School time is back again! Whether it’s starting school for the very first time, or moving onto the next grade, that first day can set the tone for children of all ages. Now that summer with their neighborhood friends is drawing to an end, children know that the first day of school can bring many surprises! They may be anxious about the new friends they’ll meet, who their new teacher will be, not having as much play time as they did during the summer, but most importantly… what they’ll wear! The first day of school is one big fashion show for children, as it’s their time to set the best impression on their classmates and teachers alike! With so much back to school shopping happening towards the end of Summer, the outfit possibilities are endless, given that the school doesn't have a formal dress code or uniform. Let’s talk about ways you can help your child/children look cool for back to school!
Dressing Comfortable On The First Day of School
With so much curiosity about what the first day of school will bring, a comfortable outfit from head-to-toe will make that first day a bit easier! Breathable fabrics that are stretchable and lightweight can allow children to move about their day with less restriction, and comfy. The best fabrics to keep in mind are cotton and blends. Since each state may vary in the first day of school forecast, the amount of layers can also change. By pairing the outfit with a just-in-case sweater or jacket, children won’t get too chilly in their classrooms. Knowing that growth spurts are inevitable with children, knowing their clothing sizes can help tremendously. Starting with shoes/sneakers that fit properly, children can run around the school halls with their newly-made friends! Matched with a shirt and pants that fit pleasantly, your child will be on their way to have the best first day of school possible!
