Micro fashion just got more magnificent. From “cool kid” casual looks to elaborate ensembles, children’s clothing is anything but boring. Try these four fashionable trends next time you’re shopping for your family.

 

Fancy and Frilly 

 

There’s nothing cuter than children dressed to the nines. From holiday parties to recitals, glamorous frills can elevate your child’s look in a fun way. We know you can’t help but snap a million and one photos of your tots, but we know you won’t be able to resist an #OOTD photo of your little ones in these holiday staples for boys and girls.

PEEK’s sequin tulle gown is a shimmering dress that would amass envy from Cinderella herself. To match this little princess, boys will look as dapper as ever in Brooks Brothers’ two-button prep blazer. Who said tiny couldn’t mean trendy?

Merry Must-Haves

 

Sugar, spice, and everything nice. Get into the holiday swing with winter favorites for your family. Janie and Jack’s drop-waist tartan dress is made for the merriest of holiday celebrations. The soft velvet collar finishes the graceful look like the final touches on a newly wrapped present.

For boys, Gap’s colorblock shawl cardigan is a relaxed yet buttoned-up look perfect for meeting Santa Claus. Pair this cardigan with simple khakis and dress shoes to make it a family photo-ready look.

Cute and Casual

 

Childhood is a time for playful imaginations, laughter and fun-filled moments. Kids can dress the part in cute, casual attire that’s perfect for the playground. Burberry’s cotton linen shirt dress featured cartoonish appliqués from the brand’s London Icons collection. The images of Big Ben, rain clouds, and symbols synonymous with Britain are freely adorned on the striped fabric with lines and shapes drawn as freely as a coloring book. Designed with a bow and gathered waist, the dress is a playful addition to a girl’s wardrobe.

Similar to Burberry’s laidback look, boys can loosen up in Carter’s matching set. The cotton shirt and pants duo is just as cute as it is cozy, with a bear motif that’s oh-so-huggable.

Bright and Bold

 

Children have one major advantage over adults: they aren’t afraid of standing out. Kids don’t get self-conscious when they toss around their armoire for the brightest and boldest pieces. Like a utensil in their crayon box, color is the way kids often express themselves.

Young girls can feel pretty in pink while playing dress-up in J. Crew’s vibrant drop-waist floral dress. To match the lively sheen frock, boys will stand out among the crowd in Lacoste’s petite pique polo shirt.
