We’re totally generalizing here. Why? Well, because we can truly imagine the valedictorian as the preppy girl who can be a bit bitchy, a la Blair Waldorf. She has perfectly coifed hair, shiny shoes, a preppy outlook in life. Oh and did we mention she has a super rich background and can totally get in any Ivy League she wants? Well, you can easily channel this look by adding a bit of pep and preppy flair to your outfits. When it comes to preppy, remember this: quality counts. Or better yet: fake it ‘til you make it! If you don’t want to go all out designer, here’s a tip. Go for good quality shoes and a bag. As long as your clothes fit you well and there’s no stitch or button out of all, you can totally wear that preppy outfit. Plaid is an obvious choice but you can try out a crisp button down, a cardigan, and a fitted pencil skirt. Finish with oxfords for that preppy girl appeal.
