What to Wear: Back to School 2018

Posted on August 16, 2018

Fall is just around the corner and for those of you who are students, it’s time for our back to school fashion guide. TCU classes are back in session this upcoming Monday, and with other schools and universities starting back soon it’s the perfect time to share our picks for our favorite back to school fashion. Whether your classes require casual dress, professional attire or if you roll out of bed and head straight to class in your pajamas – we’ll have you looking fabulous and feeling great no matter what!

With so many gorgeous fall colors and trends (stay tuned for next week’s blog about our favorites!), fall fashion has never been so exciting!

Athlesisure/Comfy Casual (Upgrade from Pajamas)

Leggings might as well be a part of most college student’s daily uniform. Ultra-comfortable, ideal for walking to classes and able to keep your warm in those freezing classrooms? SOLD! We found some fun, trendy leggings (and some in purple, just for TCU!). Pair it with a simple hoodie, tie-waist tee, windbreaker or your favorite sorority/fraternity tee and your comfy, but stylish ‘fall uniform’ is complete. Throw on your current sneakers or chaco’s and head off to class looking much more polished than wearing what you woke up in (BUT just as comfortable!) Casual back to school fashion has never been so easy!
