Boys can be hard to buy for at the best of times, in the summer it is easy to pop a tee-shirt and some shorts on them. However, as we ease into the colder months not only must we find warm clothing but also items that are on trend and fashionable.
I have chosen some star buys based on the trends that are emerging for fall 2013.
Heritage tones like plums, mustard's, pastel blues, and moss greens feature heavily in boy’s trends across the board for autumn 2013. Crisp whites and nautical stripes feature heavily in this season’s hottest trends too.
Graphic printed tee-shirts are set to be big, the louder the graphic the better I think. Graphics that stand out draw the eye to the finer detail of what a child is wearing. Choosing graphics that the child likes and reflect the child’s interests is a way of bringing forward a child’s individual personality through clothes. If your child likes skateboarding, for example an inexpensive tee shirt with a skateboard graphic will mix well into the trends for this fall/winter.

Preppy striped jumpers, gingham shirts and varsity jackets are set to be huge. Mixing and matching items, prints and fabrics that one would not normally piece together is the key to this seasons looks.
The revival of corduroy is big as are jeans in burgundy and mustard colours. Colourful trousers are a sure fire way let your boy make a big impact this season.

For the more fashion adventurous young man adding a baker hat and some polished boots bring a look from average to extraordinary in a flash. I have chosen some of my favourite pieces for boys this season.
