Back-to- School with Kohl's: Plaid Shirtdress and Ankle Boots

Get back to school outfit ideas from Kohl's.

If there's one good thing about the end of summer, it's the chance to shop for new clothes like back-to-school fashions. Growing up, that always meant a trip to Kohl's, and while my back-to-school days are behind me, I was excited to team up to share some outfit ideas for those all-important first days back in class!

For fall, I always go back to plaid and stock up on comfy shirts, but a plaid shirtdress is just as versatile and easy to wear. Here I paired a So Plaid Shirtdress with So ankle boots for an effortless look you can wear now when the weather is still warm and well into the winter months with tights or leggings. I'm wearing a size medium in the dress, and the ankle boots are true to size. Both are soooo comfortable. The dress is super soft and lightweight which makes it great for layering (but it's not sheer, so you can wear it alone, too).

I kept things simple for this look, but I could totally see this plaid dress styled with a faux fur vest and tall boots. I may have pinned a look like this that I can't wait to try copying. Another outfit I've pinned and plan on wearing: Plaid shirtdress + leather jacket + white sneakers. #ohyes #endlesspossibilities

And can we talk about this backpack for a sec? The faux leather looks so luxe and the rich red color is so pretty for fall. I also couldn't resist adding a floppy wool hat to add a feminine's also just a great accessory to have when you're running late and don't have time to style your hair. Whether you're heading back-to-school or not, these are fall must-haves you'll reach for over and over again.

Head to to shop my exact look and visit the Kohl’s Juniors Apparel Page for more great pieces. Stay tuned, I'll be sharing two more back-to-school outfit ideas soon!
