What's Hot This Year For Kids

There’s nothing like those first weeks of school -- packed lunches, excited kids and brand new “school” clothes! We asked our favorite designers, trend forecasters and department stores for the best fashion advice for your kid’s big first day.

Emerald Green

Is it a belated Oz effect? This rich jewel tone will be hot for girls this fall, says Elina Furman, Publisher of A-List Mom, a website that tracks all the latest trends for moms and kids. You’ll see this deep evergreen shade in everything from tops, bottoms, coats and especially dresses. This might be the just-right shade for that holiday fancy dress -- Christmas festive and trendy to boot.
