Animal Graphics

If your mini-me can’t get enough of leopard spots or zebra stripes, opt for a subtle (but still playful) animal print. Instead of an all-over pattern, try a tee or sweatshirt that features a sole dear or bunny. The look is both kid-like and put-together.

Updated Classics

Don’t get us wrong, we would never pass up a pair of classic lace-up boots or leather sneakers. But we’re always open to updated versions of our favorite styles, and that’s where Vince Camuto Kids comes in. Think glitter, stud detailing and perforated leather. With designs like these, one thing’s for sure: Your kids’ shoes will be the talk of the school bus.

Sweatshirt Shifts

Struggle to get your daughter out of her pajamas and into “real” clothes in the morning? If so, sweatshirt shift dresses are the way to go. Stylish but comfortable (i.e., playdate-friendly), they can be paired with virtually anything, from high-tops to statement necklaces. Dressed up or down, this number won’t disappoint.

Well-Worn Denims

Clearly, the denim trend isn’t going anywhere, but that doesn’t mean your kid needs to stick with the same old blues. This fall is all about distressed denim, so bring on the fades, rips and frays. To fully embrace this trend’s laid-back vibe, let him rock his favorite T-shirt and a trusty pair of boots. Ready to crush it on the playground? Most definitely.

Knit Cardigans

Fall is all about layering, so it’s no surprise that knit cardigans are going to be the star of the season. Might we suggest going with a bright hue that will make your tot’s outfit really pop? Just remember to keep the rest of the clothes neutral.
