The schoolgirl look has been glorified on the F/W runways, particularly the runways of fashion houses like Chanel and Valentino.

Dresses with contrasting white collars exude a collegiate vibe that charms our socks off. Finally, we can indulge in our back-to-school fashion fantasies.

The schoolgirl look has also been widely embraced by the fashion-loving public, with many of them injecting their own personalities into the styling of their collared dresses. Let’s take a look at some bloggers and learn some tips on how to wear this must-have F/W item.

1. Midi Collared Dress and Trench Coat

Wear your midi collared dress with a trench coat. We like how Manona, whose blog Manonache is no longer available online, chose a red trench coat to pair with her polka-dot dress.

It never hurts to integrate more colors into your wardrobe. Fend off the cold with tights, and punctuate your look with high-heeled pumps.

2. Plaid Collared Dress and Thigh-High Socks

Virgit from Preppy Fashionist looked every inch the school girl in this outfit. She wore her plaid collared dress with a coat that is the same length as her dress.

If you have the same pieces, kick it up a notch with a pair of thigh-high socks and lace-up booties.

3. Collared Dress and Jacket

This look pretty much has the same elements as Virgit’s but has a different vibe because Darya opted for a jacket.

4. Schoolgirl With Big Eyeglasses

Take your preppy schoolgirl styling seriously and wear big eyeglasses! We are particularly fond of Kendall’s transparent glasses. Her blog, Kendallca, is unfortunately no longer available online.

5. Lace-Up Shoes and Tights

Wear it with a pair of tights, your favorite lace-up shoes, and a hat. Megan’s styling may be simple, but it definitely works.

Just throw in a coat when needed, and you are good to go! Her blog, The Briar Rose, is unfortunately no longer available online.

6. Wide-Brimmed Hat and Buckled Booties

Look like a rebel chic by wearing a few grunge pieces with your collared dress. Visa from 1 Fine Dai wore it with a pair of buckled booties, a pair of round sunnies, and a wide-brimmed hat.
