Downtown Velvet

When you think of velvet, a visit to grandma's house likely comes to mind; however, this season, velvet is being dressed down to give it a downtown feel. There are two ways to go: Try sporty silhouettes (like our Bebe Organic pants featured at left), or pair a velvet dress with combat boots or metallic sneakers.

Urban Alpine

Gone are the days where ski sweaters were relegated to the slopes. This season, your mini can also opt to wear his Fair Isle knit on a brisk day in the city. Try dressing the sweater up with cords and box-fresh, white sneakers.

Daytime Sequins

Who says she can only wear her beloved sequins to a party? To achieve the perfect daytime look, combine the dress with graphic sneakers by Pop Shoes. Another way to work sequins into daytime is with a sequin bomber over a pair of jeans. Glitter + daytime is the secret formula to being the life of the party, err, classroom.

Effortless Plaid

A plaid shirt is one of fall's most versatile trends. Wear it untucked with corduroys for school or sweats for an after-school playdate. This classic is a seamless transitional piece you'll want to stock up on.

#

Dark Florals

Say "goodbye" to summertime florals in pastel hues and shop darker ones when the weather turns cold. Girly girls can still rock these frocks with Mary Jane flats, but we suggest L'Amour Shoes' Stella Patent Wingtip Boot for an edgier look.

Statement Puffers

Puffers have become the new statement pieces thanks to metallics, bold prints and camo patterns. Keep the rest of the look low-key because it is the puffer's time to shine.
