What's In This Season for Children's Fashion? Neutrals.
Have you ever thought about what it might be like for your child to be in a fashion show? Do not be embarrassed–we have all imagined it. And with the incredible kid’s fashion options available at Ladida.com, you are sure to find something runway-worthy for your little one. This season’s top look? Neutrals!
When it comes to designer kids clothing, do not confuse “neutral” with “boring.” In fact, some of the most exciting children’s boutique items come in neutral tones, which makes them wonderful choices for adding to your child’s growing wardrobe. Here are some of our favorite neutral-toned selections from a few incredible children’s clothing designers, including Little Remix, Ava & Lu, and Emile et Ida.
Little Remix Children’s Clothing
If you are looking for a true fashion-forward clothing line for your future runway model, Little Remix is the designer for you! Little Remix is the children’s line from Charlotte Eskildsen, the head of Designer’s Remix, a top women’s fashion line based in Denmark. These mini looks in gorgeous neutral tones will make you green with envy and will make your little one look like a true fashion icon!
The Little Remix Camel Ruffle Sweater proves that neutral tones can come with feminine flair. It features long sleeves with ruffles bordering the front of the sweater, and is created from a soft mohair wool. It is even machine washable, so your little beauty can wear it often and with pride. This lovely little number looks great paired with jeans or over a collared button-up for a preppy look.
For a dressier outfit, try the Little Remix Nude Taffeta Dress, sure to be a favorite among the “girly girls” out there. It features a ruffled, off-the-shoulder design that is comfortable yet dainty, and the soft material makes it an easy choice even for those of us with picky dressers. And the stunning neutral tone looks incredible paired with everything from tights and flats to a pair of sneakers for some added urban style. Your little beauty queen will get tons of wear out of this versatile little dress, making it a great choice for any wardrobe.
Ready for something truly unique? Check out Little Remix Black Gaby Romper made with ribbed cotton. Rompers–a simple one-piece outfit that looks great on everyone–are all the rage right now. And if your little girl loves to accessorize, then the simple black color and flattering design of this romper is perfect. Add a scarf or some stacked necklaces to give it some true feminine flair! This romper is durable and can transition from the classroom to the backyard with ease. Pair it with some black Converse sneakers, or with flats and a cashmere sweater for a dressier look.
Ava & Lu Children’s Clothing
If you are the proud parent of a tween princess, Ava & Lu has a secret for you: high-end looks for tweens are out there, if you know where to look! Ava & Lu was born from a desire to create wearable looks that are actually built to last and help your child look amazing. Take a look at these lovely pieces from Ladida’s Ava & Lu designer collection:
If you have not heard about Ava & Lu’s skirts, then you are missing out. They are truly a neutral-loving tween’s dream. Check out their absolutely perfect Ava & Lu Black/Grey Pleated Skirt, featuring sewn-down pleats. It is grey all the way around, with a black panel down the center of the front. This seemingly simple skirt is actually an incredible statement piece, with a versatile style that is sure to flatter any top or sweater. Ava & Lu skirts can be dressed up or down, and are wonderfully flattering on any body type. If you want a traditional look with a twist, this skirt fits the bill. And like all Ava & Lu products, you are getting a solidly constructed piece of clothing at a great price.
Ava & Lu has proven that not all tween clothing is some combination of jeans and a heartthrob t-shirt. Nor do you have to go to the other end of the spectrum, with clothes that are more appropriate for women than for young girls. Their clothes are attractive yet traditional, and their color scheme coordinates easily with a range of accessories and other apparel. This Ava & Lu Grey Wrap Dress, for example, is comfortable enough for your daughter to want to wear, but also “hip” enough to keep her friends envious of her style. It is a great layering piece, and can be worn over multiple seasons. Try it with a pair of colored tights to add some excitement, or with some dainty jewelry to keep things simple.
Think your child may be ready for a little “avant garde” in her life? Ava & Lu's White Pleated Collar Shirt is a great way to add some. One half of the shirt features pleating, while the other half is flat. This shirt, known as “The Assert”, really does allow your daughter to exercise some self-expression without being too over the top. This modern twist on a classic blouse has just enough flair to keep in interesting. Wear it on its own or under a blazer, and pair it with one of Ava & Lu’s famous skirts for a great overall look. And, of course, the simple white color makes it an easy addition to every girl’s wardrobe. We all need a nice white button-up–and this one lets your daughter continue to be a child for a little longer. This fun Ava & Lu blouse is a great choice for any number of occasions, and is a solidly made investment piece you and your daughter will be happy to own.
Emile et Ida Children’s Clothing
Finally, one of our favorite children’s designer brands, Emile et Ida, is here to inject a little whimsy into this neutral fashion show. After all, childhood is about having fun and learning about the world. So before we go too far in wanting our little ones to look all grown up, let’s take a moment to appreciate some children’s clothing which is fun simply for fun’s sake. This French-based boutique children’s fashion house obviously knows a little something about fashion, but they also do not take it too far. The clothes are attractive yet enjoyable, and are sure to become quick favorites, both for you and for the little one in your life. Take a look at these adorable pieces from Emile et Ida, all available at great prices at Ladida.com.
Ok, so since we have just covered clothes for tweens, let’s go back and take a look at some options for the littler ones. Baby clothes! There’s really nothing sweeter. Emile et Ida's Velvet Cream Stretchie, for example, is a great way to keep your new addition both comfortable and fashionable. It is crafted from soft velvet and features miniature embellishments that keep it oh-so-unique. If you are looking for a simple neutral layering piece with just a touch of adorableness, this stretchie is a great choice.
For the older (but not too much older!) little lady in your life, check out Emile et Ida Taupe Motorcycle Tee is a great little piece for adding to any wardrobe. It is made from a soft cotton/linen blend and features a simple motorcycle embellishment on the front (although your child may point out that it is more of a scooter than a motorcycle). The simple color combination makes this a great top to “throw on and go”, as it coordinates well with everything from jeans to skirts, and it makes a great shirt to throw in your child’s bag in case the weather gets a little too cool for short sleeves. If you are looking for tops that your child will actually want to wear, this little motorcycle tee is the perfect choice.
Finally, we conclude our tribute to children’s fashion–with an emphasis in neutral shades–with this Emile et Ida Caramel House Pullover. Why this piece? Because we believe it reflects the perfect combination of whimsical and traditional. This wool-based pullover features long sleeves and a tie at the back, making it a solid piece for any young lady’s wardrobe. But the sweet little house embroidery on the front is a reminder that children should be allowed to be children just a bit longer. We at Ladida hope that you will allow us to assist you as you help your child find his or her fashion voice with clothes which are well made, comfortable, and attractive. We truly love all of the designs from Emile et Ida, Ava & Lu, Little Remix, and all of the other great designers that we carry on our site. So get your imaginations fired up, and find the perfect neutral clothing designs for your child at Ladida.com!
