GET THE LOOK: BOHEMIAN STYLE

Make the most of long, dreamy summer days with soft pastels, ditsy florals, gingham and denim – perfect for holidays or days out

 

Pretty in pastels

Midsummer might have been and gone, but there are still holidays to take, places to visit and fun to be had. Combining beautiful summery fabrics with fun and functional designs, our sugary pastel and sweet gingham pieces hit on the key trends for spring/summer 2022. These kids’ holiday clothes might be pretty, but are designed to work hard, too. Details such as the romantic frilled collar add interest to this gorgeous gingham dress – ideal for taking on holiday or popping over a swimsuit on beach days.

No summer adventurer should be without a pair of dungarees, brightened up for the warmer months in on-trend lilac and paired with a crisp white blouse to make the colour sing. For boys, team a classic striped T-shirt with khaki cargo shorts for a smart utilitarian look that’s ready for whatever adventures the long summer days bring.

Into the blue

Durable and stylish, denim wins on every style front. Soft, faded blues work well for the summer months, adding a utilitarian edge to the prettiest of designs. A denim jacket is a key piece for throwing on when the sun disappears behind a cloud; team it with ditsy florals for a Little House on the Prairie feel. Team jeans with an oversized logo T-shirt and pastel high-tops for an on-point but practical combo.

Continue the theme with this pretty-as-a-picture denim dress, sporting the sweetest puffed sleeves that every little girl has been dreaming of. The vintage-style embroidery makes it smart enough to wear for a special occasion, though it can be easily dressed down with trainers for a fun day out.

Flowered up

Nothing says summer like a gorgeously sweet floral print – the ditsier the better. Choose a pretty printed dress, made from light-as-a-feather shirred cotton, perfect for summer parties or special trips out. The ditsy print and ruched detailing create a homespun, boho vibe, a must for lazy summer days.

Want to add a tougher edge? Team a frilled blouse with fun and functional khaki – these pull-on trousers are made for active, fun-loving kids and offer a practical take on warm-weather dressing. Layer up with a soft cotton sweatshirt, in sugary lilac with a cute and inspiring motif, or classic khaki hoodie for changeable days and cooler evenings.
