We Love Lucy

You may be willing to endure pain for beauty, but hopefully your tot is years away from adopting that attitude. That’s why British-born Lucy Sykes Rellie, Marie Claire’s editor at large turned children’s clothing designer (and yes, twin of fellow New York It girl Plum Sykes), partnered with Stride Rite to make trustworthy yet exquisite footwear for toddlers. From Mary Janes to oxfords, the shoes—done in materials like nubuck, metallic leather, rawhide, and exclusive Liberty of London prints—show the same whimsical elegance and refinement as her kids’ line. And to ensure that your bébé’s feet will develop properly, each pair—like all Stride Rite shoes—undergoes testing for the perfect fit. $38-$60; striderite.com.
