Fashion consultant Alison Deyette shared this year's fashion "must haves" with This Morning as several kids modeled the trends from Rye Middle School and Rye High School in Rye, N.Y.
For kids, it's all about the layered look. Make sure they can take off or put on clothing to stay comfortable, warm and dry, says Deyette.
For Special Back To School Coverage
Store windows from the Gap to Old Navy are showing vests; the trend stretches from puffy to fleece, she notes. Dark denim is still in - coupled with embroidery on the cuff, she says.
For high schoolers, the look is loose and layered, and comfortable: parachute pants for guys, and the skant, a combination of skirt and pants, for girls.
Swan wears a bucket hat, a striped long-sleeved top, a fleeced vest with a hood and dark denim jeans.

|Fringe is in|
Ally's Western look comes straight from the runways. Her skirt is from Guess; the matching fringe shirt and boots are from Durango.
Chelsea wears a plaid field coat with a big turtleneck and a suede mini skirt. The outfit is from DKNY Kids.
Cheyne wears a bright orange long-sleeved tank and tee, an ergonomic backpack, a plaid mini skirt and trendy boots.
