Back-to-school time is crucial. It's the unofficial part of the year when trends matter the most. As schools gear up for the new year, students (and their parents) are shopping for the best outfits, supplies and accessories that will welcome them into fall.
According to Pinterest, there are a few trends that are getting a little more love than the rest. Over recent months, there's been a 297 percent increase in back-to-school pins, and currently there are about 6 million school supply pins on the social media platform. So it's safe to assume that families are already embracing a September mindset.
In addition to those statistics, Pinterest shared the trending topics that are being searched and pinned everyday. Take a look at the trends below and get a little more inspired to finish BTS shopping.
