It’s that time of year again – when all the kids are getting ready to go back to school. Which means it’s time to get acquainted with all of this year’s school trends so that your child can be the coolest kid in the class.
So what are this years back-to-school essentials? Well here are the most stylish trends of 2015 according to Pinterest:
1. Vintage Style Backpacks
This year’s must-have back-to-school essential is vintage backpacks. Forget Frozen and Batman, it’s all about the vintage-looking leather satchels and backpacks. Everyone knows the most important part of your back-to-school gear is the backpack!
2. Backpack fresheners
Why didn’t anyone think of backpack fresheners before now? These fresheners were made for nurseries but the savvy parents of Pinterest suggested that they’d be great for gym bags and backpacks too. Definitely one of your back-to-school essentials for teenage boys.
3. Pencil pouches
Pencil cases are so last year. Pencil pouches are this year’s stationary back-to-school essentials. Think colourful pouches with different pockets for all your pens and pencils.
4. Funky lunches
Forget sandwiches in cling film. This year it’s all about the compartment lunches with healthy and funky foods inside. Think nuts, fruits and wraps. No more cheese and ham! At least it makes it fun for kids to eat more healthy.
5. Combat boots
This year’s must-have back-to-school essentials for fashion are combat boots. Think big, clunky Dr Martens in a variety of colours. These can be quite pricey so you might want to opt for a pair of black ones first to fit in with your school uniform.
6. Homework stations
A homework station is a creative way to encourage your child to do their homework in a fun way. Make it colourful with lots of organisation. You might find your child is looking forward to their homework with this back-to-school essential!
7. Leaving cute lunch notes
It might be a bit embarrassing to find a note saying “I love you” from your mum in your lunch but secretly you’re going to feel all special. We especially like the notes written on bananas.
8. Arty notebooks
Forget boring notebooks, one of this year’s back-to-school essentials is arty notebooks. Think bright colours, geometric shapes and animals. You definitely want to have the coolest notebook in your class.
9. DIY stickers
Another of this year’s back-to-school trends are DIY stickers. All you need is a DIY sticker machine and you can make loads of stickers. Perfect for studying, behaviour charts and even for name stickers.
10. Funny t-shirts
If you don’t need to wear uniform to school then funny t-shirts are essential for your back-to-school wardrobe. Think puns on graphic t-shirts that will make all your teachers laugh.
