Back-to-School with Trendy, Affordable Styles from JCPenney

Posted on 2 m read

***Special thanks to JCPenney for sponsoring this post! All opinions are my own.***

The new academic year is just right around the corner, which means it’s time to do some back-to-school shopping! Going to school in style was always important to me. Luckily for my parents, they didn’t have to spend a fortune on my wardrobe. I remember I would have so much fun shopping with my mom this time of year to build a fresh wardrobe for the new year consisting of tops, sweaters, jeans, accessories, and shoes. We could always count on JCPenney to have a plethora of designs to ensure all students look and feel their best in and out of the classroom!



JCPenney offers a variety of trusted brands in-store and online, including Arizona, City Streets, Total Girl, Xersion, Okie Dokie, and Izod uniforms. Regardless of your fashion tastes, you’ll be sure to find trendy pieces that won’t break the bank. Good news for the modern American mom is that, JCPenney also carries wonderful styles for adults too. In a nutshell, JCPenney is a one-stop destination to find styles your entire family will love.


One of my favorite back-to-school trends of 2017 is ruffles and destructed denim with white sneakers. I am a big fan of JCPenney’s Arizona line, which carries a wide range of clothing options. I was even able to put together a fun back-to-school outfit pairing one of their distressed jeans with a pretty ruffle top.


Flowy feminine tops have always had a soft spot in my heart. The flutter sleeves on this Arizona topΒ ($34) are a perfect way to add elegance to an everyday look. As far as bottoms go, I absolutely love how these skinny jeansΒ ($54) fit. They are the perfect length on me and I am obsessed with the raw edges and destructed detail on them! The broken-in look adds a cool ruggedness, making it a back-to-school classic. It goes wonderfully with white ConverseΒ ($50), which never goes out of style!



Right now, JCPenney is offering an incredible deal of Buy 1 Get 1 for a Penny on select styles. With such a great variety of top trends at great price points, it’s the perfect place and time to shop for everyday staples and back-to-school favorites.

Have you shopped at JCPenney before? What kind of back-to-school finds did you score?

    I somehow wanna go back to school when I’m seeing these pics and reading about looking good with basically no budget (well, at least an affordable one) and JC Penney truly has great stuff for both boys and girls and the two of us should probably enroll for a class just to be able to hang out in cool clothing on campus, haha. πŸ™‚

    I always found it amusing that the US has no school uniforms! In Australia there is probably less than 1% of schools without a mandatory school uniform, and the ones that do usually have quite strict uniform regulations. It must be so freeing to express your style, and personality in your own clothes – especially that flowing top!

    I really like this outfit you put together from the JCPenney Arizona line, it truly reflects what I have in my memory of what Arizona is like. And denim is always a staple for school, I pretty much wore it every day as a student πŸ™‚ Fabulous post!
