Back to School Fashion Trends
August 8, 2019
Don’t get us wrong: We love some education. But perhaps one of the most fun things about going back to school is the fashion that goes with it. Whether your style is of-the-minute #Instachic, or as classy as a No. 2 pencil, it’s never too early to start planning that all-important first-day-back outfit. Retailers in Southlake Town Square are ready to help you ace that new look for a new year.
Gotta Have the Denim
Denim is in for fall. And this year, we’re seeing fresh takes on everyone’s favorite material with flattering flares and boot-cuts making a big comeback.
Summer’s wide-legged crop trend is not going anywhere. Simply swap your sandals for sneakers or cute booties and you’ll be all set! Dare to be different in denim-on-denim looks and dudes will rule the hallways in more slim-cut, tapered jeans.

Sneaking into the Classroom
This year, fall is all about fresh kicks. Whether you sport the all-white look, or some trademark pizzazz from your favorite, wizardly books, Vans and Tylers have the looks you need that will go with any outfit for fall, whether it’s jeans, pants, dresses or skirts. Or snag some sneakers with funky patterns to take any outfit from blah to yeah!

Girly with an Edge
If there is one thing that the ‘90s trends have brought back to us, it’s looks that are sweet – but not too sweet. This edgy girly style is all about pairing cute dresses with sneakers or boots, florals with sporty looks, and more. Take your summer dresses and rompers and throw them over a cool, retro shirt for a fun, fall frock.
