Looking at all the fabulous fall fashions that have been coming in makes some of us here at Me and Kay wish we were kids again. Seriously, haven’t you sometimes seen something from one of our fab designers – like Stella Cove, Tutu Du Monde or Mia New York?  

And this year, with some really fun style trends being identified as the kids get ready to head back to school, the temptation is really strong!  

1 - Graphic prints is one of the top trends in children’s clothing this year, according to the Today Show. Patches are also big they report – and we’re certainly not going to argue!  We’re seeing this trend play out in the collections of many designers – like Hannah Banana, Malibu Sugar and Mia New York, to name just a few.  Check it out:

This Hannah Banana dress is a Tweed A-Line – with pockets!!  It combines the traditional vibe of tweed with the up-to-the-moment style of owls, rockets and other fun patches.

Mia New York’s Happy Face Shag Sweater is sure to be a favorite! (I wish it came in my size!) We paired it with a pair of  Terez Kids’ Leggings featuring foil stars.

She won’t have to wear her heart on her sleeve when she has the colorful heart on this Malibu Sugar Striped Heart Sweatshirt front and center!  

2 - The style gurus at the Today Show also reported that fashion-conscious girls will be heading back to school wearing the latest athleisure looks.  This sporty trend shows no signs of slowing down, they say. Some of our designers – like Terez Kids Leggings and Malibu Sugar,  have found really fun and interesting ways in their back-to-school looks.

These Terez Kids Leggings with Side Straps will take her straight to the winner’s circle.  The detailing is awesome – in addition to the straps, the cool navy hue is overlaid with our favorite faux heathered technique.

Terez Racerback Tank

What looks great with Terez Kids Leggings? A black racerback tank from Terez, of course!

Malibu Sugar Rainbow Joggers

Malibu Sugar combines the sporty trend with colorful rainbow stripes for those racing to the front of the style pack!  

3 - And speaking of stripes… the Today Show identified stripes and beautiful bright colors as another one of the biggest back-to-school style trends.

Mia New York’s Button Up Track Pants double up on style trends.  Stripes and athleisure are just a natural winner.

Terez Kids Leggings with Rainbow Crystals are wonderfully colorful in a completely contemporary way.

Terez Kids Leggings with this LOL Tie Dye print will have everyone smiling.

4 - Last but certainly not least on the list of the top children’s style trends from the Today Show is one we really love. “It's all about embracing your spirit animal this year!” they report.

Me and Kay

This Hannah Banana Dress brings a fantasy of fanciful dragonflies and show horses to life against a backdrop of stardust and shooting stars.

Me and Kay

Tutu Du Monde’s Dragon Fly Romper offers a delightfully different take on the trend. The cotton romper also features frills, which are also maintaining their style prominence.

When it comes to critters, you can’t get much cuter than the unicorns on these Terez Kids Leggings!

Me and Kay

If you have a little dog lover, she’ll love these Malibu Sugar Puppies & Sweets Leggings.

Me and Kay

Unicorns, as we mentioned, are about as cute as you can get – but your magical creature jumps to the top of the class with this Malibu Sugar Unicorn Headband.

Me and Kay

These Malibu Sugar Unicorn Princess Leggings are another great example of a look that earns extra style credit. In addition to cute critters in the form of unicorns, they get a perfect score with stripes!
