Best in Class: Back-to-School Clothes

School bells will be ringing soon, which means it’s time to start shopping for your kids’ back-to-school wardrobe. The Shops at Columbus Circle will make sure they have an A+ experience.


Head to Crewcuts at J.Crew, which caters to students with a sense of style. This season it’s all about layers and accessories — no matter your age. Dress up a pair of jeans with a colorful bejeweled top and a chic scarf for a look that will definitely get her noticed in the hallway. Everyone needs a backpack, and Crewcuts lets children express themselves with a range of bright colors and fanciful patterns (cat whiskers, monster googly eyes). Crewcuts also sells whimsical iron-on patches to personalize jeans jackets, hats, even notebooks.


If your little one wants to stand out, H&M is ground zero for statement-making fashions. For girls, there are sparkles everywhere, scattered across T-shirts, sweaters, dresses, and flouncy skirts. Start the school year off right with a shirt that’s decorated with butterflies and flowers and has a great piece of advice emblazoned on the front: “The adventure begins now: do what you love.” Boys will be looking like junior DJs in H&M’s designs for the season — think hoodies and skinny jeans.


Diesel is known for its rock-and-roll aesthetic, which translates to the kids’ line as well. You’ll find jeans in all styles and colors — black, blue, ripped, frayed — for both boys and girls. Diesel even sells a black leather jacket with zippers and buckles that looks like the kind your favorite rock icon wore.

A day of shopping will definitely work up an appetite. Stop for a bite to eat at Landmarc, recently named one of the most family-friendly restaurants in New York City by Open Table. Your kids will be wishing that the food in the school cafeteria was as good as this.
