Getting the kids ready to go back to school can sometimes be a bit manic with getting uniforms sorted, books and exercise books bought and covered and organising lunches amongst other things. It’s such a busy and often expensive time of year that often there is little time to think of your own wardrobe.
With the back to school season just around the corner, we asked parents on our Facebook page to tell us what their essential items are for the school run. School run style is all about accessible and comfortable clothing yet we all still want to look and feel good.
Whatever the weather
School run style can be particularly difficult due to the ever-changing British weather. With the constant threat of rain showers and wild winds it can be a tough decision in the mornings when time is of the essence.
Below are some of some of our essential items for braving the showers. The top item recommended by our fans is a good quality waterproof coat- light and very waterproof! Comment below and let us know yours.

The bare essentials
There are 3 essential items to have on hand for this time of year
1. Good sturdy footwear:
Comfortable, flat and with a huge range available; trainers are an obvious choice for busy parents on the school run. If you’re looking for a more glamorous look, why not try a pair of flat leather boots, or boots with a low heel if you want a little lift.
Most of our fans agreed that the most important item for the school run is a waterproof jacket so that you can be ready to brave any unexpected showers. Below we’ve put together a mix of our favourite waterproof jackets that are both practical and fashionable, ideal for the school run.
A back to school survival list would not be complete without the inclusion of an umbrella. It is a must for the school run especially if you walk some of the way. At F&F we’ve got a huge range of umbrellas for both parents and kids. Whether you’re after a simple design that is easy to slip into a handbag or briefcase, or a vibrant and fun print F&F has a huge range this Autumn.
