Back to School Fashion Edit


No matter where you look these days, school-inspired fashion is everywhere. So we thought we’d handpick some of our favourite back to school fashion pieces.

From pinafore dresses, to suede loafers, to mini backpacks take a look at our top choices:


Urban Outfitters BDG Corduroy Pinafore Dress £46

You can’t really go wrong with a pinafore dress, they suit all shapes and sizes. We love this red corduroy one from Urban Outfitters, great for summer wear with a tshirt or autumn wear with a roll neck.

ASOS TALL Denim Mini Pinafore In Washed Black, £30

When in doubt opt for black. This pinafore will go with just about any other colour, why not try it with a striped top underneath.
New Look White Check Pinafore Dress £24.99
Make your pinafore the statement piece of your outfit by choosing a patterned one rather than a block colour. New Look has a great range, so be sure to check them out.


ASOS MAI Leather Brogues, £35

Just look at how smart they look in the picture, we love anything remotely oxblood coloured. Plus, brogues never seem to go out of fashion.

Topshop LOTTIE Suede Loafers, £32

Loafers are all the rage this season and Topshop has a great selection to choose from. We prefer these suede loafers to the shiny style, but get the style that suits you.

House of Fraser Office Playtime T-Bar Flats, £30

Now we’re really talking school-inspired fashion. They’re adorable though, just admit it.


Topshop Striped Border Pleat Skirt, £55

When the pleated skirt fashion came back with vengeance this season we weren’t so sure, but now we’re loving the midi pleated skirts out there. This simple Topshop number is just divine.

Zara pleated semi-long skirt, £29.99

If there’s one issue with pleated skirts, it’s to know what to wear with them. But we love how Zara have styled this outfit, paired with a green shirt and red boots.

ASOS Closet Pleated Metallic Midi Skirt, £52

Metallic is all the rage too this season, and we love that this skirt could be dressed up with heels or dressed down with a pair of trainers.


Urban Outfitters Fjallraven Kanken Classic Mini Plum Backpack, £59

One of our everlasting backpack favourites is the Fjallraven Kanken range. In the 70’s Fjällräven’s Åke Nordin created a lightweight, basic, durable backpack with plenty of room for all the essentials for a day at school, but these days they are more fashion statement than school bag.

River Island Black Square Mini Backpack, £26

Mini backpacks are s0 2016. This cute little black one from River Island is one of our top picks.

New Look Silver Leather Mini Backpack, £34.99

A.k.a the space backpack. Jazz up your bag by opting for this fun silver colour.
