Even though I am about to be a Junior in college I *still* get first day jitters. I always like to find my classroom ahead of time and be sure that all of my supplies are ready to go the night before so that I don't forget anything. Fortunately, in high school I had a school uniform (which I loved) and never had to stress over what to wear each day since it was always the same, a plaid skirt and button down! Now as a college student I have started to understand the excitement in back to school clothing shopping and the fun of purchasing or picking out a first day outfit.
Having just packed up my belongings to head back to school (I'm probably on the road as you're reading this) I am realizing that the last thing I need to buy is more clothes before I get rid of some of the ones I have and don't wear as frequently. I was a bit embarrassed by the number of hang up bags that made their way into my trunk! So whether you're like me and need to purge some items or are shopping for versatile pieces I have put together some cute and classic first day outfits that will leave you feeling confident and comfortable while ready to learn!
You know your dress code better than I do so be sure that these outfits fit those guidelines before having your heart set on wearing them for the first day! Also, I've tried to link lots of affordable options so that you are able to get a few cute new looks without breaking the bank!
What is your go-to first day outfit? Since I am in college and there isn't a dress code I'll probably be wearing chino shorts and some sort of blouse with my jacks!
