Anyone who has ever purchased a baby gift knows that Plaid Rabbit is a go-to destination for gifts and clothing for children and babies. The selection on the shelves of this children’s boutique is enough to make your heart melt. And while shopping for wee ones is no problem, as kiddos begin to develop their own style, shopping can get more complicated. Recognizing this struggle, Plaid Rabbit Owners Macy Mulligan and Kendra La, expanded their store to accommodate kids of all ages. Properly Plaid, Plaid Rabbit’s sister shop, caters to older kids, ages 7 to 16. The shelves are stocked with the cutest clothes, perfect for every occasion.

Properly Plaid strives to serve parents and kids by providing options that range from jeans and t-shirts to dresses and blazers. Outfitting the in-between age is easy thanks to a selection that the kids and parents both love. In addition to a large selection of clothing, you can find gifts and accessories galore.

We stopped by to shop with Macy and Kendra to see the selection and check out what their kids are eyeing for the holidays. Their four kiddos donned two outfits each, one casual and one formal, to show us their selections in action. The eight looks (plus four jackets) showcase the range of offerings at Properly Plaid and give ideas for how to dress our own kids this season. Whether attending a family get-together or friend’s after-school party, these looks ensure the young ones will be dressed to impress.

Casual Looks

Denim and dresses made the list of must-haves for this season’s casual events. These four looks let us see how kids can be cute and comfortable. And while easy, these looks are far from boring. The gals were more than thrilled to add a sparkly shoe, fashionable jacket and furry vest to their outfits, and the handsome guy was happy to run around in his stylish outfit as well.
