It's time to put away those beach bags and take out the lunch boxes — the new school year is almost upon us. But there's no need to stress if you're anxious about the annual back-to-school shopping trip.
Senior lifestyle editor at Zulily.com, Amy E. Goodman, visited TODAY Tuesday to share the top trends this season.
Let your little one roar into the new school year with an animal-themed outfit. From leopard-print shoes to a wolf appliqueé T-shirt, the options are endless!
Plaid is one of the most versatile patterns: Your kids can wear it all the way into the holidays! Feel free to dress it down for the school day or dress it up with different separates and nicer shoes for a special occasion.
If the knit fits!
While it can be tough to think about warm and fuzzy clothing in the middle of August, you'll be glad you invested in these chic and cozy knits come fall. A fun knit dress with colorful tights will look great and keep her comfy all day long. And for him, check out that cool glow-in-the-dark T-shirt!
Adults are loving the athleisure trend, so why can't kids get in on the sporty look? Sweats and easy separates are all the rage this year; just look for items with a special touch like trendy pockets or a lace-accented shoulder to make it feel elevated.
