7 School Drop-Off Outfits That Look Put Together

Back-to-school is a happy time for moms, especially these days? The only downside is you may actually be seen in public. Don’t worry, we’ve got seven easy school drop off looks that’ll make you look put together. You may even hope you run into friends.

1. Flannel Shirt & Boots
Send off in a plaid button-down tucked into dark-wash skinny jeans. Add suede booties and you’ll actually be glad when you run into someone.

2. Moto Jacket
To turn up your edge try a leather moto jacket with a studded dome tote and animal print flats and no one will ever know you drive a mini-van.

3. Striped Top & Black Jeans
This preppy look will have everyone wondering who’s more excited for the first day of class. Go for the classic combo of the striped shirt, black jeans and a colorful tote to ease the transition.

4. Dress & Cardigan Sweater
A rayon dress under a cardigan, bright over-sized satchel, and platform sandals are perfect for drop-off but polished enough for that meeting you’re off to!

5. Athleisure
A cotton zipped jacket over patterned leggings is great when you’re running late.

6. T-Shirt Dress & Jacket
Keep it relaxed with a military jacket over a cotton tee dress and high top sneakers.  Finish the look with a leather backpack and you might be mistaken for a student. Maybe.

7. Poncho & Leggings
A poncho is as cozy as the blanket you wish you were still wrapped in but pair it with leggings and round-toe ballet slippers and you’ll be doing pirouettes all the way home.

Alright, the kids are at school…it’s time to celebrate. You might need a coffee or two.
