We've been mixing and remixing children's fashion for over 15 years, so we've learned a thing or two on the magic formulas that make an outfit pop! Here are our top 5 tips for hitting the back-to-school scene with style!
1 - Better Basics: Make sure you have a few key things that you can include as the recipe to many outfits! A great pair of jeans (we love MOLO!), some fresh sweats (NUNUNU are musts!), a twirly skirt (Rylee & Cru for sweet and Huxbaby or NUNUNU for a little edge) is great! Make sure you have a plain white and black tee (and some other new neutrals) and some basic hoodies to add to the mix! (NUNUNU, Quincy Mae, Mini Rodini)
2 - Wow pieces: Then you add some pizzazz with cool prints or interesting materials. We suggest you head over at Mini Rodini, Bobo Choses or Rylee & Cru, for instance. Add a sweatshirt or tee with a digital print - we love the NASA s/s - or add a fluffy topper by Bobo in autumnul colors! (Don't forget to layer!) Of course a concert tee is a perfect choice (Rowdy Sprout) - make sure you can answer some basic questions about the band though! Gotta be a legit fan!
3- Accessories: Rad socks (Tia Cibani has our hands down favorite), a scarf, balaclava, cozy hat with ears or trucker hat (Piccolini NY or NUNUNU), some cute jewelry by Meri Meri and some shades by FCTRY are good bets!
4-Shoes: For back to school you can't go wrong with a cool pair of kicks. Converse, Air Forces or another great style!
5-Attitude: Fashion is all about confidence, so get creative, mix it up and then rock it! [Here's a throwback image from Babesta Beat!]
