4. Cozy Knits

This fall is all about being cozy in knits. Oversized knits over a fun pair of printed leggings for the girls, or rugby sweaters are perfect for the boys. Cardigans are also a classic for girls and a must-have when heading out for recess on chilly days.

5. Perfectly Fitted Plaid

Kids are mad for plaid. Plaid shirts and skirts a fun way to mix in a print this fall and keep the kids warm for those visits to the apple orchards and pumpkin patches. Plaid also has an all American and western warmth to it, which makes it a classic. If your child wears a uniform, then plaid may already be apart of their fall wardrobe.
