Mia Belle Girls
If Mia Belle Girls’ pre-styled outfits for girls look made for the ‘gram, you wouldn’t be wrong — the Miami-based brand is a social media darling with more than 90K followers on the platform. While many of the styles skew girly — think ruffle-sock ankle boots and tulle dresses — you’ll also find pint-sized versions of items your favorite influencer would wear. The too-cool pieces come in sizes 2T-10Y, and most everything is under $100.
