Boys & Girls' Back-to-School Wardrobes for Under $100!

Kids clothing can seem so amazingly cheap (slightly selfish admission: at least when compared to the stuff I buy for myself) that it's hard to stop yourself from buying piles and piles of it. But even if you're shopping at places like the Gap and Old Navy vs. say, Jacadi, it adds up—and fast. I don't know about you, but when I see cute eight dollar glitter t-shirts for my daughter at K-mart, it can be hard to not buy, you know, 10 of them.

Well, with the back-to-school season upon us, it's time to stop the madness and go for the kind of cute classics that will last (and work with everything else your kids already own).

So here's proof that you can rebuild your son's and daughter's school wardrobes, for under $100 total, with a mix of classics that they'll be able to wear over and over, plus a few statement pieces (how cute is that mustache necklace?) that will help them stand out from the lunchroom crowd.

FOR HIM

He can wear it all together—or break it down for about a billion (okay, slight exaggeration, but close) different looks. Click through to shop each piece.

Denim on denim is the way to go, but this will pair just as nicely with cords or cargo pants.

file

A little attitude goes a long way.

I mean, you could buy jeans at four times the price (but they wouldn't be any cooler).

file

Not that cheap for a belt, but it will add instant punch to any oufit and last for years.

Color contrasting high-tops stand out.

FOR HER

Total adorableness, for under 100 bucks. Click through to shop each piece.

Sure, it goes with jeans, but be adventurous—mix it with another print.

file

Just the right amount of flounce, and a cute-as-pie pattern.

file

A school girl classic that will never go out of style.

file

A bit spendy, sure, but the imitations pale in comparison and these will look great with skirts, dresses, patterned tights, leggings and skinny jeans—really, you can't go wrong.

file

Clever and cute.

file

Every girl needs a little bling--but the traditional color keeps this from being cute overkill.
