We don’t dress our tykes in miniature tuxedos for weddings, no, they’ll be wearing a button-on bobby suits. And there’s no occasion that doesn’t call for our sweet-as-sugar little girls to don their best smocked dress with a hair bow to match. It seems children’s wardrobe essentials are just a bit more classic down here. Whether we’re talking monogrammed children’s clothes, smocked children’s clothes, or children’s clothes for playtime; there’s a certain look that makes it easy to spot a Southern child in a crowd of the pint-sized skinny jeans so popular elsewhere. Our affinity for timeless styles allow for a son to wear a hand-me-down not only from his big brother, but one from Dad’s childhood too. Southern children’s clothing stores and designers, like the ones featured here, tailor to this fact and make their clothes durable enough to suit multiple generations. Take a look through these essentials and make sure all your favorite little ones have a suitably Southern wardrobe.
Southern children’s clothing is something all its own.
