Back To School Fashions at MacArthur Center

The end of summer is coming soon and we have partnered with MacArthur Center to bring you the best kid styles for heading back to school! To gear up for the season, we went looking for three Hampton Roads’ boys and girls to be featured in this blog wearing all of the best back to school fashions from MacArthur Center. We gave each of the winners a $100 MacArthur Center Gift Card and told them they could go shopping anywhere in the mall. Here is where they went and what they picked!


Our Elementary School contest winner is a lovely young lady named Lilah! This vibrant rising first grader is six years old and attends Ghent Elementary School. She and her mom decided that Justice was the perfect place to shop for back to school fashions at MacArthur Center. Here is what she picked…


Justice is located on the first floor of MacArthur Center. Terri and Shannon welcomed us immediately and assisted Lilah in selecting her outfits. Justice carries girls clothing (sizes 6-20) and a ton of fun accessories and sportswear. Trends for this school year include emojis, cardigans, t’s with positive messages and super soft fabrics in bright colors!

Solomon is our Middle School contest winner and he is full of personality! This 12 year old is entering the 8th grade at Indian River Middle School and has been a part of the gifted program since 3rd grade! Solomon typically dresses preppy in pants and a collared shirt for school, so he was excited to choose Kids Foot Locker to shop for something a little different this year. Kids Foot Locker is located on the first floor of MacArthur Center and has clothes, shoes and accessories for boys and girls!


Sneakers in every size, shape and color are the focal point of this great store. Start with the shoes and move on to the clothing from there! Both boys and girls can find some great back to school fashions here for school this year!

Our High School winner is a lovely young woman named Adrienne. She is heading into the 10th grade at Oscar Smith High School in Chesapeake and is in the IB program! Adrienne says that there are a ton of different styles that the kids are wearing this year. She seems to gravitate towards the classic looks that are comfortable and sophisticated! Adrienne loves shopping for clothes at Charlotte Russe and Forever 21 at MacArthur Center.


Forever 21 has styles for every personality! When I looked around, I saw a lot of striped fabrics and the color maroon was repeated throughout.


Forever 21 has a huge two-story store at MacArthur Center on the 2nd and 3rd levels near Dillard’s. The store is stocked full of accessories of every kind!!!
