“Back to School is fast approaching! Visit the Promenade on Saturday, August 24 from 11am-3pm for the Promenade Pep Rally featuring the Argo Cheerleaders, fashion tips from Listen to Lena’s Lena Almeida, an anti-bullying workshop and performances from glee sensation Choir! Choir! Choir!”
Wait – what?? That’s right – if you live in the Greater Toronto Area, come meet me on Saturday at the Promenade! Discover what everyone will be wearing around campus this fall as I share back to school trend tips for the entire family. I’ll even demo the latest fashions from some of my favourite stores in the mall! Expect to see classic prints like houndstooth and leopard, chunky knits, military inspired looks, knee socks, platform shoes, bold blazers and crisp collared shirts in the classroom for girls. V-kneck sweaters, button down shirts, khakis, loose fitting cargo pants, graphic t-shirts, colourful shoes and printed sneakers are must haves for boys.
