I’m no longer in school, but I’ve always enjoyed shopping for “back to school clothes” and picking out that outfit for the first day of school. Whether you are starting your first day back, or just want to emulate the back to school style, here are my tips for dressing your best on the first day.
I believe your first day of school outfit should set the tone for the year. You’ll want to dress up slightly to avoid looking sloppy, but not too formal to be out of place in a school atmosphere. Since it’s still technically summer, I chose lighter fabrics with colors that transition nicely from summer to fall. Keep the jewelry simple, functional, and classic, and a purse/bag big enough for all the syllabus you’ll receive that day.
A shirt dress is the perfect look for going back to school since it’s a nice balance between dressed up and casual. You’ll show that you care about yourself to put time into your look without going over the top. This shirt dress below is what I would wear for the big “first day of school”.
