Back to School - Burlington Coat Factory

by - 8/13/2009

It’s hard to imagine but children, teens and college students will be headed back-to-school before you know it. With clothing trends changing day-by-day and prices soaring through the roof how do parents find the best deal for their dollar? That is where your neighborhood Burlington Coat Factory (BCF) and a local shopping expert come into play.

BCF recently issued its fall trend forecast for this year’s must-have back-to-school fashions. Pricing at BCF is typically up to seventy percent below department store prices and a layaway option is in place to make back-to-school shopping a breeze.

Some versatile pieces and styles parents should be on the lookout for to help maximize their fashion budgets can be found below in addition to popular looks of the fall back-to-school season for junior high and high-school kids.
  • Boho: This updated and modern bohemian look replaces the bell bottoms and earthy looks from years past with destroyed skinny denim, folk-inspired fringe vests, shaggy faux fur vests and hobo fringe bags and shoes. The current times have brought back this trend but its new age focus is funky, edgy and light hearted. Burlington calls it Boho chic.
  • Moto: It won’t just be biker babes who are wearing motorcycle jackets. This is a great style to invest in because it’s so versatile. Teens can wear motorcycle jackets with everything from feminine dresses and skirts to wide leg trousers and skinny jeans. It’s perfect for the rock-n-roll punk princess.
  • Destroyed Denim – Not just a hole in the knee; the entire jean is shredded for an updated look.
  • Plaid: Not your grandpa's plaid. This revisited classic uses buffalo check and argyle patterns with fun, bright colors to make the look stand out. Classy and cool – check!

  • Graphic, Colorful Tees – boys have updated the graphic tee now with bright colors
  • Printed/Graphic wovens – button downs with edgy prints on the sleeves, back or chest.
