My son has been homeschooled up until now so we haven’t had to worry about clothing brands. He lives in graphic tees/shirts and shorts/jeans, typically from Target/Old Navy/Ross/Burlington. Not because we couldn’t afford better but why bother for a kid who doesn’t care & hangs out with other kids who similarly don’t care.
I attended public school myself but in an affluent town that presumably has similar demographics to the typical BS. There was a lot of bullying of kids who didn’t wear the “right” clothes. My folks could’ve afforded to buy me a better wardrobe but thought it was a superficial concern so they didn’t. I don’t want my son to have to worry about what his classmates think of his clothes, so I am planning on upgrading his wardrobe. Not designer stuff but we can definitely afford brands like Vineyard Vines, 7 for All Mankind, Diesel, Abercrombie & Fitch, etc. I just have no clue what’s considered fashionable with teens these days.
So what’s popular at your school?
