Get Stuff We Love
Easter Sunday is just around the corner (April 5), but there's no need to panic when it comes to dressing the family. Amy E. Goodman, lifestyle editor at zulily.com, visited TODAY Friday to share the hottest kids trends for spring that won't break your budget. Prepare for extreme adorableness.
Lace and embroidery
Forget the days of itchy lace dresses that your daughter can't wait to ditch. Nowadays, kids clothiers have incorporated soft yarn into the construction so that clothes feel comfortable throughout the day. And is there anything sweeter than floral embroidery? We love the details on this patterned dress.

Retro geo prints
These bright and fun designs take a cue from the past with retro-inspired prints. Pinstrips, plaid and old-school patterns in pastels fully embody the feeling of spring. And just try to resist those mini suspenders!
Play Happy Dress, $42 on sale for $35, HannaAndersson.com; Orange & Blue Plaid Suspenders $28, StinkyMcGee.com.
Looking for something trendy yet tasteful? Simply connect the polka dots. The best part of this simple pattern is that it works well for both boys and girls, helping you nail the coordinated—yet not too matchy-matchy—look for your whole family.
Kyla Polka Dotted Dress, $30, Joe-Ella.com; Polka Dot Button-Down Shirt, $26 on sale for $20, Carter’s.
Sometimes, you just need a splash of old-school cool. Solid separates, like this sleek navy blazer and Frank Sinatra-esque fedora, work like a charm. Or try this simple, yet trendy color-blocked shirt that works so well with Bermuda shorts in a slightly darker shade. For the little ladies, a tropical or floral-print dress will always look lush and beautiful. Add a pop of color with a thin belt and you've got a great outfit!
Great Wavelengths Dress, $54.99, ModCloth.com; Color-block Shirt, $16.94 on sale for $16, oldnavy.com; Navy Blazer, $49.95, hm.com.
Gingham and checks
We've already established that gingham is a huge trend for adults this spring, but don't discount the little ones. Whether on a coat or a shirt, check patterns are a style mainstay.
Green Checked Shirt, $24.95 on sale for $12.48, Gymboree.com; Girls’ Gingham Trench, $39.90, uniqlo.com.
