The New York childrenswear label, EGG by Susan Lazar, is a staple for any parent wanting to dress their children in modern looks that balance chic with sweet and use environmentally-friendly materials at an affordable luxury price point.
We have been fans of this fashionable, yet timeless, baby and children’s line for the longest time. So, of course, we wanted to put this brand to the test and see how their pieces held up for an average day with an active toddler! Our editor Rebecca and her daughter Isla enjoyed an afternoon outing while trying three different looks from EGG by Susan Lazar’s Summer 2018 collection.
Here are Rebecca’s 5 top takeaways!
1. We Beat the Heat.
In the summer heat, toddlers (and everyone else) are at a major risk of overheating. Lightweight, breathable cotton pieces by EGG helped keep my little one cool, and the loose-fit of EGG’s 100% cotton dresses made them the perfect option for an extra hot day!
2. Love the Prints.
Both the Brianna Aqua Llama Print Dress and Kora Purple Tiger Print Dress are designs from the Wordly Terrain summer collection by EGG, a line that inspires us to make friends with exotic animals! We can’t get enough of the funny little llamas with cute bows on a popping aqua backdrop. The tiger print is a close second for our favourite style. From a distance, the funky purple print creates almost a camouflage effect! Both prints come on baby rompers — perfect for sisters who love to match!
3. Super Comfortable
EGG’s designs have active toddlers in mind! The generous cuts offer ample room for easy movement during playtime. The hemlines of each dress were perfect for active girls that like to climb without fumbling over a long skirt. The Valerie Turquoise Short is not only a showstopper, bursting with bright blue, purple and pink in a trendy Kaleidoscope pattern, it is very comfortable! The overlapping fabric at the front of the short isn’t just stylish, the area expands allowing the leg opening to become larger when sitting and climbing — two of my toddler’s main activities. The Tabitha Peacock Tank Top is the perfect compliment for these shorts.
4. Major Compliments.
This takeaway is a little silly but well worth mentioning! As a parent, it is incredibly satisfying when strangers comment on just how stylish my toddler looks. Our afternoon, momma/daughter date took us to a favourite vegan cafe to grab a tasty smoothy, followed by a walk downtown (smelling the flowers outside storefronts) and ended with a riverside stroll — boy, did we get compliments!
5. Brand Ethos
We love that the EGG by Susan Lazar stands for the endless possibilities and potential of each and every child! As Susan says, “All eggs might look the same on the outside, but inside lays infinite possibilities.” This is truly a sentiment that we couldn’t agree with more!
