Spring will arrive in less than a month and it’s time to sort out her wardrobe, but also that of her children. As you well know, children grow up quickly, and their clothes quickly become small. During the period of ages 5 to 15, clothing size needs to be changed almost every year. We’ve tried to collect some of the best kids girl and boy’s fashion ideas for the upcoming spring-summer season here. You will see that children’s fashion trends are no different from those for teens and adults. Jeans, denim jacket, shorts, skirts, dresses, pants, t-shirt with print, geometric lines and very rich color palette.
You are probably familiar with the Stranger Things TV series? Well, the dress style of the kids in this series is inspired by the 80s. It is a good illustration of the trendy kids fashion style in 2018. The style is sometimes a little vintage, sometimes a little futuristic. Cap, sweater, jeans and often pastel shades … It is indeed often difficult to distinguish retro from modern. Then there are pieces of clothing that can never go out of style and that cross the ages..
Girls ‘and boys’ fashion: the ten trends to watch for spring-summer 2018
For the spring-summer 2018 season, we are following the same fashion trends as in previous years. We favor vegetable fibers, comfortable cuts and bright, pastel and light colors. Children’s fashion follows the same trends. Fashionable clothes for little ones are similar to those for adults. The outfit is comfortable and often sporty, but with a stylish touch. We do not hesitate to combine jeans with a stylish jacket and sneakers, for example.
1. Spring-summer 2018 children’s fashion for girls and boys: favor plant fibers
In interior design as well as in fashion, naturalness is in fashion. Cotton and linen are the two options that can guarantee comfort for your girl or boy. By opting for clothes made from one of these two fibers, you can be sure that your child will not be too hot or too cold during the spring and summer days. A child’s skin is usually quite sensitive, so choosing clothes made from plant fibers is a must if you don’t want your child to have allergies. As you already know – allergy season is spring !
2. Girls ‘and boys’ children’s fashion spring-summer 2018 : all colors are allowed, but …
As with the arrangement and decoration of the children’s room, we choose the colors of the clothes for girls and boys according to their preferences and especially those of their child. In the collective consciousness, pink is reserved for girls, while blue for boys. Well, that’s not the case a few years ago. You probably remember the time when it was not uncommon to see a man with a pink t-shirt. The same goes for children’s fashion. Boy, you can dare to add a pink or purple piece to your outfit. And for the girls… Indeed, the girls always wore blue! Blue has always been a universal and unisex color.
We love the little girl’s outfit in the photo below, which fits her perfectly. She has a very vintage and futuristic side at the same time, no ?
Jeans, blue t-shirt, pink sweater and cap – an idea of sporty, comfortable and modern boy outfit! This look is very 80s inspired.
3. Spring-summer 2018 children’s fashion for girls and boys: stripes forever !
Stripes are simply timeless. From 0 to 100 years old, they are always worn with elegance. Having become very popular thanks to the famous sailor shirt by Jean-Paul Gaultier, having some sort of striped suit in your wardrobe has become almost a must. Plus, it’s very springy and summery, right? A striped t-shirt or blouse or shorts (unisex ideas) or a striped skirt or dress for girls – all options are possible. Striped clothing is easily found in stores or online.
Here are two chic girl and boy outfit ideas that are too American college fashion – blue, red and stripes.
French girl look outfit idea: sailor top and skirt, socks and beret in pastel blue.
We love the sporty and futuristic boy’s outfit below, how about you? Very comfortable and modern at the same time.
This little striped dress in white and blue went perfectly with a chic hat and comfortable sandals. Blue looks so good on redheads and highlights their hair color, no ?
Usually during the first days of spring it is always cool.
It is therefore good not to put away winter sweaters just yet because they can still serve you. You can match the sweater with a denim jacket and small stylish suede shoes, for example.
The sporty and elegant style has stood the test. If you are going to a birthday or a family celebration, it is quite possible to combine your boy’s costume or your girl’s dress with sneakers. Comfortable, chic and modern !
The bob is also very fashionable this season. We have already dedicated several publications how to wear them and with what outfit to match them. Mother and daughter dressed the same, how cute isn’t it? The bob has a very vintage American edge, don’t you think ?
4. Spring-summer 2018 children’s fashion for girls and boys: the polka-dot print, always trendy
Just like stripes, polka-dot print clothes are timeless. Polka-dot dress or skirt for girls, polka-dot shirt or t-shirt for boys… It is also easy to match with all colors and always looks elegant. But beware: never combine two or more pieces of clothing in the polka dot print unless you don’t like the kitschy style. On the other hand, it is quite possible to combine a polka-dot print piece with a stripe print. It’s very modern Scandinavian inspired design. As you probably already know, Scandinavian design loves geometric lines.
We love the blue polka dot dress below. It’s very springtime, isn’t it? This dress is ideal for girls of all ages.
Why not combine stripes and polka dots? We think that the dress style of these two little girls is very clean and Scandinavian.
In summer, we wear light. A little dress in natural fabric (wool, linen or silk) is an ideal summer outfit choice. To combine with comfortable sandals or sneakers.
5. Spring-summer 2018 children’s fashion for girls and boys: patterned clothing
Patterned clothing is also very trendy. All patterns are in fashion: florals, animals, objects, ice cream, candy… Dress, skirt, pants, blouse or t-shirt – you will easily find pretty patterned clothes for girls and boys everywhere. Here too, combining two or more different patterns risks being too kitschy. You can match a patterned piece of clothing with a striped or polka dot print piece (see photo below), for example. Everything is in the balance of the elements.
And to make it even more original, bet on a dress printed with… ice cream! Or why not candy or chocolates? We love the futuristic-style girl’s outfit in the photo below. A mixture of salmon pink, white with mustard yellow. And the futuristic glasses ..? Which class !
Another very trendy pattern in recent years is the camouflage pattern. The color khaki is also present in children’s fashion 2018.
6. Boy’s and girl’s spring-summer 2018 children’s fashion: denim
Denim has been a permanent fixture in our wardrobes for several years. Many people associate it with the 60s and 70s. Indeed, it appears long before. Jeans and the denim jacket are undoubtedly two must-have pieces of clothing for any wardrobe – adult, teenager or child. Chic and easy to wear with everything, denim is at the top of the list of must-have pieces in spring-summer 2018 children’s fashion. The same denim pieces are found as for adults: jeans jacket, shorts, skirt, shirt … The denim jacket comes in handy for those cool spring days. Usually it also has several large pockets so that you do not have to carry a bag, for example.
We prefer the slightly longer version of the denim jacket because it always has two more pockets. While the cropped denim jacket is a favorite for summer days. In short, you can match it with a little dress, a t-shirt and a skirt or shorts and a blouse. It is truly universal! Our advice is to opt for a denim jacket size a little larger than your child’s usual size because this way he can wear it for several years.
7. Spring-summer 2018 children’s fashion for boys and girls: long live blue and long live green
Blue is the color most loved by the French and it’s no wonder. It’s a color that goes everywhere and has a calming effect. Perfect for girls ‘and boys’ clothes, it was also THE color in 2017. This year, it gave way to green. We love both blue and green and we think they are also very springtime.
This year, yellow (and more specifically mustard yellow) made a comeback in interior design and on the runway. It can be easily combined with dark tones, as well as light tones. Unisex color, yellow is also often chosen for the girl’s and boy’s room.
8. Spring-summer 2018 children’s fashion for boys and girls: zoom in on shoes
The most important thing for a pair of shoes is that they are comfortable. This is even more important for children who usually move around a lot all the time. The children’s shoe trends for the spring-summer 2018 season are not very different from previous years and from those for teenagers and adults. We put on comfortable shoes such as Clarcks, ankle boots or brogue shoes. Sneakers are always a good option for any occasion: Converse, Vans, New Balance, Nike, Adidas … And for hot summer days, we choose sandals.
9. Spring-summer 2018 children’s fashion for boys and girls: accessories
Kids don’t need a lot of accessories. However, in the spring it can get chilly sometimes and it is good to have a small scarf so you don’t get sick. In summer, the sun is strong enough and it is good to think about protecting yourself. A straw hat and small sunglasses are two good options.
We really like the outfit of the girls below which is very summer. One is wearing a purple dress, the other a red dress. Both have classic straw hats and the same sandals. They are very likely to be sisters …
The bandana and the headband are two hair accessories for girls that are very practical in summer or perfect for a special occasion.
10. Spring-summer 2018 children’s fashion for girls and boys: owning your own style
From the first days of childhood, we begin to express our preferences and shape our tastes. Allowing your child to express his or her opinion is important. That way, you show him respect and leave him free to make his own choices. It’s the same with clothes. The more you ask for his opinion, the more he can assume his own style and become a confidant..
