There is a big nostalgic vibe to a lot of the coming up fall fashion trends for kids. Maybe this retro atmosphere is being strong by our memories of a simpler, safer time, when stylish kids were more concerned with their outfits than with their face masks. And yet, for every old-school outfit that is making a comeback (think Clueless plaids, vintage rock tees) there are new looks to inspire future fashion enthusiastic. Here is to brighter days ahead.

1. Color-Block Coats

Fluffy, warm, and rainbow bright colored, have soften the back-to-school days with a cuddly and beautifully colored outerwear.

2. Cruella Dots

Disney’s fashion style and dogs fantasia was such a success, that a sequel is in development as you read this. But while we wait to find out if Emma Stone will claim her role as the blunt Brit-punk baddie, these Dalmatian dog looks should hit the spot. (We even found dotted sneakers!)
