Back to School
This school year, it’s not just students and teachers that are coming back—it’s smiles, backpacks, waves and even pants that aren’t sweatpants (although matching sweats are very in). Finally, it’s time for kids to put the past year behind them and look at the bright future ahead. Let’s get back in there! It all starts with a fresh, first-day-of-school outfit that instills major confidence (without a major dent in your wallet).
What should I get for back to school clothes? You can’t go wrong with graphic tees, denim and sneakers for boys and girls of any age, but our Fashion Office has some tips…
2021 is for positive vibes only, and that goes for T-shirt designs. We want sunsets, tie-dyes and animal prints to flood the halls with happy thoughts and fun colors. Also, add in kids’ clothes with retro graphics—a total mood boost with beloved bands, movies and sports stars.
On jeans, look for embellishments: embroidered, patched, printed or pieced. Flared and barrel cuts are perfect for school clothes, too. If Dad’s been waiting for cargo pants to come back, show him how it’s done (now) with utility pockets!
Beyond back-to-school clothing, don’t forget homework! Set up a spot that makes them want to learn with educational toys, the comfiest bedding you ever did feel and a cool alarm clock to keep them on track after late-night cram sessions. Then help them rise and shine with amazing beauty finds that make skin and hair care easy. They’ll feel fresh enough for picture day, even on a random Thursday. If all of this is sounding great for dorm rooms, too, you’re not wrong! Go back to college with our school shopping list of everything they want.
What else do you need for back-to-school shopping? Back-to-school accessories, of course! All the stuff that travels with them: pencils and pencil cases, lunch boxes and backpacks that carry the whole haul. Also, the shoes that get them there. Back to teachers, back to friends and back to everything they missed about being together—and even the things they never thought they’d miss (looking at you, cafeteria food).
