Although it appears as though Fall is never going to make its presence known I, for one, will be pleased as punch with its arrival. The thought of shopping for sweatshirts, jeans and long sleeved shirts, well, it has me just tickled pink.
This year, my 10-year-old son has apprised me of the fact he will be accompanying me on all clothes shopping expeditions. Who knew my boy would be so discerning about the clothes he wears? I figured, as long as he’s draped in something cozy and warm, its appearance would have no bearing on him. Well my parenting instincts were off the mark. Each morning before school, my son has vetoed pretty much each ensemble and resorts to one pair of pants that have been washed so many times, its gossamer feel has me surprised they haven’t simply turned to dust in my fingers.
I’ve come to realize since I’ll need to get his input on any items purchased during this season’s back to school shopping expedition I might as well take him along. And of course my daughter wanted to shop for some new school clothing as well! From fashion styles to basics, THE CHILDREN’S PLACE is bending the rules and raising the bar with an incredible new creative team of designers and merchandisers who made bold and bright designs that deliver the style kids want, PLUS the features parents need. Check out our recent back to school shopping experience at The Children’s Place below and keep reading for the BTS trends both boys and girls will go gaga for this season!
What kids will go gaga for The kid-friendly, adult-inspired styles and ability to design an entire outfit head to toe. Girls will love the Skater dresses, moto jackets, beanies and combat boots in sweet floral prints and hints of pink.
They’ll go gaga for Prints with personality, from cats, to bubblegum, fireworks and more. Boys will love their Varsity-inspired shirts and jackets for instant polish and Statement shoes that make an impact – from indie boots, printed slip-ons and hi-top sneakers.
