There are lots of back to school kids’ clothing trends that we’re really liking this year, but one of them: the return of the star. The classic five-point star is showing up everywhere from the mass stores to the hottest kids’ brands, looking more celestial than cowboy. Here, just a few favorites to get your kids looking galactic-cool from top to bottom. They’re not just for birthday crowns anymore! –Liz
