Back-to-school season means a new chance for your kids to rev up their self-expression — whether in the form of a mohawk, pajamas, sticker accessories or missing shoes. Moms share their favorite tales of their children’s funky fashion choices.
If you want to be fashionable but gentle on your wallet, strike a balance: Invest in key pieces you’ll wear often and shop at fast-fashion stores for trendy pieces that you’ll just be infatuated with for a few seasons. Check out thrift stores for classics or fun vintage pieces. Patterned or bright scarves and fun jewelry can tie outfits together.
