GUCCI

Gucci's bold fashions become much more subdued (though still chic!) when minimized – however, the prices aren't quite as small. A girls' sweater ($275) and shorts set ($210) costs about the same as a pint-size tote ($440), and boys' skinny gray jeans ($265) are slightly more than a pair of mini suspenders ($230).

Though best known for his dramatic, couture red carpet gowns, the fashion legend makes his kids' creations surprisingly accessible, with a boys' striped top ($75) and pants ($85) that are almost OK for play and a girls' dress (see the blouse version for $85) that's great for an extra-special school day.

Unlike the grown-up versions, the label's little looks are sweet, not sexy. Leopard print gets refined in the form of a dainty blue dress and matching cardigan; meanwhile, guys get to suit up just like dad in on-trend cuffed jeans, a cozy jacket and an ever-cool statement tee. Prices upon request.

Mom of four McCartney puts a lot of thought into her designs, which is why her kids' separates – like hooded tops and skirts ($75) or checkered shirts ($105) paired with pants – are both practical and appealing.

Young boys look all grown up in Varvatos's threads, which take too-cool-for-school suits and dress them down with trendy T-shirts and sweet sneakers. Prices upon request.

Why mess with a classic? Lauren shrinks his beloved grown-up looks for kids, offering pieces that any adult would want to wear, like trenches ($150) and dresses ($150) for girls and sweatshirts ($55) and pants ($55) for boys.

That same hip vibe Armani infuses into his adult runway looks is found in his kids' collection, which includes darling dresses ($200) for girls and detailed blazers ($300) for little guys.
