When it comes to kids’ clothing, adjectives like ‘cute’ and ‘precious’ get thrown about quite a bit. Terms like ‘sophisticated’ and ‘fashion-forward’? Not so much, unless you’ve been exposed to the gorgeous kids’ styles from Fleur + dot by PetalPetal designs. Incorporating vintage-inspired beauty into their pint-sized, handmade looks, Fleur + dot still remembers for whom they’re designing: real kids. From the high-waisted shorts to denim blouses and shirts, every article is simple in terms of fit and function, yet the designs are so extraordinary thanks to such special details. A ruffle here, a Peter Pan collar there…it all adds up to something unique and beautiful. Nearly every style is available in sizes 18-24 months all the way up to size 8, which means even the tiny ones get in on the fun fashion.
