Cute Outfit Inspirations for Your Kid’s First Day of School
Sure, it’s been a decade (or two) since you’ve gone back to school, but you still remember how crucial it was to start things off on the right foot by nailing your first-day look. Our friends at Justice know the feeling too, and they’re here to help you get your daughter ready for her BTS debut. Here’s a slew of outfit ideas from Justice that’ll make her feel confident enough to take on a whole new year.
A SKIRT MORE VERSATILE THAN HER BUDDING RÉSUMÉ
All right, so you might not be worrying about her academic résumé quite yet. (And if you are…calm down, she’s 8!) But it’s still important to make a good impression, and nothing says “first day” like a classic skirt. Skip the stiff white blouse and pick a top that reflects her personality. Is she no-nonsense about recess? Go with a tough little moto jacket and denim button-up shirt. Is she all about soft fabrics? A pullover hoodie will go over well. Or maybe she’s outspoken, in which case a printed white tee will strike her fancy.
Get the look: Plaid skirt ($25); Pocket hoodie ($33); Denim button-up shirt ($27); Moto jacket ($45); Embellished sweatshirt ($25); Glitter-heel booties ($40); Panda wristlet ($6); Sequin newsboy cap ($13)
Statement Joggers That Prove Fashion Loves Comfort
If she’s keen on matching, top off the look with a pullover in the same tie-dye pattern. Alternately, go for an ombré button-up or contrasting pink jacket and metallic accessories. This comfortable outfit is an easy way to transition from soft summer pj’s and swimsuits to back-to-school attire.
Blue Jeans She Can Wear Anywhere
Whether she wants everyone to know she’s not afraid of fourth grade (with a daring red sweater), is looking to stay on trend (with seasonal florals) or likes to start off the year on anedgy note (with a cool camo hoodie), one thing is for sure: These jeans will be the most versatile thing in her closet. Bonus points for ultra-shiny sneakers that are practical but fun enough to squash any first-day jitters.
Camo Leggings That Refuse to Blend In
Maybe she’s sporty, or maybe bold prints are her new thing. Camo leggings work with just about anything, from a gray printed blouse and a bomber jacket to a strong red shirt with cold-shoulder cutouts. Or she could go for this jersey-inspired top, which lets everyone know that school might be back in session but she’s still living for the weekend.
