Best new kids’ clothing store
Windy City Bebe
It’s easy to find stores that treat kids’ fashions as if they’re dainty furniture too precious for real-world use. This Lake View shop brings a welcome unfussiness to the urban kiddo landscape—whimsical designs (think tiny party hats) and unusual brands (Electrik Kidz, Wakamono) at prices that won’t make you cringe when the duds wind up covered in grass stains.
