With back-to-school buying in full swing, what’s a retailer to feature that might catch the eye of a kid? According to Cotton Incorporated, the season’s hot colors are traditional fall colors from nature plus blue, primary red and orange.
As for fabrics, boys favor military styles in moleskin and corduroy. Girls like crocheted items.
Teen boys lean toward button-down lumberjack shirts and updated hoodies. Teen girls wear skirts and dresses of all lengths. They prefer slim fit and carrot-leg (slim fit) trousers, suspenders and belts, boleros and A-symmetrical wraps.
Elementary-school boys go preppie in double-breasted jackets, slim sweater vests and narrow leg jeans; elementary-age girls don cuffed shorts with tights; sailor-style pants and A-line dresses.
There you have it; pull it off your racks and feature it prominently.
