Frock On

In these tough economic times, investment dressing takes on a whole new meaning.

If you’re in it for the long haul, consider the latest kiddie couture from Peter Som. Made with the same exquisite details as his adult collections, the party pieces for boys and girls can be passed on to the next generation.

The navy velvet tux features grosgrain trim, a festive print lining, and velvet-covered buttons. A periwinkle organza frock — with taffeta sash and metallic French lace overlay, natch — is perfection.

And in the current market, you can consider both a safe bet.


Best & Co., at Bergdorf Goodman, 754 Fifth Avenue, between 57th and 58th Streets, seventh floor (212-872-8847 or bestandcompany.com).
