Leggings, Jeggings, and Skeggings!

Lights. Camera. Action! This week has been a whirlwind for me as I’ve been traveling to do various news segments to talk Back to School fashion trends for less – all thanks to Marshalls & TJ Maxx since I’m one of their spokespeople for this season. This afternoon I’m off to San Diego – for a fashion show with 15–20 kids tomorrow morning. I can’t wait.

Scoring designer brands at an off price retailer for 20-60% off is fabulous so it’s fun spreading the word about these hot deals & styles.

Yesterday I went to Columbus, Ohio to talk “Celeb Kid Looks for Less” on the Good Day Columbus Show.

You can take a peek at the segment here.  The kids were adorable and we covered how to get Jaden Smith’s rocker look, Ava Phillippe’s Boho Chic, Malia Obama’s Preppy Chic, and Brooklyn Beckham’s sporty look.

In Philly, my hometown I did the cutest segment on my own Good Day show to cover Leggings, Jeggings, and Skeggings, along with the fact that layers layers and more layers are in for the boys. My models were so much fun! And Kenzie was very jealous that she did not get to participate. Next time!

Here’s some of the buzz words you need to stay up on the latest fall trends for kids.

Here are just a few of her must-have looks and back-to-school trend pieces that your kids will surely be buzzing about:
Jeans + Leggings = Jeggings: Not quite jeans, but as stretchy as a legging, these trendy bottoms are a must-have for younger girls and teenagers.  This season, look for five-pock varieties with a deconstructed or worn finish.
Nobby Tees: T-shirts made with a thin, worn material and finished with raised threading is a nobby tee.  Look for nobby tees with a trendy graphic design in neutral shades like gray, black and white.
Lots of Layering: Layering is the trend of the season for boys and girls alike.  Layer a graphic tee over a flannel shirt for a look that’s casual and cutting edge.
Skirts + Leggings = Skeggings: A skirt attached to a legging is a skegging and a must-have for all girls this season. Pair skeggings with a nobby tee and military-inspired boots for a hip and comfortable look.
Deconstructed Denim: This season, denim is worn and finished with hardware.  For girls, look for jeans with embellished back pockets; for boys, look for strategically placed rips, tears or patches.
