(NC) Keeping up with back to school trends can be a task in itself. Add in your kids' ever-changing needs and it can seem nearly impossible to get everything you need on your list and stick on budget. Use these tips and stay ahead of the class.
1. Three times the fun:
The shirt over a dress trend has made a comeback, so get triple the use out of those summer dresses by pairing them with a fun top. Thankfully, the classic white tee is also on trend this year so the boys can look trendy and fresh for less.
2. Put a lid on it:
Whether you're taking the kids to soccer or out for some fun at the park, head gear is hot. This year baseball hats, bucket hats and fedoras have popped up everywhere. Let the kids pick out something with a fun cartoon or phrase on it that's school appropriate.
3. Makeup essentials:
Make back to school exciting with the trendiest looks. She'll love Shoppers Drug Mart's “My Makeup” notebook palettes and brush set. This limited-edition collection features five beautifully crafted Quo cosmetics brushes with custom coloured handles. This gorgeous set also comes with a cosmetic bag to store and help protect the brushes and makeup — perfect to carry in a backpack.
4. The backpack is back:
This year hide all those ugly (but useful) books, notes and lunches in something trendy. Let the kids go crazy this year with something metallic, patterned or covered in donuts with a bag they will use every day. The President's Choice Financial World Elite Mastercard also makes buying your back-to-school necessities and everyday essentials as easy as one-two-three.
