Back To School Fashion For Less From KMart

468px-Kmart-logo.jpg

 

If you have kids, you know that Back To School shopping can be BRUTAL!  As if it weren’t hard enough to find all of the supplies that teachers need without running to a hundred different places, throw in clothes shopping and it’s enough to make any parent throw their hands in the air and walk away.  I have been on the hunt for great clothes for my kids and the selection at KMart was wide enough that we were able to find something for all three kids in one trip…how awesome is that?!

KMartBoys.jpg

My sons are 12 and 14 and it can be harder to shop for them than my daughter!  Although they are still young, they are HUGE for their age and have been in men’s clothes for quite some time now.  It can definitely be a struggle finding things in men’s sizes that are still ‘cool’ enough that my sons are willing to wear them.  Thank goodness for KMart!  I was only able to find one outfit for each of the boys, but I have to tell you I was surprised I walked out with anything for them at all.

KMartBrayden.jpg

Brayden is starting middle school and wanted something that was still fun and fashionable for his first day.  We were able to find this awesome Marvel Deadpool Men’s Graphic T-Shirt and Basic Editions Men’s Relaxed Fit Jeans in medium wash to create an awesome ensemble that Brayden can’t wait to wear to school.  The Deadpool shirt is cut for a roomy fit — in case you also like to over-indulge in chimichangas like Deadpool.  This all-cotton tee offers the benefit of breathable jersey knit which is perfect for hot Arizona days.  The jeans are the only pair your son will need when the day calls for toughness.  Heaven knows, any middle schooler will put some wear and tear on jeans quickly.  Built from cotton denim, these pants offer durability and the straight leg adds roomy comfort.  The medium wash provides crisp, versatile style, while the contrast stitching enhances the authentic look.

KMartKenny.jpg

An outfit that my teenager loved so much he actually SMILED??  (GASP!!)  Be still my beating heart…thank you KMart!  This Men’s Transformers Decepticon Graphic T-Shirt and Basic Editions Men’s Relaxed Fit Jeans in lite wash pair together so well and Kenny is LOVING IT!  The Transformers shirt rocks a cool, modern look.  Decorated with the iconic image of a Decepticon, this short-sleeve tee rocks with retro style.  Featuring a crew neck and a roomy cut, this shirt offers the comfort of cotton-rich jersey knit, another perfect tee for hot Arizona days.  Just like the jeans Brayden got, the lite wash version is every bit just as durable and comfortable as it’s medium wash counterpart.

KMartGirls.jpg

My sons and my daughter are SO completely different.  Jade loved every single thing she saw at KMart and wanted to fill the whole cart up with it all!  I think her picks are fabulous and they look so good on her.

KMartJade2.jpg

This is Jade’s favorite outfit of the things that she picked out.  The Basic Editions Kitten Graphic T-Shirt and Route 66 Girls Bootcut Jeans in gray look so good together!  Now Jade can show off her awesome sense of humor in the comfy cotton-rich fit tee.  With a screen-print design of a cute kitten wearing sunglasses and a caption that reads, “#Selfie,” this short-sleeve shirt is sure to inspire laughs and smiles whenever she wears it.  Pair it with these adorable jeans and you’ve got an outfit that’s just too cute!

KMartJade3.jpg

Sporting the same jeans as above, this Leave A Little Sparkle Wherever You Go Graphic T-Shirt really pops!  Glam takes any girl’s fashion over the top with this glitter-print graphic T-shirt.  The sparkling design reads, “Leave a Little Sparkle Wherever You Go,” lending her casual style some inspiration.  A modern cut keeps this short-sleeve tee fitted, with a longer hem and a hint of flared shape.

KMartJade.jpg

This outfit is one of the cutest things I’ve seen all week.  The I’m Really A Mermaid Graphic T-Shirt and Route 66 Girls Skinny Bootcut Jeans pair together just perfectly.  Keep your little one showing off her casual chic style with this tee.  Styled with a glittery “I’m Really a Mermaid” design, this short-sleeve tee combines glam with jersey knit comfort.  The cap sleeves and drop tail hem bring her style up to date with modern shape, as does a cute keyhole cutout in back.  As if the shirt weren’t comfy enough, pairing it with these jeans makes it too comfortable to resist.  Your daughter will always be chic and relaxed when she wears these girls’ skinny bootcut jeans from Route 66.  Created to move with her, these pants offer a stretch design that makes playtime more enjoyable. These jeans offer a slim fit through the hip and thigh, ending in a bootcut opening, and an interior waistband adjusts the fit.

The thing that surprised me most about our trip to KMart (yes, even more so than my boys actually finding clothes they like) was the cost.  Can you believe that I got EVERYTHING on our shopping trip for only $72?!  That’s CRAZY cheap!  Thanks to KMart, our Back To School budget will stretch even farther while the kids look and feel great.  Head down to your local KMart for all of your Back To School shopping needs and see how much you can save!
