Back to School Style Guide for Your Preschooler

by Totspot Team

It’s here. We said hello to summer seemingly just a few weeks ago, and now we’re greeting a brand new school year. When you have a preschooler, this isn’t back to school – it’s new to school. And that means the first day’s outfit is really special.

Our kiddos have such personality from the get-go. It’s amazing how she refuses to wear pink (or pants), or how he knows that Crocs are the only things he wants on his feet. Whether you have a mini hipster or a nature lover on your hands, chances are, they’re going to want to reflect that. Here are a few of our favorite looks to help you drop off your LO in style – their style.

Your Rising Hipster. She paves her own path, and he does things his own way – for better or for worse, your kiddo loves to go against the mold any chance he or she gets. Chances are, you have a tiny hipster on your hands, for that, we suggest a pair of adorable harems and beyond.

Your Little Athlete. The great outdoors are, well, great. But you know what makes them better? Soccer balls, basketballs, even a classic rubber bouncy ball. If your LO would nod his or her head in agreement, chances are sports are your kid’s passion.
