It is officially that magical time of year when the kiddos have settled back into school, temperatures are beginning to drop, and all of autumn’s festive excitement is on the horizon. But just as a new season brings change and renewal, it also signals the need to update the little ones’ wardrobes. There’s no need to stress over spending or styling for transitional and fall weather, though. At b kids, the top-notch children’s boutique in Mountain Brook Village, shopping for the kiddos is easy, affordable and, most importantly, fun.
Today, we’re talk with the style gurus at b kids about what fall trends they’re seeing and sharing a few of our favorite looks. Prepare for some serious cuteness — these sweet kiddos, Fletcher, Ford and Audrey with their furry friend and b kids shop dog, Khaki, are modeling six looks that will make your kids and your wallet happy. Here are the fall fashions your little cutie needs!
FOR YOUR LITTLE PRINCESS
Sometimes shopping for a young girl can be tricky. They’ve got their own style preferences, you know what looks best and it’s essential to get the most out of your purchase, especially as the kiddos are gearing up for a busy season and growing fast. Shelley Matthews, Owner of b kids, tells us to keep an eye out for “all shades of camo, bomber jackets, belt bags and high tops.” We’re also seeing animal print, rocker-esque styles, bright colors and velvet on our fall and winter trend forecast.
Here are two looks ideal for any casual fall event. You’ll notice how layering fun jackets over bright tops streamline these looks while adding a touch of funky flair. Both Fletcher and Audrey loved these outfits and felt confident in them, which is most important. After all, you want the kiddos to not only feel comfortable, but also excited to wear their new styles, while you enjoy their to-die-for cuteness!
The end of the year brings with it family celebrations, birthday parties and plenty of holiday soirees that require dressier looks. Luckily, b kids has got you covered. Both of these adorable models are rocking the sweetest velvet skirt that is comfortable, age-appropriate, on-trend and perfect for the season’s upcoming celebrations. You’ll also see how to best style the animal print trend on your little princess without going over-the-top.
Consider these looks a fantastic choice for any of the dressier events or dinners you’ve got planned over the next few months. As temperatures continue to drop, layer each of these with the jackets featured above, some black tights and sweet black flats for a polished, yet oh-so-cute style that both you and she will love.
FOR YOUR MINI MAN
For your little guy, Shelley suggests opting for “fresh takes on camo and retro car and motorcycle motifs” for the upcoming season. Additionally, leather jackets, especially in a funky brown shade, are on-trend for fall and have a way of turning your sweet son into a dapper little gentleman. Stripes are always in style, especially in unique, yet subdued shades, as are khaki and olive green pants, both of which are timeless classics that will last through the season and beyond.
Consider styling your little man in this sweet striped sweater and olive green pants for any casual outing, including visiting the pumpkin patch or attending the school’s autumn celebration. He’ll love the cozy comfort of this sweater and you’ll love how its top-notch quality will stay strong throughout the season.
For your dressier obligations, these khaki pants paired with a simple, high-quality long-sleeve shirt and brown leather jacket are fantastic. He won’t feel constricted by an uncomfortable outfit, and you’ll be swooning over how handsome he looks! To dress this one up even more, go for a solid button up tucked in, add a belt and some classic loafers, and voila — your mini man is ready to party.
FUN ACCESSORIES & GIFTS
Don’t forget the accessories! We let our mini models pick their favorites, and coincidentally, they’re b kid’s best-selling accessories and gifts. Shelley tells us that “DIY squishies, llama, unicorn and sequin everything” are the staff’s favorite in-store gifting items, and we can see why! These fun headbands combine all of these accessory trends into one adorable styling item. The girls loved wearing them. Additionally, mini purses and understated necklaces make your little girl feel like a stylish Southern lady, and they are sweet and thoughtful gifts for friends.
One of our favorite aspects of b kids is their desire to encourage the little ones to rock their own personal style. Shelley tells parents to “let your kids stand out in the crowd.” And she curates an affordable, high-quality collection of styles that will excite the kids and delight the moms. All of these looks let the kids express themselves while looking polished enough for any of your upcoming fall and winter events. So forego that end-of-the-year shopping stress and head to b kids for mom-and-kid-approved looks, ensuring your babes are ready to take on the season in adorable, affordable style!
