  • Simple & Chic


    Getting ready for school is easy as A-B-C with these basics that are far from boring. A pop of color on the bottom ($12.99), stripes on top ($9.99), and a splash of sparkle on the shoes finish up this elegant combo.

  • Smart Layers


    Tossed on over his fave tee ($10.49) and comfy pull-on pants ($12.59), this hoodie ($13.99) is a must-have when those chilly fall temps hit. Our unsolicited advice: You may want to nab a few in case he “forgets” one in his locker.

  • Sophisticated Charm


    Chambray is on the top of this fall’s must-have fashion list. An adorable tunic ($14) is an easy way to rock it. Paired with a sassy leopard-print belt, heart leggings, and neutral booties, your little gal will score an A+ for style.

  • Timelessly Hip


    We are all about stocking up on essentials. Say hello to the classic baseball tee ($8.98), which he’ll want in every color. Pair it with jeans ($15.39) and high tops for an easy go-to outfit.

  • Updated Boho Basics


    Embellished stretch jeans ($19.99)? Check! A peek of plaid in the hem of her shirt ($10.49)? Check! Denim moto jacket ($17.49)? Check! Sporting all of the latest trends at recess? Check!

  • Preppy Points


    We love this color-block tee ($5.98) paired with cargo pants ($13.99) and slip-on plaid kicks. Comfortable, cool, and kid-approved.

  • Sweet & Spirited


    Those graphic tees ($7.99) are her favorite closet go-tos. Matched with an oh-so-comfy skirt ($7.99) and sporty quilted bomber, she’s got a fab first-day-of-school look.

  • Mix-and-Match Style


    The collared shirt ($5.59) is a little preppy. The graphic hoodie ($13.99) is a little sporty. Paired with cargo pants ($12) for an outfit that adds up to a whole lot of cool.
