A new season only means one thing: new clothes! During the summer we were focused on keeping cool and packing right for vacations. But the beginning of fall means the beginning of colder months and the start of a new school year, so dressing appropriately is a must. I can see preppy styles, layers, boots, and warm colors making a comeback for back to school outfits. You’ve come to the right place if you don’t have any fall style staples yet, or if you’re wondering how to style them, or even if you want to transition some of your summer outfits to fall.
14 Cozy Back To School Outfits For This Fall
New Season, New Wardrobe
I think we can all agree that a fresh new wardrobe is the best part of going back to school. Who doesn’t love shopping for new clothes and trying out new trends? After all, fall is also the season of change. That’s the best excuse to change up your wardrobe and try new trends, if you ask me. Fall is also when you can start transitioning from bright colors to warmer, cozy shades like maroon, olive, and mustard. Bust out those sweaters and get creative with layering! Keep scrolling for this season’s coziest back to school outfits.
1. Button-Front Skirt
The button-front skirt is the perfect example of a piece you can wear all year long. It works for all ages and all seasons! For cute back to school outfits this fall, style it with a sweater and boots.
2. Pops of Red
If you’re still craving for the bright colors of summer, don’t fret! Fall has a lovely color palette, which includes reds of every shade. Incorporate bright reds in your back to school outfits through accessories like boots or a plaid scarf.
Comfort is one of the most important things to look for in back to school outfits. And thankfully, the sneaker trend isn’t going away this fall. Style it with skinny jeans and a cute cover-up and it might just be one of your go-to school outfits.
4. Boho Tops
Let’s be real, if you’re in school you probably won’t have a lot of time to think about your outfits every day. For days when you want to look polished but don’t have the time, go back to the traditional jeans and blouse combo. But make sure you have fall-ready blouses in your wardrobe! Peasant blouses are super comfy and chic.
5. Light Shades
Layering is one way you can transition your light colored summer wardrobe into fall-ready back to school outfits. Light shades are a breath of fresh air during the fall!
Your arsenal of back to school outfits isn’t complete without some classic prints. If you’re sick of traditional plaid or stripes, try tartan! It will go great with other fall colors like rust orange and deep red.
