Kids Fashion Trends Borrowed from Mom

Kids Fall Fashion Trends | Appaman

Honey I shrunk the blazer! Fall’s top fashion trends are not just for grown-ups. The best kids fashion trends take a cue from what mom’s got in her closet. From glamorous faux fur and chic motorcycle jackets to skinny jeans and chambray shirts, there are some major fashion moments happening on the playgrounds this season. Here, a look at the best mini-me girls fashion trends stolen straight from mom.

Girls Black Blazer | Appaman

The Black Tuxedo Blazer
We are loving a crisp black blazer worn over a t-shirt and jeans or paired with a pretty dress.  There’s something so classic and chic about a tuxedo blazer for girls. This is one borrowed from the boys look that should be in every little girl–and grown-up–wardrobe.

Faux Fur Vest Girls | AppamanThe Faux Fur Vest
Everyday just got a whole lot more glamorous, thanks to this brown faux fur vest. It looks effortlessly cool when casually thrown over a long-sleeve tee and jeans and it’s a no-brainer for fancier nights out.

Girls Denim Shirt Appaman

The Denim Shirt
If there’s one wardrobe item that literally goes with everything, it’s a chambray shirt. It’s the perfect layer piece over t-shirts, tank tops and even dresses. Moms and their mini-mes will live in it all year round.

Appaman Girls Jeggings

The Denim Jegging
As an all-around live-in-them pair of jeans, the skinny denim jegging is a fashion favorite. Ours are a classic 5-pocket style constructed from super-soft and comfy French terry and with a cool distressed look.

Moto Jacket for Girls | Appaman

The Moto Jacket
Fashion trends may come and go, but you’ll never tire of a classic motorcycle jacket. Invest in one that will last for more than one season and wear it in the fall and spring. We love the faux fur collar and classic styling of the Appaman Moto Jacket.

Appaman Printed Jogger Pants for Girls

The Printed Jogger Pants 
Boho chic is one trend that always looks cool. A pair of slouchy pants in a bohemian-inspired print will take her far this season. We call it off-duty glam, she’ll call them the comfiest pants ever.

The Best DIY Halloween Costumes for Kids
Do you know what your little trick or treater is going to be for Halloween this year? We love the idea of a homemade kids Halloween costume using pieces from their wardrobe. We think of it as money well spent! Here, some of the best Halloween costume ideas for kids using pieces from Appaman’s fall clothing collection.

Homemade Halloween Costume Ideas
Break Dancer
Flashback to the ’80s with our Parker Sweats in Black. Thanks to the three zipper pockets and a stylish slouchy look, he can rock these cool sweatpants way after Halloween is over. The Uptown Denim jacket, a cool faux layered hoodie and denim look, is just at home in 2015 as it would on the streets of NYC in 1985. High top sneakers are a must-do for any legit breakdancing outfit. Add the Varsity High Tops to his Halloween look for kicks that will be super comfy and cool for trick or treating and beyond.

Tap Dancer
Tap dancer style is easy to create with some key wardrobe items she can wear all year round. The Appaman Tuxedo Blazer and Tuxedo Shorts are adorable on their own but when paired with an Appaman Logo Bow Tie, the look becomes total tap dancer.
