Walmart is heading into the back-to-school season in style, nabbing an exclusive on “Mad Style by True Jackson,” a line of apparel and accessories inspired by the Nickelodeon series.

The line, designed by Jane Siskin, president and chief executive officer of L’Koral, is inspired by the live-action series True Jackson VP and includes long sleeved t-shirts; knit tees featuring graphics with positive messages like ‘Be true to you’; fashion leggings with novelty buttons; jumper dresses with removable straps; tunic dresses with pre-scrunched sleeves; Mary Jane shoes; ballet flats; and sneakers. Every item in the collection is priced at $14 or less.

“True Jackson VP inspires girls to dream big and embrace their individuality and creativity,” said Hal Snik, svp, domestic licensing, Nickelodeon/Viacom Consumer Products. “The Mad Style line embodies the spirit of the show and the clothes are comfortable and affordable enough so that girls can follow the trends or create a look totally in their own style.”
