Styling Tips for the Cutest Back to School Outfits

It’s September again which means classes have started and summer is no more. It also means that the weather is slowly starting to get chilly and your adorable summer clothes might not work until it gets warm again. Figuring out perfect outfits for your new classes can be stressful at times. Here are 5 ways you can easily put together cute outfits for your fall classes.


Long Blazers

If you scroll through Instagram, you’re more than likely to see long blazers as part of many influencers’ outfits. Not only do they look super cute but they’re also great for fall weather. You can pair a long blazer with a pair of casual jeans or with a skirt. It’ll definitely make your outfit look more professional without being too formal - the perfect addition for your school outfits.


Layer Up

September weather is perfect to start layering up; it’s always a bit chilly in the morning then it gets warmer in the afternoon. That’s why wearing a cardigan or a blazer with your outfit is a good decision. Not only are they a cute addition to your outfit, but they’re comfortable too. You can find nice ones to compliment different looks for a relatively low price (tip: check out Old Navy & Forever 21).


Matching Sets

These Clueless-like matching sets are super popular right now. They’re adorable and easy to wear. All you need is a matching skirt + blazer or a matching skirt + top and most of your outfit is planned. Pair it with a cute hat or some layered jewelry and you’ve got an IG worthy outfit.  


Your Favourite Jeans

Putting together a cute outfit can be time consuming. However, if you’re in a rush or feel like you have nothing to wear, just pair a cute top with some jeans and you’re good to go. Oh, and add a cute pair of booties to complete the look and voilà, you’re ready for the Fall semester.


Patterned Skirts

From plaid to houndstooth, all patterned skirts are in at the moment. Tuck in a solid colouror graphic T-Shirt and wear some cute booties and your outfit is complete. When it gets colder, over the knee boots would also look killer with patterned skirts.


If you use these styling tips when you pick out your outfits, you’ll for sure look and feel great! Plus, they’ll all make cute OOTD posts for Instagram.
