Fashion for Girls: Take stylish wardrobe stables from season to season

I received a complimentary sample of the Biscotti dress pictured in this post. I received no other compensation and any opinions expressed here are my own. For complete details, review my disclosure policy.

One of the dresses I like the most on my daughter Amareah is a color-block bottomed number from Biscotti of Biscotti and Kate Mack. This 1969 mod dress is a hip style in color-blocked ponte knit that marries bold patters of black and with with bright colors that a lot of tweens love. It’s one of those garments that fits so perfectly it appears to be made to the wearer’s specifications. And, best of all, it can take your daughter from season to season by adding classic accessories.CAM00692

Biscotti introduced this style, particularly for tweens, for her Spring line. What makes it a great choice for this age group is that it’s fun and trendy as well as comfortable and modest.

All attributes the girls, and their mothers, will mark with approval.

For Spring, your daughter can pop this little number on and add a thin, cropped sweater in a coordination color, leggings or tights and ankle boots then she’s all set to go. What about a hat and a short jean jacket with or without stockings and knee-high boots? It’s also a dress that can stand alone. If you need a quick summertime look, she can just slip into the dress, add some statement flats and run out the door.

CAM00686Here Amareah decided to play up her hair and earrings (reminiscent of the still popular 70s styles) with cloth ballet flats made with patent leather at the toes. It’s a look she pulls off well.

Notice the not-too-perfect afro with the flowered headband; the hoop earrings with dangling starts completes the look. We could have chose to dress this look up a bit, but I’m in love with the many casual choices that can be pulled off going into Summer.

Check out the Biscotti styling with shades, beach-perfect hair and Ked high-tops. It’s the ideal look for birthday parties, walking on the beach, shopping, having lunch or just hanging out. Whatever situation the tween finds herself she’ll always be comfortable and well put together.

CAM00696Moms can explore more lovely Biscotti kids’ fashions at the website BiscottiAndKateMack.com. Where they can stay tuned for sales, updates and the introduction of new lines. We moms won’t be disappointed especially when we catch of glimpse of Biscotti’s new Fall 2014 Back-to-School collection.

Including in that collection is the School of Rock collection with daisy appliqu├ęs (not shown) and the elegantly, funky Venus and Mars Collection dress (below). Since 1986, Biscotti has captured childhood enchantment with romantic and charming dress collections. Biscotti and Kate Mack styles have been featured in leading publications including The Wall Street Journal, Vogue Bambini, Women’s Wear Daily,  Child Magazine, Teen Vogue and Us Weekly. Their designs are favorites among celebrity moms including Katie Holmes, Victoria Beckham, and Heidi Klum, and in addition to their retail site can be found in department stores and upscale boutiques around the world.

Stay tuned for more of Biscotti and Kate Mack on my little model Amareah. And it’s possible her sister Anna will join her next time in showing off kids’ fashions for you.

I just had to include this picture because it’s so naturally cute and funny. Amareah was trying really hard to hold her pose despite the bee that kept getting closer and closer. Right as I clicked the bee moved and Amareah squealed; still sorta in her pose. Gotta love child models, right? They definitely make you laugh.

Until next time, stay sharp and rock your (kid’s) style.
