Casual Outfit Ideas for School
We all know the struggle of waking up before school and having no idea what to wear – cue the early-morning fashion meltdown!
Instead of throwing on mismatched sweats or leggings, though, try some of these casual outfit ideas instead, which you can quickly pull together. They are school-friendly and you’ll be able to wear them in multiple seasons throughout the year.
Long Sleeve Top, Flared Pants, Baseball Hat & Sneakers
If you’re really in a pinch and need a comfy outfit to quickly throw together, go for an athleisure look.
Flared stretch pants are totally back in style, and they feel like a fresh take on classic leggings. Wear a pair of these with some sneakers and a white long sleeve buttoned top, plus a baseball hat (which is ideal when you don’t have time to style your hair or are having a bad hair day). Bonus points if you add some layered necklaces and rings!
This look is simple yet still makes a stylish statement thanks to its street-style vibe.
Sweater Vest, Mini Skirt & Loafers
Of course, pick a skirt with a length you’ll be comfortable in at school, and don’t forget to keep your school’s dress code in mind.
You’ll also be able to wear this look with sneakers for a more casual vibe, and can swap out the skirt for some jeans.
Black Skinny Jeans, Flannel Shirt, Tank Top & Sneakers
These black skinny jeans practically feel like leggings thanks to their soft, stretchy material, but look a bit more polished for class. You’ll be able to style them a ton of different ways, from dressy to casual.
For a laid-back school outfit, wear them with a tank top and an oversized plaid flannel top, along with some white sneakers and our favorite no-show socks. You’ll be comfy while looking cute.
Colorful Cardigan & Cargo Pants
Cargo pants are a major trend right now, and luckily, their loose fit makes them ultra-comfortable to wear, especially when you’re sitting in class. They look great with t-shirts, tanks, and long sleeve tops.
Give your outfit a pop of color with a bright cardigan – this one is hooded and cropped – and add some layered necklaces. Complete the ensemble with your go-to sneakers.

Romper, Denim Jacket & Sneakers
If you’re ready to break out your rompers but it’s not quite hot enough, just throw a denim jacket over top and opt for sneakers instead of sandals. This springtime-ready look features a floral print romper, oversized jean jacket, and casual low-top sneakers like Vans.
This outfit is so versatile, you’ll be able to wear it to anything from brunch to a casual hangout with friends.

Pastel colors and springtime go hand-in-hand. This pastel color-block cardigan has such a spring-y vibe that looks adorable with a denim mini skirt and a necklace.
You can keep this outfit casual with low-top sneakers, or try a pair of trendy loafers.
Colorful Crop Top & Jeans
Jeans are still a staple in the springtime, but now you can start wearing them with cute (and cropped) tops. A brightly colored crop top like this tube top with a retro-inspired print will look amazing with light wash denim that has a loose fit.
Amp up this look’s trend appeal by adding some fun hair clips and a faux fur printed bag, plus sneakers or sandals.
Floral Mini Skirt, Denim Jacket, Tank Top, & Sneakers
If there were ever a season to wear floral prints, it’s the springtime! This adorable tiered floral print mini skirt is so spring, and can be dressed up or down.
For a casual spring look, wear the skirt with a fitted tank or cami top and some sneakers like Converse Chuck Taylor All Stars. Throw on a cropped jean jacket over top for a lightweight layer.
Denim Shorts & A Cardigan
As spring starts turning into summer, you’ll want to start rocking denim shorts. But since it’s not quite hot outside yet, try wearing a cute cardigan over your tank top or t-shirt, along with high-top sneakers and a baseball hat.
This casual spring look is super functional while still being cute. From school to sporting events, this look will always be a go-to.
Summer Outfit Ideas for Teens
Summer is just around the corner, and I don’t know about you, but I can’t wait! There’s so much to look forward to, from days at the beach or pool, to backyard BBQs.
These cute summer outfits for teens are going to be perfect for the summertime and all the fun, carefree days ahead.
Denim Shorts & An Oversized Button-Up Shirt
You can’t go wrong with denim shorts in the summertime. They’re a must! For a cute, casual summer look, pair your jean shorts with an oversized button-up shirt in a light, airy fabric worn over a tank or crop top. This shirt doubles as a beach cover-up, too!
Complete the outfit with flat sandals and your favorite jewelry pieces.
Gingham Mini Dress & Sneakers
Feel the summertime vibes in an adorable gingham mini dress. The orange color of the gingham print and the floral embellishments along the trim make this a perfect piece for the summer, along with its mini length and cami straps. You’ll definitely be able to beat the heat in a mini dress like this!
Style your frock with either sandals or casual sneakers like a pair of Converse Chuck Taylor All Stars. A straw basket bag or woven crossbody bag would look especially cute with this dress.
Graphic T-Shirt, Denim Shorts & Trucker Hat
Jean shorts are going to be your BFF in the summertime. For a trendy look, style them with a graphic print t-shirt and a fun trucker hat, which have made a major comeback recently.
Complete the ensemble with some cool sneakers, a shoulder bag, and retro-inspired aviator sunglasses.
White Jeans & A Colorful Crop Top
White jeans are a summertime staple, especially for summer nights out. Embrace this year’s crochet fashion trend with a crochet crop top featuring bright colors, like this color-blocked option. It includes white along with its more vibrant hues to match the white denim perfectly.
Sneakers always work, but for a summertime-ready look, opt for a pair of sandals.
Denim Shorts & A Crochet Crop Top
Don’t forget to accessorize with some round sunnies and a straw bag for this summery look.
Warm Fall Outfit Ideas for Teens
Nothing is worse than dressing for chilly mornings, but sweating by the time your lunch break rolls around! That’s often how it goes in the early fall, when the daytime temperatures are still warm.
If you’re looking for outfits to wear during the transition from summer to fall, try the following looks.
Pro tip: the key is layering!
Cropped Shacket, Biker Shorts & Sneakers
This cropped fleece shacket is the perfect lightweight jacket to layer over your early fall outfits. It looks super cute worn over black biker shorts and a simple t-shirt – just add some sneakers like a pair of Nike Air Force 1’s.
When it gets warmer later in the day, you can leave this shacket in your locker!
Knit Tank & Cardigan Set with Jeans
Not only are coordinating cardigan sets stylish, but they’re an ideal way to layer on warm fall days.
This knit set features a tank top and matching hooded cardigan with a zipper front for easy on-and-off – wear the full set in the morning, and when you get hot later in the afternoon, ditch the cardigan.
A set like this looks great with jeans, and sneakers or booties.
Corduroy Jacket, Jeans & Combat Boots
Corduroy jackets are totally underrated, especially for the spring and fall seasons. With just the right amount of weight, they’re lightweight while still able to ward off any chill in the air.
Opt for one with an oversized fit that you can wear with mom jeans and a t-shirt for a laid-back look. Add a bit of edge with combat boots and a cool pair of sunglasses.
