Back To School Trends 2017

From pops of green, fringe, plaid and everything in-between, these are the 7 trends for back to school in 2017.

Pops of Green

Green continues to be a popular color with kids for standout style from the classroom to the playground. This season we’re adding hues of green like a colorful green legging paired with a fun printed dress, a dusty olive jacket with denim basics or a brightly hued plaid or hoodie as a layering piece.

With a nod to the nostalgia of old-school uniforms, plaid will be a mainstay pattern for fall and back to school styles for everything from chromatic button downs to cozy flannel dresses.

Embellished Denim & Chambray

The ‘90s are back with embroidered prints and embellished styles and accessories that will make basic denim and chambray extra special this fall.


Cable knit + fringe + ribbed hems = serious style. The groovy fringe texture transforms looks from basic to oh-so-trendy.

Vests for Boys and Girls

Vests are functional and easy layering pieces for transitioning from fall to winter in cool-kid style.

Prints with Animals

Playful prints with animals are an absolute must for any mini’s wardrobe for both boys and girls.

Faux Fur

For littles who love to get glammed up, tactile outerwear brings all the feels. Equal parts fluffy, fringe-y, fabulous, comfy, cozy and warm.
