Project Closet: Debbie Gets You Ready For Back To School

Fashionista, Style Consultant and Author, Debbie Wright is back with more style tips for your closet, and your business!  Check out her tips, then get ready to reinvent YOUR wardrobe!

It’s that time, as we get prepped to send the kids back to school, and research shows this year, people are spending less and shopping smarter.  There’s lots of options, especially for younger kids who have a tendency to outgrow and destroy their wardrobes quickly, so you want to make sure you’re getting the best bargain possible.

More research shows that 20% of people have already begun their shopping, even in early August.  It gives more time to compare and find the best values, to spend less money.  So while you’re out there trying to shop smarter and spend less, Debbie has some trend tips for girls and boys.

For Girls:

It’s all about fun fedoras and hair accessories– topping your outfit off with great accessories.

For tops, it’s all about flowing blouses and layers, with sheer tops and tank tops underneath… This helps tie the whole look together.

For bottoms, patterns are the way to go– skirts and especially jeggings or fitted jeans in patterns and floral prints– are very in.

Bedazzled sequin sneakers are great, and Converse always combine comfort while not being boring.

Just be sure your kids stay LAYERED, and they’ll look stylish and still follow all the dress code rules of the school.

For Boys:

Fedoras are great for the more stylish boys, or a baseball hat to top things off– these are great ways to accessorize any look, preppy or sporty, which are both in.

Once again, it’s all about layers, but plaid shirts and baseball jersies are in, as well as nice preppy polos, with t-shirts underneath.

Denim is always a great way to go, so start ’em early and stores are offering great prices on denim.

For footwear, sneakers are great, especially casual shoes like Converse… and don’t be afraid to add some bright colors to the footwear!

A t-shirt, jeans and Converse is a great, classic look, and if you add a little color to the mix with some bright shoes or plaids, your kiddo will be looking stylish and classic.
