I can’t tell you how often I’m shopping for pieces for my little girl’s wardrobe and say, “I wish that came in my size!” Kids clothing designers have stepped it up in recent years, making it possible for parents to build as stylish of a wardrobe for their little ones as they do for themselves. So, with March being our Spring Fashion-themed month here on LaurenConrad.com, I wanted to share a roundup of warm weather pieces for the little ones in your life. Now, I can’t guarantee that your strong-minded toddler won’t exercise his or her budding sense of fashion by adding a snow hat and a tutu on top of whatever outfit you picked out (which is a regular occurrence in our household). But I can guarantee that these 10 items will make up a pretty chic foundation for your little one’s spring wardrobe. Check out 10 of my top picks below…
1. Briar Lamb Bonnet, $42
Briar’s bonnets are the must-have baby and kids accessory you never knew you needed. They have a range of adorable floral, solid-color, and brimmed styles for baby boys and girls, but I’m especially smitten with this sweet little lamb bonnet for spring.
2. Minnow Swim Girl’s Mini Check Ruffle One-Piece and Boy’s Mini Check Briefs, $45 – $64
Swimsuit season is just around the corner, and you’re not the only one who needs a new bathing suit to wear. If your little one is looking for something to wear to the beach or pool, Minnow has the most adorable new gingham designs (and as we know from this post, gingham is right on trend!).
3. Kira Kids Camera Print Skater Dress and Camera Print Romper, $29 – $48
These lightweight designs in the cutest conversational print make great transitional pieces. If it’s still on the cooler side where you live, but you’re ready for a spring palette, you can’t go wrong with the vintage mint hue either.
4. Nate Berkus Baby 3-Piece Bodysuit Set in Heather Grey/Oatmeal, $15
Nate Berkus just launched his first collection of baby clothes with Target earlier this year, and it’s every bit as chic as his home décor designs. This onesie set would make a great shower gift for a friend or a great set of staples for your own little one.
5. Zara Striped Dress and Checked Linen Shirt, $22.90 – $29.90
If you love to score fashion-forward, affordable pieces at Zara for yourself, then their kids’ collection is probably going to be your new favorite place to shop for little ones. These two pieces above are some of my top picks from their spring collection for your little girl or little boy.
6. Izzy & Ferd Cactus Tank and Coyote Leggings, $36 – $40
Designed and made in L.A., Izzy & Ferd is known for their conversational prints featuring scenes from nature, science, history, and literature that a curious kiddo will love. Their S/S 2017 collection is called ‘Pecos Bill’ and features adorable Western prints like these ones.
7. Freshly Picked Moccasins, $29 – $60
You didn’t think we’d do a kids style guide without including some of these adorable moccs, did you? Freshly Picked moccs are a must-have for any new mama, and we’re loving some of their latest spring designs, from textured teal to rainbow dots to marbled rose.
8. Oh Joy! Newborn Gift Box Bundle in Dark Blue, $12
Oh Joy!’s signature playful designs are perfect for the mama and kiddos who love color. Right now is the time to snag a bunch of her early spring designs on sale, and a little birdie told us there is a brand new collection dropping in April!
9. Masala Baby Pom Pom Shorts in Java Turquoise and Seer Sucker Stripe Shorts in Navy, $40 each
Masala Baby is a winner in our book based on the facts alone that it’s all eco-friendly, environmentally responsible and made at fair trade factories in India. Then you have the fact that it’s casual cool designs are so popular with kiddos, and you can’t go wrong.
10. Baby Gap Stripe Flutter Top and Ocean Embroidery Short Sleeve Shirt, $30 each
I don’t always do a ton of shopping at Gap for myself, but I was pleased to discover that they have some of the cutest pieces around for little ones. These sweet spring pieces are casual enough to be play clothes, but could also be dressed up for an Easter brunch or spring soiree.
Which of these pieces will you be shopping for?
