Back to School Style with OshKosh #OshKoshFirstDay

Back to School Style with OshKosh!

I love shopping with my sons for back-to-school clothes, accessories and supplies. There’s something just really fun for me in doing it. I love seeing their excitement and their anticipation for the new year, it’s very special!

Right now, it’s all about getting some new styles for them. As they’ve gotten older, they all seem to gravitate towards certain styles, colors and trends. It’s funny watching each of them develop their own fashion personality, especially my 2 oldest. They really know what they like and what they don’t like. It’s adorable for me.

Today is all about rel=”nofollow”OshKosh!

I have to say, I love OshKosh. I remember MY mother buying me and my sister items from OshKosh for back-to-school time. It’s a total full-circle moment for me. OshKosh is an iconic brand and I love seeing these boys rocking their own OshKosh styles!

Here was me on the first day of school in 1986 rocking my OshKosh! 🙂

If you’re like me, you love knowing what the new trends will be for back-to-school time. It’s great to see what’s stylish and what’s “cool” for the new year, right!?

I’m excited to share 10 Must-Haves from OshKosh B’gosh this Back-to-School Season:

1. Denim
• Denim is the Heritage of the OshKosh brand, this is what I had when I was a little girl from OshKosh. They have overalls up to size 12! This season what will be trending is: For girls, denim skirts, shirts and jackets AND For boys, new skinny jeans or classic fit denim pants. The great thing about denim, it’s fashion-forward and age appropriate.

2. Girls TLC – Tunics & Leggings Collection
• I love tunics and leggings for girls because they are easy outfitting, you can mix and match the fun prints and patterns. Everything is soft and comfortable, 100% cotton and very age appropriate dressing for girls up to age 12.

3. Uniform
• If you’re child wears a uniform, you’re in luck! This is new in the market to OshKosh. All uniform items are on sale – 40% off right now! Special doorbuster for polos and shorts at $7 and $9. OshKosh has built fashion collections around the uniforms to show fun, fashion flair while kids are still in school uniforms

4. OKO (OshKosh Original) Tees
• OKO Tees! They are designed by designers in the New York office – colorful, comfortable and collectible tees in new graphics, prints and patterns. You can pair them with denim or fashion
and they have become a collectible item over the years.

5. Girls Active
• Just this year, OshKosh expanded their line to offer skirts and tees. What’s great is that they have inspirational messaging, pops of neon, glitter and a fun attitude.

6. Boys Triple Jumper Pant
• Moms love these pants because they have an elastic waist with functional drawstring, ankle zipper and lined with jersey. They have the same great comfort and durability with a new level of style. There are basic colors like navy, or pops of color with red, orange or even camo (see my William below!)!

7. Shoes
• OshKosh expanded their line this year! All shoes pair with the different clothing collections so your kids’ outfits can be head-to-toe. Sneakers and high tops with sparkles speak to the girls active line; ballet flats speak to the uniform line; shoes with camo speak to the camo line. Included in the 40% off sale going on right now!

8. Boys Fleece Pant
• An absolute staple in boys’ wardrobe!

9. Outerwear
• Necessary to keep warm with going back to school, but also fashionable to layer! Layers for boys is a fashion trend this year (see my boys below!).

10. Essential Wovens
• Button-down comfortable shirts for both boys and girls. For boys, it’s a “Borrowed from Dad” look, which is adorable! Shirt shop for boys to shop in stores, easy way for moms to find shirts for boys.

We had so much fun buying items! I’m telling you, I bought about 5 pairs of pants each for the boys. With these prices I wanted to stock up because the pants are so VERSATILE and go with anything! I also loved the layered vests! It was so much fun adding staple items in with a fashion-forward sense about them!
