Back to School in Style: The Top 5 Fall Trends for Kids

I know it doesn’t seem like it with this crazy heat we’ve been having, but fall is right around the corner! There is so much I love about fall, football, pumpkin spice everything, and especially fall fashion for my boys! They’ve hung out all summer in their Mini Boden baggies and Vineyard Vines tees! Although I love that look, it’s time to refresh their wardrobe for fall.

Don’t worry, this post isn’t going to be all about boy fashion. As you know if you’ve shopped in my store, it’s very girl-centric. It’s the nature of the beast, right? Girls have more to choose from. I’m super excited because this fall I get to shop for my niece that will be arriving mid November! So whether you’re shopping for your little guys, your little girls, or that special niece or nephew, I’m going to help you narrow it down with my top five favorite fall trends.


1. Animal graphics

These whimsical graphics are everywhere for fall. As much as I do love an all over animal print, these fun-loving hedgehogs, fox, dogs, or even raccoons are stealing hearts! Mini Boden, Crew Cuts, Tea Collection, and Hanna Andersson have this trend covered.


2. Distressed denim

Denim is always in style for fall, but this year I am loving all of the fray, rips, and faded treatments. Distressed denim works with boots or sneakers and your favorite tee…instant rockstar at the playground. Shop Crew Cuts, Seven for all Mankind, and Gap for this fun trend!


3. Updated classic shoes

Mary Janes and sneakers are great addition to any fall wardrobe. This year we are seeing glitter, metallics, and studs! Yes, you heard me correctly: sneakers with glitter and metallic…even for the boys! Adidas uses a lot of metallic trim for boys; I love glitter sneakers from Plae for the little gals. Even Hunter is getting in on the action with red sparkle boots!


4. Sweatshirt dresses

This is one of my personal favorites. This trend is cozy yet chic, and you can dress it up or down with boots, sneakers, or glitter flats. Add a statement necklace and you’re all set!


5. Knit cardigans

Fall is all about the layers! For boys and girls, you can add a splash of color to any outfit with a fun, bright-colored cardi from Crew Cuts, Mini Boden, or Hanna Andersson. Perfect for chilly mornings at the bus stop.

Of course I would be remiss if I didn’t mention that all of these trends can be found at my fabulous little boutique, 529 Kids Consign, nestled in the heart of our amazing Old Town, Alexandria! #lovelocalOT ❤️
