School is fast approaching and that means your kids are going to want and need new clothes. How do you know what to purchase that will please them, as well as your wallet? Here are a few handy guidelines to remember as you buy new kids clothing.

Layer for comfort, layer for style. Most areas of the United States are relatively still warm when school begins. However, the mornings may be slightly chilly when the kids are waiting at the bus stop. Your son or daughter can take advantage of the weather by layering their clothing. Make sure they have comfortable layers. Cotton tee shirts are breathable, versatile and come in a lot of different colors and styles. They also come in a variety of lengths, including short sleeve, three-quarter length and long sleeve. Pair it with lightweight capris or shorts and a nylon vest for a cool look that is functional and stylish.

Step it up! Shoes are always important to kids as they go back to school. Boys always want the latest sneakers for gym class and playing ball after school and girls seek out the latest ballet flats and sporty sneakers. Please them both when you purchase shoes with sturdy rubber soles and cushy heel support. Many shoe websites offer back-to-school savings and even free shipping. Take advantage of these deals as you stock up for the school year.

Accessorize and prioritize. Sturdy backpacks are not only key to your child's fashion sense but also for their safety. Ensure the backpack is sewn well and has padding and handles they can easily hold without a struggle. And with a vast amount of styles, shapes and colors, you are bound to find a bag perfect for your kids. Focusing on function and style will give your child the best of both worlds as the bag will be ergonomically sound and look fantastic, too!

By starting now and purchasing these school essentials you'll not only get your child prepared with ease, but you'll also be able to focus on finding the best deals around. Good luck!
