It’s back-to-school season, football season begins and new fall trends start to emerge.
We sat down with our buyers in men’s, women’s and youth apparel to see what is hot in our stores this month. Check it out and let us know what you are most excited for in the comments!
An essential piece for back to school is a backpack. Whether you are carrying a pencil box or laptop, something equally important to every age is compartments. We have sorted through the best of the best and the packs below are our top three choices for maximizing space.
A popular mountaineering silhouette, the Herschel Little America™ backpack elevates an iconic style with modern functionality.
Completely redesigned to organize your electronics and simplify your life on-the-go, the 31-liter women-specific Surge backpack, by The North Face, is constructed of hyper-durable ballistics nylon and crafted with a padded haul handle on the exterior. It features a front organizational compartment, a larger main compartment and a 15″ laptop compartment that zips completely open and lays flat to meet TSA requirements. Fleece-lined pockets include a tablet sleeve, media pocket and a sunglasses pocket.
UA Storm technology delivers an element-battling, highly water-resistant finish. The Under Armour Hustle 3.0 backpack features a soft lined laptop sleeve, a laundry/shoe pocket placed at the bottom of the bag and water-repellant front pockets to keep your items dry and safe.
3 Key Trends To Watch
Every fall, there are key trends to watch and wear. Our buyers hit the road to see what these trends were and how we can bring them to you. This season brings on a new color palette to work into your wardrobe along with our favorite accessory, boots! The key fall trends to know are below.
1. Mustard Yellow
This color seems to make an appearance every fall. However, this year it is being introduced in new ways. These are the items you can easily incorporate into your closet to hit this trend.
You don’t need to wear this color head to toe to be on trend. Adding it in here and there can be just enough to show you are trendy but also like to stay true to your own style. Vests are a must-have for fall so it is only fitting we cater to this. This Columbia vest is flannel lined (our favorite detail) and is warm enough to wear later in the fall without needing a jacket. Pair with a dark rinse denim and long sleeve top.
They say nothing is perfect. But the soft, livable comfort of the Synchilla Snap-T Pullover sure comes close. Made to exceptionally high standards from double-faced 100% polyester fleece, the warm and easy-care pullover traps body heat, holds off light wind and resists abrasion. Any jean or relaxed fit pant will look great paired with it.
Dress your little worker in this washed bib overall. It has double knees with cleanout bottoms. Made of 9-ounce, 100% cotton duck, it also features an adjustable shoulder strap with bib pocket and mock fly. This will be sure to keep him warm.
Your first Snap-T is practically a rite of passage. From there, you move onto San Juan floats and Beehive Basin hikes. Made from lightweight, warm double-faced polyester fleece, this girls’ pullover features classic Snap-T styling, including a nylon-flapped pocket at the left chest.
2. White Sneakers
White shoes are no longer limited to special occasions. The white sneaker has made its way back into the limelight. Quick tip: use nail polish remover to clean your shoes if the stain can not be wiped off with a damp towel or rag. Keep those white kicks truly white!
A fresh take on a Sperry classic, the Crest Vibe is back for another season of adventures with premium canvas, novelty materials and all the comfort and grip you want in a seaworthy sneaker.
Exceptional comfort, inspired design. These shoes embrace your feet with a sock-like knit upper. Outsole cutouts flash a peek at the cloudfoam cushioning that delivers unmatched comfort.
This Men’s Nike shoe gives you that legendary Air Max comfort in a slim, streamlined design. Crafted with a mesh upper for lightweight breathability, it features no-sew overlays for a speedy, sport-tech look.
Boys’ Nike PG 1 Pre-School shoe is Paul George’s first signature shoe scaled down for growing feet. It features Flywire cables integrated with a forefoot strap for dynamic lateral support.
Flannel normally rules the road when it comes to fall attire but this year plaid is taking over. What’s the difference, you ask? Plaid is a pattern whereas flannel is a fabric.
The Highflier Jacket is loaded with features including six pockets, waterproof shell fabric and just the right amount of insulation to provide protection and warmth.
Tasteful prints in a stain-and-rain-shedding, wind-cutting fabric with a soft fleece lining keeps them cozy during activity in the outdoors without sacrificing in the cute department.
