Why does it always feel that within a blink of an eye, summer is over and school is back in session? If only summer could last just a little bit longer. Now that the end of summer is near, it’s time to start shopping for Back to School essentials from clothing to school supplies. With fashion trends ever so changing, here are some top back to school fashion trends for 2021 and they can all be found at

90’s Vibes

Vintage clothes styles from the 90’s are the hottest trend right now. Parents everywhere are probably cringing at the mom shorts, baggy jeans, etc. but the kids are digging it. Especially the cool graphic tees from childhood favorite shows such as Hey, Arnold, Rugrats and more.

Athletic Wear

Stay cool and causal all day long in your favorite leisure wear from brands like adidas, Champion and more. Dress it up a bit with some jewelry and boots or wear it casually with some sneakers. 


Pair your favorite tie-dye shirt with just about anything from jeans, skirts, shorts or slacks. It’s a great way to get creative and mix and match pieces together. If you don’t have a tie-dye shirt you can always DIY your own using a Tie-Dye Kit.

Bright Basics

No need to get fancy for the first day of school. Basic pieces, preferably bright colors are where it’s at. Pair a simple bright basic tee with a pair of jeans along with a colorful simple cardigan over top. Add your favorite sneakers or shoes and you’re set to go!

Denim, Denim & More Denim

That’s right, lots of denim this year! Denim on Demin is a hot fashion trend this year. Pair your favorite jeans with a jean jacket, vest, etc. so you’re completely covered in denim from head to toe. Feel free to mix and match the denim washes for a fun fashion trend.

And don’t forget the school supplies! Zulily carries all the essentials the kids need for the first day of school from backpacks, lunch boxes, pens, pencils and more. The great thing about Zulily is that you can get all of it in one place without leaving the house. Happy Shopping!
