It’s time for long days of swimming, popsicle-eating, and general leisure. While your kids are relaxing into summer mode, it’s never too early to start thinking about their upcoming school year wardrobe—especially if their district requires uniforms. And unlike last year, this year is all about your kid being ready with all things necessary. Backpacks, lunch boxes, and school supplies (with loads of hand sanitizers) are back! At JCPenney, we bring you back to school essentials in one place to make things easy and a few recommendations on how to build an affordable school uniforms wardrobe that will last.
Your Guide to Buying School Uniform
New to the uniform game? Worry not. when shopping for school uniforms, parents should buy a week’s supply of clothing. This means about five tops and three to four bottoms. It’s important that you check your school district’s uniform requirements to ensure you’re buying the right styles—short sleeves, long sleeves, length of shorts or skirts, shoes, etc. Be sure to add a couple of lightweight cardigans for layering in the spring and fall. When it comes to colors, it’s always a good idea to purchase three white shirts along with a couple of your school’s alternative colors.
If you’re looking for a smooth transition back to school, it comes down to having essential supplies for each grade. Nab some electronics and help them keep their school projects on track with academic calendars or journals. It’s easier to remember and helps to write down assignments and due dates. Behead of the curve by shopping for lunch bags. Lunchtime is fun time! The kiddos are headed back to school and ready to take on the year. Send them back with the perfect lunch bag. Whether they love high on style lunch bags with fun patterns or your little one seeks a Frozen lunch bag. We have it all.
