What to Wear: Back to School

Posted on July 25, 2019

We are nearing the end of July and that means that before we know it the summer will be over and school will be back in session. The bittersweet start of a new school year means one thing – it’s time to go back to school shopping! Whether you are a local TCU gal or heading back to your out-of-town college in a few weeks, we have some incredible outfits for all of the occasions college brings. In class, on a date, studying, at the bar – we’ve got you covered for all of your back to school fashion needs and more.

Back to School Fashion

Our stylists coordinated some chic looks for you to add to your back to school wardrobe this fall. Best news of all, so many of these looks are on sale at the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale (one of our favorite times of the year!) – you know we can’t resist a good bargain!

Comfy in the Classroom

Going for a comfortable look that’s a little more than PJ’s? Why not go with a comfy athleisure look for your back to school style?! Leggings are arguably the ‘college uniform’ staple piece. When our stylists were in college, we agreed that we collectively lived in our leggings. From what we see around the TCU campus, not much has changed! Leggings continue to be the perfect bottoms for all occasions. Perfect to wear with your favorite sorority or fraternity tee casually to class! Or when the weather turns cooler, go for a comfy fleece or flannel to help keep you warm.

For Your Big Presentation

Although our stylists agree, we’d prefer to be comfortable while sitting in a desk all day, sometimes we have to rise to the occasion and dress professionally for our classes’ special requirements. Presentations and speeches are unavoidable, and often times a more professional business attire is required by the teacher for these occasions. For times like these, why not look stylish and executive? A trendy print skirt paired with a more neutral basic is the perfect way to look fun and classy at the same time. Even better, throw on a cami and take this skirt from ‘business room’ to ‘bar’!

Stylish for a Study Date

Choosing an outfit for a study date with someone you’ve had your eye on? Wear this outfit to the library to hit the books in style. These outfits are some versatile back to school fashion pieces. Even better, this outfit could easily be transitioned to a dinner or a dessert outing after you finish studying. Can we all just take a moment of silence to gush over this Gucci bucket bag? I mean seriously, could there be a more gorgeous fall bag?

From Classroom to Bar

Going from a Friday afternoon class to a Friday evening party? Wear the tennis shoes to class and toss your booties in your bag for later! When you’re ready to hit the town maybe swap out the neutral lip tint for something a little bolder for night time.  Give your hair a tousle and lower the neckline of the dress with easy zip and you’re all set! We love some good back to school fashion that can go from day-to-night.
