Holiday Gift Guide: Kids' Outfits
We track down 10 holiday outfits sold at Ladue-Frontenac area stores that are sure to keep your kids looking cute.
Most parents love dressing their younger kids in the most adorable outfits they can find for holiday parties, church services and other events. Several stores in the Ladue-Frontenac area offer options that will make the little girls and boys in your life the center of attention wherever they go.
MACS Designs has several cute items for kids. The first look suggested to me by sales associate Robin Jonas was a cute black ruffled dress for girls ($152). For younger girls, the store also carries an adorable green corduroy jumper ($50) that is sure to help bring in the Christmas spirit.
For little boys, MACS carries white hooded sweaters ($33) that can be paired with their red corduroy pants ($23) for the holidays.
MACS also includes monogramming (having the wearer's initials sewn on) with any purchase - the perfect addition to make your kids' outfits one-of-a-kind.
Saks Fifth Avenue at Plaza Frontenac has a great selection of dresses that will be sure to make your little girl the center of attention at any party or church service she attends. Two of the most adorable dresses, as brought to my attention by Saks marketing director Colleen O'Neill, are a flouncy light pink and black dress ($120) and a red corduroy Ralph Lauren dress ($49.50).
For little boys, O'Neill suggested a Ralph Lauren outfit ($60) that includes a plaid shirt and corduroy pants, and a Burberry ensemble that includes a red zip-up sweater ($95) with the distinctive Burberry plaid on the shoulders, a white t-shirt (also with the plaid on the shoulders, $55) and a pair of khakis ($95).
At Jillybean Children's Boutique, which is located in the back of Essential Elements, owner Dana Radetic picked out a great blue and gold outfit ($199) by I Love Gorgeous that is perfect for girls this season, especially when paired with a matching gold sweater ($89). For baby girls, Radetic chose a multi-colored dress ($92) by Catimini.
For boys, Radetic put together an ensemble that includes a pair of navy pants ($38) by Cotton Caboodle, a red and navy-striped button-up shirt ($47) by Toobydoo and a grey sweater with navy, white and red stripes ($69, also Toobydo).
