Bend the Trend with JCPenney + Giveaway

It’s back-to-school time which means… new clothes! My boys are pretty different when it comes to their clothing choices and styles, we’ve found lately though, that JCPenney has a great selection for both of them and at some great prices!

My oldest is very much a comfort kind of guy. He loves soft fabrics and graphic tees. He LOVES checking out the graphic tee selection at JCPenney anytime we visit.

It’s such an easy way to express your personality and interests when you’re a tween or teen boy (WHY is he almost a teen?!). Plus, they have a GREAT selection of Star Wars tees and I KNOW there are lots of you with Star Wars fans!

My youngest, on the other hand, loves to #bendthetrend (a fun social media campaign JCPenney is doing) and mixes and matches styles often to show off his personality.

He is ALL about the jogger pants this year. I think we bought 3 pairs. He’s loving this style and I love that he feels like he can express his personality through whatever clothing makes him feel confident. I’ve always encouraged them to try on new things and see what they like. This time he went crazy for a new style, lol!

We’ve always loved the Arizona brand for him. They use great fabrics and make one of the only jeans that actually fit his slim frame well.

They have a great selection of action sports brands as well. He loves Vans (shoes and clothing) so was happy to add some new accessories to his collection. 😉

Both of my boys love to layer in the fall no matter what style they’re leaning towards at the time. Flannels are always a popular choice!

One thing I have instilled in my boys even before going to school is to be kind. I think it is one of the most important things I can teach my boys so we’ll be participating in National #ShoutOutDay on August 12th! This Back-to-School season, JCPenney is starting a shout-out movement in hopes of bending the trend of judgement towards one of positive reinforcement. We’ll be sending #shoutout messages to lots of friends and family and I hope you will too!

  5. A few pairs of some cute print leggings are on my back to school list for my daughter!

  6. No kids in school, not even the grandchildren. So we are just looking at things we are comfortable in for work and adding a few casual items for leisure time.t

  7. New jeans and plaid shirts are the main trend my family goes for at back to school time. It works well for both my college-age kids.

  8. I only have girls. We like girly hoodies a lot – embellished with lace, ruffles or unusual prints.

    My boys eat , sleep and breathe sports. So most of the back to school clothes I bought this year are sport themed.

  11. My kids don’t really have a style and they both mix and match quite a bit.

  12. My son loves Under Armour. It’s expensive so I’m always hunting for sale items.
