Metro Mama & Metro Baby

By Kim Taylor

This year spring fashion for kids is especially colorful and cheery, with The Children’s Place presenting garden party floral print dresses and sweet pastels along with graphic tees and beach wear, and Lester’s featuring sunny neon colors, fringe, swirls, college sports team tees, camp-wear and funky miniature brand-name fashion.

Is there anything more adorable than children at garden parties in floral dresses and tiny-guy vests? The look at The Children’s Place for spring is garden party semi-formal, especially for girls, as well as super casual with graphic t-shirts, surfer shorts, bright patterned skirts, sparkly shirts and headbands. There’s an eclectic mix this season at http://www.thechildrensplace.com, so you’re sure to find numerous just-perfect items for your blossoming brood. Check out the selection of polka dot ballet flats and colorful sneakers too; stop in to The Children’s Place shop at Union Square East, near 16th Street and visit their website for more locations.

There’s a reason why Lester’s is so beloved by its patrons, who travel near and far to shop at this ultra-friendly mom-and-pop shop that has burgeoned into a franchise. The reason is high quality, cutting edge clothes combined with pampering service. This spring, Lester’s is showcasing neon blues, yellows, pinks, and oranges – as well as kids clothes with a ‘70s vibe: fringe, wild patterns, tie-dye. The Lester’s camp selection for kids provides everything necessary for sleep-away comfort and style, and the shoe department is large, extensive, and stocked with miniature versions of many high-quality adult brands. Boys will appreciate the selection of surf shorts and sports logo clothing at Lester’s too. Shop online at http://www.Lesters.com, or visit its Upper East Side store at 2nd Avenue and 80th Street. Lester’s also has stores in Brooklyn (Avenue U and Coney Island Avenue), Long Island (Greenvale and Huntington), Westchester (Rye) and New Jersey (Deal).

The bottom line for spring is neons, florals, ‘70s style, graphic tees, crochet, surf attire, sparkles, and casual comfort. Let the park games begin!
