expert advice: back-to-school cool

Kids want to look cool for school but they also want to create their own unique style. Dominique MacPherson and Melinda Marinack have an eye for choosing modern designer clothes for mom, baby and child at up to 60% off at their members-only shopping site, www.theminisocial.com. So start your back to school shopping now. For the best value and cutting-edge style, Dominique and Melinda suggest layering a few key pieces over your favorite spring and summer staples. Throw a printed hoodie over a t-shirt, layer a long-sleeve thermal over a short-sleeve one. Add tights, leg warmers or a cardigan to a pretty dress and you're ready for the new season. Check out the royal ash gray hoody by Kingsley, the multi-stripe tunic and leggings set by Splendid, a button-down cardigan by Nest (shown here) and jelly bean baby leggings by BabyLegs. For more great looks, go to www.theminisocial.com.
