Dream Designer Outfits – for Kids!
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).
OSCAR DE LA RENTA
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.
DOLCE & GABBANA
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.
