The coolest pop culture bow ties for boys. No preppy plaids.

Despite living in the land of spring seersucker and smocking — also known as The South — my boys aren’t exactly preppy. And getting them to wear a bow tie on Easter seemed like an impossibility, until I found RougeBox. This little gem of an Etsy shop has amazing pop culture bow ties my boys and I can’t help but love. Owner Joanne Kim creates these handmade ties in Los Angeles, and that big-city cool comes through in every piece. Whether your boy is more a fan of Thor, Star Wars, Wimpy Kid, or Dr. Seuss, I can’t imagine you won’t find one...

A first look at the cutest new kids clothes from Appaman for spring

If you’re the type who follows kid fashion well, join the club. We’re excited to offer you an exclusive first look at the Appaman spring 2015 collection that just launched this very second. We’ve loved Appaman since way way back when all of our kids were wee ones, but the truth is, they now do cool for tweens so well so you don’t have to be bummed when your kids hit six and suddenly they’re out of the label. There are some new things in the new collection that I can’t wait to let my kids try on. So, I thought I’d pick out a few of my favorite warmer-weather...

Stylish threads for on-trend little guys

Moms of boys, you know it can be a full-on hunt to find cool threads for our little guys. Especially if, like mine, your son happens to love fashion.  So when I discovered Aven Clothing, I actually squealed with happiness. Aven founders Angie Monson and Mitch Harris have created an all-boys clothing line that is wonderfully stylish. The line includes blazers, pullovers, chinos and the cutest cropped vest, all with an edgy European flair. This definitely isn’t your average jeans and t-shirt line, though you will find lots of denim (and even a cool hoodie).                                         ...

Cool suits for little boys? They exist!

We are big fans of Fore! Axel and Hudson. Their golf inspired clothes for boys are just so darn cool. But they do more than the golf stuff, as it turns out, and if you’ve got a fancy occasion coming up, but a not-so-fancy boy, this is a terrific site for you. I dig formal clothes for boys that still allow the boy to shine. Which is why I am thoroughly digging the scooter suit. It’s a perfectly sized and detailed two piece suit that is equally at home at a garden party or an outdoor wedding. (Not that...

Fancy clothes for baby boys…with a twist

When you are invited to a fancy affair with a baby boy, it can be tricky to navigate the waters. Girls are so easy (Yes, I’m a mom of boys so this is all just speculation tinged with jealousy), no matter the age. You’ve got dresses, tunics, and little headbands and clips to tie the look together. And boys? Not so much. Until now. Meet the Shirtzie by Andy & Evans. This dressy snapsuit for boys is absolutely genius and I’m only mad that I didn’t think of it myself. This shirt is business in the front, party in...

Stylish boys’ wedding clothes – Reader Q&A

Any suggestions where I can find stylish outfits online for my 3 year and 1 year old boys to wear to an outdoor summer wedding? – question via Twitter Your sharp-dressed toddlers will look amazing in one of Appaman’s Fine Tailoring suits or separates. I love their cool modern cut that help prevent little guys from looking “swallowed up” in an oversized suit. For your young kids, I think this seersucker shorts and jacket suit is too adorable. With tons of fabrics to choose from, the funky handmade boys’ neckties from The Belle and the Beau (also shown at...

Jeffrey Sebelia serves up rockin threads for our little dudes

Dressing our little dudes up is no easy task. While it may be fairly easy to go preppy and sport the oxford shirt and khaki pants route, sometimes social events beckon for more rock and roll than country club. A new kids label from a Project Runway favorite has answered our call.  La Miniatura is the label of Jeffrey Sebelia, the designer with the rock band and the awesome neck tattoo who won Bravo’s Project Runway Season Three. Jeffrey’s also unforgettable for his style and wit, and now, his line of rad threads for boys, all throwbacks to the...

Dressed to thrill

After the fun of dressing two little girls, I was pleasantly surprised to find that outfitting my baby boy was pretty darn fun too. So much for the myth that little boy clothes aren’t nearly as cute as little girl clothes. I do struggle in one area though: dressing up. Formal clothing for boys is a real mixed bag, and most of the button-down shirts I’ve found are downright boring. The handsome, modern button-down shirts for boys from Black Kite are my idea of the perfect dress up get-up for boys. Owner/designer Lindsay Mangat selects prints that have great...

The perfect pint-sized party clothes

We have a bunch of special occasions coming up–Father’s Day, our favorite sitter’s graduation, the grandparents’ anniversary. My eyes have been open to some especially special occasion clothes for the kids. You know–something fancy. Without sauce on it. CMP highlighted the fabulous Kico Kids a while ago, and their new spring/summer line proves to be the perfect place to find special-occasion kiddie couture. They have twirly princess dresses, fabulous bolero jackets, and even a two-in-one flower girl dress (it converts into a cotton shift!), which manage to be sweet, fashion-forward, and timeless, all at the same time. Plus: comfortable, made with kid-friendly...
