Good Hair Days

This ain’t no ordinary sales round-up. Oh no siree. Here at Kid Style Junkie – we like to take that EXTRA STEP of style.

Top 10 Kids Fashion Sale Picks
Oh yeh!

Being the fashionista I am, I know all about AUTUMN/WINTER 2012 TRENDS – so my picks are things that will see you through NEXT SEASON too. And in my world, that nicely JUSTIFIES you maybe sending that leetle bit MORE….

Let’s get down to business…. I love this boys paint splatter V front cardigan By Junior Gaultier at Childrenssalon. And at £52 – it’s a piece. And black is a key colour for next season people.

These Bikembergs hi-tops just work for Autumn/Winter. Cool. £66.50 from AlexandAlexa. These feed nicely into the ‘street’ trend in kidswear this season.

This Miller long sleeved boys Fox tee by Miller from Elias&Grace £21. Garnet red is a huge colour for next season as are stripes.

Animal motifs are always huge in kidswear, and they are again this Autumn/Winter. I’m not a huge fan – unless they are quirky – like this tee by Morley from EliasandGrace£26.60. Layer it up with a cardi.

Bunny bun bun

Opulence is another trend – into which this River Dress neatly fits. Layer up with tights, baseball boots and a denim jacket and you’re ready to rock and roll. £61.50 from ilovegorgeous.

Fur-lined Bensimon tennis shoes work brilliantly into the whole preppy trend going on next season. £22 from Little Fashion Gallery.

This Inez Rain Coat by the beautiful Pale Cloud will stylishly get you through the dreary, wintry rain of summer – and next season. £55 from Pale Cloud.

This sits nicely within the Mini Minimalist trend of the new season.

And lastly I love this Cayleigh silk shirt also by Pale Cloud. I would dress it down with faded jeans and baseball boots. £65 Pale Cloud. This works with the Luxe (hate that word!) Looks trend. Bring a bit of opulence into their lives…
