You’ve seen them at school and thought, How great—but can my kids pull it off? It’s true that the rock-chic vibe is more challenging to execute than prep, but consider it an opportunity to give your kids’ style a little attitude. Downtown dressing is all in the mix—the more unconventional, the better. It can be as simple as a dark denim jacket, or as elaborate as a pile-on of knits.  Mixing prints and patterns requires a bit of guesswork, but stick to items in the same color family, and you’ll be fine. We love these inherently hip basics, because just one will achieve the look—no trickiness required.—CC
