Helping kids put together cute outfits for school is a fun way to teach them how to express themselves, and develop a basic fashion sense.
School clothes should be appropriate, but comfortable so children can focus. Beyond that, adding some style to the mix boosts confidence, and gives them the freedom to choose clothes that help them fit in with their friends. When kids aren’t distracted or worried about sticking out, their guard goes down and they naturally perform better.
Remember your favorite outfit as a kid? You wore it on good days or when you needed a little luck on your side. Like your past closet treasures, these cute outfits will add a little extra pep to their step from that giddy first day, in rain or shine, all the way through to the end of year celebration.
Fun and comfy
Not all girls want to wear dresses, but those who do should layer up. While classrooms are typically kept at room temperature, learning activities, gym and recess can make a heavy knit dress feel like a blanket by end of day. NextDirect carries adorable jumpers and pinafores that can be paired with a light cotton tee for an outfit your girl won’t ever want to change out of. Pair short-sleeved dresses with a fitted cardigan so they don’t come home with the sniffles.
To the rescue!
Getting kids out the door can be ten times harder when it’s damp and dreary. That is, unless they get to turn into a super hero the minute they step out the door. This Batman raincoat from Company Kids has a removable cape guaranteed to keep kids dry throughout their journey to and from school. If only shiny capes and false abs were socially acceptable for adults.
Never mind diamonds, Hello Kitty is a girl’s best friend. She’s fun and friendly and wiggles her way onto the cutest outfits for school. Lucky for girls, tutus have finally made it out of the costume shop and onto kids’ clothing racks. This tutu dress ensemble from Bealls Florida is perfect for a cool day. Match it with sparkly tights for picture day and she’ll feel like a star.
Introducing children to eco-friendly clothing shows them that conscious living extends beyond the recycling bin. These kids’ hemp cargo pants by Soul Flower have stylish, but casual pin stripes, pockets for storing the day’s odds and ends, and a drawstring for a comfortable fit. Worn with a fitted organic tee, your son or daughter will be ready to champion the environment. He can begin by acing that science test.
School colors and cheer gear
Cheer gear and being super cute go hand-in-hand and Gear 4 Cheer has options for outfit combinations that go way beyond cheer practice and game day. Jump on the school bus with a coordinated sweatpants and hoodie look that is cozy and trendy. Find outfits in colors that match your school team, or have the cheer team order everyday outfits that spread their school spirit throughout the classroom.
Popular with adults and kids alike, graphic tees are a year-round go-to item. They add a vibrant pop under a sweater or button down, and look great with trousers, jeans or skirts. The ever-changing variety of graphic tops available at trendy shops like Delia’s gives older girls endless options. Be sure to pay attention to size charts when shopping at stores for young adults.
A traditional school boy or girl outfit fits well and looks good, but most importantly it makes a child feel focused and ready to learn. This head-to-toe look at Neiman Marcus combines simple straight leg jeans with a colorful, vintage-inspired cardigan. The long tee underneath adds fun and personality. This cute outfit for school will make any kid look neat and ready to go.
