Saved by the Bell: Must-Have Back-to-School Looks

As we near the end of another fleeting summer, back-to-school season is right around the corner. School supplies are often at the top of everyone’s shopping list, but in our eyes, a new school year = a new wardrobe. We recommend spending some time amplifying your closet with cute but casual outfits for school before you hit the books this year. To help, we’ve curated a collection of trendy, back-to-school looks that will surely impress all of your classmates. Check out some of our favorite lou lou items that are sure to score you an A+ on your first day of class!

What Every Casual Outfit for School Needs…

 Best Dressed: She+Sky High-Low Cuff Seater 

We all know back-to-school shopping is about hitting up your favorite cute clothing stores! This super cute piece from She+Sky is the perfect mid-weight sweater for all occasions. This piece is great for keeping you warm in cool, air-conditioned buildings, but not too heavy to wear outside when the temperature starts to sizzle. Style this back-to-school look with jeans and a short bootie, or layer it over your favorite midi dress. Your classmates will be sure to compliment this ultra-chic sweater.

Best All-Around: Scout Jewelry

What’s a cute, casual outfit for school without a little bling? Our brand-new jewelry line is complementary to any outfit. Consisting of a variety of bracelets, earrings, and necklaces, Scout Jewelry features natural stones with a bohemian flair. We love the boho-chic stone wrap bracelet or stone threader earrings for back-to-school looks heading into fall! Not to mention, they make for the best accessories for a fun social event or weekend football game.

Most Athletic: Small Nylon Tote

All books need a bag for carrying. This nylon tote is excellent for transporting all of your classroom essentials. Books, pens, iPads, and keys: you name it and this fashion tote can handle it! Offered in a variety of colors, the nylon material is perfect for the sporty girl who is always on-the-go but stylish enough to be paired with any back-to-school look. Also available in a larger size for extra carrying room!

Most Likely to Succeed: Izipizi Screen Readers

We said accessories are a must-have for any casual outfit for school, but you should also protect your eyes from blue light by investing in a pair of Izipizi screen readers. Electronic devices such as your smartphone and laptop emit blue light from the screen that can have negative long-term effects on your eyesight. The hottest item in eyewear, screen readers will block blue light emitted from your devices all while making you look smarter too ;)

 The Homecoming Queen: Hair Clips

Proving to be one of this year’s biggest accessory trends in casual school outfits, hair clips are a must-have item for your back-to-school looks. Hair clips provide a super feminine feel to any outfit while also tying everything together for a polished, put-together appearance. Clips and hair accessories are a fun way to incorporate a little flair into everyday attire but are also great for formal events like homecoming, too!
