Hapoienu says students should have one great statement piece and they can make three or four outfits for it.

She says ladies can’t go wrong with a denim skirt.  Message shirts and metallics are also trendy.

Hapoienu says athletic wear is just what the younger boys are looking for.  She recommends a slim fit pair of checkered pants for boys.

She says the leather coat and the jean jacket are great for everyone.

Hapoienu says cowboy boots and white sneakers are also trendy.

She wants to remind parents not to buy their kids’ entire wardrobe at once, because sales will continue online and in stores over the next few weeks.
