Children adore bright colors and clothes with a presence; parents want their children to dress appropriately for the occasion. The best approach? A combination of the two styles that results in what everyone wants –– a fusion of sophisticated designs with a bit of edge, but with comfortable, wearable fabrics. Companies that cater to this particular children’s fashion niche are well-rewarded with repeat customers who have a clear, balanced understanding of what looks best on their children and what delights their child’s emerging sense of personal style statements. One company, Maisonnette, is a go-to resource for cute couture with a fashionable flair.

While fashion trends come and go, what is always in fashion is comfort: clothes need to be adorable but wearable –– this is where Cheryl Grossman’s Boker & Laila shines. What does Cheryl Grossman have that you want? How about loads of 100% cotton, tagless pajamas and bodysuits in designs that make parents rave and kids comfortable and cozy! Grossman started the company to fill in the niche for ultra-comfortable sleepwear after failing to find night clothes that wouldn’t scratch. Boker & Laila pjs are constructed from pure cotton and are brushed on the inside to ensure the cushiony softness needed for little ones to drift off to dreamland.

In spring, buyers shop for back-to-school clothes for next fall. For children, comfort is at the forefront for every season — if their clothes are not easy to wear, they distract from the work at hand. Of course, it helps to be decked out in cool duds, which is where these brands come in: Grubbie Style, Jelly the Pug and Hudson Threads. Each makes great looking fashions, using easy-to-care for fabrics that stay looking fresh through thrills and spills. Shoppers search for clothes that don’t look run of the mill, and these vendors are miles away from any thought of herd mentality.
