Now let’s check out the latest trends in boys school fashion and school shoes

Camo Clothes, Shoes, and Accessories

From Can’t Hide From the Camo in Back-to-School Clothes:

The look grows up into capris and miniskirts, among other silhouettes, for tween and teen girls, says Sonya Cosentini, style adviser for T.J. Maxx and Marshalls. It works for both the younger market and for the teen set.

“Camouflage is a print that you don’t always see on the shelves, but it’s a trend that makes it’s way back every year in a different way. This year, that way is absolutely in the details, and we will continue to see that into the fall fashion season,” Cosentini says.

The print is a direct complement to the from-the-runway military look that’s hot this season in every market — from womenswear to infant clothes.

“Kids are really savvy from a fashion standpoint. When they see a trend on adults, they want it too. There’s no lag time,” says 77 Kids’ Schumacher. And, she added, unlike some adult trends, this one translates to childrenswear because comfort is at its heart.

There’s also an implied durability, and the back-to-school catalogs, for example, are full of camo-clothed kids running, jumping and playing in the autumn leaves.
