Guide to Fall Fashion

Many of our employees are moms so we realize that there are many back-to-school shopping guides out there. What we have not seen is a guide that helps you plan for all the fall and winter occasions that will be coming up. We know how busy you are so we have created the information below as a helpful reminder about what your kids clothing needs might be in the coming months.

Back-to-school – It is still hot in much of the country and kids will continue to wear shorts and tees well into September. But all of a sudden a cold snap will hit; you never know when or where so order early to avoid any panic on that first cool morning. Layering is best for early in the season. Skirts and tunic dresses can be worn alone to begin with … add tights or leggings as the weather gets colder. Sweaters and sweatshirts are also a staple for the layered wardrobe. Remember to stock up on basics like twill pants, knit leggings, polo shirts, etc. as sizes and colors may not be in stock later in the season when you really need them!

Halloween – October 31 seems pretty far away right now, but it will sneak up on you. Buy your costumes early so that you don’t have to fight crowds and dig through messy piles at the store closer to the spooky evening. Also, remember that kids love this holiday! Don’t miss out on Halloween tees for boys and girls to wear the entire month. Their friends will be envious when they sport pumpkins, ghosts and witches well before actual trick or treating begins.

Holiday – We know… who wants to think about Christmas, Hanukah, or Kwanza when there is still Halloween and Thanksgiving to plan for, but if you want to get your holiday cards out on time, shop now. It is so frustrating to book the photographer for your annual photo only to discover that the matching outfits you want are not available in the right sizes. Get them early so your kids can try them on. You will also be prepared for those last minute holiday parties and you will have one less stress already knowing what everyone is going to wear. (Note: We will be adding holiday styles to on September 1st)

We hope that this guide helps you get a jump start on the season ahead. Let us know if you have any questions or your own suggestions to add to our list. We love hearing from you!
