SHADES OF SUMMER

From carnival-bright colours to classic British style, here are the key trends that will ensure your kids stand out this summer, says Maggie Davis.

CALIFORNIA DREAMING: THINK SUN-BLEACHED COLOURS, NOVEL DESIGNS AND QUIRKY PRINTS.

The laidback look of the LA coastline was the inspiration behind this kids’ trend. Girls’ T-shirts feature kitsch-but-cute prints and sequin embellishments, and dresses are decorated with 50s-style prints. For boys, chalky tones and cool checks are contrasted with neon brights.
