Pre-Teens love jewelry and accessories that evoke their personality, so the more, the better. For your fashionista daughter who wants to amp up her uniform, opt for small jewelry pieces in distinctive shapes. The small size won’t cause a distraction in class, but the unique style will make your daughter feel like an individual.

Personalized accessories also do the trick. Opt for a monogrammed paracord bracelet in your child’s favorite colors. It's a great option for boys who want to spruce up the typical uniform. Also, they’re made from parachute cord that is almost indestructible. A double win!

Comfy shoes are a must, but let your middle schooler have some fun with an emphasis on style! Closed toes are often a requirement for many schools, but that doesn’t mean there has to be a lack of creative shoewear. For your young Anna Wintour or David Beckham, buy them a pair of metallic kicks to amp up their outfit.
