fall fashion trends for boys are going to be this year. After all, my little guy needs to be in style, right? Although I only have boys in my house, I know that some of you have a little fashionista or two running around in your house. Therefore, you are probably wondering what the girl fashion trends are for this fall as you also prepare for your back-to-school shopping, right? So, here’s the skinny on what the latest fall fashion trends are for girls and boys this year...
Yes, layering is still very much in style and probably will be for a while for boys and girls alike. This year, experts are recommending a brave new type of layering by mixing prints and various types of textures with skirts, pants and tops. Just make sure the kiddos don’t get too carried away as they begin layering -- it is possible to wear too many clothes.
Hats are very much in this year, and they serve a dual purpose as they can make an excellent fashion statement while keeping our head cozy in the brisk fall air. It doesn't matter whether your child prefers a beanie, floppy knit or a ball cap -- they all work when paired with the right outfits.
The military and camo style clothing are making a big “splash” in the world of fashion right now. Whether it’s an olive green military-cut jacket for your daughter or a pair of camo pants for your son or vice versa, it looks like this is going to be a popular fall fashion trend for boys and girls.
Everyone needs at least one piece of leather in their wardrobe, especially kids looking to be in style this fall. Choosing a fashionable leather piece isn’t difficult for girls. Fashion designers have started incorporating leather pieces here and there when dressing their runway models. Leather jackets, pants, skirts, shirts with leather accents and even colored leather pieces will all make a statement this fall. The trick is to choose only one leather piece and dress around it -- keep it simple. For boys, leather jackets are back in, regardless of age. Based on what I've seen, we will start to see little toddler boys sporting leather jackets this fall.
Bold Colors and Textures
This is another one of the fall fashion trends that both boys and girls can enjoy. Designers are beginning to have fun with textures and bold colors on everything from shirts to shoes to pants. Some of the popular colors you may see children (and adults) sporting this fall include orange, emerald green, turquoise, yellow, red and more. The textures include velvet, leather, peplum, etc. Therefore, encourage your kiddos to experiment with new colors and textures this fall!
