Angelina Jolie, Sarah Jessica Parker, Kelly Ripa, Katie Holmes, Gwyneth Paltrow, Reese Witherspoon and Madonna. All are stylish mommies. All have equally stylish kids. And all of them are famous fans of J.Crew’s covetable line for kids, Crewcuts. (As are Michelle Obama and her daughters!)
“We’ve always found that the clothes themselves inspire us – as well as the kids who wear them!”
That’s Jenny Cooper, Head of Design for Crewcuts, who strives for fashion that is polished and stylish, yet soft and comfy for kids. She delivers! Have you seen these clothes? Beyond adorable! I want one of everything for myself!
She shares her five Fall must haves for the playground set.
Skinny jeans on both boys and girls, in a multitude of variations – clean dark stretch, washed, patched and repaired, splattered with paint and customized by yourself or your best friend!
Fun, flowered and ruffled t-shirts are essentials – day in day out, wear a new one every day. Crewcuts has versions with all-over jersey ruffles for mad fun and tiny silk ruffles for a slightly more sedate approach. We have them with stripes and flowers and soft gathers. Trade it out some days for a cool graphic tee. All are machine washable and look fabulous every day!
We love brightly colored baubles to add fun and excitement to every outfit – a shot of shocking pink beaded necklace with grosgrain, a bubble bracelet crowned with a diamond fireball and jingly rings to play with while trying to pay attention in school!
SKIRTING THE ISSUE
Our washable silk bubble skirt with stripy tights or leggings! Lined in jersey, it’s the most comfortable, easy way to get dressed AND look amazing! Available in gorgeous colors like dusty mauve, a soft peachy pink and a dark plum.
Grey flannel little boy blazers on little girls. We love the introduction of boyish elements with our girlish things, like a boy blazer set against our favorite ruffle tees and our taffeta skirts. It’s such a huge trend for girls to borrow from the boys and we love the mix!
