Kids fashion has really gone to new heights in recent years. Parents want their kids to be mini-fashionistas just like them. So more and more kids are being allowed to develop their own individual style. It’s no wonder, then, that big brands like Ackermans are letting kids design clothing for kids.
Ackermans 2017 Style Squad Young Fashion Designer Competition winners; Daniella ‘Dani’ dos Santos (16) and Nikhil ‘Nixie’ Govender (11) will be launching their very own winter kids fashion collections, which will be available at Ackermans stores from June.
Dani and Nixie also shared their top five winter kids fashion trends and we so agree with their choices. From the denim revival to adding splashes of colour to drab winter apparel, these stylish kids are bang on trend!
New age denim
Denim is a wardrobe hero for busy moms who still want their children to look good. From skinny jeans to cropped styles, jeans are versatile and easy to pair with anything in your little one’s closet. Denim trends for kids fashion right now are all about the applique; be it embroidery for little girls or patchwork for boys – it’s all about stepping out of the box and having fun.
Knitwear is a huge hit this winter for grown-ups and the same goes for kids fashion. Plus, it’s a really affordable luxe item for your pint-sized fashionista; basically the (faux) fur of the kids’ fashion world. Spoil your little one with fun and quirky jumpers or long line cardigans they can wear next year too.
Camo is such a great print for active boys and girls. This look is great for a play date outdoors as well as a trip to the movies with their friends at the local mall – you just can’t go wrong with this buy.
Buying winter clothes for kids can be difficult, especially as kids fashion often goes hand in hand with superheroes. This year, following the recent active-wear trend, a new hero has taken centre stage – the sports hero. Encourage your kids to be active and look good at the same time with a pair of cute joggers, trainers and sweaters – just like the big sports stars – but for much less.
