Good-bye, summer clothes! Those almost see-throughtops and very short shorts. Farewell ‘til next year thosewild-print pants. Thanks, polka-dot bikini! Fall is on theway, almost around the corner, and it’s time to fill shelvesand load hangers with brand-new clothes. What are thetrends for girls and boys, age 5 to teen? (Most stores say thatfashion-consciousness for girls starts around age 5.)Littlejohn’s in New Canaan prides itself on being chic,classic, as well as elegant/ trendy. They have many brandsof French jeans, admittedly for “skinny boys and girls.” Thefavorite look for fall: a longer-than-usual sweater, leggingsand simple top.“Boys always want to be comfortable and casual,” thestore’s fashion consultant said. “We have boys’ wear fromEngland that’s very good-looking, but casual; khaki pants,wool jackets, basic T-shirts. Speaking of jackets, we havewool jackets and leather-look jackets that make any outfitlook good.”

Last year’s corn maze at Ekonk Hill Turkey Farm in Moosup.
It’s too early for foliage and autumn still technicallyhasn’t even arrived, but there’s plenty of fall fun to behad at Connecticut farms. For adventurous types, it’s theperfect time to get lost in a corn maze. With a little luck— and know-how at some farms, which offer clues andtrivia to point you in the right direction — your familywill get through the maze in time to enjoy other farmfestivities, ranging from hayrides and animal encountersto corn pits and farmstand shopping.Here are some kernels worth knowing for getting themost out of the corn maze experience:• Shop around first. Corn mazes come in various shapesand sizes. If you’re a first-timer with a toddler in tow,it makes sense to choose a maze with less paths andtotal acreage. You might also discover a 2013 can’t-miss theme. In addition, not all corn mazes are stroll-er- or wheelchair-accessible.• Call ahead. On a sunny day following a rainy one, thepaths could be muddy and impassible, causing a cornmaze closure.• Avoid arriving close to quitting time. You won’t likelybe thrown out on your ear, but staying beyond closingis no way to butter up a farmer.• Go after dark. Some farms keep their corn mazes openfor treks by flashlight.

• Dress the part. Even days with a nip in the air canquickly feel dreadfully hot when the sun is beat-ing down and you’ve been trapped for 45 minuteswith a cranky kindergartener or fuss-pot fourth-grader. In other words, layers it is.• Play the game. Farms that offer directional hintsor numbered checkpoints do so not just as enter-taining extras, but because the maze may seemnear-impossible without them.• Keep moving. Even if you’re not sure of the bestpath to take, standing around to debate it causescorn maze congestion and doesn’t get you to thefinish line any faster. While peak times do of course vary, corn mazes are popular and havinga lot of company along the way is almost a given.Plasko’s Farm in Trumbull estimates that 10,000people a year visit the maze.• Keep your cool. Look at getting lost or reaching adead end and having to backtrack as extra familytogether time. As the corn maze rules at FosterFamily Farm in South Windsor state, “childrenare responsible for their parent’s behavior at alltimes.”• Know when it’s time to go. If the experience turnstoo trying, ask a “corn cop” staffer where thenearest escape route is. If the kids (or the adults)can’t beat the challenge this year, there’s alwaysnext year.
