Micro Fashion

Miniature wardrobe wares get a stylish boost.

 

KIDS’ FASHION HAS ENTERED a whole new era of cool, judging by the influx of tiny trendsetters (like designer Alexander Wang’s niece, Aila, and fashionable twins M&D of Instagram’s @2yungkings) and an increasingly stylish selection of goods at local kids’ boutiques in St. Louis. Faux fur, sequins, leggings and lace have overtaken the girlie gear of today’s fashionista-in-the making while boys are now dapper  mini-versions of their dads, fully equipped with suspenders, bow ties and corduroy sport coats. Even  babies are getting a fashionable wardrobe makeover with adorable shrunken versions of hot trends from  graphic tees to turbans. Although the stylish additions bear a close resemblance to the runway trends
favored by the older set, the pint-sized versions have us ooohing and ahhing all the way home.
