I think the majority of people have had round about 3 weeks of school now and if you are in sixth form/college like me, you will know of the privilege that is wearing your own clothes to school – something American children are not at all deprived of! Well let me tell you something, after three weeks, yes, 15 whole days of school, I’ve begun to run out of ideas of what to wear! I understand that school is not a fashion show but sometimes you need a nudge in the right direction for your wardrobe. So today I am going to share with you my top 6 outfit ideas for if you are stuck in an outfit rut, whilst throwing in some of my essentials for school. Let the lookbook begin! basic tee

The Basic Tee

You can’t go wrong with a simple jeans and t-shirt outfit – this is probably my most worn outfit. One way to wear this combo would be with some sneakers and a leather jacket for a more edgy look.

The Plaid Shirt

A must have in the wardrobe every girl – and guy. Any shirt with jeans makes for a great outfit. Dress it up with some chunky heeled shoes or down with some converses. Maybe even tie the shirt around your waist because apparently that’s trendy
