Back To School Trends For Toddlers

Ask any parent – it’s never too early to start planning for back to school. From avoiding the last-minute mad dash for much needed essential supplies to slowly changing the wake-sleep cycle, the sooner you start – the better it will be for everyone.

School supplies don’t have to be boring! Bold colors and exciting patterns of the accessories will encourage your youngster to use them – and more use equals more learning.

  • Bookbags generally aren’t a necessity until first or second grade, but investing in a pint-sized backpack for carrying lunch and snacks, as well as a change of clothes and any incidental supplies needed, will get your little scholar familiar with bookbags and keep everything organized. Don’t forget to pick up a small pencil pack for all those smaller accessories.
  • Chunky pencils are necessary for little fingers learning to write. If you cannot find them, then grab a few grips and slip them over standard No2 pencils. Don’t forget colored pencils, too.
  • Art supplies are essential for your little Picasso. Consider standard or jumbo crayons, washable markers, and non-toxic glue sticks. A homemade smock made from one of mom or dad’s tee shirts is an economical alternative to a purchased smock to protect clothing during messy crafts – and can be a ton of fun decorating it together!

Hitting the halls and being both comfortable and fashionable is a boost to any student’s confidence – and your little scholar is no different.

  • For the girls, bright colors are the start and the end-all of the youngster fashion color pallet. Alternating loud patterns and reserved solids for tanks or short-sleeved tops and shorts, skirts, or legging bottoms will have your little fashionista in style for the whole school year.
  • For your little man, the layered look of oxford shirts and vests or cardigans are trending once again. Plaid patterns are making a comeback again this year – with just the right amount of fashion and durability to be a must-have in every wardrobe.
  • For the youngest, keep it simple and comfortable with denim or khaki shorts or pants, and the lighweight cotton shirts.
  • We would be remiss if we didn’t point out that shoes bring an outfit together. Hand crafted from 100% genuine American leather, our moccasins are the perfect shoe for the classroom and the playground. For an extra splash of fun, check out our new Tell Me A Story collection. Back to school fashion has never been so easy!

Just like with fashion, there are a couple back-to-school fashion indiscretions you want to avoid.

  • Always keep a change of clothes in your child’s pack. Life – usually in the form of mud puddles – happens to our little adventurers, and it's best to be prepared.
  • If you send your little one with an electronic device, make sure the games are not interfering with learning. Some hand-held or online games can be a wonderful game during home time, but can be a distraction during school hours.
  • Remember to keep the fashion comfortable. Little ones want to fit in just like their big sisters and brothers, but keep in mind that play and nap time and steer more towards durable materials and relaxed fits.

Solid and early planning ensures a good base for the most successful school year possible.

  • Baby Talk: It’s the moment you’ve been waiting for— your precious cherub’s first words! In this sophisticated design, we’ve recreated those words that have captured your heart. A fresh cotton white background, a prismatic rainbow of colors, and a playful font brings all the memorable first words to life in a sassy fashion statement that’s sure to go hand in heart with anything. Pair these with simple denim and a flowy top, or throw in a pop of color that matches the moccs!
  • Game Time: There’s no whistle on this play. Alternating black and white stripes pulled right from the referee’s jersey are finished off with a neat and trim grassy green cuff. The varying thickness of stripes catches your eye and draws you right into the action. Keep these mismatched moccs a focal point by pairing them with neutral cotton basics and onesies, or accentuate the fringe with a matching green headband.
  • Hear Me Roar: Bring out the wild in your little animal with this fun tiger print! Available in hot pink or tangerine orange, the right-side mocc features a playful tiger face and stripes, and the left has a voice bubble with “Roar” across the top. These playful moccasins have a fringed cuff with alternating colored and black stripes. These shoes will instantly ignite your wild thing, so pair it with a romper for playtime and try dressing it up with a denim top for occasions.
  • I Heart You: Mi amore, these moccs have stolen our hearts! Bold primary colors put on a show like no other as these moccs spell out “I Love You” across both little feet. Rich cobalt blue provides the backdrop for “I ♥ ” and “YOU” in multi-colors, and a red cuff and fringe bring it all together. Pair these color-block moccs with your cherub's favorite patterned dress or leggings or let them stand out with a solid, neutral outfit.
  • Banner Baby Blue Bunting: It’s a fashion parade under the big top — stylish stripes of sky and baby blue are wrapped across the back in solid color. The bright blue cuff is brought to life with the multi-colored triangle fringe, reminiscent of parties and carnivals. An eye-catching colorful toddler moccasin that’s sure to draw you in and capture the wonder of seeing the world through the eyes of your little cherub. Take the carnival inspiration and let your cherub match these moccs with big, bright colors, and all the frills they want!
  • Gallop for Scallops: Two choices for twice the fun! Our first are piano key classics ebony and ivory combination, polished to perfection. The forward is a black background sprinkled with delicate white polka dots, complimented by a full white ankle. The cuff is black, with the daintiest scalloped edge. Flip the coin for a sassy remake in contrasting hot pink and crimson red, with alternated scalloped cuffs. Whether a polished party or a fun playdate, this mocc has it all. Try these moccs all classed up with your favorite party dress — or try a co-ordinating color blocked outfit.

No matter your choice, all of our genuine leather moccasins are handmade to the highest standard of excellence, with an emphasis on sassy sophistication. We know you will love this new collection as much as we do!
