I come up with a few outfit ideas that you could possibly wear to sixth form or college, the outfits vary from smarter outfits to outfits that could be worn to schools with a more relaxed dress code. The outfits are just ideas and are examples of what I would wear so you can just use them for inspiration and edit them to accomodate your own style. Enjoy.

For this outfit I have used one of my favourite dresses from Urban Outfitters. I love it because of the floral pattern and flattering fit. You can pare it with a cardigan for a more casual look or a blazer for a smarter look; you can change this up depending on how formal your dress code is. I have pared 15 denier tights with thigh highs as I really like the layered look this creates. I added my bowler hat as I think a hat can always change up a look. And finally I pared the whole look off with flat chelsea boots and a pinky lip.
I would call this the boyfriend look as the outfit is very 'raided dad's closet' esque. I do really love this blazer though, it adds some smartness and also colour to a very monocrome base. It's very oversized though, so I rolled the sleeves up. I pared it with my disco pants as the sheen to them not only adds smartness, but adds interest as the I have mixed up textures in this look. On my top I wore a simple white blouse I thrifted from a charity shop. I topped the outfit off with my dr marten shoes (adding to the boyfriend look) and a bright pink lip (to take away some of the masculinity!)
This is one of my favourite looks. I have pared my (very christmasy!) cardigan over the top of a very simple yet effective look. I layered a black dress over the top of a white collared blouse. The collar gives the smart look for sixth-form/college and also gives the dress a whole different look than if it was worn alone. The cardigan adds colour and warmth and to finish the look i wore my cherry doc marten loafers and a red lip to match!
If your school/college is slightly more lenient on the dress code you could pair a denim jacket with your outfit like I have done here. Denim jackets are classic and statement pieces, they also do look smart when worn with the right things such as smart trousers, dresses and blouses. I have worn mine over a cream blouse and a floral skirt. I have also added a jumper underneath for warmth and also to create that layered look that always looks good. A light pink lip and my Dr martens complete the look.
This is also an outfit that could be worn to a school with a more relaxed dress code. I teamed acid wash esque leggings which are quite casual with a polka dot collared top which still keeps an element of formality to the outfit. I then added my army jacket over the top of the outfit to keep in with the more casual feel of this outfit. For shoes I just wore my black dm's again and had a light pink lip to complete the look.
