I have a lifelong passion for preppy fashion with a fresh, nautical touch. The more classic the better! Which may explain why I’m kind of mad for Oscar de la Renta’s latest kid’s collection! Loaded with traditional plaids, sailing inspired details, preppy blazers and pretty dresses, I wish my closet had been full of these fashions when I was a kid. With the 4th of July just around the corner, these looks sport patriotic fashion that is as timeless as it is modern. Click through for 10 of my favorites!
