It’s that time of year again – when the kids are going back to school and summer already feels like a distant memory.
Whether you’re sad to see your little ones go, or are counting down the days (we know you miss those daytime impromptu shopping trips), you’ll no doubt be thinking about what they’re going to wear and all the things you need to buy to make their new school term run smoothly.
Luckily at Kids Cavern, we know how the right styles can make back-to-school shopping much more fun. We’re excited about our new range of kids back-to-school clothes, from dependable coats and jackets, to stylish school bags, to smart and practical designer school shoes.
With brands like Gucci, Lelli Kelly, Hugo Boss, Fendi, Moncler, Timberland, DSquared2 and more, you’ll be able to choose a school uniform that’s stylish as well as functional, making the start of a new term a little less scary.
Your Back to School Checklist
Have you got everything your kids need for the new term ahead? Your school may provide its own recommendations, but we’ve listed the basics here below.
- School coat (warm, durable and preferably waterproof, ready for the Autumn/Winter weather)
- School shoes (smart, comfy and of course must be durable!)
- School socks/tights
- Woolly hat, gloves & scarf (for when that winter chill kicks in)
- School bag (easy to carry and with enough room for all their classroom essentials)
- Gym bag (lightweight and roomy for their sports kit or swim clothes)
- Lunch box or bag
- Reusable water bottle or flask
- Pencil case or tin
- Handwriting pens (black or blue; don’t forget the spares!)
- Coloured pens/pencils
- Ruler, eraser & sharpener
- Planner or journal (if your kids’ school doesn’t already provide one)
Kids Back to School Clothes – Our Picks
Looking for some inspiration when choosing your kids’ back to school wardrobe? Here are some of the pieces we’re definitely crushing on…
School Coats & Jackets
This Le Chic navy ruffle coat is a lovely addition to any school uniform (also available in grey). Made with a cosy polyester filling and fleecy lining, it’ll keep your girl warm and toasty and the faux fur collar is conveniently detachable.
Also a favourite is this girls pink padded coat from A Dee. It features a warm fleecy lining and adorable heart stitched detail on the front, all finished with a comfortable tie waist and diamante zip detail.
In those early weeks, a light waterproof cover might be all she needs. In that case we recommend the Billieblush glittery rain cape which, with transparent all-over glitter detail and colourful striped trimming, will really add some sparkle into her day.
For boys, this Boss navy puffer jacket has been increasingly popular. Designed with Thermolite Ecomode insulation, it’s warm with a soft lining, front zip fastening and hood. It’s even made from 100% recycled resources, adding an extra feel-good factor!
Meanwhile, the Moncler Enfant black ‘New Maya’ coat is also a great option, with down padding, reliable polyamide outer, a front zip fastening and Moncler branding to arm.
Finally, we love this Timberland navy puffer jacket, which comes with a handy detachable hood, fleece-lined collar and the Timberland signature logo on chest.
Designer School Shoes
We’ve got a fabulous range of trendy back-to-school shoes your little ones will love.
These Melissa & Vivienne Westwood black orb jelly shoes will be the envy of all her friends, made of soft PVC with the iconic Vivienne Westwood orb logo to front. We also love these Lelli Kelly black patent unicorn shoes, which feature cute sparkling unicorn buckle straps and two additional straps that are interchangeable.
Boys will be more than comfortable in these soft leather black Kickers ‘Kick Lo’ shoes, which come with a comfy sole, easy-to-fasten Velcro straps and the iconic Kickers branding on each shoe. Alternatively, you can choose the Kickers ‘Kick Scuff’ shoes, also made of leather with a single velcro strap.
Kids School Bags
When it comes to back-to-school bags and backpacks, getting something that’s both stylish and fit for purpose can be tricky. We’re confident though that our fantastic range will have them itching to go back to school!
New in, this Gucci beige ‘GG’ ranch backpack is simply stunning. With the signature Gucci print all over and rainbow branding to front, it offers a roomy main compartment with additional front zip pocket for all his or her essentials.
Meanwhile this beige Burberry backpack is great for his first day back, boasting the iconic Burberry check design and even doubling up as a cool belt bag! We also love this black Dolce & Gabbana neoprene backpack, which is fantastically resistant against spills and splashes and looks super sleek, with stylish leather trims and embossed D&G logo to front.
Boys will no doubt love this black Balmain branded backpack, which comes with additional zip compartment, double zip fastening and adjustable straps.
