    These kids are more than alright they are fantastic! One someone questions the family-friendliness (or less-ness) of NYC all they have to do is look at these pictures. They should be on a I (heart) NY billboard. Style confidence and glowing children. Gotta a love a New York City kid.

    My first impression was: ‘man, I hope I have kids that cool’ then it was ‘man, if I did, that would mean my kids are cooler than me…’ kind of like if jesus realized he in fact could heat up a burrito so hot even He couldn’t eat it…sounds great at first, then just a tiny depressing…

    Both so different and yet so fantastic.

    Girl on top mixes so many fun elements but maybe what’s best is the joyous look on her cute face. Check out those blue nails!

    The kid on the bottom rockin’ the sk8er look is really so cool. Not sure if it’s a boy or a girl but either way it works. If it’s a girl…. WOW! When so many little girls take their style cues from HSM it’s delightful to see one bold enough to forge a different path.

    Makes me wanna go get knocked-up.

    I LOVE to see kids expressing themselves in their clothes. These kids are obviously getting support for who they are and confident in their personalities. It’s great to see their personal style reflected in their clothes. Too easy for girls to think they should wear what other girls are wearing.

    You know, that first picture of the girl in purple is really a stunning outfit but…

    I sort of hate seeing this. I suppose these kids might be just at the age where they might do this by themselves, but I have a strong feeling it’s their parents that force this on them and decide what they wear. This age is maybe ok, and it’s good for youth to develop their own style, but I hate seeing 3,4,5,6 year olds dressed in elaborate adult outfits that their parents have obviously prepared. It gets them too worried about image at an age where they should be wearing dirty old sweats and playing in parks finding worms.

    hate to be the serious one… again perhaps these children are old enough and have made this choice for themself, but just wanted to make that point for all sartorialists – don’t force your sense of style on your young kids… let them be kids for awhile.

    I’m in love with the first little purple fairy…but I’d hate to think that this kids are daily made to loose their valuable time in making looks and poses instead of playing, running and having fun…Are there really parents who reinforce image slavery in their children at such a young age? That’s messed up!!

    You out there wondering if kids can have “their own” style: I can certify that YES, they can! And I truly believe that these kids don’t have parents who dresses them up. The style thing lies in their personal choices, maybe in just the one thing a parent would take away because not “perfect”. I myself tend to be to matchy-matchy with my girls aged 7 and 8 – But I have realised that their own sense of style is better then my trying to make them cool, so they pretty much find their own way. With some strange results, of course, but most of the time ok and from time to time just brilliant.
    As are these two!

    Very well put. And though one should NEVER judge children, their parents are another matter. The adorable child in the bottom pic clearly has been dressed as a mini-me hipster by her parents. It’s a little offputting. But, clearly, both great kids.

    to anon 1:26-
    As the parent of a 7 year old girl and 8 year old boy, I can testify that (some) kids definitely have their own style at that age. My daughter has been dressing herself like a mini Lynn Yaeger since the age of 2, with crazy color combos and interesting layers.
    My son favors a plaid fedora and patent leather loafers for all occasions, and recently asked for a gold tooth and a monocle for his birthday. Obviously, the parents have to buy the clothes, but you’d be surprised what some kids can put together on their own.

    It’s a bit worrying that so many adults on here approve;
    Kids doing their thing style wise, misunderstood by their parents is a good way to push things forward.

    A generational difference is a good thing as there’s nothing more depressing than a child dressed identikit to their parents.

    AND… OI SART! Didn’t you take any shots in London???

    I like how the little girl’s coat is falling off of her arms, like she couldn’t hold still long enough for her mother to get it all the way on her before she ran outside, looking for adventure. That’s what I see.

    Picking your own clothes and having fun with style is admirable at any age, but I hope at this age that the only opinion they care about is their own. You can say that if you can’t experiment with style as a child when can you, but the other side of that coin is this: if you can’t dress like crap and have fun without worrying about appearance and grass stains as a kid, when can you?
