Mittens, mittens, everywhere…

Mittens are the obvious star of this show, not only because these styles are stylish and fun, but because they’re easy for kids of all ages to slip on-and-off themselves. Some of these styles are meant for hardcore snow time, while some are simply meant to keep her hands from getting a chill.

Trend spotting: Winter coats for girls

When it comes to winter coats for girls, the trends are all over the style board this year. There are a lot of bold prints, but they are balanced with feminine, extra-girly florals and pastels.

If you’re looking for something simple, don’t worry — winter coats for girls that are on the plainer side are actually on-trend right now — you’ll have plenty to choose from!

Our favorite picks from etnies Kids

etnies Kids

Just like us, you’ve probably heard about etnies Kids, but maybe you had no idea that they carry some of the coolest, most functional shoes for kids right now… and, for price points that won’t make you faint. Here are some of our favorites from their new fall collection…

etnies Kids High Rise

The etnies Kids High Rise ($55) are the classic etnies that we know and love. Available in sizes for toddlers and bigger kids, these are the all-time, super cool, will last through even the most rough-and-tumble kiddos. We love them for their sturdy feel — these are hardly a high-top that your little guy will have falling apart after the first wear. Plus, for fall, the High Rise is perfect for school days, as they are lined with cozy fleece inside to keep his toes warm on the playground. His favorite part about the etnies Kids High Rise? They look like the shoes the pros wear… and, they are, just on a smaller scale!

etnies Kids Scout

An instant favorite at our house was the etnies Kids Scout ($40). These lightweight tennis shoes came as a pleasant surprise to me — I didn’t realize that etnies Kids made shoes like these and as soon as my girls put them on, I knew I’d have a hard time getting them to wear anything else! Not only are they super light and flexible — perfect for both school and weekend adventures — but they come in the coolest, most fashionable patterns.

etnies Kids Scout Pink

My girls also loved the etnies Kids Scout for school. They both have tennis shoes that they wear on PE days, but compared to their new Scouts, their old shoes feel like bricks! I can tell they love them because they can go from the classroom to PE to the playground without skipping a beat, even making the transition with my 4th grader to Girls on the Run after school. The Scout is made to be as breathable and flexible as possible, with etnies’ signature STI Evolution Foam in the footbed that makes kids feel like they’re walking on marshmallows!

How you can #fall4etnies

Have you fallen for etnies Kids, like we have? There is a way you can add some of their new fall collection to your kids’ closets this fall! Start by entering to win a $200 shopping spree from etnies in their #fall4etnies giveaway. You can enter below, or on the etnies Facebook page.

How do you feel about ripped jeans for kids? They seem to be on-trend right now, with more and more stylish moms who love to dress casual adding a pair of cool, ripped jeans to their kids’ wardrobes. Check out what other moms think about this trend and how to style them for your own laid-back kids.

Ripped jeans for kids… Yes or no?

When it comes to ripped jeans for kids, moms are on the fence… some think they’re super cool and stylish, while others are certain they’re only for playtime.

“My kids wear ripped jeans, but only because they’ve been worn-out so much that they’ve rubbed through the knees and now they’re ripped!” shares Ana. “We keep those for outside play.”

A mom of all boys agrees, telling us, “I just can’t get myself on board with this trend. I have such a hard time keeping my boys from getting holes and rips in their jeans as it is that I can’t imagine actually buying them worn-out in the first place.”

On the other hand, there are moms who are loving ripped jeans for kids… and for themselves! “I love my super-soft, worn-in, vintage-style jeans and I love when my kids wear them too.”

“My kids wear uniforms to school, so dressing casual on the weekends is a treat for them. My girls’ favorite jeans are ones that have rips and little holes in them. It’s their style and I don’t really mind.”

Where to get them

While you can easily pick-up a pair of ripped jeans at your favorite everyday store right now, there are a few shops that are also making custom ripped jeans for kids that take this trend to an entirely new level of style. Check out Susie’s Custom (Instagram: @SusiesCustom) for some of our personal favorites… but be sure to add yourself to their mailing list and follow on Instagram to get updates on when they’re taking new orders. These ripped jeans for kids go quick!

Meet Brady and Lola

Kid Street Style Brady, age four, and his sister Lola, 16 months, are certainly some of the cutest — and most stylish — kiddos we’ve spotted for our kid street style series. With an entire Instagram feed dedicated to their mama’s love of kids’ fashions (check them out on @BradyandLola) we love seeing what these two are wearing and how they’re wearing it.

What mom says

Brady and Lola’s mom, Crystal Current, dishes on their style, which she loves to help them create when she’s not working as a sixth grade teacher and college professor. (Busy mama!) Kid Street Style Brady’s four-year-old style is all about comfort, but he does have an opinion about the way he dresses, too. “He’s a jeans and t-shirt/sweatshirt and sneakers kind of kid,” mom, Crystal shares. While he’s not picky about the particular clothes he wears, he is particular about the way they feel… comfy is a must! “For his clothing, I also love Prefresh (Instagram: @prefresh), Electric Collective (Instagram: @ElectricCollective), kid + kind (Instagram: @kidandkind) and, of course, GAP and Crewcuts for basics.” Crystal also shares that she keeps Brady’s style simple, but cool, with layers of a fun tee with a hoodie, adding a puffer vest or a flannel jacket on top, for warmth. And, their favorite boy shoes of the moment? New Balance! They love their funky, retro colors. Kid Street Style Lola follows suit with her style, with comfort and functionality as the keys… especially for quick and easy diaper changes, according to mom, Crystal! While Crystal says that Lola does prefer to wear something on her head — either a hat or a headwrap — besides that, Lola is pretty flexible about her style, letting Crystal dress her in whatever goodies have most recently arrived in the mail. “I love to mix-and-match prints on her and play with contrasts,” Crystal shares. “I love plaids with florals or stripes. And, I’m a huge fan of high-waisted bloomers, leg warmers, rompers and fun layers. I don’t really have rules that apply when I’m dressing her… just whatever jumps out at me!”

Where to shop

“I love the entire child fashion community on Instagram,” Crystal shares. “Not only do I support these mamas and their shops, but most of us have become friends too, which is the best part.” And, these shops show their love for Brady and Lola, and their style, by having them as representatives for their brands, often trading them their newest styles and collections in exchange for pictures of Brady and Lola rockin’ them on Instagram. Sounds like a stylish win-win, right? We’re lucky that we get to follow along!

Some brands that are their favorites and ones they work closely with include: Kenzie Jaws (Instagram: @KenzieJaws) Hudson & Ruthie (Instagram: @HudsonandRuthie) Crew & Lu (Instagram: @CrewandLu) Leia Roux (Instagram: @LeiaRoux) James Vincent Design Co. (Instagram: @JamesVincentDesignCo) kate&jAMES (Instagram: @kateandjAMES_shop) Hello Mess (Instagram: @hello_mess) Cotton Bottom Designs (Instagram: @CottonBottomDesigns) Love Blooms Here (Instagram: @Love_Blooms_Here).

Meet Maxwell and Ace


They’re likely some of the most popular celebrity kids right now… and they don’t even know it! Jessica Simpson’s daughter and son, Maxwell, 2-1/2-years-old, and Ace, 15-months-old, have been sharing the spotlight with their singer and fashion designer mom lately and everyone is devouring every picture of these cuties.

Celebrity kid style


When it comes to Maxwell and Ace’s celebrity kid style, we’re happy to report that these kids dress like, well, normal kids. Even at events where they’re being stalked by the paparazzi and featured in full-page magazine spreads, these kids are keeping it cool with styles that you would probably dress your own kids in and that you might even have in your kids’ closets. They aren’t overdressed, they aren’t wearing designer labels, they aren’t wearing clothes that need to be dry cleaned as soon as they’re covered in chalk… and we love that!

Looking for more celebrity kid style? Check out how Prince George celebrates his first birthday in style


While we featured the style of Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis’ baby girl, Wyatt, recently, who we’re certain will be dressed in anything but pink in her first year of life, we can’t say the same about Maxwell, who often wears clothes from her mom’s girls’ clothing line (available everywhere from Amazon to Nordstrom) and is often seen in fun, bright, girly colors and patterns.

Ace, on the other hand, has a sportier style. After all, his dad is former NFL tight end, Eric Johnson! He’s often seen on Jessica Simpson’s Instagram account in super-casual gray t-shirts and comfy shorts. There’s sometimes a pop of a simple pattern or a fun graphic, but neither Ace nor Maxwell have jumped on the bandwagon of wearing tees with trendy sayings or styles that seem to be more adult than kid.

Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis
Meet Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis’ baby girl

There’s been a lot of buzz lately about the oh-so-pregnant Mila Kunis, who is expected to give birth to her daughter, with boyfriend Ashton Kutcher, at any moment. While most of the chat is about how much yoga Mila is doing in the last days of her pregnancy and how hot her legs still look, we’re more excited about the impending, sure-to-be adorable bundle of joy!

Newborn celebrity baby style

We can’t imagine that Ashton and Mila are stocking up on all-things-pink as they prepare for their daughter’s arrival. Mila usually rocks a style that’s somewhere between L.A. boho-chic and casual sporty (red carpet glam moments aside, obviously) and Ashton can often be found in a vintage tee and baseball cap, so we’re thinking that their little girl’s style will follow suit.

Our favorite picks for the Kutcher-Kunis baby girl? Funky graphic tees. Cool tribal patterns. Pops of bright neon colors, even in pinks. Moccasins. Natural fabrics, like bamboo and organic cotton, for blankets and baby-wearing gear.

Get the look

Celebrity Baby Style

1. Best Day Ever Tee, Ezra + Eli, $25
This shirt is cool and funky, with a unisex-vibe, but also kind of sweet for a little girl. Her parents are crazy cool celebrities… of course she’s having the best day ever!

2. munsterkids Lil Love Tribal Cream Pants, BabySwag, $37
We love these pants that are a cozy alternative to traditional leggings for girls. And, the hearts give this tribal print a girly touch.

3. Bamboo Dream Blanket, aden+anais, $60
Every celebrity needs a go-to blanket for covering their newborn baby from the glare of paparazzi flashes and we expect that Ashton and Mila will realize this, quickly, with all of the media attention her pregnancy is gaining. While any of the blankets from aden+anais are a good choice, we love this super-soft bamboo version in a subtle pattern and color.

4. Cherry Moccasins, Freshly Picked, $60
Taking her style to the boho-chic side, we’re guessing that we’ll see at least a pair or two of celeb-favorite, Freshly Picked Moccasins, on Ashton and Mila’s baby girl.

5. Tucker + Tate Animal Socks, 6-Pack, Nordstrom, $20
Celebs are known for skipping the baby-esque fashions all together when they become parents, but we couldn’t resist these sweet baby socks from one of our favorite brands, Tucker + Tate, for their little girl.

Meet Henry and George

Henry and George Street StyleIntroducing our coolest new kiddos who are showing us their kid street style, Henry and George. These brothers, who make their home in Seattle, have a love for super-soft clothes that have a kick of style. Plus, an addiction to Crocs that even mom, Sara, can’t deny.

Boy style 101

Kid Street Style

Henry, age 7, and George, age almost 4, have styles that are similar, but that mom, Sara, says that they each have a look that’s all their own. Henry is all about super comfy pants, like sweats, that Sara balances with fun shirts in soft fabrics and prints. George is a little more flexible, wearing mostly Henry’s hand-me-downs with ease, but also embracing the statement piece from time-to-time. “I splurged on this winter coat from GAP for him this year,” Sara tells us. “He loves it and calls himself a lion when he wears it.”

Where do their styles collide? With footwear. Henry and George both prefer to wear all Crocs, all of the time.

Where to shop

Sara shares that when it comes to dressing the boys (George still lets her… Henry prefers to style himself), she’s all about two elements — layers and stripes. “I’m a sucker for Tea Collection and Mini Boden,” she confesses, but, lucky for her, she tells us that she has an amazing consignment store in her neighborhood where she often snags both brands at half of the cost. Another brand Sara loves for when the boys’ closets are lacking basics is Cotton Caboodle. “The tees and pants are soft and well-fitting… they remind me of Splendid,” Sara shares.

Get the look of George and Henry

Let Henry and George inspire the style of your little guy with these favorites that will give you a similar look.
