After a year of homeschooling my youngest son due to the pandemic, the thought of sending him back to school IN PERSON next month is so, so exciting. Not only is this exciting for me, but my son who is normally avoiding the thought of school at all costs, ha! A new sense of normalcy is emerging and we’re all ready for it. 

While I know that there will be some acclimation to this new normal by getting up earlier in the morning (we have definitely NOT been getting up on a regular schedule since quarantine) and getting into the groove of daily school life and homework, my family is ready to get back into the rhythm of school.

Another thing he’s excited about is getting out of his pajamas and sweatpants he’s been wearing since homeschooling and purchasing some fresh, new back-to-school clothing!

Top Back-to-School Clothing Trends for 2021

It’s funny how quickly my son’s style has changed since he attended school in person last year, even though we have all been guilty of staying in comfy clothes around the house most of the time. I mean, who hasn’t? 

He’s growing into a young man who certainly has his own unique, eccentric style that I just absolutely love and adore. I cannot wait to take him clothes shopping so that he can explore and own his personal look for the new school year. 

One of our favorite places to shop online for unique clothing is We can find pieces that we can’t find anywhere else, which makes their styles even more special!

In addition to having amazing clothing for kids, from retro vibes to new trends, Zulily is hosting a back-to-school contest, called the #UniquelyZu Contest that I just have to share with you.

From now through July 31, 202, six creative kids will be chosen to win a $6,000 prize package including a $5,000 financial reward to go towards their child’s education and a $1,000 shopping credit on Zulily to get them ready for Back-to-School based on their submitted designs. 

The contest calls on parents across the country to submit an Instagram post on behalf of their kids ages 5 – 14, reflecting their child’s unique sense of design and fashion.

There will also be a bonus opportunity for the parent and child to participate in a design session with Zulily, providing creative inspiration for an exclusive Zulily capsule collection to be launched in 2022 that will range from swimwear to back-to-school styles.
