Royal Baby Must-Haves From Zulily

Looking for cute spring clothes for the baby in your life? E-tailer Zulily has everything you need for the Royal Baby in your life (while staying on budget!). These choices are super cute!

Whether shopping for their own baby or looking for the perfect baby shower or “sip & see” gift for friends and family, Zulily launches a new store every day including everything one needs for a baby, from princess worthy outfits, to smocked rompers to toys fit for a king – all at brag worthy prices. 

Zulily Senior Buyer of Infant Apparel, Erica Williams, has shared some of the seasons top styles you might see the future royal sporting, as she partners with hundreds of brands (such Hudson Bay, Aden and Anais, and Laura Ashley), helping to launch thousands of products, specifically for baby:

·         Peter Pan Collars – Pair this classic style with tights and a skirt or with a under a sweater and your baby will be vying for best dressed.

·         Rompers and Smocking – These classics made a comeback with Prince George and Princess Charlotte, and you’re sure to see the newest member of the Royal family following suit.

·         Delicate Lace – Lace detailing around the collar and sleeves will be seen everywhere this year and if the newest royal is a princess, she will be donning this delicate detailing.

·         White Layette – Head back-to-basics with white layette sets to bring your baby home. This look also nods to Meghan’s laid back, California-chic style. Don’t worry, there’s always bleach!
