Plaid hoodie

Are your kids mad for plaid? They aren’t alone. From plaid skirts for girls to plaid Western shirts for boys, everything plaid is flying off the shelves. Try something a little different, like this Shaun White hoodie in blue plaid (Target, $19). Whether your boy is in kindergarten or high school, you can find the right size.

Animal prints

This fierce trend is popular for everyone from babies to teens. Look for leopard, zebra and other animal-print tops, dresses and accessories. You’ll adore this Cherokee girls’ dress with its 3/4-length sleeves, bow at the waist and fun leopard print (Target, $15). It will look cute with a pair of glossy ballet flats.
