Back to School Trends for Girls!

It’s already Back to School time for kids! It’s almost crazy as to how fast the summer flew by!

My own sons don’t start school for another 2 weeks, but we’ve already begun the fun part for me… Back to School Shopping!

Oh, yes. I love this time of year because I stock up on all the latest trends and styles for my guys. It’s also the time of year I spend the most amount of money on clothing for them, so I really like to make sure I get everything that they’re going to need for the school year, or at least… the first half!

Which brings me to the question, “What are some of the best Back to School trends?”

This week and next week I’m going to dish on the top trends for girls and boys when it comes to this 2012-2013 school year!

Here we go!

1. Bright, Bold Colors!

That’s right! Bright! Bold! Colorful! Vibrance! It’s all trending right now. I love bright, bold colors for girls because it’s such a fun and feminine trend. Any little girl looks adorable in some bright, beautiful colors. In my opinion, it’s just a true HAPPY trend!

2. Plaid and Stripes!

I love stripes and plaid prints! If you look at “older” trends right now for women, stripes are everywhere right now. I love seeing this trend transcend itself down to little girls. I have 2 nieces who just love wearing stripes and plaid. It’s a girly trend and I love it for the Back to School season!

3. Animal Prints!

ROAR!! I love this wild and carefree trend! It’s all about the animal prints and keeping yourself fashionably fabulous. It’s a different kind of trend that can work beautifully if you have a little lady into fashion! Match with a denim jacket and you’re off to school!

4. Embellishments!

A little sparkle and pizzazz on your hoodie! There’s a lot of embellishments on hoodies and blazers this season! Sequins, glitter, sparkles, you name it, it’s there! It’s a fun trend because it really adds some excitement to a plain hoodie or blazer! Such a cute Back to School trend for little girls!

5. Polka Dots!

Oh, yes… they’re back and they’re FABULOUS! Polka dots are (I feel) the perfect trend for ANY little girl. Anyone can pull off a polka dot skirt or top or sweatshirt or socks. It’s an adorable trend which works beautifully.

I love these trends for girls this season. They’re all age-apprioprate and just GIRL FUN!

  1. These are some great ideas to keep in mind as I go school clothes shopping for my daughter. Fall fashion is starting to emerge in every aspect of clothing. I have seen a good amount of hoodies for girl with very creative patterns as well as finding great dresses that are trendy and classy. I want to see if I can find that glitter hoodies that you posted for my daughter. I think she would love it! Thanks again for the inspiring ideas.
