This is just as much the case for your little ones as it is for the grownups, of course.

This season, make sure your children look picture perfect no matter what’s on the calendar with one of the latest looks in children’s dress shoes. Not only are they sensible and value-conscious enough for you, but your children will love the way they look and feel as well.

Sparkly in Sequins

If you have a little girl at home, then it probably goes without saying that she loves any opportunity to wear something sparkly, especially when it comes to her shoes. What better way to help her feel magical and princess-like for any occasion?

This season, treat the little girl in your life to a beautiful pair of sequined dress shoes like this lovely silver flat from Rachel Kids. Plenty of twinkly sequins and a silver bow accent will leave her looking fairy tale perfect in every last commemorative photo. A padded footbed and flexible faux leather uppers will ensure she’s comfortable as well.

This year, look for options like this black patent leather ballet flat from Capelli. Pretty daisy-patterned cut-outs help add a welcome seasonal touch to the look of the shoe. Special touches like a decorative bow and a charm embellishment help this shoe stand out in all the right ways. Plus, padded footbeds and flexible outsoles ensure that this shoe is as comfortable as it is cute.

After all, wingtips are time-honored classics for a reason. They’re distinguished, polished, and they look fantastic with absolutely everything.

Don’t make the mistake of thinking wingtips are just for the stylish men in your life. Children’s wingtips are the perfect shoe to get the littlest man of the house looking like a million dollars this season. Think soft but durable suedes in classic tones like dove, chocolate, or taupe.
