Monday a la Mode: Back to school fashions – fall 2014

By M Kimball – ElephantBeads

This year’s vocabulary word for middle school fashion: Eclectic.Back to School Trends 2014

In the United States alone, according to the National Retail Federation, more than $70 billion flowed from parents’ pockets to ensure their kids (including college-bound students) were dressed for success. With many students already into their first few weeks of classes, back to school shopping is well underway, but it’s not too late to get your kids on board with the three back-to-school fashion trends.

1) ACCESSORIZE: From baseball caps to fedoras, retro sunglasses to fringe bracelets – accessories are uber popular this year. The hats and glasses may not be in evidence in the classroom, but they will reappear for the walk across campus in the sunshine. And the overall look? Eclectic!

2) POP THE COLOR: Bright colors are IN. According to fashion blog Fashionista.com, orange in particular will be making its appearance this fall to brighten up the cloudier days. But colors will be seen alongside animal prints, plaids, and classic black. The overall look? Eclectic!

3) GUYS: STYLE UP! This fall, guys will be making a statement of their own. The look is likely to be “rebellious prep,” according to Andrew Bevan, Teen Vogue’s style features editor, as quoted in a recent CBS News piece. The guys’ look this year? You guessed it: Eclectic!

Talk to us: What will your kids be wearing this fall? Were there any “must have” items they didn’t want to go back to school without?

It’s never too early…

This is the time of year when those of us who are artsy or craftsy begin hankering for the holidays. How early is TOO early to begin taking the holiday decorations out of storage? When can we begin knitting, crocheting, hammering or painting the handmade gifts we’ll be wrapping up or stuffing in stockings? The answer is different for everybody (just as the holidays we celebrate may be different), but the treasuries here may put you in the mood for Halloween or Christmas…
