The school year is finally here and with it comes another shopping trip for back to school supplies. However, it’s not all pencils and books – picking out new back to school clothes can actually be fun, especially at Teddy Bearskins where the staffers are experts at fashionable school outfits.
Teddy Bearskins has been in business for 32 years and offers clothes from sizes 0 months to girls 16 and boys 20. Manager Robin Silva has been with the store for 16 years. She shares the back to school excitement with the kids and is totally up-to-date with the latest clothing trends.
For girls, Robin tells me that clothes “with a bohemian flare, printed leggings and general comfiness” are trending. Floral prints, she says, are surprisingly big in the winter, and animals are also popular (think high heel wearing giraffes on a pair of leggings).
Joules is just one of the comfy cozy brands that has clothing with both animals and floral patterns. This line also features backpacks and lunchboxes so you can match from head to toe.
Boys are a bit more classic with their trends, choosing a flannel shirt with a simple t-shirt underneath as their cozy go-to - like the lined Quicksilver flannel shirts. Soft performance pants that are lined for comfort and warmth are also popular.
For the more fashion conscious kid, Mayoral has a line of boys’ and girls’ clothing that range from classic to cool printed tees.
“We have all price ranges [and] we can help you put something together that fits your pocketbook,” says Robin.
