62 Back-to-School Fashions

From School Girl-Inspired Looks to Casual School Clothing

— August 19, 2013 — Life-Stages
With back-to-school season just around the corner, fashion brands, companies and retailers are getting ready to put out their latest products to send the youth back to their classes in style. These back-to-school fashion looks are a perfect excuse to rebuild your wardrobe and channel your inner preppy vibe.

With the end of summer and the beginning of September, most fashion looks tend to mix preppy fall layers with delicate colors. From oxford button-ups, slouchy pullovers to lace up sneakers, going back to school is about carefully balancing looking fashion-forward with comfort. Soft sweaters, skinny blue jeans and slouchy t-shirts are a must to get you through late night study sessions, walking to class and even a few house parties. Flip through these back-to-school styles and find a preppy collegiate look that suits you.
