What you're wearing on the first day

12 ideas for easy and impressive first-day-back outfits—from you!
143 Comments | Add Yours

so, I'm an extreme planner, and already have my first day of school outfit planned. However, I don't know what shoes to wear. I'm going to be a freshman, and so I don't want to look like the "annoying freshman" It's a white fitted t-shirt with a pocket, blue skinny jeans, a scarf that is all kinds of colors. What shoes should I wear?


Hey! I think chuck taylors or similar sneakers would look cute with that. Colorful flats would also be good. Anything colorful that complements your scarf would really complete the look Smile

I think that You try skinny jeans, Tank Top with high heels.You can get the best dresses when you visit smccloset online shopping store.

For the first day, I'm probably going to go for a graphic tank, a blazer, skinny jeans and flats.

Ok so for the first day I was thinking of wearing This skirt with a black tank top and that color blue shrug.  I'm like really tall my waist is fairly skinny and I have a little bigger thighs. My BFF says I should wear it but I don't know if I should just wear a pair of jeans cute tshirt and sparkly converse because kids at my school don't really dress up. And if I did wear the skirt outfit any shoe suggestions? But no heels! What should I do? Thanks in advance


Hey girl! Ballet flats go with everything, so try that! I say wear the skirt- your friend would tell you if you shouldn't.  If your'e still nervous, run it by your mom, and she'll for sure tell you what's what. xoxo

I know exactly what I want to wear but I don't know where to get it! I am thinking of a cute (slightly higher than the knee or mid-thigh; my school has strict dress codes) boho lace dress with a braided belt and a cardigan. Any ideas on where to get them? I'm small and slender so idk where to go! Any ideas?


Hey Girl! Try Delias, Lulu's, or Nordstroms! I love all of their dresses and they all have smaller sizes! Good Luck! Sounds like an adorable outfit!

I seriously need your help! I don't know what to wear on the first day of school! Tell me which I should wear:
1. Leather boots, shorts, and and off the shoulder tee
2. A varsity jacket and skirt
3. varsity jacket and shorts
4. flowy tee with shorts


Hey girl! I don't know your personal style, so wear whichever one says "you" the most.  I love the idea of a varsity jacket and a skirt, but if you've been dying to rock the leather boots, wear those! xoxo

by fashion_bug on 8/20/2012 12:33:17 PM


For the first day of school, I am probably going to wear a gray and white striped t shirt and either jean shorts or gray skinny jeans (depending on the weather). But if I wear the Gray skinny jeans, would that be weird with the gray and white t shirt because they are both gray? Also, I don't own a lot of shoes, (1 sandals, 3 winter boots, 1 coach sneaker,and a flip flop) the school don't allow flip flops, so what shoe would go good with the outfit? Also, what kind of accessories should I wear with it? Thanks so much!!!


Hey girl! The grey shirt and jeans may look too bland, but if you spice it up with bright accessories, it can look really cool! Try it with the sandals, or see if your mom will let you get Keds or Toms (which are comfortable and great for fall and spring). xoxo

i am wearing a floral skirt with a striped top and a blue necklace or a black and white one haven't made mind yest and my peep toe flats.most of the time i don't mix patterns but it works in this outfit

by sydstar1999 on 8/17/2012 8:46:38 AM


I'm wearing either my gray skinnies or a pair of shorts, either a tank top or a tee shirt, my BONGO gray sweatshirt, a pair of black flats or Converse, GeoGirl Feather Mascara, and lip gloss! Yay!

by jrprodigy12 on 8/17/2012 1:15:20 AM


OK I know I just posted somehineg like this earlier, but I seriously need help. I'm going into 5th grade, and I have dark, long leg hair that I want to gt rid of. I'm at my Dad's house for the rest of the summer. Since I live with my mom, would it be less awkward to text her if I can start shaving when I get back to my mom's or ask her in person. If I ask her while I'm at my Dad's she can think. I can give her reasons. But I'm nervous! Or should I just suck it up and not start shaving my legs? And what should I text her? Help!


Hey girl! Wait 'til you're back at your mom's house- you want to be able to talk to her about it.  Do your research beforehand and come up with reasons why it would be good for you to shave your legs.  Don't be nervous- the worse thing she can say is no, and then you can ask her (politely) when a good time to start shaving would.  Every girl has to have this convo with her mom at some point, so don't worry about it! xoxo

for me im wearing: new green polo, khaki shorts with bright blue belt, (maybe) my bright green shoes, (if i can find them, or my toms if i cant) thats it.

by loppyears12 on 8/16/2012 8:08:58 PM


I'm wearing a loose, white pocket tank, a jean jacket, a tie-dye skirt from Aeropostale, and black peep-toe ballet flats. I'm accessorizing with a coral flower headband, my teal watch, and a scarf. I'm so excited!

by AlwaysDreamer on 8/11/2012 8:30:37 AM


What am I suposed to wear on the first day because my school wears uniforms Monday-Thursday. We can only wear casual clothes on Friday or when we're allowed to.

by girlystuff121 on 4/19/2012 9:29:00 PM


MOD MOD MOD I wear a lot Of sweat pants and Their Boy pants too not girl sweat pants cause their soo comfortable but i feel like its me but i don't feel like i fit in cause all the other girls look so girly and lots of make up but i feel ugly in make up and i don't know why i feel like this and i just got this new boys Winged hat and i wanna wear it to school but i feel too much like a boy but i like it i just don't know if i'd fit in, It it bad for me to dress like a boy and i don't like girls either im fully straight but is it bad to wanna dress like a guy sometimes ??

Hey girl,

That's not weird at all -- the world is full of tomboys, and not every girl needs to wear makeup! Every girl has her own style, so wear what makes you feel your best (as long as it's appropriate for school!).

I'm short, have a big chest (size D cup), big thighs and big stomach. So what would look good on me? Ps skinny jeans look ok on me but they make me look way shorter


Hey! You should invest in some cute A-line shifts, short skirts, blouses with a gently curved waistline, single button jackets, wrap shirts and dresses, pants that flare at the leg, and long fitted shirts or sweaters. Good luck!

by Girlygirl0906 on 3/9/2012 6:48:13 PM


Hey minaxoxo, anything would look cute on you. Sweaters, skinny jeans, dresses with tights would look really nice. Hope this helps!'xoxo

MOD MOD! (I'm new and not sure how this works, but...)
I had a small chest considering I'm only 13 (well I really turn 13 tomorrow, so whatever) and a medium sized but, a really tiny waist, long legs, i guess broad shoulders. What are the best outfit to wear when i got i got back from winter break? thanks Smile Lynae P.

by Minaxoxo on 1/7/2012 8:22:30 PM


Mod Mod!!!!!!!!!!!!!
im very heavy(not proud of it) im round at the stomach my thighs are a little big.but my legs are long. what shouod i wear?

Hey girlie,

You sound like you have a pear+apple shaped body! To best dress those body shapes, you should try wearing V neck tops, belts or wrap dresses that highlight your waist, earrings and necklaces to draw attention to your shoulder/head area, straight and slightly flared skirts, shirts that are kept untucked, tailored blazers, tops with embellishments like ruffles or wide sheer sleeves, and straight leg jeans Smile

I have a larger chest, but my hips are so SMALL, and my legs are long and skinny. I'm rocking a new style this year too, and that would be a rebel princess. Are there any ideas for me?

Hey girlie,

Try shorter skirts with rockin' details (black jewelry, silver metallics, prints like plaid or tiny skulls, etc.) on top! That's perf for your body type and will also showcase your new style. A-line skirts can also add a little bit of femininity to an otherwise hard or "rebellious" look. (And it'll give you volume around your bottom!) You could also try silky materials on top with skinnies and black boots on the bottom Smile

I spent the last 4 years saving up for a 5,000 dollar tiffany necklace that when me and my mom where shopping there fund but my mom wn't buy me anything there that's over 3,000 so I saved up 2,000 dollars and the necklace is gone but theres one even cuter and the same price but later that day we where looking at coach purses and I saw a super cute purse the same price as the necklace! And my mom has the same rule for surses so which shuld I buy?

I just started a free dress school, and I was SO excited for the first day! I wore this blue and brown tank top that was a v-neck and had ruffles going down it. I wore a brown tee under it, and a cute brown skirt from forver 21, with sandals!

by LAS625 on 10/8/2011 10:14:34 PM


I'm a pretty curvy girl, but I have a very long torso and short legs D: Are there any good style tips for my body type?


Hey honey! If you want to elongate your legs, bottoms that are longer in length, like maxi skirts and this season's trend, flared trousers can instantly add a few inches to your legs. Wearing heels (the same color as your pants/skirt) will of course make you look taller as well. If you have a long torso perhaps you can opt for shorter shirts like cropped tops instead of tunic-styled tops. This should do the trick to balance you out.

I am going to a football game and the teams colors are black and orange and I want to wear my combat boots but i can't think of something that would be cute but still be warm enough for at night. Any suggestions?

Try combat books with black leggings and an oversized orange shirt or sweater! If you don't have that (orange is a pretty rare color), try wearing jeans, a fitted black tee, and a light jacket over that Smile

MOD MOD MOD!!I asked my BFF and sent her pics since we don't live near each other (I moved) and now I don't know. I think It's a little "over the top". I'm thinking of wearing a white ruffled front shirt with a dark green cardigan type jacket. Then kinda like a dark wash pair of jeans and flats. I'm going to wear jewelry and everything but I don't know if it's over the top.

I think that sounds fine! xoxo kerra

I'm probably going to wear a nautical themed white and blue tank top, with a hoodie if it's a bit cooler in the morning, and probably skinny jeans Smile
you guys should consider featuring some Garage jeans in your articles! They're pretty good quality, although they can be a bit more expensive.. 35 to 40.. But there are always sales! I like how their jeans have polyester, to help the jeans keep their shape.. But I still don't have a pair even though I've tried on so many.. I have too many jeans already haha. But my friend has so many pairs of their jeans and jeggings. She loves them. Haha I'm so jealous..

Thanks for the suggestion!! Smile

What should i wear for a bts top? I am prob. going to wear the ae shorts u have in thispost (got em a while ago) what'd go with it? It's going to b warm! MOD MOD MDO MOD MOD MODMOd

Cute shorts, totally GL approved Smile Try pairing them with a ruffled tank top like the one in the pic - you could always put a thin cardigan over top just in case your school is air conditioned! Or try a trapeze-style top - it's relaxed, a lil summery, and perfectly pretty.

MOD MOD MOD I'm an hour glass figure, kinda curvy, and my legs are really long. i've been wearing skinny jeans, and i love them, but i recently started not liking how they make me look wide because i have "a dancers theighs" meaning im really muscled. what types of jeans could i wear to make my legs look less chubby, while staying tighter at least around the butt? thanks


Hey girl, try looking for a different fit around the ankles. You might like a straight leg or boot cut shape because they aren't as tight at the bottom. You could even try a flare leg. Shop around and try different style to see which ones you like!

by risadancer on 8/26/2011 1:03:55 PM

Ok so for bts i really wanna straighten my hair! I have before and it looks super cute! Problem is, I don't have a straightner, and if i did, me or my mom don't know how to use one Frown Is there any other way that'll keep it straight all day? Or even wavy? I have curly drk. brown hair that is to my shoulders, It's not tight curls, but not wavy either. If u have any other styles for curls I'd like that too! Thanks!

Hey girlie, if you want wavy hair you could use a curling iron. Using a straightener is simple and you can buy one for relatively cheap at a drugstore.

Hey girl, Some girls get their eyelashes professionally tinted- its not very expensive and lasts for a few weeks, giving the effect of mascara. Maybe you mom will let you try that!

Also with some tawny colored shoes that look a little like moccasins. Or would a plaid shirt and cute navy tank look good, with some navy sandals?


Hey girl, they both sound adorable! Wear whatever you feel more comfortable in.

by alakoj on 8/23/2011 4:20:07 PM


Here's another BTS shopping tip: clothes are getting more and more expensive these days!! So, try a consignment shop instead (like Plato's Closet... look it up now!). Brand name tops, dresses, and jeans for a fraction of how much it's actually worth? It's the greatest!! Sure, the things may have been worn by other people, but you can easily throw it in the washer and make it your own! (:

my parent basically hides anything decent towrite with from me so I have to use barely sharpened penicils and pens that barely write and stuff bcuz she freaks out if i ruin a writing utensil worth writing with (chew on, lose etc)would crayons be legible enough to use for my homeschool work im tired of dull pencils and messed up pens


Hey babe. Why can't you sharpen the pencils or grab an inexpensive box of pens at an office supply store? Pencils and cheap pens are pretty standard school (or homeschool) fare. I would stay away from crayons. They aren't terribly legible and look a little immature.

3. I rly dont wanna do a curriculem homeschooling but my mom n i r scared the lady at the school board workers office will make us cuz shes annoying and stuff even though its not a law can u stop one of those programs once u start it


Just because nobody else you know homeschools doesn't mean it's the wrong choice for you. And unfortunately, when it comes to homeschool technicalities, I don't know all the specifics. You might want to check with someone else at the school board, or a homeschooling organization to see what your options are.

dairy isnt that good for my stomach but i always eat it without really caring even though i know i should be, how do i avoid it? thanks!


Dairy is all around you, babe. You can only avoid it if you choose not to eat or drink it. Try to find substitutes for your favorite things, like milk and ice cream, and alternatives for other munchies you tend to eat a lot. Once you get into the habit of not eating dairy, it won't be a big deal at all.

Im really really into fashion and want to get into modeling buisness. People always say I should do it, im really pretty, ect. . So how do I get into it? I know there are modeling scouts and agencies but are there any that your positive arent a scam and that I can trust if I sent them some pictures? thanks so much for your help!! XOXO

Hey girlie,

The main rule is NEVER trust a company that asks you to pay money upfront. Real modeling agencies will never ask that of you. Instead of listening to random "scouts" at the mall who call you pretty and try to scam your fam into paying money to them, try getting your parents on board. See if they have any friends whose children have pursued modeling, or even ask your school's guidance office, a local hair/beauty salon, or theater for advice/contacts. Reach out to everyone and don't be afraid to give someone a call to ask for their help and advice. It's important to network, aka talk to as many people in/around the business as possible so they can help you through it. As long as you're dedicated, stay patient, and work hard, you'll achieve your goals Smile

Mod mod mod mod mod
I am wearing a black t-shirt under a printed black and cream-ish colored tank for the first day of school. I have some aryia brand jean shorts, and my flip flops are brown (guys, because I can find my size in womens, (12)). I was just wondering what are some ideas for makeup? Oh, and I use eyeshadow as eyeliner (just applying it with the side of the eyeshadow brush) but it doesnt stay all day and becomes uneven. Do you know how to make it stop doing that, or any tips to help? Thanks! (:
Sorry, just one more thing...what would be a good color for my nails (toes and fingers?) I have greenish blue, pink, orange, lime green, gold, blue confetti, and silver sparkles. Thanks again Smile

Hey girl,

This outfit sounds super cute. For your nail polish, try a light color to brighten your outfit a lil bit. Blue confetti, pink, or greenish blue would be my picks! As for your makeup, try applying a thin layer of moisturizer on your face - even your eyelids (but be careful, don't get it in your eyes). Then apply your makeup. It helps keep powder more in place throughout the day! Just keep it simple for the first day of school - eyeshadow as eyeliner, maybe a coat of mascara, and a dash of lip gloss. It'll take no time to get ready in the morning and it'll make ya feel your best!

MOD MOD MOD! So I asked my mom about back to school shopping but she says that since the weather isn't changing I don't need new clothes. I love my clothes but... most of my tops are the same ones I have had for years and I feel embarrassed wearing them all the time. What can I say to my mom to change her mind?


Hey girl! If your mom said no, maybe offer to pay for some of it if you want new clothes. Or try new things with your old ones, like belting a shirt or layering a few tanks. They will look as good as new!

does someone want to give me advice? im planning on wearing this cute tank top that is like a light beige and it says show of ur spots with a cute cat on it. thatll go with a black cardigan and maybe a charm braclet. the shoes are simple ballet flats with a bow. so tell me, should i wear leggings (the shirt is long enough), light wash skinny jeans or my dark wash boot cut jeans?????

by 86cutie on 8/22/2011 12:16:32 PM


MOD!!! MOD!!! MOD!!! I have a jean dilemma..... i love the look of skinny jeans but since i've been competitively dancing and playing soccer for 8 years i have really muscular, athletic theighs that look really fat in skinny jeans. How can i get the skinny jean look without making my theighs look fat? and are there diffrent styles of skinny jeans that would make my theighs look skinnier? thanks Dance4ever_89


Hey girl, a good way to show off your athletic legs might be a straight leg or boot cut jean. You could also try jeggings. Don't be afriaid to try on new types of jeans at the store to get the look you want!

by kakes6416 on 8/22/2011 11:12:47 AM


Picture Day is in a couple of days and I don't know what to wear! I was thinking about wearing a pink white flowery tank under a jean jacket. What shorts/jeans would go with that? What else would be cute for a 7th grade picture day?
Also, I need help on what to wear on the first day of school. Thank you soooo much!!! <3


Hey girl, its a good idea to wear something basic for picture day, so when you get the picture all the attention and focus is on your face! You can wear any type of pants with a jean jacket, sometimes mixing jeans is a cool look!

I love this! I am gonna wear a really pretty flowy tank top (its 3 fingers wide! Tong), black skinny jeans or jean shorts depending on the weather, a bracelet from delias, and earrings from claires. As for shoes, I will probably wear flip flops if i can't get new flats cuz mine dont fit me

I'm wearing a big, flowy (yet still somehow form-flattering) white shirt with a rose stenciled on the front, dark wash boot-cut jeans, and my classic green converse.

by fudgemonkey on 8/22/2011 7:02:43 AM


i think you can not go wrong with skinny jeans and a tee shirt with your style (like ur fave shirt or watever) just some thing that says you

by biebersnumber1 on 8/22/2011 4:02:35 AM


I'm not exactly sure yet... probably skinny jeans, a cute t-shirt, converse, jewelry, and a bit of makeup, like I wear every day. In my mind, the point is to make a first impression of who you are all the time, not just the first day. But I might wear some flats or add a cool vest for the occasion :]

by katie10marie96 on 8/22/2011 12:43:45 AM


A blue and black botton up a black lace cami denim short and some black and some black sandals.

Madisons outfit sounds so adorable!

by Deedles1621 on 8/21/2011 7:01:08 PM


Well since I already went back to school over a week ago I'll teel what I decided to wear. I wore a really cute v-neck vintage apt.9 tee and a really cute pair of rewind cut off shorts with some jelly band bracelets and 3 coats of mascara with some concealer made get some fantastic comments. I would def recomend girls with thick hair to wear their hair in a messy bun with a blue or red head band if they have brown hair. And accesories wise a chain necklace looks great on white and grey shirts and bottoms might find a cute pair of short sorts that are stonewashed or ripped. Cowgirl boots look good with short shorts.

by iamawesome2 on 8/21/2011 3:48:39 PM


I have two first days, (technically 3, but one happened already, and it was for an online class, so I think I did my homework either in pajamas or while I was running around getting ready to go somewhere, lol.) I have no idea what I'm wearing to either of them. One of my first days is my first day of on-campus college classes, and I'm 16, so I'll most likely be the youngest person there. And the other is my first day for my homeschool co-op. I have a high-waisted skirt I made that I may wear to one of them, tho, because its incredibly cute. And, if i ever finish it, I may wear this t-shirt I'm embroidering for the other first day.

by rockinlishy on 8/21/2011 3:41:31 PM

by mia847 on 8/21/2011 3:07:01 PM


Ha!Everyone remembers what I wear because every thing that I wear is so out-there, and I always get a comment on it. It's like Lady Gaga wearing the same wacky dress twice- it's just wrong! I never wear the same shirt twice in a school year. (unless I really like it) On the first day I think I'm going to wear a brownish flowery peasant blouse with dark washed flare jeans and curl my hair for a total 70s vibe.

by luvlautner1999 on 8/21/2011 2:58:38 PM
