Trends 2013

I have researched the key emerging trends for womenswear for 2013 and rounded up a kid friendly version of each trend.

 Trend: Relaxed Shorts

Comfy and relaxed, this trend was all over the New York catwalks!

Perfect fit for girls that don't want fussy tight fitting clothing, especially in the warmer months, these relaxed shorts from BoBo Choses are great. Team with an equally fluid shirt in a delicate colour & print and cute ballet pumps this outfit deserves a great summer!

Trend: Black and White

Whether it was Ralph Lauren, Oscar De La Renta or Michael Kors, black and white was seen in full effect across the fashion weeks.

There are quite a few interpretations of this trend for girls, but this dress from River Island embodies a few trends in one, stripe, contour lines and a fluid skater dress! Perfect with white pumps for a 50's inspired look!

 Trend: Stripes

Every colour goes and the stripe is placed at every angle! This trend is fun, bright and easy! We all own a stripey item!

I've said it before and no doubt I will say it again, but the best label for great quality stripey clothing for kids in all manner of colours is from label Katvig. I can't choose which item to post, so I selected a few items.

 All above items are from Katvig @ Nordic Kids.

Trend: Beading / Embellishing

Something for the older child that won't eat the beads! The beading / embellishing trend is super pretty and delicate! Look for tees with detailing on the shoulder or a dress with a bib front bead placement and team with harder DM style boots for a edgy look or beaded pumps for the OTT look of the trend!

This Limited Edition beaded playsuit from River Island is spot on!

Trend: Sporty Dresses

Think skater dresses or tennis dresses! And the only place to go for such items is the king of all stuff sport/fashion - American Apparel! Their lovely simple skater style dresses for girls would look amazing with baseball boots and baseball hat! Toooooooo cool!

American Apparel is the best place to go for this trend for both kids and adults!

Trend: Flat shoes

I love that this trend is so acessable to girls of Millies age! Whether Converse high tops or ballet pumps flats rule for any age!

These bright blue brogue detailed flats from Boden are great and would brighten up any outfit!
