Top kids' clothing trends
When holiday shopping for your children this year, look for clothing that is comfortable, affordable and trendy. Whether you want something casual or dressy, you can find fabulous, fashionable gifts for boys and girls.
Are your kids mad for plaid? They aren't alone. From plaid skirts for girls to plaid Western shirts for boys, everything plaid is flying off the shelves. Try something a little different, like this Shaun White hoodie in blue plaid (Target, $19). Whether your boy is in kindergarten or high school, you can find the right size.
This fierce trend is popular for everyone from babies to teens. Look for leopard, zebra and other animal-print tops, dresses and accessories. You'll adore this Cherokee girls' dress with its 3/4-length sleeves, bow at the waist and fun leopard print (Target, $15). It will look cute with a pair of glossy ballet flats.
The popularity of Angry Birds is still influencing fashion. You can find sweatshirts, pajamas and, of course, tees featuring your kids' favorite birds — and the pigs, too. This Angry Birds two-piece pajama set is sure to be a hit (Target, $15).
