Also keeping it comfy, this flowy T-shirt dress also makes the perfect canvas for self-expression. Top it off with a Heritage86 cap from Nike and they're ready to strut into school, oozing style and individuality.

In high school, expressing your style can become your personal statement. Options like this Jordan Air Stretch T-shirt or Jordan Dri-FIT Diamond Shorts offer versatility — going from sporty to chic as fast as you can sprint to class. Pair them with some Nike AF1s, and you’ve got a look that’s stylish and always on-trend. 

And don’t forget to bag the Hoodrich OG Tactical Backpack either. As you traverse the domain of detentions and diplomas, you’re gonna want a pack you can rely on.

University. The transition to adulthood where style flourishes and reps who you are — or who you want to be. When stepping out on campus, elevated essentials like these Pink Soda Sport Rox Cargo Shorts or oversized zip hoodies strike a balance between relaxed and refined. 

And for the kicks to go with it, classics like a Nike Blazer Mid '77 are always solid. Delivering retro style and modern comfort for your day-to-day. Add a final statement with a Goorin trucker hat, and you’re all set for those sunny study sessions or getting a bite after class.

When it comes to back to school shopping, JD has options. And when you’re wanting new looks for heading back to class, you know where to shop. But what if your school calls for a dress code? No sweat, we’ve got some things for that.

Accessories and triple black sneakers can have that cool edge while passing the uniform test. A crisp backpack for your books, a cap for sunnier days, and a pack of Crep Protect Wipes to keep your sneakers fresh couldn’t hurt either. You’ll be ready for whatever the school year throws at you without breaking a sweat.
