For memorable “mini me” moments or stylish gifts for the little ones, this is the only designer clothes for kids guide you’ll need.
We all know there’s more to the holidays than gifts, but they do play a part, as do gatherings with loved ones, dinner parties with friends, annual family photos, and travel. That likely means time and effort spent making sure the children in your life are looking their best for each event—and unwrapping the hottest brands when it’s gift time.
Whether you look to North and the other Kardashian-West kids, Blue Ivy, or Instagram influencers like Laerta and Ryan Secret for style cues, there’s plenty of outfit inspiration at your fingertips. But with more luxury designers than ever making clothes, shoes, and accessories for children, the choices can be overwhelming. To simplify your holiday shopping experience, we’ve short-listed our best-selling brands of designer clothes for kids.
Golden Goose for Kids
Golden Goose’s pre-distressed, artisan-made sneakers have more than a few celebrity fans, including Olivia Wilde, Megan Fox, and Mandy Moore. Some, like Hilary Duff, Miranda Kerr, and Katie Holmes, also buy them for their kids. They’re the epitome of luxurious nonchalance and a definite status symbol for teens and tweens, just like they are for adults. With Velcro versions for toddlers and small kids, you can outfit the whole family in Golden Goose Superstar sneakers to make a statement of unified cool.
Gucci for Kids
A go-to brand for celebrity mini-me styles, Gucci crafts designer clothes for kids that come directly from its adult ready-to-wear collections. Beyonce and Blue Ivy have worn matching Gucci dresses on more than one occasion, and DJ Khaled’s son Asahd also has quite a few styles from the brand in his wardrobe (though he’s only three years old). Opting to go all-Gucci may simplify the styling work for your family holiday photo shoot. You’ll find dresses and skirts for girls, some in all-over double-G monogram with others in solids or metallic jacquard. V-neck sweaters and collared shirts make for handsome ensembles for the boys. When it’s time for gifting, consider a floral purse, a pair of fur-lined loafer mules, or red and green web sneakers for the tween girls in your life. For the boys, a logo-emblazoned sweatshirt, a monogram satchel, or a backpack make for a stylish return to school after the holidays are over.
Moncler for Kids
Fur-trimmed snowsuits for babies? Check. Adorable flared puffer coats for toddler girls, and varsity-themed snowsuits for toddler boys? Check and check again. High-shine down jackets and coats for bigger girls and boys with an iconic logo patch? Check yet again. When it comes to winter wear for all the kids in your life, Moncler checks all boxes—including the ones for luxury sweats and après-ski style. Create your own celeb look-alike moment à la Kim and North West, who were spotted on the slopes in matching Moncler ski suits. If you’re looking to buy smaller gifts that still elicit big smiles, consider a beanie, baseball cap, or quilted backpack.
Monnalisa for Kids
Monnalisa’s clothes, shoes, and accessories for girls are wildly popular among celebrity moms like Ciara, Madonna, and Khloe Kardashian. The whimsical collection features not only ultra-girly floral dresses and flared skirts, sequined varsity jackets, and shimmery boots and sneakers, but also über-cool graphic tees, sweatshirts, and hoodies. Girls of all ages, from toddlers to tweens, will love twirling around in their dresses at parties or posing in self-styled outfits for insta-worthy photos. If you’re giving a gift but aren’t sure about sizes, you can select from an assortment of purses, backpacks, and printed scarves.
