Cute Back to School Clothing for Girls and Boys

It is that time of year again – back to school. The buses are running, the school bells are ringing, and the kids can’t spend all day in pajamas! While some parents may be joyous over the return to normalcy, others are saddened by their littlest babes heading off to kindergarten or pre-school for the first time. How did they grow up so fast? No matter the age of your child, finding school clothes for girls is always fun, and this year we even have some adorable boys school clothes for your biggest and littlest school bound kids. Here are all of the school clothes for girls and boys we’ve fallen in love with this year.

Inspiring & Sustainable School Clothes for Girls & Boys

Free To Be Kids

Cute Back To School Clothing For Girls And Boys

We absolutely love when our kids wear fun graphic tees, but we don’t necessarily love the negative or gender cliched messages that are so often painted across most t-shirts. Free to Be Kids gives us positive vibes that you won’t find at most retailers. For every “I’m Too Cute To Do Homework” shirt that tells our girls that the world is more interested in their beauty than their brains, they hit back with “Smart Girls Club.” For every “Troublemaker” or “Eat My Dust” shirt that perpetuates the image of boys being rowdy and insensitive, they’ve got designs like “Super Kind” or “Boys Will Be Boys Good Humans.”

We should all be celebrating intelligence and perseverance in our girls because their worth is based on so much more than just their cuteness (although, they are pretty cute). We should all be encouraging kindness in our boys because they’re more than just troublemakers and athletes. Besides, do we really want our girls to think that they can get away with being princesses for the rest of their lives or our boys to think that being a jerk is acceptable? Girls can rock shirts with tigers and insects as well as (if not better than) boys can; and boys can proudly be A Cat Guy just as easily as they can love dogs.

Free to Be Kids passionately believes that boys AND girls deserve to see, hear, and wear better messages. They put that belief into practice by designing positive alternatives to the usual mainstream options, because “In a World Where You Can Be Anything,” they intentionally choose kindness, encouragement and love; and that is something WE SHOULD ALL CARE about. Every single one of us.

So, this back-to-school season, encourage your young scholars to go high, even when the world goes low – especially when they go low. Rise above any bullying, intolerance, or hate you may see around you, and shine your love and kindness on everyone around you. Skip the cliches and buy your kids ethically produced, sweat-shop free t-shirts that you can really be proud of.

Princess Awesome

Cute Back To School Clothing For Girls And Boys

Your daughter is a princess-but maybe she likes to play in the mud? What if your little lady enjoys science experiments or digging for dinosaur fossils in the yard before tea time?

Little girls are sugar, spice, and whatever they want to be! No longer are girls going without pockets, or losing the magic of a twirly dress just because they like construction work. Princess Awesome recognized the need for girls to be able to do it all-while visually representing themselves through clothing. Princess Awesome speaks to your little girl’s interests, instead of just patterns.

The prints are amazing-ranging from rocket-launching leggings, to a dress filled with construction equipment, and created with bold, energetic colors to match your little girl’s feisty personality. Your girl rules, and so should her clothing. Not only are these items boldly speaking empowerment for the next generation, they will be standing up for females everywhere comfortably, since these pieces are made with cotton jersey.

Contemporary and Classic Girls & Boys School Clothes


Everyone has a different way in which they see themselves: fashion is the way we tell our story to be to the world. Our personal style is woven into the clothes we wear and delivered in the way we portray ourselves. Are we funky and free, calm with a wild side, or happy-go-lucky and loving life? It really all depends. Appaman is one of our favorite brands for telling this story to the world. They offer everything from street savvy sweats to refined suits and dresses. No matter who you are or what your story you will find something that speaks to your personal style from Appaman.

As the weather cools down for the Fall and into the Winter, it is time to start thinking about warmer coats and jackets. Coats that not only keep them warm at the bus stop but also bring all the flair. The Denali Down Coat is perfect for your little man. The coat is ultra-warm with a removable faux fur lining. For girls, we love the bold statement made with the Sloan Puffer Coat. The eye-catching gold will bring the heat to any cold playground this winter.

Sometimes we are feeling a little dark and moody and shirts like the Ballpark Hoodie are perfect for just that. A simple black hoodie covered with a black shirt and skull and cross bones speaks volumes. Another stylish piece for little ones is the Glen Hoodie, with the stylish buffalo black and red plaid and grey sweatshirt attachment – he will fall in love with the comfort of this one. Both are edgy but still adorable boys’ school clothes.
