When it comes to back to school shopping Lands End is the go-to place for those classic, preppy looks for kids- and they’re affordable (especially if you shop Lands End overstock items!)
These are the clothes you want them to wear for class pictures, assembly day and if your kids are in private school like mine, these are the clothes that are perfect for “dress down-dress up day” (which translates to: No uniforms, No Jeans, No Sweats).
Here are 5 styles that I fell in love with when looking through the fall Lands End catalog from the Style School event in NYC last week.
I am currently addicted to this bright, vibrant shade of green. Contrast it with Navy, Purple, ORANGE (see bottom images)- Such a fun color!
The Classic Rain Gear
“We all live in a yellow submarine, a yellow submarine”…. this rain gear is classic, simple and fun for a rainy day. I love that there is a girls and boys version too!
Layers, Oranges and Outerwear
Layers is something you hear over and over again “don’t be afraid to layer”, “layers are in”… and there’s a reason for it- they can really make an ordinary look “pop” and it also allows you to have multiple looks with the same articles of clothes. I love the sweater and blazer look on the top right (below).
Much like my obsession with lime, I also fancy the color orange for fall (every year)- burnt orange especially. As I mentioned earlier in this post, the blues navy blues are perfect for this.
Can we group shoes and backpacks into outerwear? Oh, well. I’m going to.
The Lands Ends Back Packs come in 4 sizes for pre-school to High Schoolers. I cannot say enough about these backpacks. They are high quality, easy on the shoulders for heavy book carriers and start at just $19.50! I have one of the larger backpacks for when we travel to amusement parks, etc- it is a God send. Seriously.
When kids are younger it can be hard to steer them away from the licensed backpacks, but if you can- or if you have older kids these backpacks are the ones to check out.
Every kid needs a great fall jacket the bottom left Berber fleece ($49.50) is the one I picked out for my son. Perfect for fall weather, totally cozy and neutral color- so it goes
And Last but not least, sneakers! These Lands Ends Trekker’s are perfect for play or dressy-casual outfits. Note the the blue and neon yellow The best part of these shoes in my book? The no-fuss bungee lacing! Whoo-hoo for easy sneakers!
