Before you know it, kids will be going back to school! It’s the most wonderful time of the year, am I right? Buying school supplies, stylish new kicks, and of course, back to school clothes! I personally love shopping for back to school outfits and fall clothing for kids!

Selecting an outfit for the first day of school is always a fun experience for kids and parents. But when you have a budget, you want to shop smart and stylishly too.

So I took my kids shopping for back to school outfits at Walmart to browse the boys’ section. Walmart’s private apparel brand, George, offers back to school fashion essentials at really affordable prices. This year’s line features everything from quality denim to stylish camo pants and hoodies for layering.

The boys ventured out on their own to pick out some outfits for their first day of school.

Both boys were drawn to Walmart’s George cotton plaid shirts in blue, perfect for those cool morning and warm afternoon fall days. They paired them with George pants which were priced at only $10!

My eldest son is not a fan of skinny or slim fit jeans. With his muscular hockey/soccer legs, they usually fit too snug. So he tried on a pair of George regular fit jeans and loved how they fit.

My eldest was immediately drawn to the elastic-waist cargo pant with cuffs. He paired it with a Tony Hawk hoodie.

While my kids don’t go to a school which require uniforms, I noticed that Walmart carries uniform short-sleeve pique polo shirts, white button-down shirts and black and flat-front pants at a great value.   My son will need to wear black dress shoes, black dress pants and a shirt and tie for his hockey games this year so I will keep these clothing options in mind when I shop next time!

I managed to buy one hoodie, two shirts, two pairs of pants and one pair of jeans – all for under $100!

When your kids need several pairs of pants and jeans plus a variety of shirts and hoodies, Walmart is a great choice for quality, style and price. Walmart stores are fully stocked with all your back to school style needs, so make sure you go shopping now!

  1. In all honesty, I hated shopping at Walmart for clothes as a kid, you know, because to a 12 year, things like that were a big deal. Since going through college, I’ve got a real appreciation for parents who have no shame refusing to buy ridiculously priced brand clothes and shoes. Plus, they’ve stepped up there game as far as styles go!

  2. Cute kids! Love the flannel shirts, seems like they found some cool back to school clothes!

  3. I just love the posses. They are so funny. Walmart would not be my first pick for back to school shopping, but it’s great to see they offer a better selection than in years past. Not everyone can afford to shop department stores, but they should be able to still find great back to school finds.

  4. The clothes are really cute. I took my neighbors daughter shopping for school clothes while her mom worked and she wanted to go to Walmart. She got some cute stuff.

  5. The new clothes are looking great! It seems like Walmart is a great place to shop for back to school clothes.

    Looks like you guys had a great time shopping for clothes! Those are lovely choices and I’m sure shopping also made them excited for school. There are plenty of choices in Walmart, that’s for sure!

  8. Good to know that walmart has a lot of clothes for the kids! Back to school shopping can be pretty boring for boys especially if they don’t like the clothes that they’re seeing. Walmart will always be one of my top choices for clothes!

    Our school here in the Philippines usually required to wear uniforms but these are great choices that I can’t resist!

  14. Back to School is a time with lots of fun with new shopping & busy days ahead. And selecting an outfit for the first day of school always going to be so much fun for both kids and parents. We do prefer Walmart for our usual shopping as they always come up with best deals that you could use!

  15. We simply shop for bigger size uniforms in UK> I love the idea of wearing own clothes to school, yet I understand the value of uniformity! Looks like they like their new outfits 🙂
