With back to school time quickly approaching, parents and kids alike are busy stocking up on supplies, planning lunches, and of course, picking out the perfect outfit. Whether she’s headed back to high school or off to her first-ever day of college, your girl needs a polished look that’ll impress her teachers and fellow students alike. And while it’s easy to spend hours deliberating over a pants-and-tee combo, a dress is a great option that can help her feel confident and put together at the same time.
For the little fashionista, a striped dress is a classic staple that’s easy to style with a belt to add shape or a cardigan for added warmth come winter. This girls’ cotton dress is soft and light, with a bow and floral print that’s sure to make her stand out in a crowd. This corduroy dress is another great back to school choice, with a fall feel while still remaining lightweight and flexible for September heat waves or cooler temperatures down the road.
If your girl’s love of fashion extends to a more casual style, she’ll find that a pair of jeans and a T-shirt can work just as well for her back to school wardrobe as it does for her weekend adventures. And if your girl prefers a more feminine touch, a t-shirt dress in a fun pattern is a versatile option that she can style with a belt for more definition or with a long-sleeve T-shirt underneath for cooler weather.
As your tween heads back to school, she’ll love the opportunity to show off her personality with this patterned dress that sums up all of her favorite things (cats, rainbows, and ice cream, of course). And if she wants a more polished look, this denim dress is easy to pull together with a long-sleeve tee or a flannel shirt layered on top.
Even if your daughter likes to keep it casual, she’ll still want a couple of dresses in her closet for those special occasions or Picture Day. This ruffle dress is super cute and would look great with leggings or tights in cooler months, and the pink star dress is a nod to her favorite movie that will definitely have her looking extra cute.
When it comes to a stylish and practical outfit for back to school, nothing beats the classic combination of a skirt and blouse. And while a printed skirt is great for summer, as the weather cools down, your tween can style her skirt with a cozy half-zip sweater for a sophisticated outfit that can take her from class to the coffee shop or her internship.
And while she’ll likely outgrow this midi skirt in the blink of an eye, she’ll get plenty of wear out of it during the year ahead. Made by a small, sustainable company in Portland, this midi skirt is a versatile piece that your daughter can use as she grows and moves up to more formal attire for events. Back to school dresses
