Dressing Your Little Divas and Young Gentlemen
Let fun fashion flourish!
It’s no surprise my daughter is into fashion. She just turned seven and has had an opinion since she was two.
When I gave birth to a healthy baby girl I was excited to have a real live doll to dress. When I gave birth to a boy a few years later, I felt I’d hit the jackpot! I’m always on the hunt for cute clothes for them, and every time I turn around they’ve outgrown something else.
Dig for a deal.
Make sure to hit a wide variety of stores when shopping for your kids. I love Zara and Children’s Place for basics because the price points are so reasonable. I tend to buy socks, shorts, leggings, underwear, plain tee shirts and collar shirts there because you can’t beat the prices.
I may not usually shop at Gap, but with the pairing of outside designer Diane von Furstenberg, it’s definitely a store I will “fall into.” Wrap up your tykes in some DVF wrap dresses for Gap.
A step up from Gap in price but also in cute style is CREWCUTS for J.Crew. Right now, I’m loving these CREWCUTS picks for girls: Wafer Terry Colorblock Dress, Rosalie Twisted Dress, Organdy Flounce Skirt (in numerous colors), Exclamation Tee in Stripe and Milano Gladiator Sandals.
For boys, go crazy for the Short-sleeve Shirt in Pons Gingham and the Ludlow Suit Jacket in Chambray. Crewcuts also has great fun tees and tons of casual boy clothes. I also love Eland and Eddy Pen for pants, but make sure to always hit those on sale.
If it’s a peace loving hipster girl you’re raising, try Flowers by Zoe. Check out the Sequin Heart Tie Dye Dress Ruffled or the Pink Airbrush Shorts. I love Ella Moss’s little ELLA line for girls as well as the casual cool look of Vintage Havana’s kids’ line.
If it’s tees you’re after, go wild for Wildfox and fall in love with their Love Potion Tee.
At the end of the day, kids grow and kids play. Clothes should be comfortable and fun.
We at doB say, whatever their style, they should be wearing it with a smile.
