What 11 People Are Wearing on the First Day of School

What you wear on the first day of school can set the tone for the whole year. Whether you’re a first-time student or a teacher who’s been in the business for decades, chances are you’re probably going to give at least some thought to what you’ll be wearing when you enter (or reenter) the hallowed halls of learning. We asked a bunch of people living in New York City about their own outfits and what they’re looking forward to in the coming year. —Alanna Okun, senior editor; photos by Cole Wilson

Prince George

Name: Christian Pabon

Age: Turning 4 in September

Where he’s headed: His first year of pre-K in Bed-Stuy, Brooklyn. “I’m a little nervous about my new school!” he said.

What he’s wearing: Gap jeans (“They ripped because of all his running around,” said his mom, Mikaela), a hand-me-down T-shirt, and Stan Smith sneakers from DSW. According to Mikaela, Christian likes to pick out his own shoes. According to Christian, “THESE ARE MY FLYING SHOES!” He proceeded to jump up and down.

Name: Emma Schaeffer

Age: 27

Where she’s headed: Back to a school in Harlem, Manhattan, for her fourth year of teaching. Emma said that her students “have what would be classified as mild to moderate special needs, as opposed to severe. So we have a lot of kids with learning disabilities, a lot of kids with behavioral disorders. Many with both of those things. Some of them fall on the spectrum. Our classes are really small — the younger kids are in classes of six — and there are two adults, a teacher and a TA, in every class.”

What she’s wearing: “My school is super casual, but I try not to take advantage of it too much. I still want to have a difference between how I’m dressing and how the kids are dressing. I feel like my goal is usually, ‘Can I feel like I’m wearing pajamas but look like I’m wearing professional clothing?’

I think this shirt is from the Gap, and the overalls are from Aritzia. The shoes are Eileen Fisher, but via Poshmark; being a teacher, your budget’s always going to be limited. And then various jewelry that I never take off. It’s good for distracting kids who are upset; I’ll be like, ‘Do you want hear the story of my rings?’

I have one student who I adore, who is not in my class anymore but she was, and she would constantly make observations about me out loud, and sometimes she’d go, ‘Oops, I didn’t mean to say that out loud.’ I’ve also had ones be like, ‘Just so you know, you can see your bra a little bit!’”

Names: Nadia Le Fleming (L) and Violet Le Noury Stewart (R)

Ages: Both girls are 7.

Where they’re headed: Both of the friends (and neighbors!) are going into second grade at different schools in Fort Greene, Brooklyn.

What they’re wearing: Nadia has to wear a uniform, but it’s pretty flexible: a bunch of T-shirts with the name of her school. And luckily her mom, Darcy, is really creative. Said Nadia, “We had so many plain shirts, and my mom wanted to make a cool one. And we had all this fabric, so she made a dress out of it! I know how to use a sewing machine, too.” Her sandals are from Payless, although Darcy said that she’ll have to wear different shoes to school, since it’s required that they be closed-toe.

Nadia is looking forward to seeing her friends and teachers, but “there’s something I’m not looking forward to: kids fighting at recess. Sometimes people take balls from each other and play too rough.”

Violet’s dress is from J.Crew, and her sandals are Saltwaters. Her mom, Leela, said that the dress is special because Violet visits Leela’s home island of Guernsey every summer and has always envied the gingham dresses the girls there wear. (“But hers is funkier!” said Leela.) Violet was still sporting temporary glitter tattoos from her last trip to Guernsey. And Violet isn’t just excited about her own outfit; she sewed clothes for her two stuffed cats, Peppermint and Biscuit, as well.

“I made their outfits!” she said. “From a flower dress and the silk under the flower dress. Sometimes they come with me [to school], and sometimes they don’t.”

Name: Anneliese Cooper

Age: 25

Where she’s headed: Her first year in the nonfiction MFA program at the New School.

What she’s wearing: “I bought the skirt at Marshalls — it’s Cynthia Rowley. The most important thing about it is that it has pockets.

And this is one of my power shirts. I’ve had it since high school. This album is called 'Raw Power,' and the band is The Stooges. I have a couple shirts that are like this; they’re all band T-shirts, and you feel the energy of the band with you.

I found these shoes outside of my friend’s apartment in 2012. They’re just now starting to fall apart. I’m going to wear them until they crumble.

Then, last but not least, the bra is from this great company, JBC Lingerie. They’re handmade in Australia. My friend bought one but it was the wrong size, so I bought it from her.

I was prepared to go to school not wearing it. But I’m coming into myself as a person a little bit more intentionally. For a very long time I was like, ‘I don’t have the kind of body that people tell me I’m allowed to dress.’ I used to dress in a very armored and super closed-off kind of way. And there’s something about wearing a super cute, fun bra! I’m claiming a little bit of this pretty, sexy kind of thing. Also, the bra allows me to keep the shirt off-the-shoulder enough that it sort of emerges from the waistband of the skirt.”

Deal of the Day

The Nordstrom Summer Sale should really be called the Nordstrom Everything You Need and Probably Want for Fall Sale, if we’re being honest. Sure, there’s a bunch of warm-weather picks — it’s Nordstrom, there’s a bunch of everything — but a lot of what’s up to 40% off through midnight tonight will fit for fall. In the need pile: rain boots for under $40 and a new leather or faux-leather tote (save on this style, splurge on Madewell and Allsaints versions); and in the want pile: a black velvet jumpsuit for under $100, a sunny yellow bell-sleeved Topshop blouse for $35, and these slinky OTK boots.
