5 Outfits for the School Run

It’s officially back to school season, and we’re currently in a whirlwind of pencil cases, packed lunches and PE kits to organise in time for the first day of term. Can you relate? Then let’s check one more thing off your list: finding the ultimate easy to wear outfits for school. So, grab a much-needed cuppa and scroll to shop our pick of effortless ‘throw on and go’ looks. Perfect for the daily dash to the school gates (and looking good while doing it).

  1. Easy Athleisure

Activewear isn’t just for the gym, and with more of us WFH and choosing comfy-yet-Zoom-appropriate everyday outfits, the trend is set to keep growing. So, to avoid being seen in your threadbare sweatpants at the school gates, stock up on sleek, pared back basics. A simple black leggings, white t-shirt and trainers combo will take you from the playground to pilates and beyond.

  1. ‘Throw On’ Floaty Dresses

When you’re running late for the 9am bell, a floaty dress is one of your ‘no thought required’ outfits for school. Just slip on a pair of sneakers for a casual yet pulled together look, ideal if you’re en route to the office or heading for coffee after the drop off. Try a flattering shirt dress silhouette with a waist-nipping belt, or trending statement print like ditsy florals or leopard.

  1. Cute & Cosy Knits

The classic ‘jeans and a jumper’ look will keep you warm on chilly mornings. As we head into autumn, layer up your go-to outfits for school with a chunky knit jumper, cosy cardi or sleek sweater. Opt for color pop detail or a bold print to brighten things up, and wear with your go-to style of jeans, from mom or boyfriend to a straight leg or skinny fit. Effortless style, sorted.

  1. Luxe Loungewear

Our one rule when choosing outfits for school: must be comfy. And there’s nothing comfier than your fave pair of joggers. But to bypass the ‘just rolled out of bed’ look, try a chic twist on your usual lounge-around attire. Swap your favourite hoodie for a v-neck cardigan, tucking in the front to cinch at the waist. We love the glam crystal button detail on this one, too.

  1. Statement Print Shirts

If you’re dashing to the school gates between WFH meetings, look the part with a chic shirt in a stand-out print. We’re all about effortless style, and a loose-fitting shirt goes with everything already in your wardrobe. Tuck into your favourite jeans, wear with wide-legged trousers or layer over a t-shirt and leggings like a shacket for easy, statement-making style.
