Superhero Chic

Millie is wearing... Superhero Chic!

On the catwalk it seems that Superhero inspiration is everywhere! This was seen in abundance from Jeremy Scott for A/W 11:

What with the new Batman and Captain America films soon to be released, t-shirts and Superhero inspired apparel is available everywhere! This trend is just perfect for all kids big or small! 

Key designs to look out for: 'stars', 'stripes' and 'lightening'. 

Look out for pieces from high street stores, especially H&M, Zara and even supermarkets such as Asda!

But I love these tees from a company called "babypop" that are listing in www.etsy.com :

You don't have to dress up in full on costume, just take a few pieces that have the inspiration! Zara have a fantastic shirt for this season that highlights this:

Or the funky trousers from Nordic Kids:

Or these items that are to be sure to give super powers:

Trends for AW 11/12

Silhouette give a nod to the Sporty Retro

The next trend prediction for girls for AW 11/12 is just so "Millie is wearing...!"

Again I will outline a few key details and then show exampes of actual products in store in the sales now to carry through to AW 11/12.

The next trend mood is a desire to stand out with a humorous spin. Vintage pieces are found for an energetic style more demonstrative than nostalgic!

Urban Silhouttes with retro oriental styling

The colour palette swings both between calm and spectacular, in sassy harmonies with a predominance of reddish hues. Fabrics also play with contrasts with a mix of matt and shine.

Take influences from Street Ballet

I love this great dress by Plastisock from www.nordickids.co.uk (below) it has a lovely oriential feel to it, but in a retro way. Team this with some skinny jeans, leg warmers and flat boots for that sport relax look.

 Dress from Plastisock at www.nordickids.co.uk was £59.99 Now £30.00

Cool Websites!

I am forever looking at new childrenswear websites and sometimes you come across some that are just so beautiful.

One site that has amazing art direction is: www.softgallery.dk

Trends for AW 11/12

If you know the trends for the next season you can buy key items in the sales now that can be carried over! To help with this I will outline the trend forecasts for AW 11/12.

The first trend to appear is that of the "Alternative lifestyle". Key to this trend is multilayer and comfort being important for that outdoor lifestyle.

Lighter colourways seem to be apparent to this trend with lightly blanched and muffled naturals livened up by strong luminous and graphic accents which are delicate with florals and plant motifs.

Fabrics that are natural and light, contrasting with boiled wools and fleeces, whilst reversed jacquards give clothes a blanket spirit. I love this blanket coat from womenswear label Mociun.

The silhouettes are that of country smocks and multi-layers but still with a natural and feminine look.
I found this beautiful smock style dress in Zara's sale, it covers alot of the trends of the alternative lifestyle. It is already layered with the beautiful petticoat, and is a lovely soft natural earthy colourway.

              Dress Zara S/S 11 Sale Was: £25.99 Now: £15.99

To get it back on trend for A/W 11/12, team it with some bold neon yellow tights and a heavy knitted coat.

I bought these dungaree shorts for Millie from a great vintage shop called Cow (wearecow.blogspot.com). They have shop outlets in Nottingham, Shefield and Birmingham.

These great shorts are perfect for the summer, teamed with a cropped stripe top and vintage glasses to complete the look!

Look around vintage shops, websites or ebay for vintage childrenswear finds!
