Going back to school shopping has always been a fan favorite. With universities still deciding on whether or not they will be holding the fall semester virtually, we know you’re probably wondering if going back to school shopping is even worth it. It is! Trust us; once you decide on your outfits, there is no way you won’t be psyched to go back to college – virtual or not! This is why we came up with ten outfits you should wear during your first week back at college!
You can never go wrong with an oversized sweater your first week back at college. Pair it with some high waisted jeans and your favorite sneakers, and you got the perfect look! There are two reasons why this is the ideal back to college look. One, it doesn’t look like you tried super hard and spent months trying to figure out the perfect outfit. Two, some schools start in September when the weather is a little chilly, and the classrooms are always freezing! It’s cute and practical.

These are a staple to any, and we mean any outfit! Dressed up, dressed down, lazy, chic, etc., etc., whatever you decide to pair these jeans with is guaranteed to make it look cute! An oversized sweater is lovely, a crop top, or a t-shirt can work. It’s versatile. Ripped jeans are the perfect outfit for the first week back at college! Wear it with a pair of sandals to class or pair a cute strapless top for the perfect going out outfit.

With a skirt like this, it’ll make you feel like you never left summer, you’ll be lying on the beach or by the pool all week, and no one is going to stop you. Though we will admit, an outfit like this isn’t much about being laid back. It’ll give off the vibe that you tried a little harder than an oversized sweater and ripped jeans.

Ah, the staples of summers coming for the first week back at college. Now, depending on where your college resides, weather plays an important part when it comes to choosing outfits. If you go to school in Los Angeles, chances are the weather will still be beautiful enough to head to the beach at night. With that being said, crop tops are multi-functional. Perfect for anything as small as grabbing lunch to going out at night with your girls or pairing it with jeans and heels for a night out! These are a great and affordable option! What we love about this brand is that they have so many looks, styles, and colors for one top!

You can always pair your jean jacket with a cute summer dress, a pair of shorts, leather pants, etc. The number of outfits that you can come up with when it comes to a jean jacket is almost infinite.
