Exploring back-to-school autumn fashion can be so much fun. After the long summer holidays, little ones are bound to be excited to see all their friends again – think of all those play dates, after-school activities and birthday parties that will be filling their diaries in the coming weeks and months.
If they wear a school uniform during the day, that doesn't mean they can't express their own style. Whatever the uniform policy, items like bags, coats and trainers allow them to show their personality. To help get them ready for new adventures, check out these essentials from our back-to-school collection. Whatever their taste, we've got them covered.
Every student and intrepid explorer needs a good-quality backpack. This DKNY flap-closure backpack fits the bill perfectly, with an on-trend 90s look and elasticated side for all those bits and bobs.
