Celebrate spring with some new bright and cheery warm-weather styles for the kids.
The sun is fighting its way through the clouds, and it’s starting to feel like it’s time to put away the sweaters and rain boots.
But even more fun, perhaps, than pulling out your spring staples, is picking up a few bright and cheery warm-weather pieces for the kids. Here are some colorful and on-trend looks for the little ones in your life.
Flowers are one of the happiest sign of spring, and the darling Beebay Blue Sunflower A Line Dress ($13 at zulily.com; only available through 6 a.m. March 23) makes great use of a bold sunflower print on a pretty blue frock. A hot-pink ribbon and bow adds a sweet accent. Seattle e-tailer Zulily holds 72-hours sales, so act fast for its deals.
Mix and match the Ralph Lauren Ruffled Top & Floral Legging (on sale for $45.50 at ralphlauren.com) for all of your spring and summer events. A lovely pink peplum top comes with bright, flowery leggings that are cute and comfy.
Getting 1-year photos taken? She’ll shine in the Kate Spade New York Short Sleeve Bow Tee and Leggings Set ($68 at zappos.com), a perfect special-occasion outfit with a pretty bow and ruffle top and button-embellished striped leggings.
Take the adorable overall look into the warmer months with the First Impressions 2-Piece Polo Shirt & Shortall Set ($38.50 at Macy’s), which pairs a grey polo shirt with patterned black shortalls for a casual yet dapper look.
Outfit him in a cool midcentury-mod vehicle tee with the Beebay Cream Transport Tee ($10 at zulily.com; only available through 6 a.m. March 23), and he’ll be ready to zip around all day.
For special spring occasions, the J.Crew Liberty Tresco Floral Dress ($118) is a chic option that features a beautiful flower pattern from London’s Liberty Art Fabrics. A tie-waist and simple sheath shape keep it youthful.
Made from all vegan materials, the Chooze Toddler Sandals In Happy Shine ($35 at Bootyland Kids, Wallingford) have an intentionally mismatched metallic color scheme, which means they’re sure to coordinate with whatever outfit your child chooses for the day.
She can add a little something special to her look with Brookes Hair Clips ($15 at Bootyland Kids), unique hair accessories that are handcrafted in Seattle with just the right amount of color and sparkle.
The versatile J.Crew Striped Terry Romper ($49.50) can be worn with a button-down or T-shirt in the spring and to the beach as the weather heats up. You can even throw a skirt on over the super-soft terry piece for a perfect playdate outfit.
A classic look takes a playful turn with the Mini Boden Patterned Cotton Twill Chino Shorts ($38.50 at Nordstrom), which feature thunderbolt and guitar patterns on a crisp but comfy chino.
Add some tees to his drawers in happy springtime colors, such as the Gap Multi-Stripe Polo ($22), in green, yellow or pink, or the Lucky Brand Kids Slub Stripe V-Neck ($24–$26 at zappos.com) in a bright, striped pattern.
For her big event, consider the Miss Behave Adrianna Dress ($88 at Nordstrom), in a hip floral with tasteful on-trend cutouts and a fun, flared skirt.
Camo is still super hot, and the Unionbay Ambrose Camo Midi Short ($20, plus 10 percent off with code SPRING10 at unionbay.com) are comfortable and versatile. The Seattle company’s shorts come with the added bonus of a faux-leather belt.
On-trend lace details add to the Ella Moss Girl Sade Short Sleeve Woven Top ($54 at zappos.com), which features an abstract floral pattern and can be dressed up or down depending on the occasion.
Graphic tees are an essential spring item, and the slouchy Roxy Beach Tribe Tee ($32.50 at Horseshoe Boutique, Ballard) stands out thanks to its beautiful color and hot tribal-inspired motif.
The Tucker + Tate Cuff Denim Shorts ($32.50 at Nordstrom) will quickly become his go-to short throughout the spring and summer (and look pretty great on girls, as well).
It can still get chilly on spring and summer nights, so keep handy the 7 For All Mankind Kids Hooded Color Block Burnout Sweatshirt ($55 at zappos.com) and he’ll stay warm in style.
