Is it just me or are kids starting to look more and more like tiny little adults? From what they’re wearing to the way they carry themselves, they seem so mature. While trends come and go, there’s one thing that will always remain the same – kids will be kids. They need clothes that will help them look the part, but also be functional and comfortable during recess.

Don’t forget good taste is generated from childhood, so make your kids a part of the family shopping experience and keep them interested in fun, trendy clothes. It’ll pay off in the long run!

Here is a list of the top kids fashions from Tanger that I recommend you mommas (or dads) invest in for your little ones this school year. They’ll score your kiddos extra cool points and save you a buck or two in the process.


Let’s be honest. Has denim for kids ever gone out of style. It’s definitely a classic. Not only is it super stylish, but it’s durable. The two things I would look out for this year – a denim jacket with some sort of sleeve detail and a pair of distressed jeans (yes, I said it). All the cool kids are doing it and no, you don’t have to pay any extra for the worn look. 😉 I’ve found Gap Factory Store to be the best place to score denim items. Here are my picks!

Sporty Kicks

Come on, didn’t you have a pair growing up to?! Grant your kids a classic style they’ll remember forever (and perhaps carry into adulthood). They’re comfy, they slip on and off easily and they go with everything from jeans to sundresses making getting out the door that much quicker and easier. I adore this black and white spin from Gap or of course the classic red, white and blues.





Plaid styles have definitely come and gone over the years, but 2016 is the year they takeover. They’re traditionally seen in boys’ shirts, but girls can repeat with leggings too (talk about making a statement on the first day of school), or a sundress, or simply in some back to school accessories. If you haven’t indulged, I recommend one quick stop into Gap or Old Navy Outlet. You won’t be able to leave with just one piece of plaid perfection.

I give you permission to take credit for cool mom/dad of the year after your Tanger trip. Not only will your little ones leave looking fly, but they just might appreciate the quality time.
