Back-To-School Outfit Ideas

Back-to-school styles for kids

Back-to-school outfits for boys

For back-to-school outfits for boys, we suggest checking out some of Nike’s trending styles. Try the Nike HBR Shirt & French Terry Cargo Shorts Set in either white and grey, or opt for a fiery red and black set. For shoes, try some Nike Huaraches for a solid outfit from top to bottom that your child can feel confident in all day long.

Back-to-school outfits for girls

We also have a lot of trendy and comfortable back-to-school styles for girls available. Do you have an athlete in the family? Give her that extra flair she needs with the Jordan Jersey Dress. Does she feel more comfortable in pants than skirts? Then pair the dress with the Jordan Bike Shorts and adidas Originals sneakers to nail a sporty chic vibe.

Another stylish first-day outfit idea includes the Nike Retro Rewind Shirt paired with the Nike Econ Clash Dri-FIT Leggings and finished off well with a pair of Nike Air Max 90s.

Back-to-school outfits for teen boys

When considering back-to-school outfit ideas for teen boys, ask yourself: Does he prefer long pants or shorts? What about tank tops versus hoodies or t-shirts? Whatever they prefer, we have the perfect back-to-school outfit ideas for them. For instance, you can try the Jordan Dri-FIT Tank, paired with the Nike Kyrie Cargo Pants and the Jumpman Heritage86 Cap. Or if they’re not a fan of the tank top look, switch it out for the adidas Lin T-shirt and pair it with the adidas Adiedge shorts instead.

For back-to-school outfit ideas for teen girls, try going casual but trendy with the Nike Sportswear Essential T-shirt paired with the Essential French Terry Shorts in the color that makes them glow.
