There are quite a variety of shorts ladies can wear to school but the most popular and favored shorts are the denim shorts as they are easy to style with no or less styling skills.

Tanks or t-shirts will be the best tops to wear with your denim shorts as they will make the apparel look more attractive and stylish. If you are to choose a sleeveless tank, opt for one which won’t expose your undergarments such as your bra and other related garments. Spaghetti straps are not allowed thus they shouldn’t be worn to school. Remember the length of your denim short must pass your fingers tips when your arms are at your sides.

Wear Ordinary shorts to school
Styling ordinary shorts to school might be a little tricky than what you might think. It’s very easy to clash the attire when styling ordinary shorts than when styling denim shorts.
The color of the short and the top you are going to wear should be put into consideration as they must match to avoid color clash. Black and white will be a perfect match and a good combination. You can wear a black or blue pair of ordinary shorts with a white or grey top. The top can be a t-shirt, blouse or tank whichever you feel comfortable wearing on that day.
You can wear Heels, pumps, flats or thongs whichever gets you ready for school and you will be good to go with your backpack at your back or shoulders. Remember makeup and accessories the attire to make it look chic and attractive.
WEAR SKIRTS TO SCHOOL
Trendy attire which you can wear to school is a skirt. Skirts look great on ladies with nice things and legs. If you want to show some legs or thighs, skirts will be the best option to opt for. You can wear your favorite skirt with a matching top to rock a chic, sexy and trendy outfit to school. In this case, we will consider two most recommended types of skirts which you can wear to school. You can wear maxi skirt or knee length skirts.
Wear Knee length skirts to school
Well if you are to wear a short skirt, knee length would be the most recommended size. You can wear a skirt which is slightly above your knees, slightly below your knee or just at the knees. Too short skirts might expose your “goods” or cause your “good” to peep through underneath which won’t look cool before other people so mind the length of the skirt.
You can choose a pencil skirt, pleated skirts or whichever type of skirt you are comfortable in and pair it with a nice top preferable a polka dot, stripped top or floral tops as they will make the getup look chic, sexy and adorable. To look smart, tuck-in the top and wear high heel as they will add some height to your getup making you look more stylish and adorable.
You can wear dark sunnies, a short cute necklace and a few armlets to make the getup look more feminine. Finish the attire with a matching medium size handbag and you will be good to go.
Wear Maxi skirts to school
If you don’t know how to wear and style Maxi skirts, you won’t know the beauty of wearing maxi skirts to school or any event. Quite frankly, maxi skirts are trendy and stylish, what matters is how you wear and style them up to avoid looking outdated. There are many factors to consider when wearing a maxi skirt which I fully described in the previous article about what to wear with long or maxi skirts checkout the link for details.
But in brief, choose a nice color of your maxi skirt and pair it with a matching top. Stripped tops, floral tops and polka dot tops will all look great with matching maxi skirts. Since this is more of a comfortable casual outfit, tuck-in the top to look neat and belt the skirt to show off your waistline. Flats will be the most comfortable footwear to pair with this attire as they will make your feet comfortable throughout the day.
Accessorize with a cute necklace, earrings, armlets and a nice ladies watch. Finish the getup with a simple trendy shoulder bag which matches and complements the whole attire. Personally I like wearing maxi skirts and I used to wear them to school in the 1980’s. My favorite attire was a black maxi skirt paired with a polka dot blouse. What’s your favorite outfit with maxi skirts?
WEAR DRESSES TO SCHOOL
Some other attire ladies can wear to school is with dresses. Ladies look pretty, cute and sexy when they wear dresses which flatters their body shapes. All you need is to choose a dress which fits you perfectly and that you are sure will complement your body shape. The length and color of the dress should also be put into consideration. Dull colors and neutral colors such as white, black, cream or blue dresses look romantic and will look great on almost every lady irrespective of the tone of your skin. However, personally I like wearing polka dot and floral dresses coz they look great on me and complement the tone of my skin.
Wear Knee length Dresses back to school
School is a social environment where your dress code maters. I would recommend wearing knee length dresses which are either slightly above the knee or slightly below the knees. Short dresses might expose your undergarments and “goods” making other students and teachers uncomfortable. Choose a color and size which you’re sure will flatter your body size and shape for perfect, cute and sexy apparel. You can dress it up with high heels, flats or booties depending on the look and style you want to create. Wear a few accessories and finish off with a matching backpack or handbag and you will be good to go to school to rock a trendy outfit at school in your favorite dress.
Wear Maxi Dresses back to school
I used to think that maxi dresses are dressed for specific occasions such as prom, homecoming or any special occasion you might think of. It’s just of recent that I released that even girls can wear them to school and look great in them. The styling is the same what differs is the makeup and accessories you apply to your attire when going to school. Makeup should be minimal and in neutral colors and the accessories should as well be minimal and of dull or neutral colors. Open toe, peep toe heels will be the best footwear to pair with this attire to school. Just get your handbag and you will be good to go.
SHOES TO WEAR TO SCHOOL
