So, rounding off a month of celebrating ‘Children in Fashion’ we’ve a short guide to help keep your kiddie in style, bringing you a few outfit ideas for whichever occasion you’re headed to – be it a formal party, casual play date or anything in between. Find it below and see if can’t put your mini style maven/maverick in the running for best-dressed girl or boy of the season…
Smartly Does It
For formal occasions, girls can keep things simple and chic with a pretty dress, loose cover-up and ballerina flats, adding faux pearls to give the look a classic finish. For boys, it’s about updating the usual suit-and-tie look by trading in a blazer for suspenders and experimenting with colour and prints. Just finish off with a classic pair of brogues and he’ll be the better-styled boy of the bunch.
For a casual day outdoors, girls can pay homage to the nineties by throwing a pair of practical dungarees over a lacey top, set with a cool pair of Converse, of course. Boys should throw a printed shirt over a plain tee for cool points, rocked with a pair of chinos and boots for a winning ensemble.
Cute & Care-Free
A bright summer dress and pair of statement sandals will make for the perfect go-to for your princess – and the best bet is to go colourful with bits of embellishment, in case your causal day of fun evolves into a quick bite to eat out. And echoing the thought for boys is a bold, boisterous look that looks stylish but still remains pretty practical via a pair of sturdy Converse.
