Hot Spring Fashions and Colors

Tuesday, May 4th, 2010
Josie Girls Dress

Easter Sunday

I look forward to seeing the new fashions each spring because they are usually full of color, and this year is no exception.  Pantone lists turquoise, coral, violet, aurora yellow, amparo blue, and champagne among the top 10 spring colors for 2010.  I have definitely seen these colors to be popular in children’s clothing for boys and girls.  We sold out of boys turquoise shirts almost as soon as we got them in!  As soon as we received the new girls dresses, I had to buy the Josie for my daughter’s Easter dress.  She loved it and will be able to wear it all summer.

Pink and purple continue to top the best seller lists, but yellow is definitely making a strong comeback.  I expect to see more clothes available in shades of yellow for 2011.  One of the hottest dresses of the fall season was the Nicole which is now available in two new spring colors:  White with fuchsia and purple polka dots, and light blue with bright blue polka dots.

A few fashion trends that have continued through the spring for girls party dresses are bubble skirt dresses, tiered skirts, and pattern materials.

It’s nice to finally see some color coming into the boys clothing this year.  It started with boys dress shirts but we plan to keep adding fresh colors to the boys line including new boys suit styles.

Holiday Fashions For Kids

Friday, November 13th, 2009

With the holiday season comes shopping fun!  I love buying the kids their holiday outfits.  So what are the hot trends for childrens’ outfits for this season?

morgan copyGirls Dresses:  Silver and purple are the two trendiest dress colors this season .  Traditional black and burgundy are always classic for holiday dresses.  Try a dress with a pattern or textured fabric this year.  Sleeveless dresses are in style so you may want to compliment the outfit with a cute bolero jacket.  For more casual holiday events consider a sweater dress.   What’s out?  Peter pan collars.

Girls Outfits: Try a preppy plaid skirt with a coordinating solid color top.  Corduroy and velvet skirts are also super cute and can be dressed up or down with accessories making them very versatile.  Add a pair of cable tights and black or red patent leather shoes.  What’s out?  Sheer tights.

Boys Outfits: It’s all about the sweater vest this year.  You can buy them as a set with the vest, pants, and shirts or coordinate your own outfit with separates.  You can also find these sets with a traditional vest.  If vests are not your thing, try a long sleeve sweater or a blazer with a nice pair of corduroy pants.  For more formal events go with a tan pin stripe suit.  What’s out?  Wearing all black.

Whatever holiday style you go with, I highly recommend involving your child in the decision.  It is so much easier to get them dressed when they like the the clothes and feel like they had a say in the matter.  Of course you can guide them to a certain decision or just give them color choices within a style.
