Fall 2022 Back-to-School Fashion Trends
Back-to-school trends are a combination of high fashion and popular culture and are fun to try out at any age.
Gen Z trends from 2022 are evolving into back-to-school fashion and the early 2000s are back. Fall 2022 back-to-school fashion trends include white sneakers, oversized tops, athletic wear, and wide leg pants.
Kids’ back-to-school fashion is similar to adult fashion trends, but with colors and pieces that are more kid-friendly.
- Trendy colors include olive green, coral, warm pink, terra cotta, mustard yellow, burnt orange, and rust. Neutral colors like creams, browns, and whites tie an outfit together.
- 2022 kids’ back-to-school fashion trends include layering, oversize, prints and textures, teddy bear jumpers, fun skirts, and jeans.
- Layer items with a base layer, warmth layer, and weather-proof layer.
Junior high students can wear a more adult version of fall 2022 fashion.
