High-end clothing and accessories aren’t just for the Carrie Bradshaws of the world. The designers showcased at children’s fashion fair Pitti Bimbo, a bi-yearly event in Florence, Italy, prove that garb for little ones can be just as chic. Unfortunately, some of the pieces can run pretty steep–especially when you consider how much your kiddo grows each year!
Don’t worry, though–even if you’d rather save than splurge, your child doesn’t have to dress like a Plain Jane. Here, we’ve put together looks modeled after some of our favorite Pitti Bimbo fashions shown at past fairs. Your little one will be ready to hit the runway in no time! Click the “Off the Rack” images to shop.
On the Runway: This Miss Bluemarine dress, modeled in January 2013, is perfect for the girl who loves all things pink (and has somewhere super fancy to go!).
Off the Rack: Florals and bows? Check and check. This Youngland frock from Sears also has the satin look of the designer dress, but it’ll only cost you…wait for it…$13!
On the Runway: He’ll stand out in the crowd when he sports a neon yellow polo! Classic khakis and a grown-up blazer make for a “brunch at the club” look. This outfit, shown in June 2013, is by Miss Grant.
Off the Rack: These pieces are all great basics, so stock up and replicate this look at a minimal cost. Pair the OshKosh polo ($11-$13.20, Diapers.com) with jeans during cooler months. To make the look more feminine, girls may enjoy wearing this similar-looking blazer, also by OshKosh, over a dress ($18, Target).
On the Runway: Anchors aweigh! The nautical look goes high-fashion with this Philippe Plein dress, which was shown at the most recent fair this past June.
Off the Rack: It’s patriotic-looking and summery just like its runway counterpart, but this anchor dress is super affordable. ($32, Zappos)

A woman can never have too many handbags. A clutch for date night, a tote for the beach, a purse for day-to-day activities…the list goes on.
