Stay in the Know

Back-to-School Style

There’s nothing like the promise of a new school year. It’s a welcome opportunity to hit the proverbial “reset” button – and for students, that often means enjoying a fresh start in the form of new outfits and accessories that prove they’re back and better than ever. 

Typically, as the first few days of the school year pass, the excitement of a new wardrobe fizzles … but that won’t be the case this time around. Student-approved brands are offering an exceptional lineup of trendy yet timeless pieces and cool classroom-approved products that will have them – dare we say it? – excited to wake up with their alarms and seize the school day.

Whether your student is a VPK cutie or a college-bound senior, these outfit-making pieces and “smart” products are sure to help them exude on-campus confidence all year long:
