THE SWEET SWEATER
Both frivolous and useful, this sequin-smattered sweater is guaranteed to put a smile on your little girl’s face, says fashion editor of the Guardian, Jess Cartner-Morley.
What is it about pineapples that is so happy-making? Whatever it is, this sweater has it in spades. This is serotonin, in knitwear form. For all its zaniness, this is a practical buy: layer it over summer dresses when the clouds close in, team with a favourite skirt for a cool party look, or just wear with jeans to make everyone smile. The best buys for kids are the pieces that you love (here: the gorgeous, Miami-kitsch colours, the mum-pleasing cosiness), and that they love too (the sequins! the silliness!). Everyone’s happy; even when you’re bugging them to put a jumper on. Win-win.
