Editors’ Picks: August 2014
We’re seeing an abundance of interesting and imaginative styles in the autumn and winter collections. This month, the standout piece is the new-and-improved sweatshirt, a game changer when it comes to dressing up an ordinary outfit. We have a few favorites, but encourage you to experiment with the season’s fall prints and textures. For ideas, see Looks | See All New Arrivals
This chambray vest from Tea Collection has it all: comfy, on trend, and incredibly versatile. He can dress it up with an oxford and slim chinos, or keep it casual over a sweatshirt and jeans. It’s the perfect transitional piece for fall and already designated as first-day-of-school worthy by my son.
I love just about anything with stripes, especially for kids, and this tee from Makie is no exception. The color combination is striking yet subtle, turning up the volume just a notch. A classic that will never go out of style, I think I might have to get one in every size.
It was hard to pick a favorite from all the great fall shoes for boys, but ultimately I went with these classic Puma high-tops because, as my son says, they’re “extremely cool.” I highly agree.
My nickname in high school and college was always Leopard Print Girl, and I’ve passed that love of leopard print everything on to my daughter. It’s no surprise that these comfortable leopard flats with faux rubber soles immediately caught my eye.
The Sturvy Girls Boots are the must-have shoes of fall. Tuck leggings and skinny jeans into them and show off their buckle detail. They’re all leather and easy to put on, plus the color will work with just about anything.
This Black Fleece Sweatshirt from Atsuyo et Akiko looks so comfortable, and the contrast of metallic gold on black gives it an especially stylish edge. I would love for my daughter to wear it with a pair of leggings and some boots. That’s the kind of fall outfit I love for myself, and she’s at an age where she likes to be “twins.”
I love this little gilet from Bakker Made With Love! With a seriously sophisticated look on the outside and surprise silver-stripe purple lining on the inside, it will be your girl’s pièce de résistance.
Mini Rodini launches a fiercely fun Autumn/Winter Collection this season, think carnival with a few twists. I love the bold stripe-on-stripe pattern in this girls stripe top, it’s definitely my favorite.
