Wendy Bellissimo And JCPenney Make Kids’ Clothes Chic And Affordable
Chic, stylish and affordable are what came to mind at our preview of Wendy Bellissimo’s children’s clothing and furniture collaboration launch with JCPenney. After years of consistently making mommy and baby dreams come true with chic nurseries and fashionable clothing for celebrity babies, it is a delight to have such elegance available at prices that accommodate everyone’s budget. Despite the reasonable price tags, the details, fabric, sophistication and whimsy were definitely not spared.
The color palette was predominantly that of earth tones with splashes of red, pink and blue. “I am inspired by earth tones for everything from the décor in my home to the clothes I design,” says Bellissimo. Her biggest inspirations though are her four daughters who she had all within a five-year span. “My daughters help me with new ideas,” says Bellissimo. “I listen to their ideas and love their involvement.”
Admiring all of the details in the clothing would make you forget that you were even looking at children’s clothing to begin with! Elbow patches matching the pocket trim, wooden toggle buttons on the cardigans and coats, and newsboy caps will transform your little boy into a dashing little man.
Rosette overlays and cap sleeve dresses, swing style knit sweaters and faux fur jackets will make any little girl feel like a true princess.
If style is a way of telling the world who you are, then teaching children the importance of fashion is a lesson worth learning. And knowing that you will not break the bank while doing so is the highlight of it all.
