Editors Best of 2011: The coolest boys clothes and accessories
We found so many cool boys' clothes this year, it may be the first year we've given boys' clothes their own category! Enjoy some of these awesome editors' picks, putting to rest the notion that only girls get the good shopping.
Red 21 Boys
Kristen: If there's a piece that juxtaposes classic lines with modern style, it's this rockin' skull jacket from Red 21 Boys. I'm always impressed with the quality of their clothes, which means years not weeks of washes and wear.
Black Kite kids' shirts Kristen
: In the sea of
blue and white (or some combination of the two) button-down shirts, the
funky colors and patterns of the Black Kite shirts make me wish I had
more reasons to dress my son up. Hmmm... maybe that's the point.
Goorin Bros hats
If you like little hats on your little man, but are yearning
for something more fashion forward than a sports team or whatever came
free in a fundraiser swag bag somewhere, Goorin Bros has you covered.
Find everything from trucker hats to newsboys, fedoras, skull caps and
Luchadores themed line from Tea CollectionLiz
: This Seņor Azul tee, and others from Tea's fall/winter Mexican-inspired line, are just a perfect pop culture-meets-kids-fashion moment for me. I can't imagine any boy that wouldn't love the theatrics of it all.
Fat Tie shirtsLiz:
They're shirts. Emblazoned with fat ties. Adorable.
Kermit Adidas Kristen
: I'm so ga-ga over these shoes that I wish they
made them in my size. What an excellent way to show your Muppet mania. And
of course, they're great for girls too.
Fabulous, thick, hearty organic underwear emblazoned with cute icons, none of which have their own animated series! (And psst, they're not just for boys.)
Livie and Luca Boys Shoes Kriste
n: As you moms
of boys know well, it's tough to find a casual shoe that can be dressed
up and down. I always find myself returning to Livie and Luca, and this
year is no exception. The cool styles plus awesome details (love the
mismatched numbers) put them at the top of my list.
