Appaman Kids Style October Fashion

October Fashion Essentials for Kids
It’s October! That means it’s time to take another look at what your kids need in their wardrobes. The air is getting chillier and winter is getting closer! Fall kids clothing is all about adding layers on top and investing in warmer pieces they can wear into winter.  From sweatpants that are anything but sloppy to slouchy hats and snuggly coats, here are the best kids style ideas for the month of October and beyond.

Olive Vest for Boys from Appaman

Invest in a Vest
Probably the best layering piece like ever, the Appaman East Side Vest in Warm Olive adds a warm outer layer to any look. We love the cool olive color for fall.

Appaman Baseball Henley

H is for Henley
Most of us think H is for Halloween this month, but think again! The Henley is the do it all fall layer for boys. The thinner fabric is perfect for wearing under a jacket or over another t-shirt. Kids love the Appaman Baseball Henley for its classic sporty look. Moms love it because it goes with everything.

Boys blazer from Appaman

Buy a Blazer
You’ll need a sharp blazer for all those times a hoodie just won’t cut it. The Appaman Techy Blazer is a workhorse of a wardrobe staple. It looks seriously sleek with jeans and a tee as it does when paired with suit pants for fancy schmancy occasions.

High Top Shoes

Give a High Five for High Tops
With his sandals stored away in the closet by now, it’s time to stock up on a pair of sturdier shoes for the fall and winter. The Varsity High Tops from our limited edition collection with Florsheim are the perfect sneaker/boot hybrid for this time of year. Plus they look super cool with both jeans and sweats.

Aj Pant appaman

Fall for a Pair of Cool & Comfy Pants
He needs a comfy pair of pants he can chill out in and still wear to school. The AJ Pant is the coolest pair of lounging pants he’ll own. Made with super soft French terry, they’re tapered in ever so slightly and slouchy in all the right places. Just don’t call them sweats.

Go for a Hat Trick
Just ask any West Coast hipster and they’ll tell you the ski hat has become a style statement all on its own. The Trex Hat in Clementine is the perfect accessory to wear when the weather starts to get chilly. We love the slouchy knit style with everything from flannels and sweaters in the fall to puffers and parkas in the winter.

Appaman Boys Suspenders

Get Suspended This Fall
The good kind of suspension that is! There’s something so cool about a pair of suspenders with a boys outfit. Whether they’re worn ska-boy style, over a long-sleeve tee shirt with high-wasted pants or traditionally with a suit and bowtie, suspenders will nail the look every time.

Dark Denim Jeans

Feel Blue
A good pair of jeans is a style must for fall and winter. Our Straight Leg Denim in Dark Wash have that perfectly worn-in look. We designed them to be soft yet sturdy (they’re made to get down and dirty) with classic 5-pocket styling. They’re simply the best boys jeans you’ll find.

Gotham Coat | Appaman

Go Undercover
You won’t have to fight him to get into his coat with our film noir-inspired Gotham Coat. He’ll feel like a stealthy detective in this rain-resistant, lightly insulated coat, perfect for fall and early winter weather.

Here, four of our favorite ways for kids to rock suspenders this fall.
