Shopping for back-to-school clothing for your kids can easily veer into unexpected nightmare territory. Too many items, too many styles, too many options — and trying to stay on budget? Forget it. If you, like so many parents this time of year, find yourself cowering in a Target changing room underneath an ever-growing pile of tiny rejected clothing items — we hear you.
Every parent wants their child to feel confident and happy with how they look on the first day of school; first impressions count, you know? But not every kid is the same shape or size, and not every child fits into those cookie-cutter molds of back-to-school clothing commercials. It’s tough to find affordable outfits that are comfortable, stylish and that let your kids express themselves.
So where to begin? Right here: We’ve rounded up a back-to-school outfit for every type of kid, from the hippie to the prepster to the rocker and everywhere in between.
