Boot scootin’ fun! Nothing says fall like a new pair of warm, cozy suede boots perfect for the needs of a toddler. With the trend of mid-calf boots back for another season, the children’s clothing market is full of fashion-forward designs, ranging from simple yet stylish to chic yet comfortable.
For girls, the look of the suede boot is often paired with a knee-length dress — much like Luisa Danbi Grier wore during her recent visit to Mr. Bones Pumpkin Patch — matched with tights or leggings. For little girls and boys on the go, parents can tuck skinny jeans into the boots to achieve a sophisticated sense of style. Of course, for kids simply looking for comfort — among them James Wilkie Broderick — a pair of sweat pants matched with the boots also works just as well!
Out with his mom Gwen Stefani and dad Gavin Rossdale, a sassy Kingston James McGregor showed off his pair of Minnetonka’s 3-Layer Fringe Boot ($60). We are loving the fringed detail! A little rain didn’t stop Ella Rae and her mom Rhea Durham from taking a stroll in New York City earlier this month. Her feet were certainly kept warm and dry with her pair of brown suede boots. Keeping casual during her family flight with dad Jason Priestley and mom Naomi Lowde-Priestley, little Ava Veronica sported a pair of fur-topped boots at the airport.
