August 18, 2017 in Appaman News, Appaman Style, In the news, Press, Star Style

We are so excited here at Appaman to drop our amazing winter line next week. So, we thought we’d do a PRESS ROUND UP of all the places you might have seen Appaman’s  FW17 line out and about.

RACKED 

We got a shout out in one of our favorite fashion blogs, RACKED, in an article on shopping for fun and unique Kid’s clothing. It turns out that Anica John, CEO of Kid Things is a huge Appaman fan! She comments:

 “I knew that I needed to get some brands that do boys’ clothes really well so it would be fun to shop for them.” She cites brands like Appaman and Andy + Evan as ones that carry more imaginative boys’ looks.”

 

APPAMAN IN PARENTS MAGAZINE: FIRST DAY OF SCHOOL FEATURE

From boys flannel shirts and chunky cardigans to houndstooth coats and denim jeggings for girls, we’ve got their wardrobe covered this fall and winter. These are looks they’ll never grow tired of–and will make them feel like a little adult.

Fall Fashion Alert: Stylish Pants for Kids

See Ya Later Shorts!
Shorts season is coming to a close. As much as we love shorts and all they represent (ice cream! cannonballs! catching fireflies!), we also look forward to the onset of long pants season and all of the fall festivities (apple picking! leaf peeping! jack-o-lanterns!). But one of the biggest differences between shorts and pants, besides the obvious weather appropriateness of each style, is the fact that you actually have to pay attention to length when it comes to wearing pants. Shorts can fall right above the knee, at the knee or below it and you’re still ok. But with pants, if they’re too short, you get major style points deducted from your look (floods, anyone?). Sending them back to school in pants that are too short are a style sin, mom! The perfect pant length is about 1/4-1/2 inch above the floor, depending on the type of shoes you’re wearing. But one thing’s for sure, unless you’re sporting summertime capris, ankle length is so not cool.

Pants for Every Style | Appaman

Pants-a-palozza: There’s a Pair for Every Style
Does your little dude prefer slouchy sweats to skinny jeans? Or maybe he’s a classic flat front chino kind of guy. Is she a jeggings kind of girl or a denim diva? Whatever their style, we’ve got them covered from waist to toe this fall.

Fall Pants for Boys
Our Bushwick Pants are classic chinos with a fashionable tapered fit and a flat front. We made them in some cool colors this fall, including Dress Blues and Gunmetal. Also on tap are our Skinny Twill Pants, which are a street style alternative to jeans. With a hint of stretch and cool slim cut leg, these pants will take him from the hallways to the holidays in style. Bringing some rocker ‘tude to the party is our Hiro Pant, a slouchy fitting pant with some serious punky cool and our Parker Sweats, black and white sweatpants with three zippers and and an edgy style.

Girls Pants for Fall
For all the little ladies in the house, you can’t go wrong with a pair of cute leggings for fall. Our Shiny Legging is both glam and comfy rolled up into one easy to wear pair of leggings. We love how the shiny coating makes even a simple t-shirt look rocker chic. The Denim Knit Jegging is a classic vintage-inspired pair of slim fitting jeans with a cool distressed look and a comfy fit she won’t want to take off. Our Finley Knit Denim pant is a cool printed take on everyday jeans, with a funky pattern and soft and cozy knit material. Think of our Pipe Pant in a glitzy metallic gold as a new neutral. The flashy (in a good way) pants have a add a splash of glam to grays, whites and blacks.

Go Back to School in Style with Appaman
Don’t worry, we know there are still lots more beach days left to take advantage of this summer, but August always marks the end of vacation time and the start of back to school season. In fact, some states go back to school way before Labor Day (sorry guys)! With the first day of school around the corner, we’re thrilled to give a first look at our new fall clothing for kids. Packed with cute tops for girls, fall jackets for boys and girls, long sleeved tees and cool hoodies for boys, our fall all-star trends are on point for back to school.

Boys Back to School Outfits | Appaman

Back to School Style for Boys
Our boys fall collection is loaded with easy to wear layering pieces that will make the transition from summer to fall seamless. Our Downtown Hoodie is the piece he’ll reach for over and over again. The cool lightening bolt design and super soft and slouchy style will be his go-to sweatshirt for the first days of school and through the whole season. The Prescott Cardigan is not your average cardi! With its bright colorblock sleeve for a pop of style makes it the perfect layering piece over a tee or shirt. The Camden Shirt, a classic and cozy henley style with a faux layered look, is the must-have boys shirt for back to school.

Girls Back to School Outfits | Appaman

Back to School Style for Girls
Girls will rule the hallways this fall in the Ryder Varsity Jacket, an old school-style collegiate varsity jacket with chic rose gold sleeves and trim. Our advice? Snap up this one quickly, we have a feeling it’s not going to last (a la our faux fur jacket). Another standout fall jacket for girls is the Ari Reversible Vest, with a shearling-esque fleece on one side and cool gold polka dots on the other. The Sterling Dress with contrasting texture is a casual girls dress she can wear to school or to a party and feel like a mini fashionista. Also earning all star status this fall is the Zoey Dress, a sassy and casual jersey dress with a faux-layered sweatshirt top and a handkerchief-hem skirt.

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.

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.

trex hat by appaman

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.
