Special Occasion Dresses are Memorable

When the event is a little more special, opt for formal dress to match the occasion. Party dresses bring on the glitter, beads, lace and shine. High-low hems and layers of tulle add extra pizzazz.

Rompers and Jumpsuits are Dresses' Cute Cousins

Not every girl wants to or feels like wearing a dress sometimes. But, you still want her to look cute and somewhat fancy for certain occasions. Meet the trendiest alternatives to dresses—jumpsuits and rompers. Jumpsuits are one-piece pantsuits, basically. Rompers are the shortened versions for warmer-weather wear. Both can be designed as sleeveless, halter, short-sleeve or long-sleeve. Perfect for wriggling babies—rompers and jumpsuits tend to stay in place unlike shirts that bunch up or pants that fall down. Little girls love the freedom it gives them to be active (yay cartwheels!) without wearing the standard shorts and t-shirt all the time. Tweens gravitate toward these silhouettes to dress like their older sisters and idols.
