To help you conquer your back to school shopping spree, we spoke to two stores specializing in the latest fashions. Here’s what they had to say about Back to School Style.
Gap Kids: A Uniform That Feels Unique
If your school requires uniforms, you’re probably searching for fun and creative ways to follow the rules while still expressing your unique personality. The answer? Gap Kids. Their wide selection of uniform apparel is lightweight, comfortable, and made from quality fabrics, which means you’re treating yourself to style that will last.
For boys, Gap carries polo shirts, chino pants and shorts, and longer Bermuda shorts. All their pants are treated with GapShield to prevent spills and stains, and their varsity jackets will keep you warm during football games. Girls can choose between skirts, romper dresses, and the popular ponte pants, which are super soft and feature five pockets. They also carry both skinny and flare pants to help you find the perfect fit.
If you’re looking for true one-of-a-kind style to add to your uniform, Gap has a ton of fun and unique accessories. Knee socks, key chains, patches, and backpacks are great ways to add personality to any uniform.
Whether your cruising through the cafeteria, cramming for a biology test, or trying out for the cheerleading team, a Gap uniform gives you the confidence to go all out!
Buckle: A Fresh Spin on Your Favorite Brands
When it comes to today’s most popular brands, no one keeps more in stock than Buckle. They carry many West Coast brands, including Billabong, Society, Hurley, Young & Reckless, RVCA, Obey, and Fox. They also carry other brands you’re sure to find on the top of every back-to-school shopping list, such as Affliction, American Fighter, Sinful, Rock Revival, Miss Me, BKE, Kancan, Free People, Amuse Society, and Angels & Diamonds.
Because Buckle has so much to choose from, they offer an amazing service that makes back to school shopping a snap. Simply call ahead and tell the sales associate your name, size, and style. He or she will stock a dressing room with items in your size, including shirts, jeans, and accessories. When you arrive, trying things on and finding the right look will be fast, easy, and fun! Plus, the associates at Buckle know what’s in style. Their suggestions for boys include lightweight pullovers, short sleeved button downs, and colored jeans. For girls, the “in” looks include flannel shirts, denim with touches of bling, and a boho chic vibe. They also carry youth sizes for the younger set. When it comes to fashion, Buckle knows what’s hot and what’s not.
