Here’s an idea that makes the grade for fashion-conscious students: On Friday and Saturday, August 10 and 11, customers receive a $10 Shop Etc. mall gift card, while supplies last, when they take receipts, dated August 10 or 11, totaling $75 or more to the Redemption Zone on the lower level, Center Court between 11 a.m. and 9 p.m.

 

In addition, retailers at Hulen Mall are spotlighting all the latest back-to-school fashion trends. To make certain shoppers are on target, Steve Kemble, America’s Sassiest Lifestyle Guru and General Growth Properties (GGP) style expert, offers the following tips and trends to help make shopping a little easier:

While pint-sized skinny jeans have been popular for a while, this back-to-school season, shoppers will find them in a rainbow of colors including neons. They’re the perfect pop of color for the playground and look great paired with basics like tees and polos. Prints, please. No doubt influenced heavily by adult fashion, prints (stars, florals, chevron stripes and more) are trickling down to the younger set and involve more than just graphic tees. Printed tights, tops, dresses, pants and even cords will be plentiful in the school hallways this year. British Invasion – thanks to the upcoming London Olympic Games, the British are coming in more ways than one. Union Jack motifs, plaids, satchels and Harry Potter-esque uniform styles will all be popular for back to school. Metallics are also big for accessories like handbags and backpacks and shoes. They are also turning up in certain clothing styles like leggings.
