As your young man gets ready to head back to school, his wardrobe might be the last thing he’s thinking about. Or he might be into the latest fashion trends for boys and be one stylish dude.
Either way, it’s likely that last year’s clothes have either been worn out or outgrown. So whether your son loves it or hates it, back to school shopping is something that must be done. Luckily, there are so many trendy clothes that make this an enjoyable (at least for mom!) time to shop.

Here are a few of this season’s must-haves.
Thankfully your son’s bright clothing from the summer can be converted into fall wear, which means a savings for you. From t-shirts in bold colors to shoes with spunk, these will all still be wearable when school starts back up.
Grab a few pairs of fall items such as red jeans or a royal blue denim jacket to make any otherwise neutral outfit pop. And with blue jeans, you can’t go wrong as they go with every color, including the bright ones.
Vests are a great option for boys, both young and old when there’s a need to dress up. They can be worn with a dressy shirt and tie or bowtie, as well as a patterned t-shirt in any color. You can even buy them in a t-shirt material in a solid color to wear on casual days.
Neckties are not the only way for boys to dress up anymore. Bowties are extremely fashionable for young men, and gentlemen of all ages are loving this current trend. They can be pricey but there are also affordable options, many of them online, where you’ll find bowties for your school-age child. Whether he already owns some or wants to start or expand his collection, bowties are a fun way to spruce up an outfit and show your personality.

Anything Star Wars
The past year has been filled with anything and everything to do with Star Wars. I’m sure this fall this trend will continue, and your son is likely to want at least one Star Wars item in his wardrobe, if he doesn’t have one already.
T-shirts are probably the most popular, but aren’t the only Star Wars licensed item available. You can get everything from hats and sweatshirts to socks and underwear in your guy’s favorite movie character.

Layering is a great fall trend that consistently comes back into style year after year (especially when you live in a place like Oregon like we do). When the days can go from warm to cold (and for us, wet) within a short period of time, it’s nice for your son to have enough layers to adjust his temperature (plus it’s also a great way to get more mileage out of his summer clothing…another win for your budget!).
It’s as easy as pulling on a sweater or wearing a sweatshirt over his current outfit and he’ll be set for the slowly lowering temperatures.
Utilizing these back to school fashion trends for boys, you’ll send your son back to school looking good! With both comfort and style in mind, these fall fashion tips will help you find what you need without breaking the bank.
