5 Back to School Outfit Ideas for Boys

Here are my favorite outfits for boys this season, these looks are casual, comfortable, and perfect for active pre-k, elementary, and early middle school-aged kids.

Preppy Boys Clothes and Outfits

These boys’ polo and shorts combos are so cute and look great during the early fall and late spring seasons! The boys can keep cool while looking preppy at the same time. If it gets cold, swap the shorts for some nice denim jeans and put on a pullover sweater to keep the look alive.

Amazon also has some nice polos for boys with different colors and patterns to make more preppy looks for boys.

Plaid + Cargos for Boys

Put together plaid tops with cargo bottoms in almost any color, it’s gonna look good! This outfit uses the layering technique that keeps kids warm and comfortable during the cooler months. This blue plaid button-up shirt from Levi’s is a great color and khakis or jeans on the bottom look really good.

Here’s a version of their red plaid long-sleeved shirt.

Colorful Denim Boys Outfits

How adorable are these guys?! I just love the idea of mixing denim with colored tees, shoes, and accessories. Whether they are wearing denim pants or a jean jacket, you can spice up your boys’ outfit with some color!

I like the look of layering colorful t-shirts underneath, a great addition to the denim jacket and/or jeans look. I also think that the shoes set these outfits off! This look is one of my favorite outfit ideas for boys.

Active Hoodie Sets for Boys

Boys always love comfort, so why not grab some activewear for them for back to school? Old Navy has some great hoodies, crew neck sweatshirts, and sweatpants that you can mix and match for both comfort and style. When the weather cools off outside, this is one of our go-to boys clothes for school.

Casual jeans and sneakers for boys

I love this outfit idea using comfy casual jeans and sneakers. My guy looks super good in his casual clothes, light long-sleeved tee, and he brings a hoodie or jacket to keep warm as needed throughout the day.

This is a great outfit choice as it looks good together, plus, these pieces can be mixed and matched with other clothing that is already in the closet! The long-sleeved t-shirt and light denim jeans are made by OshKosh, and the gray sneakers are Vans.

Journey’s also has a bunch of nice sneakers and school shoes for boys that are affordable, too. They carry Converse, Vans, New Balance, and more top brands.
