As a change-up from the Mexican-style blouses, take a good look around online shop Popadum where mom Bipasha Shom has gathered a small but stellar collection of tunics and tops for kids inspired by classic Indian artistry.
As soon as I laid eyes on the jaipur tunic I needed two; in person the natural cotton weave is luscious and the embroidery work is terrific, making it the perfect lightweight spring/summer top over jeans, long shorts, or even a bathing suit at the beach.
There are other cool tops for kids – the boy kind and the girl kind – so get browsing. Prices start at just $22 for hand-dyed batik tops and and the shop packages everything so spectacularly you’ll have a very impressive gift on your hands if you can part with it yourself. Namaste. –Liz
