I’m a huge fan of SuperHeroStuff.com for a few reasons. First, economically they are a good fit for my wallet. Second, they have something for every member of my family. Last, but most importantly, I’ve never had any issues with the quality of the products or their longevity after washing, drying, and otherwise putting them through everyday life. It’s for those reasons I feel confident doing my son’s back to school shopping with them.
In honor of school starting ::and a thousand parents screamed in anticipation:: I’ve come up with a few outfit ideas to help you send your student back to school in superhero style. Since we are still on the heels of The Man of Steel release, I felt inspired to use the Man of Steel himself for some of the outfits I’ve chosen to share with you.
First up is Superman for Geek Chicks. The Man of Steel shirt ($24.99) is 100% cotton and I found it to be a little form-fitting. If you like your shirts to fit a little loose, I would suggest ordering one size up. The only thing in this outfit that you can’t purchase from SuperHeroStuff.com is the black fedora (aka Clark Kent-like hat). I found that on Amazon for a real steal. Complete the outfit with Superman earrings ($10.99), speaker wallet ($28.99), backpack, and seatbelt key chain ($14.99).
The guys have their own Superman variation to fit their style. My favorite part of this outfit is the underwear because of the cape on the back. It’s one of those “no one will ever know” details that is really neat. To achieve this look, you will need the Man of Steel Shirt ($21.99) , Man of Steel hat ($21.99), the awesome caped boxers ($17.99), and the Superman wallet ($17.99).
The big kids aren’t the only ones who get to go back to school in style. Pick up a few of these items for your younger fan to show off his or her Superman pride. In my opinion, girls could easily wear the boys’ shirts, but I understand that some girls have a fascination with pink. The shirts are 100% cotton and after washing my son’s shirt, I didn’t see that much of a difference in the way it fit him. The shirt sizes are pretty universal for kids, but to make sure they can grow into it a little, I’d get one size up. To achieve the look below, you will need the Superman T-shirt ($14.99), seatbelt belt ($14.99), Superman hat ($11.99), backpack ($47.99), and lunch box ($15.99).
Of course, not everyone is a fan of Superman, so if your student is more Transformers than superheroes, check out the selection of Transformers apparel available. I created this outfit with the college student in mind, but of course, it can be for the non-student as well. Keep in mind the juniors shirts are a little form-fitting, so if you like it to fit a little loose, order one size up. The guys’ sizes, like the kids’ sizes, are pretty universal so you can feel confident in ordering them in your usual size. To achieve the look below you will need one of the Transformers shirts (shirts start as low as $19.99) and the pajama pants ($24.99), wrist bands ($7.99), wallet ($19.99), and backpack ($39.99 ).
If school doesn’t start for a few more weeks in your area, how about a superhero family water day? Pick up a new swimsuit for everyone in the family and head to the water-park, beach, or your front lawn for some water fun.
Ladies, make sure you double-check your sizing before you order. Swimsuits are not returnable or refundable due to health precautions, so make sure you get your sizing right. If you have any questions, SuperHeroStuff representatives will be happy to help you make the right call.
Also, make sure you look at the care instructions. My husband accidentally washed my Wonder Woman bikini and then out of habit threw it in the dryer. The gold coloring on the suit started peeling off as soon as he took it out of the dryer. Air drying the suit will prevent that from happening. To outfit your family like the image below, you will need the Wonder Woman bikini ($35.99), Wonder Woman flip flops ($34.99), Batman board shorts ($28.99), Justice League retro action sandals ($16.99), girls’ tank splash binki set ($13.99), Batgirl sandals ($27.99) Batman red and black board shorts ($13.99), and JLA Heroes sandals ($17.99).
SuperHeroStuff.com offers items for every member of the family in a wide range of geeky patterns. Make sure you check out their website for more options so that you can help your kids hit the books in high style this academic year!
