Smart is definitely (cool).

We asked Baltimore’s favorite kid boutiques to style some of their customers for back-to-school. The result? Some smartly dressed kids and a bit of each boutique’s flavor in every look. From preppy to edgy, toddler to tween — there’s something for every pint-sizer in your life.

All of the featured pieces qualify for Maryland’s Tax-Free Shopping week, so shop locally for some amazing clothes and save!
