Let’s face it, shopping is the best part of the back to school season! I mean the school gives you a shopping list for binders, folders, pencils, and notebooks, but I am here for the things not on that list…the clothes! Not only does 529 have the latest clothing trends, but the accessories in our retail section are spot on for fall. After your new look is pulled together with joggers, cardis, denim and more, grab a fab new slap watch, Frozen inspired hair clip, or a headband.

Chambray shirts are a major fashion trend right now that can be incorporated effortlessly into a casual school look. They pair with black skinny jeans or leggings with flats or sneakers. The combination creates an effortlessly trendy vibe. Boys can get in on this trend too..for fall throw on a chambray shirt with your favorite summer shorts and a pair of sneakers. Colder fall months, layer with your favorite t-shirt and joggers.
Slouchy cardigans are a must-have essential for casual back school clothing. They make any outfit more comfortable and good looking. A slouchy cardigan combined with distressed skinny jeans or leggings creates a balance of both loose and fitted clothing. Don’t worry boys the slouchy cardi is perfect for you too..layer now over your favorite graphic tee and skinny joggers.. are you seeing a jogger trend? I am!
The jogger trend has trickled its way down into kids wear. Think of them as a more formal version of sweatpants. While the silhouette has an elastic waist and cinched elastic around the ankles, the body of the pant is much more relaxed and usually comes in fabrics you’d see in an everyday pant. Boys and girls can both rock this look. Pair with a tee layered under a plaid shirt for a more preppy look or a hoodie for a sporty look.
Quality denim will hands-down get the most wear out of anything else in the closet. It’s comfy, easy to wash, pairs with so much, and here to stay. Kids can show off their own style through their denim. Choose from skinny, flare, cropped, and distressed.
The headband trend is continuing to gain momentum straight into fall! This trend is not only practical but pretty as well. Moms and daughters can coordinate in these amazing knot headbands from local designer D’Maran ($40 for mom and $32 for daughter).
Just in time for the November release of Frozen 2, these princess hair clips should go back to school with every aspiring Elsa and Anna (Lilies and Roses Hair Clips $8 Hairbands $18).
Watchitudes are a great way for parents to teach their children how to tell time with a fashionable accessory. The kids love them because they can select the design that shows off their individuality. They are great for the kids that wear uniforms too, as they can show of their personalities on their wrists (Watchitude $20 retail).
Don’t forget the little ones! You are never to young to make a statement. Let your child express themselves in these amazing tees (Love Bubby t-shirt $28 retail).
