From the playground to the racks at clothing stores across metro Detroit, Oakland County and Ann Arbor – rock, paper, scissors is taking over spring fashion! With neon colored jeans, soft fabrics, metallics and frayed-edged Ts and tanks, this season's fashions mimic the elements of this old-school kids' hand game. Flip through this gallery of photos featuring Samson, age 5, from White Lake, Kalei, age 4, of Saline and Kennedy, age 9, from Birmingham. The trio rocks clothing items from Sam & Lola in Birmingham, The Purple Bear in Birmingham, Elephant Ears in Ann Arbor, Love Child in Royal Oak, My Urban Toddler in Saline and Target.
