Catherine’s Picks for Fall

I pared down the Fall 2011 Collection to include only  the outfits mothers tell me their children wear the most. When combined with Papo’s new Vintage Collection, there are still many choices and combinations. But my hope is that this more selective assortment makes shopping for your children’s wardrobe even easier.

If my own children could still wear Papo, I’d certainly dress them in this season’s new red and navy plaid. Not only is it fresh and fun, but it’s also very versatile. For girls, start with the Kilt and the Double Ric Rac Collar Blouse with red trim. Layer on a sweater in either red, navy, or even yellow.

Match brothers in Plain Front Pants in the same plaid. Pair with a white Boy’s Button-Down Collar Shirt and a Cashmere or Half-Zip Sweater in navy. Finish the look with a Duffle Coat in navy, red, or saffron (looks great on girls, too). Or dress it up with a navy Blazer.

All of these items can be paired with other clothes from the collection, including Jeans and the Sleeveless A-Line Jumper.

I also love the Pleated Liberty Tunic Dress because it works very well for late summer and is the perfect back-to-school dress. Once the weather turns chilly, warm it up with Ribbed Tights, Velvet Sabrinas, and a Cashmere Cardigan.
