As another long, hot UAE summer slowly winds down it’s time for schoolkids to get into learning mode once again - and mum and dad to prepare for early morning regimens, lunchboxes, and homework.
But as we all know, kids are constantly changing and evolving – both physically and in their personalities – so in the 12 months since parents last stocked up on clothes and school accessories a lot has probably changed. In fact, it may seem like you have a whole new human on your hands.
As the back-to-school season gets ready to kick off, your trend-conscious youngster will have very definite ideas about how they want to express themselves in front of peers.
If you’re a parent who hasn’t even begun to shop for the next school season, don’t despair! Lifestyle – the region’s leading retailer of beauty, home and fashion – has launched its refreshing new back-to-school collection to help you overcome any pressure.
Keeping in view the urgent need to be eco-conscious, Lifestyle’s new range scores high on sustainability too as it includes items made using recycled plastic bottles.
From trendy designs across tween stationery, beauty supplies, tech and kids’ accessories with a minimum warranty of one year, you can now shop online at Centrepointstores.com and in-person at Lifestyle and Centrepoint stores across the UAE.
So get your tweens and head to Lifestyle to check out some of the fabulous essentials on offer.
