My oldest son loves to dress up and it drives me crazy because I do not see any need for a bow tie and blazer jacket in a pre-k classroom. I love that the clothing from Fore!! Axel & Hudson has that simple elegant style but also does it in a way that feels casual enough for any event. This is a happy compromise for the two of us. I keep looking through the entire collection for a piece that I don't love and I can't find one. That is such a reverse experience for me - typically I'm trying to find just one piece I don't hate. It seems to me that they all instantly give your little one that smooth, cool without even trying look - especially if you top it off with one of the hats.
You can purchase the collection from Bloomingdales and Neiman Marcus. I also found it for sale online at Best Dressed Kids, Izzy and Ash, and Cute Toot. The prices are reasonable too - especially if you are in a situation like me and the clothing you buy just gets passed down from boy to boy. I always try to factor in how many children will actually wear the item and then make sure I buy something that is timeless - that way in 3 years when Jackson gets Connor's cardigan it still looks very cute. Not to mention quality is pretty important if you want it to last over time - since I'm pretty sure our baby number 3 will also be a boy - any clothing that I purchase for my kids will be getting plenty of use in our home; so I need to be certain that I'm buying a top I want to have to see worn again & again! I'm confident that the clothing from Fore!! Axel & Hudson are creations I will be happy to see reappear.
