My oldest is going into high school. Its a Bais yaakov type school (but not BY).
Please help me help my daughter feel confident about her school bag. It’s so hard being a ninth grader and she really wants to fit in…
We don’t know what high school girls are wearing…
She said she thinks it should be black… preferably a name brand but not something too showy and expensive

Same boat hear.
We are in monsey though, not sure if it’s different. Please also share Monsey’s trends.
What about shoes? Her friend told her high school girl wear Vince shoes, they r over 100 a pair! What other shoes do high school girls wear these days?

Can’t go wrong with a lululemon or Marc Jacobs knapsack. Vince shoes yes. Also Sam Edelman.
Check off 5th and Nordstrom rack for great deals.

How about a Calvin Klein knapsack? Is that a possibility?

I've taught / teach in a few of Lakewoods high school. Certain styles and "looks" are specific to different schools (if you tell me which school, OP, I can tell you if I know what's in there), but certain things are pretty general. In some schools a black Marc jacobs or Ted baker is a perfect, "safe" pick; in others, a canvas tote is considered cute and trendy.

All brands mentioned here are pretty expensive. Is this typical for high school? Is this something I need to get used to or is there any ways around? When she was younger I was trying to get away with dups, are those days over? I’ve no idea what I’m getting myself into. (I’m talking about Monsey schools.

Honestly it’s just going to get worse from here on out. I have a few teens and the stuff so many of their classmates where is beyond ridiculous. Think 65% of one class has $900-$1200 coats. It’s a constant struggle when I say I won’t spend more than x amount. There’s such a need to fit in and get the right brands. Hopefully it all implodes soon so this nonsense ends.

I get my Vince shoes (slip ons) anywhere from 25$-50$ on off fifth. They are cheaper than anything I buy my toddlers lol!

A black MJ quilted briefcase is 100$ on Nordstrom rack usually and it should last through highschool.

I have multiple trendy nieces with different budgets in monsey schools.
