2008 Best Children's Clothing

Wild Child

Tons of children’s boutiques overflow with precious, sit-and-look-pretty outfits, missing the salient fact that sitting still (let alone pretty) is not in the average tyke’s skill set. For clothes that can crawl, wriggle, roll, and cartwheel—and look good at the same time—count on Wild Child’s broad selection of basics, led by Petit Bateau and Me Too, plus cool lines like Small Paul and Tea and hard-to-find boys’ wear. Grass stains not included.
