It’s hard to believe that we’re nearing the end of July! Summer vacation is coming to an end, and back to school season will soon be upon us. Now is a great time to shop for back to school clothing, especially back to school dresses for teens as you can save a bundle! The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale early access kicked off last week for cardholders, and it officially kicks off tomorrow (Friday, July 20, 2018) for everyone. There are so many great dresses at deeply discounted prices, it’s unbelievable!

When the sale kicked off last week I featured a few of the best shoes, fall fashion finds, jackets and sweaters, but hadn’t had a chance to feature a few of the trendy dresses the sale has to offer. I figured today would be a great day to do so, especially since many of you are shopping for back to school. These dresses are great for the high school or college student, they are also a must for women of all ages! Some of the dresses aren’t part of the sale, but they’re at such great prices, you would think they are on sale!

Without further adieu, here are a few trendy casual back to school dresses for teens, high school, and college students! Don’t forget, these are dresses that we can ALL wear regardless of age.

PS: Be sure to check out my Nordstrom Anniversary Sale section for more trendy fashion must haves at deeply discounted prices! I also shared the best in beauty, home decor, and everything fashion related in my Shop!

Tie Waist Dresses For Back to School!

It’s no secret, tie waist dresses and tie front dresses are definitely having a moment! They are just a few of the hottest fashion trends for girls and women of all ages. I recently shared a few fabulous tie waist dresses, and can’t get enough of this fun trend.

Tie waist dresses will look amazing with slide sandals, flat sandals, wedge sandals, and ankle booties too. Here are a few trendy tie waist back to school dresses you will love.

This cute and casual tie waist dress is part of the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. It has such amazing reviews and is on sale for $31.90. I love how they styled it with sneakers. It will look great with the shoe of your choice! PS: It comes in heather gray and in black, but both are selling out very quickly. If your size is sold out, I would definitely keep checking as you never know when it will be restocked.

This cute side knot dress is a twist on the popular tie front trend! To tell you the truth, I adore it just as much.

If it’s on your wish list make sure you grab it ASAP as there are only a few sizes left!
