Dressing for success starts early. We asked area students to model these motivating back-to-school looks. All children were outfitted with clothes from Gap, Sugarcup Trading Company, Geppetto's Toy Box and Diana Shoes of Oak Park.

In the fall it's best to keep kids layered with options for playing outside, skating at the park or studying at the kitchen table.

Thank You, Michelle for having such an inspiring collection of kids apparel & accessories for us to choose from - all of the kids (and adults) had a blast during this photo shoot!

Suzie, Thank you and the Journal for including Sugarcup Trading this year. It was fun for our team and I am sure for the kids. We are thrilled the way you showcased the layering of new and traded items and that kids can be comfortable and playful while expressing their own sense of style.
