Playwear with Style from Little Warrior

Ponchos, Rompers, and Tees for Tots

little warrior kids!

Your mini caped crusader would rock his superhero getup seven days a week if you’d let him. And you just might, if it weren’t for your judgmental mother-in-law.

Win the battle of the wardrobe with the help of Little Warrior. Local designer Maggie Fox and partner Mitra Khayyam blur the line between playwear and high style with their new line of kid couture. Made in L.A., the unisex pieces are overdyed for extra softness and display original prints with stitched details.

The saturated pastel hues, Southwest-inspired patterns, and one-of-a-kind shapes (faves include the Chimayo hooded poncho and extra-roomy romper) evoke hardworking prairie days and wild desert nights.

At least one of which your mother-in-law will approve of.

Available online at littlewarriorkids.com, $22-$72.
