Every year, inevitably, my kids outgrow ALL of their clothes. So when it’s time to shop for school clothes, they end up with a whole new wardrobe.

I’m a big believer in letting them pick out clothes that express their style and make them feel good, while getting staples that they can mix and match throughout the year. Each year, we put together a capsule wardrobe of basics that can be worn interchangeably to create different looks, and a few stand out stable like a fun pair of boots or leather jacket — that elevates any outfit and showcases their personal style.
