School is back in session across the country. Walking across campus, you’ll find that there are several fashion trends that are taking over classrooms this year. Here are some of the popular trends for 2017:


The trending material for fall 2017 is denim. Be on the lookout for denim skirts, denim jumpers, denim overalls, and denim jackets. Try pairing a denim dress with a flannel shirt for the perfect fall look. And don’t be afraid to mix and match your denims or check out patchwork denim items for a trendy outfit this school year.


When looking for current trends, you’ll want to take notes from past trends, too. The 1960s and 1970s to be exact. For example, look for shirts with bell sleeves. You may even see bell bottoms making a comeback this year.

From the ‘70s, you’ll see sequins on trend at schools. It doesn’t have to be a night out on the town to wear your favorite shiny ensemble. 


Boho-chic has been a popular style in recent years. This year, you can expect to see the bohemian look continue. This is especially true when it comes to items made of suede. Pick up a suede skirt or a suede moto jacket to create your own boho vibe.

Graphic Tees

Get out your favorite graphic tees as you head back to school. You can dress these shirts up with your favorite skirt, or go for a casual look with a pair of jeans.

You’ll find a wide range of graphic tees for sale. From your favorite band to clever STEM images, there are lots of designs to choose from. 

Mismatched Prints

No longer do you need to worry about choosing matching clothing to complete your ensemble. Be bold! Look for fun mismatched items to put together. Try a polka dot skirt with a floral top. Wear a striped shirt with animal print bottoms. Don’t be afraid to mix and match prints to create fun and interesting outfits.


Embroidery is elaborate needlework. This type of embellishment creates ornamental designs to dress up an item of clothing. This year, you’ll see more skirts, shirts, jeans, and accessories with embroidered designs. These designs can be the perfect addition to class up your clothing or make a statement. 


Sure, you can stick to your basic white t-shirt. In fact, this look is trending this year. However, your color choices can be as bold as you want them to be, especially because neon colors are popular this year.

Another popular option is the monochromatic look. You don’t have to wear the same shade from head to toe, but you could wear different shades of the same color.

When it comes to shopping for your back-to-school look, it’s important to find clothing that will make you feel your best. You want to feel confident. You want to feel beautiful.
