    Hey Bellas! As hard as it is to believe, it's already time to start back-to-school shopping! Now is a great time to stock up on classic pieces and even try out some new trends. The best part about shopping boutique is being able to find unique, high-quality pieces that you won't see on everyone else. We've put together this guide to make it easier to find all of the different clothing pieces you're going to need this school year, and we've included some of our favorites to help get you started!


    Tees, Please!

    First things first, a girl can never have too many t-shirts! Whether you prefer solid colors, stripes, or graphic tees, there's countless ways to style a comfy t-shirt. Plus, there's no better way to show off your personality than with a graphic tee with your favorite quote, band, or brand on it! One of our favorite trends this season is layering graphic t-shirts under slip dresses. We're also loving the colorblock trend, and our Around the Block White Tee perfectly captures the look! Be sure to check out all of our tees, and for even more selection, view all tops.

    Smarty Pants

    A nice-fitting pair of pants is an absolute must-have in every girl's wardrobe. Now is the perfect time to invest in a pair of pants that will last throughout the school year and have you feeling confident every time you wear them. Here at Bella Ella, we have lots of different styles to choose from! Whether you prefer distressed denim, plaid trousers, or palazzo pants, we've got you covered. Our leopard print jeans are perfect for creating a trendy back-to-school outfit! Simply pair them with a black graphic tee and black mules for a cool girl look.

    Dress to Impress

    Dresses are the best way to elevate your everyday style. Plus, they're so comfortable and easy to wear! With so many different styles to choose from, we recommend checking out all of our dresses to find your favorite! We think that a simple t-shirt dress is an essential. Just throw it on and you're out the door! For a classier look, try choosing a fancier silhouette or a longer length. There's nothing wrong with dressing up for school, in fact, it might help you feel more prepared and professional! We think our Gal Pal dress would look super cute with a simple t-shirt or turtleneck underneath. Don't be afraid to experiment with layering this season, you might just start the next big trend!

    Lookin' Good in a Hood

    Is there anything comfier than a hoodie?! We don't think so! While you're shopping for new pieces to add to your collection, we recommend picking a fun, colorful hoodie. You'll be surprised just how much you wear it, especially on lazy school days! Our Growing Up hoodies have been super popular because of their cute floral embroidery. If you prefer a more basic look, we suggest our Lover Not a Fighter Purple Hoodie! On those days that you feel like you have nothing to wear, simply pair your favorite hoodie with skinny jeans and sneakers for a cute and casual look!


    Rad in Plaid

    When thinking about back-to-school fashion, the first pattern that comes to mind is plaid, and so we're thrilled that it's such a hot trend this season! Nothing can compare to the cute and classic look of a plaid piece, and with so many unique options to choose from, plaid is a must-have in every girl's wardrobe! Gingham has been making a comeback, and we expect to see even more gingham throughout the fall and winter season. Our favorite plaid piece is our new Back to School Blue Plaid Mini Dress. Isn't the name just perfect?! If you want an even trendier look, we recommend a two-piece set like our Totally Clueless Gray Plaid Two-Piece set.

    Wild Style

    Animal print has been wildly popular lately, and the forecast says that this trend will just get hotter and hotter throughout the upcoming school year! Our Wild Style collection is our best collection yet! While leopard print is the most well-known (and loved) animal print, we can't get enough of the snake print trend that's been rising in popularity! There's no better way to add attitude to an outfit than with a bold animal print statement piece. Here at Bella Ella, we have lots of different animal print pieces to choose from, including tops, pants, kimonos, jumpsuits, shorts, dresses, and more!

    Over the Rainbow

    Express yourself this school year with vibrant colors! Our rainbow collection is a a stylist favorite, and we couldn't be happier that vivid, colorful pieces are in style this season! There's something so fun about wearing the rainbow, and what better time than the beginning of a new school year to show off your true colors? One of the most popular rainbow styles is the rainbow striped pattern. We're obsessed with our Rainbow Road shirt that's white with a simple rainbow striped pattern. If you're looking for an even bolder look, we recommend our Fun & Games striped tank! The scalloped accents, tie-front detail, and colorful striped pattern work together to make this tank such a fantastic piece!

    We hope this guide gave you some inspiration and got you excited to go back-to-school shopping! We're super excited to announce our Back to School collection, where we have curated our favorite pieces for the upcoming school year.
