Bring on the pastels! The seersucker! The florals!
Easter is such a fun occasion to dress up the kiddos, and this spring's new collections burst with whimsy and charm. Here are my stand-outs, including my favorite dress of the season.
First up is this floral frill-collar romper from JoJo Maman Bebe, which comes in a $39 two-pack along with a striped romper that also features a darling frill collar. (The only thing better than a frill collar is a frill collar made of eyelet fabric!)
This floral romper is sweet and playful -- a perfect Easter look that is comfortable and versatile enough to also work for casual events.
I didn't think so.
Next up is another comfy cotton pick: JoJo Maman Bebe's Green Duck A-Line Dress for $36. Available in sizes 6-12 months up to 5-6 years, with sizing that runs big, this color palette will win hearts.
It's feminine with a sporty finish, thanks to the stripes -- including pockets, which were a big hit with this 5-year-old.
Unlike all the sleeveless Easter dresses, this one is practical for a Minnesota celebration. And don't the ducks look Midwestern? Soooo cute!
Your daughter's Easter dress does not have to be fussy. I'd take a nice thick cotton over a synthetic polyester or tulle any day. Not only will your child be more comfortable, you'll also get more use of the dress. I'm all for Easter outfits that can be worn long after the eggs have been found and the candy, consumed.
My third pick also delivers warmth: this $14.99 Cat & Jack bunny sweater, available in 12 month to 5T. Match the bunny's bowtie and draw out its nose with these $11.99 pink Cat & Jack pants. (Or, if we luck out with warmer Easter weather, opt for shorts.)
