Kids Style File


By Stylist – Nat Baker


When I first had my kids I picked THE best outfits for them….designer brands, funky styles, matching blankets for prams, colourful baby trainers. It seemed like I had a plan… and I thought my kids would just do as they were told and wear those cute outfits that cost me a small fortune. But my kids had their own ideas, wanting to wear Dora the Explorer dresses or Diego t-shirts.


As frustrating as this was, I realised that my kids wanted to have their own fun with fashion. Kids are little people wanting to express themselves too! In most circumstances I try to let kids experiment with colour and have fun with fashion.

Style for Kids

COLOUR….brights vs pastels vs pattern. It doesn’t matter if “pink doesn’t go with red” just let them start to make choices

– Use TEXTURE to make kids outfits interesting eg, Tulle skirts with tees, leather look metallic shorts with print tees, shorts and shiny gumboots

GUIDE your kids and let them know what is appropriate style for certain occasions

– Keep it COMFORTABLE in soft fabrics that are easy to wear & wash
