Spring Easter Fashion for Kids!
It’s time to gear up for spring kiddo style! So let’s hop to it…grab your little peeps your sparkle, your jumpsuits, your bunny ears and let’s do this Easter Fashion, as I recently did for my annual TODAY show segment!
Pastels are anything but pale this spring! Eye-drawing ruffles and a burst of flowers play up a blue pastel jumpsuit, whose kitty hat and bunny purse jump with cuteness from Joules.
For the boys, go mini Miami Vice with a sleek, pink seersucker blazer atop a floral shirt and shorts-set from Janie and Jack. Substitute pants for a more formal look. I love a soft Bashful Bunny to accompany the egg hunt. There’s no need for a hat, when you have a head of hair like his.

FRUITY NEON HUES
Fun fruity spring prints slice up with one of the season’s hottest color trends, neon! See if you can spot the strawberries and limes on Alana’s sweet sundress—both girls are wearing dresses by Maisonette—and the girls’ sparkly sequin bunny ears are all of $5.99 from Cat & Jack.
Then Ashlyn’s dress is just so fresh and citrusy crisp and ready for spring by Hollie Hastie, and I adore the matching pop of yellow – really look for yellow everywhere--on her dress, on her T-strap clogs—with both girls wearing shoes by Old Navy.

THE NEW NEUTRALS
Layers of neutral hues straight from the runways--means simple spring sophistication. Consider neutral plaids with a touch of color and lean on everyday essentials for the rest that can be used well beyond the holiday. We love that as parents, don’t we?
For a return to all things vintage, here we feel a little nostalgic in a dress by the same name from Boden with cream and vintage flowers, and a lookalike bunny by Pink Olive. Her sweet floral headband reminds us that spring blooms are on the way!
Finally William with easy dressing with a 4-in-1 vest set from Macy’s for just only $40: gotta love crisp gingham. His classic boat shoes by Sperry: you just slip them on and go!

SISTERLY STRIPES & DENIM-ON-DENIM
Crisp stripes for tweens and matchy denim-on-denim are our final nods to on-trend Easter styles. Sasha is in cozy stretchy, thin nautical striped separates that are super affordable from Zara, that has flared culottes and a sweet, cross-body picnic purse for stashing Easter finds. Sparkly sneakers are a nod to the trend of a designer sneaker paired with nearly anything—Go for the sparkle!
Consider head-to-toe denim starting with a tie atop a jean shirt and pants from Marshalls! Tip: wearing jeans is fine for Easter as long a they are new and not distressed—that’s one hole the Easter bunny doesn't want to hop down!
Lastly, Fiona with her jumpsuit from Abercrombie is a trifecta of trend: it’s a jumpsuit, it’s yellow—THEcolor of the season and it’s striped! And hey it has cute pockets too for holding treats!
