From the Runway to the Playground: Fashion-inspired Kids Clothes

FURRY COATS
Plush, fluffy coats were a runway regular; in kid sizes, this looks fun (and feels great to tiny hands).

SWEET DOTS
Polkadots turned up in shows by from Lanvin to L.A.M.B. This party dress from a classic brand nails it for the little girl set—and it’s a perfect pass-it-on investment.

BIG BLOCKS
The color blocking trend looked great at DKNY and will look equally great on your little one in this totally affordable H&M version (plus, bow pocket!).

BIG BLOCKS, PART II
You can also color-block using separates, too; these Crew Cuts pieces get the same effect Giambattista Valli did so well—except smaller.

FLOWERS EVERYWHERE
When have florals not been in style? But the allover flower print is particularly big now (as this Jil Sander look demonstrates), and Tea Collection’s “Taiavera” hits it beautifully.
