Although many educational institutions are still unsure about opening their doors to students this Fall, many have sided in favor of in-person classes. Students of all ages, from preschool to college, will be needing masks and stylish apparel for their return to school. We have the inside scoop on what is trending for Back-to-School 2020-2021.




Athleisure and activewear have exploded in recent months. Could this be due to an increase in people working and staying home, or due to an increase in the desire to get fit during quarantine? Maybe it is simply because these clothes are comfortable and slimming. No matter the reason, get this look with leggings, sweatpants, t-shirts, crop tops and hoodies. Whether you’re headed to work out or not, we have the on-the-go styles your students and customers crave!




Tie-dye is another trend that is even making its way into luxury and high fashion clothing lines. Stock-up on white t-shirts, tanks, shorts, and fleece to best feature your custom tie-dye designs. Not sure what to dye? No problem! Create a “Ready to Dye” or “Just Add Dye” apparel line consisting of white tees with simple designs to enhance the look of the apparel your customers will dye themselves. This not only adds a little extra fun for your crafty customers, but provides brand recognition when their creations are shared on social media. And making this trend to “dye” for!


Bright Basics


Accenting a neutral shaded outfit with a bright pop of color is a simple and easy way to add a little light in your life. In the dark and dreary time of quarantine, bright shades can be that fresh dose of sunshine to keep your customers positive. Neon basics are also a great way to stand out from the crowd and get noticed in the busy school hallways. Keep on shining with some bright basics!


Matching Tracksuit


What could be easier to wear and more comfortable than a matching tracksuit? Perfect for travel, fitness, just relaxing and everything in between. These tracksuits aren’t just for runners and track-stars anymore. Add some team spirit with a small left chest or large back printed or embroidered school logo. Once you slip into a tracksuit, you won’t want to wear anything else!


Oversized Sweatshirt


This trend is most notably credited to artist, Ariana Grande, but this look was quickly picked up by the fashion industry. Dress this look up or down with heels, boots or sneakers. The best part of this trend? Your customers can really let their accessories shine. Add a large back or a small left chest design to make this look unique.
