Since 2008, Velvet & Tweed has been the go-to source for parents in need of special-occasion children’s clothes that are formal but not fussy (i.e., kids don’t want to pull them off). The brainchild of San Francisco designer Tina Schreiber, a children's fashion vet who previously helped launch the upscale boutique Janie and Jack, the collection takes its inspiration from European designs, offering such classics as Liberty print dresses and ruffled wool coats for girls, and herringbone button-downs and pinstriped blazers for boys. Even onesies take an elegant turn in Schreiber’s hands, made in seersucker and linen, with delicate buttons and gathered sleeves.
It’s a big sale for little fashionistas! Highly sought-after labels like Antik Batik, Baby Eggi and Tooby Doo make sure she’s dressed for the occasion, whether she’s joining you for weekend errands or playing with the boys. Check out the playground-ready rompers, sweet-as-pie frocks and colorful knits.
This charming checkered print is timeless, and can be found in the closets of kids (and adults) everywhere. The hand-picked selection here features adorable dresses and swimsuits that have a vintage vibe, plus classic button-downs and the cutest pair of gingham sneakers.
