Back-to-School Buys

Stocking up on stylish accessories is a snap at these three retailers.

Exclusive! Save 25%
Enter the discount code METROKIDS during checkout at KidsSocks.com for 25% off your full order. Expires Sept. 15.

KidsSocks.com carries more than 3,000 styles, but a few quick clicks lead you to socks for any occasion: knee-highs that work well with school uniforms, basic cotton whites to wear with sneakers or lace tights that pair nicely with a frilly dress.

Shop for jeggings at Five Below. Your teen or tween can sport this skinny pant, perfect for everyday, with slouchy T-shirts and flats. At $5 a pair, it won’t break the bank to buy one in every wash. Available in juniors sizes S-XL.


The new NEST Philadelphia in Midtown Village carries duds favored by celebrity moms and dads and boutique brands making their first appearance in the area, like the edgy-yet-silly MadPax. Strap on the spiky, neon-bright Spiketus Rex backpack and your child’s back will gain a dinosaur-like hump. $28-$60. Opens August 11 at 1301 Locust St., Phila.


Stephanie Halinski is calendar editor and toy/product coordinator of MetroKids.
