Back to School Fashion For Kids - Articles Surfing
Going back to school is nothing fun but your kids still want to impress the crowds with the latest shoes, and clothes. The school supplies isn't that important but you should still get quality notebooks and folders that are affordable. Since I will be going back to school soon I should know what clothes your children want.
For the teens it depends on a lot of variables. First you have to ALWAYS take them with you when you go shopping for school clothes. Otherwise you'll be buying things that you think are the latest thing, when your child won't like them at all. Then you'll have to go with the hassle of returning everything. Before you go shopping, make sure to bring a list. It never hurts to be organized. Set up a list of supplies, clothes, shoes, and be ready for anything that is forgotten.
Shoes are of course essential. You may need more than one pair. Sandals and flip-flops are pretty popular. You don't have to buy the flip-flops at Victoria secret or Abercrombie because k-mart and target all have them. You also need good sneakers for gym class. My favorites are Nike air. They are small, lightweight, and very breezy. They also come with cool neon stripes and many different colors. For everyday use Chuck Taylor's converse are great! They have many different types, colors, and styles. The ones I like the best are high tops because they don't chaff your ankles as much as the regulars. Another favorite of teens are slip-ons. Rocket Dog is the newest thing because they come with all these cute designs. But the backs are very rough on the ankles. Of course there are many other brands that look the same but the main goal is to find cute comfortable shoes.
For summer school clothes there are many trends. Shorts and a tank top are always worn during the summer. But in school you have to make sure the tank tops don't have spaghetti straps. The best brands for summer tank tops are probably Hollister, Abercrombie and Fitch, and Victoria Secret (as long as its appropriate). Shorts and Capri's are great for summer but it's also good to have a thin pair of jeans for when mosquitoes are hungry. Light blue Tommy jeans are really comfortable! One very popular trend is multi-colored plaid fabrics on Capri's and shorts. One good brand of shorts is Tyte jeans but Abercrombie is good too. Be sure to shop around in other stores for better prices.
For the right teen trend colors look for bright sunny colors. Hot pinks, bright blues, and neon greens. Funky designs are in as long as they are bright colors mixed with black. They really stand out with any color shorts.
The last item of clothing for school is a jacket. You might not think so in the summer but inside the school it gets pretty cold. A thin trench coat would be very cute and comfortable. Big cottony Abercrombie jackets are in style. They have a good feel, are warm, and won't get worn out in the wash. Also check Target for cute cheaper jackets.
EXPENSIVE BRAND TIP: If you like Ed Hardy Tees and can't afford to pay so much for it, check out L.O.L because some shirts look like Ed Hardy but cost a lot less.
