Meet Addi, Liv and Emma

Kid Street Style

These cute girls, Addie (age 5), Liv (age 4) and Emma (age 2), are some of the most stylish sisters we’ve ever seen. Their mom, Candice Appel (@CandiceAppel), features their looks and everyday life with these cuties (and their big brother!) on her popular Instagram account and we eat up every single post.

What mom says

Kid Street Style Girls

“I’m kind of OCD about when it comes to dressing the girls,” Candice shares. “They have to coordinate.” While we know their mom likely spends a lot of time pulling together the girls’ outfits, they don’t have that matchy-matchy look that moms with style dread. The girls looks are fun, colorful at times and filled with each girl’s unique style.

We asked Candice what the girls would wear, if they could have the run of their closets and she reported back: “Addi loves dresses. She tries to wear her favorite Taylor Joelle Designs dress to school twice a week. Liv is all about comfort, preferring a comfy, soft tee that’s not too tight, a skirt that twirls and flip-flops. And, Emma is all about her Hunter boots right now.”

Where to shop

To get a look inspired by the Appel girls, try shopping at some of their favorite stores and with some of their favorite brands:

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).
