The School Drop Off Dad Style Edit

There are nearly 180 school days a year—if you’re in charge of drop off and/or pick-ups for Junior, well, that’s a helluva lot of outfits. For most dads (yes, not all dads, see: Tonic Bar Dad below), mornings can be a blur. You’ve got enough decision-making in your day, and overthinking your style game to impress the other dads (it’s not a competition, except when you’re winning), shouldn’t be one of them.

No worries, whether your post-drop routine takes you straight to the office, to your morning coffee run, or back to those zoom calls—we’ve done the digging for you. Below are 14 fool-proof outfits to get you there.

BROOKLYN HEIGHTS DAD

He always walks his kids to school, probably doesn’t even own a car. He roasted his own coffee from fresh beans this morning and always grabs the paper on the way. In his mind, it’s Autumn all year round.

COFFEE RUN DAD

His clothes might be designer, or from the $1 Jet Rag sale, impossible to tell. He may go to work later, or not. He makes his own schedule.

HEADING TO THE OFFICE DAD

He was excited to get back in there. He has meetings at all hours and he’s already worked out this morning—at Equinox, of course. Or that new MMA gym.

OLD SCHOOL DAD

He doesn’t know what the world’s coming to these days. He’s not one to let it slide when the kids smart-mouth his wife, otherwise known as, their mother. He might ride a motorcycle, or just looks like he does.

PREPPY TECH DAD

He looks too young to be a dad. He carries a backpack instead of a suitcase. He’s already set up his toddler’s Apple ID account for down the road.

TONIC BAR DAD

He already got in his daily Erewhon Market run this morning. He can wax poetic about Reishi and his athleisure is always on point. He never met a pair of designer running shoes he didn’t like.

WORK FROM HOME DAD

In his mind, zoom is no reason to slack off in the style department. He has a stand-up desk in the kitchen. He knows all the neighbors, and would never be caught dead without a strong no-show sock game.
