In anticipation of the warm, hazy stretch of summer we have been prepping outfit ideas for our mini fashionista’s wardrobes. From clothes perfect for a holiday abroad to a special summer event, we have selected the freshest items you need to add to their clothing collection, all in the brightest shades of the season. Tick all the season’s trends with rainbow, frills, nautical, appliqué and stripes included in our summer edit...
Playing with textures, shapes and bringing fashion to life with 3D appliqué, it’s all about the kooky details in the girls SS16 trend stakes. No girl should be without this Little Marc Jacobs asymmetric ‘Miss Marc’ dress, which has an edgy asymmetric shoulder, a trend we have seen all over the older catwalks. Add a stand out bow appliqué to one shoulder, and she’s ready for her summer holiday! Kate Mack also gives a nod towards the appliqué trend, with flowers filling the torso of this stunning racer back dress. We love the mix of textures in this dress, with smooth cotton doused by layers of fluffy tulle to make a lovely tutu style skirt. Billieblush and Kenzo have used classic items from their collections and updated them in bright shades of mouth watering pink and mint green.
The nautical trend will always be a classic style favourite for boys – simple, fresh and modern, it flourishes in the summer used by brands such as Lyle & Scott and Ralph Lauren. This nautical striped t-shirt shown below comes in red, white and navy and looks great paired with jeans or bermuda shorts. We think this t-shirt would look amazing paired with white cotton Ralph Lauren shorts - a classic and versatile item in his wardrobe he can wear again and again. If he prefers something more edgy, buy him tropical print swim shorts by Little Marc Jacobs, perfect for the beach. Keeping within the blue colour theme, we think this animated Moncler surf t-shirt would make a casual yet cool night time look paired with shorts.
Colours and prints of the rainbow are set to be big deal in women’s wear this year... and it doesn’t stop at adult’s fashion. Numerous designers have used rainbow inspiration in their collections, including Little Marc Jacobs who works it into their baby range. This multi-coloured romper below is perfect for a warm day by the pool - in gorgeous stripes of sunny yellow, warm orange and cool blue. Another mini me style we love for baby girls this season is frills. This bright swimsuit comes in a pink and orange ombré effect, with the sweetest ruffle straps and skirt... too cute not to buy! For your baby boy, choose Timberland swim shorts in an adorable navy and white stripe and Aztec print short sleeve cotton t-shirt, to keep him cool and comfortable all day long.
