Back To School Style 2009

If you’re not lucky enough to wear a uniform to school—no, seriously—choosing a different outfit to wear to school every morning can be tough. Kidzworld eliminates the guesswork with some quick tips and easy guidelines for a casual yet cool back-to=school look.

For The Girls: Timeless Items

Runway is all well and good, but your everyday style should be less about aping and more about putting your own spin on the current trends. The key to looking classic but current lies in the details ie: the accessories. Basics are important—a comfy pair of ballet flats, a pile of graphic tees, a solid black skirt—these are the looks you can build upon. Keep your clothing simple and you can experiment with wacky accessories like bright scarves, vibrant-colored tights and long chain necklaces. Metallic jewelry is still popular but beware: your jingling bangles may irritate your teacher so you might want to think about switching to plastic.

For The Guys: The Basic Blazer

If you’ve got a hot date and need a step up from the usual over-sized hoodie look, score yourself a well-fitted blazer in a neutral color like brown, grey or camel. Don’t worry, we know the preppy look isn’t for everyone, but if you pair the jacket with some deconstructed jeans, you can rock the look without feeling like an uptight ivy-leaguer. You’ll look put-together, not proper and your lady will appreciate your sartorial savvy.

For Both: Layer! Layer! Layer!

The crisp Autumn air gives you an excuse to pile it on—if you live in a warmer climate, you can mix up your look by throwing on a loose jacket made in a lighter fabic like linen. Girls, if you can’t layer clothes, you can always layer jewelry—thinly braided leather bracelets in earthy browns are a hot look that transitions easily from Summer to Fall. Guys, if your hoodie is too bulky to wear under your blazer, a lot of stores are selling blazers with the hoods already stitched in to replicate the look without the extra proportions. Either way, the goal is to pick and choose the styles and trends that work best for you. Have fun, be creative and make sure you’re comfortable.

    Excited About Heading Back to School?

    • Yeah! I can't wait to start school again.
    • Are you kidding? I'd rather eat a can of worms than go to school.
    • I don't care either way.
    • I just hope there are some hotties to make it a little less painful.

    Tell that girl that she looks so horrible she makes roadkill look beautiful. Clap your hands really loud with nobody looking and then say "HEY WHY'D YOU HIT ME?" (Don't thank me thank Diary of a Wimpy Kid) Tell someone. Tell a teacher or somebody Or ignore that excuse for a person and get on with your life without her I mean, it.
