    dinosaur figurine and illustrated book? Check.

    Spiderman t-shirt and rainboots? Check.

    Enough attitude to rock hot pink floral print shorts? Check.

    Cutest thing ever? Absolutely. Make it your own, little man.

    So great! Skirts are more comfy if you aren't inhibited by them. My younger cousin use to wear them all the time when she was little… not because they were 'pretty' but because they were better for climbing trees with:).

    I like to see a little kid who isn't afraid to wear some "girly" things. He'll be an interesting dresser for it when he grows up. And the tough Spider Man gear contrasts beautifully with the florals and the curls on top. :)

    the contrast between masculine (spider-man) and feminine (floral skirt) is so in-your-face. and the spider-man on spider-man works because they are of a different scale. lastly, the dinosaur accessories soften its edge a bit because it shows he's playful.

    You know why we dont have anything bad to say about children? cuz they are authentic…boys are always fascinated with dinosaurs.. i used to be one of them…and im 25…im not ashamed to be who i am… and i always bring to my style something fun and kinda childish… this is supposed to be you… trends are so not right if they cannot fit you….. if we keep our authenticity when we grow up….we will never fail… hes a spider man lover.. fashion is language thats what he is sayin now…so…what do you have to say? who are you? this is what fashion's all about…..let's take this not just as a cute little boy..which he definetly is… but lets take this as an example…. the things we lost along the way…. and this will always make me smile….

    absolutely adorable. makes me nostalgic for a time when none of us were so wrapped up in caring, when we saw no reason why it would not be perfectly acceptable and not at all incongruous to wear whatever stuck our fancy just because.
    at the age of four, i was obsessed with Aladdin. i made myself a turban that i wore everywhere for about 3 months out of a purple silk Hermes scarf of my mother's. this photo reminds me of that time.

    This kid is seriously ahead of the curve. I wear skirts and have done so for a while, but I work in fashion–it's much different. I hope his mother lets him keep playing. Sensational looks that would alarm at an older age (and probably leave one looking homeless), but coupled with youth and mirth provide such a delightful and enjoyable picture.

    Gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous!! My three year old son wears a skirt pretty much every day and reading all the positive comments here make me feel so good about the way he rocks out his own little world.

    Bravo to the parent(s) who let this kid wear what he wants! How many of us had that freedom when we were small?

    Kid knows what he likes and what looks good on him. I'm still figuring all that out for myself!

    Brilliant photo, too. Nicely done, Mr Sartorialist. You could win a prize with this. Really.

    So sweet!! Really clothes for a child – not like these ‘stylish’ clothes which make a child look like a miniature of an adult.
