Back-to-school outfits set the tone for the year ahead. We partnered with GAP to make sure parents find the picks that help kids move forward with self-assured courage.

Those first days of a new school year are about moving forward, and feel exciting for their newness and sense of possibility. Still, it can be a nerve-racking time for even the most confident and outgoing kids. While we all know that "cool" is a state of mind, it doesn't hurt if your clothes reflect that in the new year — one where you're a little braver, a little kinder, and a little wiser. Scooping up statement tees, layerable separates, and fresh sneakers is a great way to set kids up for a successful and stylish new school year. This shopping guide, complete with full looks you can mix and match for your child's personality, will get them geared up and ready to go back.
