No Fuss Back to School Looks for Girls


Having a girl to dress up can be a lot of fun. When they’re little, you might feel like a kid in a candy store with all of the choices there are for little girls’ outfits. As girls age, their clothing might become a bit less pink and sparkly, but are pretty all the same. You can still help your girl create just the right looks to wear to school, without spending a lot of money, and without spending a lot of time on putting it all together each morning. A simple tip to save time is to set the outfit out the night before school- that way, everything is ready to go when she’s ready to get dressed for the day.


If your little girl loves boutique styles, Screaming Owl is the perfect place for you to shop. Score tons of great deals on adorable sets for back to school! Leggings are always a great choice because they’re modest and will keep the legs warm. Pair with a printed top and a matching headband, and your little gal will be perfectly styled in an outfit that will easily go from the classroom to the playground. Screaming Owl has awesome daily deals and limited time sales, so don’t miss out on their back to school and fall looks!


Keep it simple with mix and match girls outfits from Carter’s at Babies R Us. Carter’s offers easy to wear pull on pants that are perfect for toddlers and preschoolers. Buy a few pairs of leggings or pants with several tops that can be swapped out to create different looks. Add fun jackets and Mary Jane shoes to complete the outfits! Clothing like this is easy to wear and it’s comfortable to play in all day. Once dirty, it’s also easy to wash and can be machine dried, which saves parents time when it comes to doing the laundry.


If your girl has to wear a school uniform, give her some options so she isn’t wearing the same thing every day. School uniforms for girls come in many more styles than school uniforms for boys. There are usually different shirt style options from feminine polo shirts to blouses with a collar. Mix and match colors with khaki or navy blue shorts, pants, skirts or jumpers to give your girl a little variety. Let her show off her personal style by picking out her own shoes and socks, and maybe even some hair bows or headbands to add to her outfits. School uniforms don’t have to be boring.


Teenage girls will want to go with a look that’s on trend and suits their personal style. Leggings or skinny jeans worn with tunic length tees and tops are on trend for the fall season. Pair with flats or boots, and you have a no-fuss, stylish outfit that will transition through fall and winter. A pair of black leggings is a staple in every young woman’s wardrobe. They can be worn with tunics, tees, and dresses. Not every school allows leggings to be worn on campus, so be sure to double check the dress code before sending your girl out of the house in the morning.


Another must-have clothing item for girls as they head back to school is an open cardigan. These lightweight cardigans are perfect for chilly mornings, and are light enough to keep them from being too hot in the warmth of the afternoon. Open cardigans are perfect to pair with dresses and skirts or jeans and shorts, and are available in many solid colors and prints. Play up the look by adding a statement necklace or a fun embellished flat or sandal. As long as she’s comfortable in what she’s wearing, she’ll love this simple grab and go outfit choice for the school year.

When all else fails, you can’t go wrong with jeans and a t-shirt or casual top. There are so many options with girls clothing that it can seem overwhelming to put together cute outfits for the school year. Keep it simple. Purchase wardrobe staples that can be easily mixed and matched with other pieces or played up with fun acessories. Make sure the outfits are as easy to clean as they are to wear!
