Pretty Polka-Dotted Pieces For Spring

Your little one will be seeing spots with these adorable dotted duds for kids.

By Savannah Birnbaum

It’s easy to get bogged down fashion-wise when trudging through the last freezing gasps of winter. It seems post-holiday trends call for a dotty solution to February blues! So why not bury the all-black ensembles and opt for polka-dotted pieces to help ring in spring and say goodbye to snow? Little ones can banish cold-weather melancholy in a pinch by connecting the dots to power play with patterns.


Something Sweet: For the little girl who has everything, try Cambridge Satchel Company for J.Crew’s Polka-Dot Satchel. The perfect gift, this little shoulder bag is a fun, kid-friendly take on a classic British style. Bold neon mixed with playful polka dots, this fun shoulder bag is like a trip to the candy store; and its head-turning brightness makes it totally worth the splurge.

Something Simple: The Gap’s Super Skinny Dot Skimmer Jeans are any mini fashion guru’s must-have this season. Paired with a bright sweater or, for those more daring, another lively print, these jeans have staying power. Patterned with a subtle pin dot, they’re not too loud, and may become a go-to staple for your mini fashionista.

Something Warm: This lovely little number by Oeuf conjures up images of enchanted forests, singing flowers, and talking rabbits. The Mushroom Hat is a fantastically playful addition to any wardrobe, and will get your little one through the last chills of winter. Topped with this mushroom cap, your munchkin will be set for a brisk gallivant in the park.

Something Waterproof: The 3 Pommes Waterproof Grey and White Spotted Raincoat will cheer up those rainy-day blues–and proves to be the perfect puddle-jumping companion. This playful rain jacket allows maximum visibility on dark days, as you’ll be able to spot her spots in any crowd! Tiny heart-shaped buttons complement showers of bright white dots to create an absolutely adorable waterproof solution for drizzly afternoons.
