Statement Shorts for Back-to-School

With most colleges and high schools having started or just about to start, I thought it would be perfect time to talk about some back to school fashion. Many people tend to stress out about new clothes with the upcoming school year and put a lot of pressure on what their going to wear the first day of school. Don’t worry, it’s a lot simpler than you might think.


With the continuing 90s trend that has taken over both men’s and women’s design the last few years, you can’t go wrong with a pair of statement shorts. Now most people are used to seeing statement necklaces or a bold shirt on the first day of class, but don’t be afraid to put the emphasis on your lower half.

Although in the 90s you might see a more vibrant take on these shorts, move them into the current times and go for a more muted color palette that will be more versatile in your wardrobe. Sticking to the less flashy colors allows you to focus on the standout pattern. With shorts like these, everyone will be stopping you in the hallway on the way to class to ask where you got them.


Because of the black and white patter on my shorts, they can be styled with a lot of different pieces. I chose to pair them with a vintage Sturgis Motorcycle Rally t shirt and my trusty combo of tube socks and black Converse high tops. Finish the look off with a pair of sunglasses and some simple jewelry and you’re all set. Alternatively, if you wanted to keep with the 90s vibes, trying wearing your statement shorts with a vintage sportswear brand tee (Tommy Hilfiger, FILA, etc) and a fanny pack or cross body bag (check mine out here).


So go crazy! Try out different patterns and colors or keep it simple if that’s your style. Either way, rocking a pair of statement shorts this back to school season will not only keep you on trend, but also help you stand out from the crowd.
