What's cool for back-to-school fashion?

We're answering that question this week and next, taking a look first at what many grade school and middle school students will be wearing when they make their way back to the classroom or, since this is still just August, when temperatures cool.

For boys, it's all about colored jeans, stripes, denim and layering. Preppy and Ivy League looks are making a comeback.

Girls will find plenty of choices with printed leggings and jeans, retro prints, bows, fake fur, denim, ruffles, oversized tops, vivid color, dots, stripes and Aztec patterns.

Lessons in denim and layering

Colored denim in shades of red, green and mustard get high marks this season, along with anything in Thunder blue, said Carolyn Goldman, owner of Uptown Kids at Classen Curve. And don't forget to layer on the tops. Jude wears Mayoral skinny pants, striped T-shirt, chambray shirt with elbow patches and Toms shoes from Uptown Kids.

Girl power

Jewel tones, colored skinny jeans, faux fur vests, ruffles and Bohemian styles allow for plenty of mixing and matching and having fun. Kaidence wears Mimi & Maggie long-sleeve T-shirt and sweater with Mayoral jeans, Yosi Samra ballet flats and a fun hair accessory from Uptown Kids.
