It’s the summer holidays and despite a lack of sunshine, the kids are still eager to go out and play. Maybe you’re going abroad for your holidays, or maybe staying at home. Either way, choosing some new clothes for the young ones can be a difficult task! They want to stay looking trendy, and we want them to choose clothes that’ll stand the test of time. They want to run about and climb trees, while we know that their outfit has got to take them from the playground to a family get-together – and still look smart.
A fantastic choice for both boys and girls are stripes, spots, or a combination of the two, and Ladybird have got a huge range of really cute designs to cover this look. For babies, we can’t get enough of these comfy red and black striped Ladybird Dungarees for the boys – practical and with a hint of pirate about them! Girls will look adorable in these printed spot Ladybird Tee’s, complete with frill trim. They’re in a fantastic fresh colour combination of pink, green and white, with a sweet flower motif to really get into the summer spirit.
For older boys, the Ladybird Long Sleeve Stripe Tops in a classic thick and thin stripe looks very grown up and plays with that classic nautical theme. They go perfectly with jeans, or these chino-style Ladybird Pull On Trousers, and for when it gets chilly, the Ladybird Stripe Jumper will keep them warm while still looking stylish. All of the items are machine washable, making our job a little bit easier when it comes to keeping them looking their best. Our favourite item for the boys is this pair of ace Ladybird Felix Wellington Boots: great for when the weather turns cloudy but they still want to play! The quirky print will mean they’re sure to be a favourite for the little adventurers.
The navy and white colour combination, whether spotty or stripy, works equally as well with girls. This Ladybird Jersey Dress and Leggings Set is a cute alternative to jeans and a t-shirt – ideal for trips to friends’ houses. The handkerchief hem is a pretty addition, making this set really stand out from the crowd. For more formal events, the Ladybird Spot Jersey and Woven Mix Dress keeps with the stylish nautical theme, but has a hint of lemon yellow for a bright touch. The full, pleated skirt and unique details – like the grosgrain ribbon trim – take the traditional party dress and combine it with a funky oversized spot print. This is the dress for your little fashionistas!
