Denim on denim is a huge trend for fall. Perfect for your cool kid, a denim shirt and jeans can be worn Canadian tuxedo-style, but the versatile separates can also be mixed and matched with virtually everything else in his closet for an endless variety of outfits. The bonus? A denim shirt boasts a face-framing collar that’s ideal for pictures — without looking too stuffy.

The bold stroke of solid colour around her face will look great in a photo and, once she’s been snapped by the photographer, this peplum-style tunic and stretchy, heart-print skinny jeans will keep her comfortable for the rest of the day. Help her haul her library books in a coordinating striped backpack.
Mixing prints and patterns is a fun way to add interest to basic separates. This striped dress gets kicked up a notch with the addition of knee socks (of a different stripe!) and floral running shoes. Dressy enough for picture day, this comfortable combo is also great for the playground, fusing fashion and function.
Get your pint-size pupils gussied up for their very first picture day in bright colours that will pop in a photo. For her: A bow-embellished cardigan in of-the-moment chartreuse atop a polka dot, net skirt is definitely photo worthy. For him: Simplicity is key. Jeans, a classic long-sleeve polo (avoid splashy graphics and logos on picture day), and cool kicks fit the bill.
Sweats for picture day? Yes! Knitwear as everyday wear is hot for fall. For her: The face-framing jewels on this embellished sweatshirt make it a great choice for picture day. Pair it with a skinny jean in a coordinating jewel tone. For him: The key is to choose tailored pieces that borrow details from regular street clothes like the cargo pockets on these sweatpants.
This pop-of-purple varsity jacket will see your student off to school in style. Pair it with a sequined tee and a zebra-print skirt for an unexpected twist. The bold colours and graphic print will look great in her class composite!
