As a fashion-obsessed child, picking out a back-to-school outfit was basically the most important thing I would do that entire school year. Luckily, as the child of parents who loved taking pictures, I have almost every outfit documented... for better or for worse.
Thinking back on the good (the adorable floral overalls -- see below) and the bad (the baggy Nike T-shirt and sweatpants from my tomboy phase), I started to wonder: what did everyone else wear on their first day of school? Who wore a plaid kilt or a neat blouse... and whose mothers let them dress themselves with hilarious results?
Below, the beginning of a collection of vintage back-to-school fashion courtesy of our HuffPost staffers. Click through and then submit your best pics. From the adorable to the awkward, we want to see it all!
