Outfit Game Changers
Shopping for a new school term strips all meaning from the phrase ‘retail therapy’. Gone are the days of an impromptu Saturday morning mani, fresh blow dry, or splurging on a new outfit for a weekend city break. Now we’re talking stationery, books, white shirts, and sensible shoes (who’d have thought?!) To avoid handing out the cash like it’s going out of fashion, we’re studying a whole new topic for the upcoming school year: accessories. Think hair bands, headphones, backpacks, and gingham frilled socks; wardrobe game changers without the killer cost? Maybe you can treat yourself after all...
The revival of the rucksack shows no signs of slowing down, and quite frankly, geek chic is something we can easily get on-board with. We know the little ‘uns will feel the same because anything that frees up their hands to maximise their selfie skills, is guaranteed to be a hit!
Adding fluffy additions to anything and everything is key to refreshing their accessory game. Pop a pom-pom charm on their school bag, or pick up a cap with its own furry ball of fun, from just £4.
Headphones are our new fave accessory. Not only do they serve the purpose of blaring Bieber (no judging here), they look real cool too. The kids can wear them out of school, and mum and dad can pinch them when they’re in school – bonus! The only problem? Trying to suppress the half wiggle-walk, on the way home from the school run, when Queen Bey comes on shuffle. Believe us, it’s not easy!
With the ‘little’ ones growing at the speed of light, and school trousers lasting less and less time every year (will they ever stop growing?!), it’s no secret the school years can be eye-wateringly expensive. Primark is on hand to allow you ‘rents space to breathe! The little things make all the difference, and our super-affordable kid’s accessories will have you skipping into the new term with no worries…
