Back to School for Her

Favorite Back to School Outfits for Girls

Choosing cute outfits can be one of the best parts of having a girl! Whether you're sending her off to school, getting her ready for a piano recital, or helping her dress for a party, the right clothes will make her feel extra special and look adorable. An outfit can also say something about her personality, so think about what makes her unique and how you can capture a little bit of her spirit with the right dress or top.

Jumping for Joy

When she's running, jumping, and going wild on the monkey bars, she needs clothes that are easy to move in. Give her some stretchy girls leggings, especially our Iron Knee leggings which feature tough patches that prevent rips and tears, but are completely invisible from the outside. Add a matching tee and some sneakers along with a jean jacket and she'll be all set.

Picture Perfect

School picture day is a big deal. You want her to look extra sweet in that photo since you'll be sending it out to friends and relatives come Christmas. She probably won't want to wear that stiff dress with the itchy lace collar though, so find something that feels as good as it looks. Girls' cardigans over a tee always look nice and she can even wear jeans on the bottom since they won't be visible in her portrait.

Happy Holidays

The holiday season is filled with gatherings and celebrations, so make sure she has a few dresses for girls to wear – they look pretty and feel warm. Add a pair of tights and her patent leather Mary Jane shoes and she'll be set to sing carols, eat cookies and sit on Santa's lap. If she really wants to wear pants, try some leggings with a festive sweater. A headband or hair clip will add the perfect finishing touch.

On the Run

Does your daughter love sports and staying active? Give her some girl's yoga pants to wear when she's practicing gymnastics, jogging around the block, or practicing her warrior pose. They're great for stretching and running and make it easy to get fit while having fun. Just make sure she has some supportive footwear and a breathable top that wicks away perspiration.

Life of the Party

Birthday parties are usually filled with adoring parents taking photos, so have your daughter put on a cute rugby dress. The relaxed fit is good for playing around and having fun, but she'll look lovely in each and every snapshot. If it's too chilly for a dress, go for girl's jeggings and one of her favorite tunic tops instead.

Fabulous in Fall

There are so many fall traditions that make the season memorable. She'll look adorable wearing a soft flannel shirt and jeans down at the pumpkin patch, and this outfit is also nice for hayrides. If you're going for a walk in the park to see the fallen leaves, have her put on some comfy girl's joggers and a fleece jacket.

Sleepy Time

She'll need cozy jammies to sleep soundly all night long. Girls' pajamas will keep her toasty and they'll never itch or scratch – she'll be happy to keep them on for your pancake breakfast, too. Add some slippers and a matching girls' robe when winter arrives and the house is extra chilly in the morning. 

You might even need to send her in her favorite pair of pajamas to school as some schools have a pajama day. If she’s participating, be sure to have a pair of cute slippers that she can wear outside instead of her everyday house slippers for sanitary reasons.  

Snow Day

Making snow angels and catching downy flakes on your tongue is a magical experience, but make sure she's dressed for the occasion. Have her put on snow bibs before going out to play and don't forget to zip up her warm winter coat. Mittens and a hat (or some fuzzy earmuffs) are important, too.

Special Occasions

When there are a few big events on the calendar, like a school concert or celebration at church, make it magical by giving her some dresses that twirl. She'll feel like a princess whenever she wears one along with some ballet flats and matching tights. Fix her hair in a braid or bun and if she's old enough, let her wear a touch of lip gloss, too.

Valentines Day

During the school year, she’ll be able to tell her friends how much she adores them by dropping Valentine's Day treats in their Valentine's Day boxes. If she’s feeling extra festive she’ll want to wear her favorite red sweater, heart print dress, or a pink Valentine’s Day graphic t-shirt. She can wear all three with a pair of black, white, red, or pink leggings and low-top sneakers. Adding a festive headband, scrunchy, or bows to her hair will create a polished look for the holiday. She can even go as far as wearing heart print socks with her low tops since they’ll be able to show. 

Saint Patrick’s Day

Do you remember getting pinched at school only to remember you forgot to wear green on the 17th of March? Be sure that you don’t forget to add a little green to her outfit on this day. Whether it’s small such as a green hair tie, green nail polish, green earring studs, or something much bigger such as a pair of green joggers or a t-shirt, make sure that it’s something that won’t come off such as a hoodie, sweater, or jacket. Those pinches will be waiting for her as soon as she gets hot and has to take her green off. 

We suggest wearing a matching jogger set in a fun color that incorporates the color green with a solid white or black t-shirt underneath. Since the weather is changing from winter to spring, it could be a little chilly so it gives her the option to keep her sweatshirt on if need be.

That pretty much covers all of the celebrations and occasions during the school year. This list should keep you prepared and ready for some of her best outfits of the day!
