Send them back in style! Cross County Center has everything you need for your one-stop Back to School shopping trip! With stores like Zara, H&M, Gap, Old Navy, Hollister&CO, Vans, Skechers and Ulta Beauty, there’s something for your teen, tween and everyone in between!
Some stylish trends to watch for include 2-piece matching sets, graphic tees with positive messages for kids and cargo pants (find all at H&M). Tween girls should be on the lookout for tiered dresses and stretch and beaded bracelets (shop Hollister&CO and Claire’s). Tween boys will want denim and athletic pants (Hollister&CO, American Eagle Outfitters and adidas). Teen style is big – as in oversized blazers, dresses, wide-legged pants and flannel for guys and girls (shop all at Zara). Don’t worry – comfortable clothes aren’t going anywhere – athleisure from stores like Express, aerie and Victoria’s Secret Pink are wardrobe must-haves.
