It’s back-to-school season and we can’t help but be excited about the latest fashion trends for kids!

H&M is always a trend-setter when it comes to fashion for the entire family.   There is much British influence this season with lots of checks, tweeds and quirky details.

Playful colours, warm neutrals and imaginative prints pop out this season.  I personally like the girlie looks with the rock influence in some of the styles!

Accessories are a must – cute bags, leather boots, ballerina flats or loafers can complement an outfit.

Denim is always in style; it’s comfy, durable and practical it’s available in a wide range of fits, styles and washes.  Many of H&M’s popular basics are made of organic cotton – we love organic!

For boys, stripes, checks and playful graphics are in style.  Leather boots or canvas sneakers can finish up a look.  Accessories like flat caps, beanies, scarves, bow-ties and suspenders can also play up an outfit!

    This would be an amazing help with four children going back to school in September!

  2. Oh so hope I win this one!! The kids would love to do a little shopping (their pants are now capris – not a great look for a 7 year old boy!!)

    Great contest and perfect timing for the new school year shopping rush.

  4. You mean I shouldn’t send my kids back to school with all their pants having holes in the knees? Fingers crossed for a win! Thanks for running the contest.
