Looking good this time of year means finding back-to-school fashions, ideally saving a few dollars along the way.
Sure, you can fight over aisle space with blue-haired ladies in the mall, but why?
These Best of Stylish Back-to-School Fashions will save time and money, and make sure your student arrives to class in style.
Peace and love
If my 10 year old has taught me anything, it’s that peace, love and karma are once again cool. Sure, these aren’t fit for Friday night school dances, but for everyday stylish back-to-school fashions, check out the selection of retro chic at Peace Frogs. In addition to Good Karma T’s like this one, they have an assortment of bags, shirts and shorts for boys and girls.
Flirty little dress
With leggings or skinny jeans
If you haven’t bounced around the dELiA’s catalog site yet, do you and your student a favor and spend a few minutes perusing the options. There are what seem like an endless assortment of dresses, like this racerback drop-waist. If she’s more of a jeans gal, dELiA’s is sure to please. Oh, and don’t forget to check out the summer sales. There are some great deals on shoes and dresses that’ll work just fine until winter rolls around.
Lots of pockets
No one has quite figured out why kids need 14 different pockets in a pair of pants or shorts, they just do. That’s part of the reason cargo shorts like these are as popular as they are. Plus, they just make cool back-to-school fashions. As the weather cools, Orvis also has cargo pants for the older, fashionably conscious student.
Now, I realize not every young lady lives in scarf territory. Fear not for scarves are no longer solely for winter fashions. While thicker knits are great for pairing with heavy coats, light neckerchiefs are making a summer comeback. Available in a host of colors, prints, and textures, the best scarves are available from Scarves.com. And make sure to check out their blog section with tutorials from “How To Tie A Scarf” to nail DIY. Scarves.com always seems to have the newest trend in scarves.
Easy to wear
Boarding or surfing; surfing or boarding. From a back-to-school fashions perspective, these are a toss up for most boys. For the boarders, CCS Skateboards is a must see. In addition to all the boarding gear a kid might need, CCS has a huge selection of clothes too. This Dowie Striped Sweatshirt is one of many hooded fleeces on sale. They have a great selection of shoes worth exploring as well.
