Shopping for kids is always fun for parents. You can pick the brightest of colours and loudest of prints, and yet, kids can carry them off effortlessly. But it can also be hard to find adorable (and affordable) clothes that your kids will love. After all, kids today are more fashion forward than ever and are cued in on the latest trends, maybe even more than you are. That’s why, we bring to you 5 on-point styling tips for your little boys and girls that you’ll both love!
For Your Little Princess
Dresses are every little girl’s favourite! And a skater dress in Crayola bright colours or summery floral prints is perfect for any occasion. Steer clear of synthetic fabrics and pick these in cotton to keep your child cool in the summer.
Printed pants are so much fun and when paired with a solid t-shirt or top, they look great. Depending on your kid’s temperament and liking, you can go for either subtle or bold prints. But make sure the pants are well-fitted with tapered legs for ankle length pants and a slight flare for cropped pants. FYI, camo prints are our personal favourite this season and give your little girl a slightly edgy look.
Whoever said plaid is for boys was lying! Plaid looks great on little girls too, especially when it is in the form of a cute shirtdress. Opt for one with fun patches to make it look even cooler.
Separates work well for adults and kids alike as they let you mix and match with ease. And for a preppy look, which is really in this season, we suggest polos in candy colours paired with pleated skirts for your lovely little lady She’d look adorable!
They are a must, especially in summer! A denim dungaree is super versatile and can easily be reinvented by pairing it with different t-shirts. A romper on the other hand is cute as a button and looks great on little girls. While picking a romper, go for pastel shades and summery prints and you’ll princess would love it!
For Your Little Prankster
Boys love t-shirts, since they are easy to put on and fun to play in. No wonder they are wardrobe staples. This season, go for bold and bright colours with graphic prints. We especially love tees with fun text and captions on them for little boys.
Shorts and three-fourths are summer essentials. But instead of boring checks or solids, this summer give them a printed twist. Pair them with a solid tee or a shirt, and your little boy would look like a total stunner.
You cannot not have denims in a kid’s (or your own) wardrobe. So what’s new here? Well, kids have also caught on to the distressed denims bandwagon. Also, another style making the rounds for little boys is denims with patches on them. Both look great for everyday wear and your kiddo would love them!
These long sleeved t-shirts look sporty and boys love them! Go for the original two-tone combination in bright summery hues or play with stripes. Either way, your kid would look great in them.
Another sporty wardrobe staple for kids gets a trendy makeover this season. They are in brighter hues, even printed and come in a more skinny fit. You can also opt for denim joggers for everyday wear.
