A New Take On The "Sunday Best" Outfit

When dressing your kids for semi-formal gatherings, religious services or a family portrait, their "Sunday Best" is the most reliable (and predictable) option. However, an outfit like this can be bland and downright embarrassing if it's covered in bows and lace. Why fall into this trap when more fashionable options are readily available?

Let's tackle your little princess first. Start her off in a classic plaid dress that's totally chic. The D&G Dolce & Gabbana Toddler Plaid Dress is made from neutral plaid-patterned cotton/elastene/nylon and features a high-waisted belt, patch pockets, rounded neck and sleeveless arms. Your budding fashionista will be quite comfy with its' lined interior against her skin. Available in sizes 2, 3, & 4 for $250 via Saks.

Keep her pretty little feet looking just as stylish as the rest of her with these Patent MaryJane shoes from Prada Linea Rossa. Available in black or red (shown), these quintessential childhood staples are updated with practical rubber soles and Velcro closure. $175 via Saks.

No self-respecting fashionista would leave home without a proper coat. Whether it's the dead of winter or just a chilly autumn evening, the D&G Dolce & Gabbana Toddler Peacoat will prove to be the ultimate in sophisticated cover-ups. This navy, wool-blend coat boasts a button front with belt accent. Available in sizes 2, 3 & 4 for $240 via Saks.

Now your precious little social butterfly can hold her head up high as she mingles with the rest of her kiddie fashionista peers. Her "Sunday Best" never looked so good.
