It’s that time of year again, school is back in session. When getting dressed, it can be hard to abide by the rules of dress code. You don’t want to wear something and risk getting caught and told to change. I don’t know how other schools work, but my high school had really ugly sweat pants and huge t-shirts we had to change into if we got dress coded. Luckily, I had an extra pair of shorts in my locker just in case my shorts were ever too short (and sometimes they were). In this post, you’ll find four outfits that are perfect for staying in dress code.
A Cardigan Over a Tank
Generally, spaghetti strap tank tops are out of dress code. An easy way to get around this is to put a cardigan over your tank top. You’ll have sleeves, and look cute at the same time. There’s so many different cardigans out there from solids to patterns like stripes and florals. I love this floral cardigan from Francesca’s paired with a white tank and jeans from Belk and brown booties from Charlotte Russe. I’ve also linked a few of my top picks for cardigans down below.
Long Sleeve Dress
Dresses are an easy way to look stylish effortlessly. By wearing a dress with long sleeves, you’ll look cute and still be in dress code. The only downside is that it still might be a little to warm to sport this look, (I know in Florida it is) but it’s perfect for the cooler months. I love this aztec print dress from Forever 21, it goes great with my brown booties from Charlotte Russe shown in the previous pictures. Below my pictures, are some links to my favorite long sleeve dresses.
A Sweater and a Button Down Skirt
I love this next look because it’s super cozy. Try pairing a sweater with a button down skirt for a cute fall look, like this striped sweater with this denim button down skirt from T.J. Max. This look would also look great with tights or over the knee boots, making it a perfect fall outfit for when the weather gets cooler. I’ve linked some of my favorite sweaters and button down skirts below.
Jumpsuit With a T-Shirt Underneath
Like in the first look, spaghetti straps usually don’t comply with dress codes. Besides a cardigan, another way to get around this is to wear a t-shirt underneath your spaghetti strapped garment, like I did with this jumpsuit from Target. Putting a t-shirt under garments like jumpsuits and slip dresses is not only stylish, but you will be within the rules of dress code as well. Below my pictures are some links to my fave jumpsuits and tees for you to check out.
