Classroom Chic: Back-to-School Fashion

Even though this school year may look very different than previous years, you can still accentuate your style anywhere.

The new school year has begun. Even though this school year may look very different than previous years, you can still accentuate your style anywhere — even on a Zoom call.

In order to turn a few heads with your own student style, here’s some back-to-school fashion trends that you may want to pledge allegiance to.


Don’t harsh my mellow, man

One of my all-time favorite fads this year has stood the test of time. All the way from the 1960s, it’s tie-dye. I loved seeing all different one-of-a-kind creations of tie-dye that were being brought to life by kids and families during quarantine.

It’s no surprise that it’s a big trend for fall. You can even mix tie-dyes — one on top and a different one on bottom. I love an electric design tee tied in a knot in front and a pair of high-waisted jeans for a great first-day outfit.


Run circles around them

Another running trend for the past several years is athleisure. Bike shorts are fun, but they may not meet the school dress code. A great alternative is a tracksuit or tracksuit romper. Both come in shorts and short sleeves, so you can be cool, comfy and sporty all in one.


Think inside the box

Lastly, big, boxy tops are all the rage, everything from giant Champion sweatshirts to “dad shirts” that you can pull from a closet close by. A long, boxy sweatshirt or polo as a dress and a crisp white pair of Chuck Taylor high-top sneakers is a great after-school look.

Whether its school in person or an online version, take the lead with these styles and you’ll be setting trends with all your friends.
