Boys can be tricky to dress sometimes, but the most challenging part is finding clothes that fit, and are fun and fashionable. This summer we’ve done the research for you! When it comes to kid’s fashion I think it’s fair to say that that there is always far more to choose from in the girl’s department. Too often I’ve wandered through rows and rows of tops, skirts, dresses, frills and fab pieces to find nothing but boring blues and bulldozer motifs on a tiny selection of boy’s tees and shorts. It’s easy to assume that we mothers of boys want simplicity and washability, but we also want our little dudes to look cool too. Luckily this summer, three of our favourite brands have come up with looks for our little men that are fun, fabulous and fully washable.
From Bonpoint – a Safari Adventure
A touch of rock, a hint of pop, and a dash of humour come together for the Bonpoint summer 2015 boy’s collection. From monochrome to wild animals prints, and acid yellow to deep Indigo blue, the boys are on a safari adventure this season. Fabrics are light and cool – think twill and denim pants, knit cardigans and soft cotton t-shirts, and the range of separates is perfect for mixing and matching, if you have a boy who’ll let you coordinate his wardrobe.
Ahoy Sailor! At Gusella
Jumping on board with a nautical theme Italian brand Gusella offers the St. Tropez Jumper for cooler evenings at the seaside or unpredictable holiday weather! It looks fab paired with Berlino shorts. And for the littlest man of the house finish the outfit with Cipro leather shoes – made of the highest quality and softest, non-irritating materials.
Seed gets them ready for anything
Whether you’re climbing trees, making mud pies or building forts in the backyard, the summer styles from Seed are for boys who are all about action! Light sweaters in pop colours and camo prints go great with slouchy denim and printed tees. For boys who like prints there are novelty graphics, and for ultimate comfort and style track pants get a reboot. A staple in our house, cargoes are back too (did they ever go out?).
