The end of summer is here and it is back to school shopping time! We went to our local Kohl’s store for all our back to school shopping needs because there is a style for everyone at Kohl’s.
Kohl’s back to school theme is Be Yourself.
Besides growing out of all of their clothes, my kids have outgrown last year’s styles too. They want the newest styles that convey who they are. Kohl’s is all about giving kids ways to express their individuality with confidence in great styles and brands kids love.
My kids are not big shoppers, except for when it comes to back to school shopping. I take my kids out shopping one-on-one so we can have a little bonding time while shopping (and so my kids don’t fight and get bored in their sibling’s department!)
Nike and Camouflage at Kohl’s
My son is all athletic when it comes to his style. He wears a lot of Nike brand clothing because he likes the styles and fit. He really likes the new Nike camouflage line, it incorporates his love of nature and sports.Camouflage use to be used only to conceal – and my son still loves hiding in the woods in his camouflage during hide and seek – but this season, you’ll find boys, girls, men, and women wearing camouflage as a stand out fashion piece. Expect to find camouflage in traditional form as well as in many colors and embellishments like this selection from Nike.
Star Wars at Kohl’s
In anticipation of Star Wars The Force Awakens, we were excited to see a fantastic presence of Star Wars apparel and more at Kohl’s. We found a couple must-have graphic tees and this clever Chewbacca hoodie.
Like I said, there is something for everyone at Kohl’s with many name brands to choose from. My son has always had to have one of the tees that comes with headphones. He tries to convince me it is for the shirt, not the headphones but I don’t mind. Kids need headphones for school anyway, so why not.
Name Brands at Kohl’s for Boys
And speaking of brands, kids mix and match brands all the time now. It’s not like when we were in school. Some popular boys brands at Kohl’s include: Levi’s, Nike, Adidas, Fila, Tony Hawk, Urban Pipeline, Carter’s, Chaps, DC Shoe Co, Disney, IZOD, and many more.
Sweet Styles for Girls
Last year, my daughter didn’t want anything with hearts, love, or horses on it. This year, she is the opposite! At Kohl’s, she can be herself because there are so many styles and graphic tees to choose from.
This season’s fashion trends include the western style with all the fringe, studs, suede , and boots. You don’t have to go head to toe western to wear this trend. Add a piece or two to you (or your child’s) wardrobe. My daughter has been all western since our return from a dude ranch this summer. She loves this Mudd horse scoop-neck tee with shorts, jeans,or skirts with her cowboy boots.
My daughter is in third grade, so she likes to wear more stylish shirts, not only tees. Hoodies are popping up everywhere in a number of styles and fabrics. It is a sought after style for kids (and adults) and Kohl’s provides hoodies in short sleeves, long sleeves, and in a number of fabric choices and brands. This Self Esteem Embellished Graphic Hoodie is a rayon polyester mix for comfort and style with a stylish v-neck.
Back to School Shoes at Kohl’s
Kids feet grow quickly, stay on trend with proper fitted shoes at Kohl’s. Kohl’s has all the latest shoes from athletic and active to casual to dress. Choose from brands including Nike, Skechers, ASICS, Converse, Adidas, Apt. 9, Disney, DC Shoe Co, FILA, and many more.We started off with athletic shoes.
My son was on a mission to find sneakers with memory foam insoles. He’s already showing signs of having ‘problem feet’ like his father’s. Kohl’s had several to choose from, including the FILA® Romeo 2 Energized Men’s Running Shoes. My son actually has to shop the Men’s shoe department since he is a tall 5th grade boy with big feet. He chose the Black because of the cool color combination and style but also because of the Coolmax memory foam footbed. He said they feel amazing and he doesn’t want to take them off.
We also buy socks for the whole family at Kohl’s, especially the athletic socks!
Even though it wasn’t planned, my daughter also chose a FILA brand sneaker this year. The styles are eye-catching, aren’t they? She chose the FILA® Countdown Girls’ Running Shoe in the pink and purple combination. They are super comfortable and perfect for sports, playing on the playground, and as a fashion statement!
Backpacks at Kohl’s
Backpacks are very important to kids. They are more than just a way to transport homework, they make a statement about who you are. Be Yourself by choosing a backpack style that reflects interests and style.
My kids are past the character backpacks (sadly!) and onto sportier backpacks. My son picked out the adidas Capital 13-inch Tablet Sling Backpack. It is unique in that it is a cross body sling backpack, something my son has been wanting for a while now. It has a ton of pockets and compartments, even a padded sleeve for a tablet or laptop if your kid carries one. I was impressed by the LoadSpring shoulder strap that allows you to adjust with the backpack is heavy and full. It looks like a sturdy backpack that will last and last.
My daughter didn’t need a new backpack this season since it is excellent from last year.

You can also get your school uniforms at Kohl’s for kids and teens of all sizes.
