No matter your son's personality, he's going to want to express himself and make an impression on the first day back to school. We put together 7 outfit ideas for the boys in your life that will fit whatever his style may be -- athletic, trendy, or somewhere in between!
1. Throwback 90s Style
Layering this red plaid flannel over a comfy, worn-in looking tee is not only a great way to carry your son's summer tees into fall, but it makes for a fantastic pulled-together look, reminiscent of 90s grunge. Think of it as preppy grunge! It's the garage band, without the greasy hair.

3. "I'm with the band"
Looking like he stepped right off the tour bus, he can tell his friends he spent the summer as a roadie with the local rock band. This shirt features a motorcycle vest print (all the style, none of the discomfort!), layered sleeves, and a wristband detail on the cuff. We've paired it with premium moto joggers by Rowen Christian for the ultimate rock-star look!

4. Rhythm & Blues
Speaking of rock & roll - take a tamer approach with this monochrome blue denim look, popped with a red chambray bow tie. He can look buttoned-up (literally!) while still rocking out. These Rowen Christian premium hipster jeans even have a tiny pocket for his guitar pick!

5. The Peace Lover
Maybe promoting love, happiness, and world peace is more your guy's style. We couldn't applaud that more! As the venerable Jackie DeShannon sings, "What the world needs now, is love, sweet love." This "Imagine" peace hoodie is just the ticket for that state of mind. Pair with these premium straight leg jeans, and he's got a stylish and clean-cut look while still feeling comfortable.

6. So Spaced Out
Guys, it's still hot out - shorts and a t-shirt are the perfect choice for going back to school in July or August. Try out this spaced out tee that blends his love for science AND sports. Plus -- it glows in the dark. How cool is that? The lightweight knit shorts pair nicely, and will keep him cool at recess or in gym class.
