One of our favourite kids’ clothing brands, Ladybird, always comes up with fashionable new designs every season, whether it’s cosy coats for winter or shorts and t-shirt sets for summer. For spring summer 2012, this iconic children’s clothing label has done it again with fresh floral and checked patterns, bright colours and classic shapes for boys and girls. Here’s our pick of Ladybird’s newest range to update your little ones’ wardrobes this summer!
For the girls this spring, think cheerful patterns and fantastic fashion details like bows and cute prints. The Ladybird Stripe Jetset Bow Dress in in a sunshine yellow and white stripe makes a great party dress but is equally robust for playtime, thanks to the machine washable fabric. Pastel and icecream shades were all over the catwalks for SS12, so combine a pretty lemon dress with a strawberry-icecream pink Ladybird Cropped Denim Jacket. The gingham lining in the cuffs is a cute fashion detail while the cropped style is super modern.
Pink and yellow is always a pretty, fresh colour combination – the Ladybird Top and Trouser Set perfectly sums up that springtime feeling with a pair of plain trousers and a gingham print blouse. This breathable cotton set is machine washable and looks really cute with the Ladybird Carrie Espadrille Shoes in pink with white spots. Spot and stripe prints are great all year round, but summer is the perfect time to wear floral prints – and kidswear is no exception. The Ladybird Tulip Bow Dress is the perfect party frock, with a bright painterly-style floral print and purple bow at the neck.
This season, boys’ fashion is all about fresh spring checks in fun and classic colourways. The Ladybird Harrington Jacket is a smart alternative to a denim jacket and is fully lined, so ideal for chillier spring days. The classic blue, white and red check and crest logo to the front gives it a smart mod look that will work with jeans, chinos or shorts. Our Ladybird Check Shorts match the jacket and are great for beach holidays or even just playing in the garden!
For a more casual look, how about some bold and bright colours in relaxed shapes, like the printed Ladybird Boys Car Hoody? In a turquoise colour with contrast hood and cool car logo, it’s sure to be a hit with your little boy. We also really like the Ladybird Boys Hooded Check Shirt in multi-coloured check with contrast grey marl hood and cuffs – paired with a plain white t-shirt and dark jeans, it’s a smart but practical outfit for summer. Summer shoes need to be hard-wearing but not too heavy, so the Ladybird Raymond Canvas Shoes are perfect, plus the bright contrasting colours will add a fashionable touch to any outfit.
Don’t forget to have a look at the rest of our Ladybird range for some fantastic kids’ summer fashion – and with everything available to pay weekly, it won’t cost the earth either.
