13 one-and-done outfits to wear on the school run this month

Nothing like a throw-on dress or jumpsuit to make those new early mornings easy


None of us can really believe that school is back in our lives, and while we have mixed emotions about it all, the school run is definitely not a part that we’ve missed. Getting everyone up, washed, fed and out the door after almost six months together inside is a strange task to master, and we need all the corner-cutting tricks we can get.

When it comes to dressing ourselves, normally on school run days, we’re lucky if we make it out of our pyjamas. But choosing your new season wardrobe carefully, so that you have some throw-on items that are comfortable and still appropriate for Zoom meetings, is key. Loose dresses, or tailored jumpsuits, give the illusion of considered dressing, when really, it’s as easy as throwing on a tracksuit.

These high street options are perfect for these crazy new mornings, and will stand the test of time well into next term.
