Now Trending: Back-to-School Styles in the Wearhouse

By Jessa Slade, Treehouse Wearhouse Assistant

Now that it’s August, the Wearhouse is officially in back-to-school mode! More than 900 youth and families are expected to walk through our doors over the next few weeks to shop for styles they can rock when they head back to class.

Back-to-school donation drives throughout the community are key to helping us keep up with the needs of our shoppers, and also play a huge role in making sure our store carries the most in-demand trends and fashions. Whether you are hosting a donation drive, participating in one in your community, or considering how you can support the Wearhouse, we’ve created a donation shopping guide with the top trends our shoppers are hoping to see in our store this fall:


This year, comfort is king. Teens and tweens are searching for items that show off their sporty side. Think leggings in all colors, hoodies and sweatpants with slim cuts and crops, varsity jackets, and fresh sneakers.

Clothing in the Wearhouse


Younger shoppers love bright colors, superhero, and character backpacks. This year, many of our older shoppers are picking over the shoulder styles or backpacks with leather accents.

Wearhouse Backpacks


Denim is always in. While younger boys and girls love classic looks, our teens are looking to stand out in updated cuts and styles. Skinny, boyfriend, and slim cuts are popular, as well as distressed denim and light, dark, and black washes.

Blue Jeans


From funny phrases to branded logos, graphic t-shirts are a classic back-to-school style that appeals to all ages.

Graphic Tees
