There are not nearly as many styles, options and choices when it comes to fashions for boys. My staples for keeping my son looking stylish and cutting edge is Ralph Lauren polo shirts, jeans and Converse (now also his cool Yo Gabba Gabba Vans). When I step foot into the children’s department at most stores, I am bombarded with phenomenal clothes for girls ranging from tutus to skirts and dresses to adorable shirts, cozy sweaters, bikinis and swimsuits and must-have accessories. Yet I am beyond disappointed with the sparse selection of merchandise in the boys section. Most of the pieces are not special enough to warrant the high prices attached to them.
Somehow I joined Boys Be Cool’s (BBC) Facebook page (not sure who to give credit to) and I am constantly being introduced to innovative, wonderful brands for boys including Micro Me, Tom & Drew and knucklehead clothing.
Boys Be Cool is a unique and one of a kind style & shopping resource where the boys rule and style-conscious parents receive valuable information on where to find unique, awesome and affordable duds for their boys and how to style the most dapper and hippest outfits for less.

The company reviews new collections, comb the sales, search through the endless online inventories, scoring the best deals.
Boys Be Cool has had “summer” and “fall” seasonal “madness gift extravaganzas”. For both of these evening online Facebook events, I stayed up way past my bedtime but it was so worth losing some beauty sleep to score some great t-shirts for my son during the fabulous sponsor giveaways and online promotion codes. I highly recommend you participate in their next one – I hope the “winter” one takes place soon. I also encourage you to check out Boys Be Cool’s manifesto and rules HERE.
Founder/publisher & as she calls herself “everything else” Julia Angel had set out on her Boys Be Cool style crusade with an ambitious goal to change the bleak landscape of the boys’ fashion. Driven around the world by her insatiable wanderlust and curiosity, she had learned to absorb and embrace different styles and fashion choices blending and melting them into her very own cosmopolitan style, where everything was possible. She applies this crazy mix to styling her son’s incredible outfit. At Boys Be Cool, Julia shares her valuable skills and thrifty fashionista’s resources with other parents who believe that boys and style are not mutually exclusive. Previously, Julie was an international business development executive.
Boys Be Cool will be celebrating its second anniversary in January 2012. I am confident that this company will be around for many future decades, helping create many more generations of cool, stylish boys. (Truthfully, I must confess that I was almost hesitant to share this information with you but I realize that would be very unfair and make me very, very selfish)
