School Style: Dress to Express Yourself

School Style: Dress to Express Yourself

If you’re anything like us (and we have a feeling you are), dressing for school is all about looking and feeling the best every day. While the shoes are the star of the outfit (obvi!), they are also the base of personal style, building from the ground up. So let your kids shine this school year and show off their personal style. Here are a few original thought-starters to get the creative juices flowing.


Even the youngest students can dress to express themselves starting with a new pair of sneakers. The adidas Baseline is a classic look that been around for years but gets a bold update for this year with rose gold metallic accents. It makes a great basic that will allow her to accessorize as she pleases.

The Skechers Swipe Energy Lights 2.0 is another crowd-pleaser that boasts LED lights along the sole that light up in multiple sequences for 11 different options to suit his style. He’ll really light up the room in a whole new way in these sneakers!


Converse has always been known for self-expression and it doesn’t get more iconic than the Chuck Taylor All Star high-tops. For the middle-schooler bursting with budding self-expression, we love this black and white staple that can be dressed in so many ways. Try it laced halfway up with cuffed jeans and tall socks!



The Vans checkerboard print is hotter than ever right now! After gaining popularity in the 80’s, this iconic look has experienced a recent resurgence. Perfect for the high school aged student, the tried-and-true black and white Asher slip-on is a great basic to build any outfit upon. And if you’re looking for an update for this school year, the checkerboard Vans Ward (in blush!) is an eye-catching new style on the scene.


Cool. Classic. Confident. Converse is a true original and so is your style. The Converse Chuck Taylor All Star low is a sneaker that can be dressed in so many ways it’s ideal for any on-campus activity. Try it with everything from jeans and joggers to skirts and dresses. Just remember to make it original.
