Note: Many schools enforce dress code, so if you can't wear some of these outfits, don't break the school rules; just modify them. If you can't wear short shorts, wear jeans. If you can't wear a crop top, find a normal length shirt or high-waisted bottoms. These outfits are just for inspiration, you don't have to copy them. Feel free to add your own take on these outfits and be yourself!
You could wear a dress for your first day of school back if you feel like being dressy and girly. Of course, you should have a bigger bag or a backpack for school. And if your school doesn't allow you to wear sandals, you can switch them out for flats or sneakers.
I love this collage of outfits. I think all these tank tops are super cute and I love the shoes that go with all of them. Tank tops are loose, comfortable, and give off a carefree vibe that make you look like you didn't try too hard. If your school doesn't allow you to wear tank tops, you can wear a cardigan over them.
This shirt is pretty cool. Even though it has cutouts, it wouldn't break dress code because it's still a t-shirt style top and the belt and shorts together pull the outfit together while still looking casual.
This is a super cute ensemble, although it might be a little too revealing for some schools. I would like to wear this for my first day of school because I think it's sophisticated because of the form-fitting skirt and causal at the same time because of the cotton tank. You can always opt for a t-shirt and a longer skirt.
These two outfits are also a bit dressed up but casual as well. The denim tank paired with the black high-waisted shorts and flats are a classic look, while the white, flowy tank with floral shorts and Converse are a dressed-down outfit, yet still put together.
This is a perfect outfit for the first day of school if you're laidback and easygoing. It's a simple white tank with denim shorts and a necklace to spruce it up. It won't take too much effort to throw on in the morning so you'll be out the door quickly and on time for school.
These outfits are definitely for the girls who like to play dress-up. The blouses, skirts, dress, and oxfords scream preppy. Super adorable and put-together for the girls who like to put in a little more effort and are also the people who are most likely to continue dressing up throughout the school year. If I had this type of wardrobe, I'd dress up every day too.
This is what I mean abut the power of a cardigan. Since crop tops can be a bit revealing and high-waisted shorts might be a little too short, a cardigan can save your outfit from showing a little too much. Plus, they're perfect for schools that don't have super warm weather like California or other places. But you might have to wear longer shorts if your dress code is too strict.
These ensembles are also great for schools that start with cooler weather. The first outfit even layers a top, flannel, and cardigan. The second outfit warms up a crop top and circle skirt with a cardigan as well. Of course, if where you live is even colder, you can switch the shorts for jeans and add tights to your skirt.
These last outfits are classic and "tumblr-inspired" with high-waisted shorts and cardigans. They're good for weather that isn't too cold or warm since there aren't any heavy layers.
