It may be hot, but these trends are super cool!
As admitted shopaholics, one thing we love about our growing kids is being able to get them new duds each season. This spring, the trends are so cute, fresh and do-they-make-that-in-my-size kind of cool, we are going to have to find a way to squeeze their new outfits into their already bursting wardrobes! Check out the newest collections from some of our favourite go-to shops.
When Cath Kidston unveiled its new spring/summer line, we (almost!) wished our children would stay young forever. Its shoes, bags, dresses, shorts and even baby layettes are so adorable, we could easily see wearing out our credit cards here! Prints are fresh and vibrant, totes (for women and girls) are lightweight and on trend (some are even waterproof!), and backpacks for boys are whimsical and playful, just like your kids!

The driving force behind this stunning new collection from Seed Heritage must be an attraction to brightness, and levity. From the sunny embroidered tunic to the bunny tutu dress for girls, or the moose shirt and spary jacket for boys, we can’t get enough of this spring-has-sprung line! Little girls and boys who want to express themselves through fashion (kids after our own hearts!) will delight in these creative and inspired designs.

One reason why Sunset Limonade is one of our faves is not just its motto – creating comfortable (and beautiful!) French clothes for children with an active lifestyle – it’s the fact that its clothing is budget-friendly couture! Affordable is a word that makes us swoon, but finding trendy pieces such as the tunics for both boys and girls make us even giddier.
When fashion is both fun and comfortable, everybody’s happy. That’s why Zara Kids’ line is one of our top choices. Boys will look dapper in the striped pocket T, Bermuda shorts (available in a variety of colours), Snoopy plimsolls (ridiculously cute!), and even a super cool straw hat from the spring/summer collection. Girls will be equally chic in frilly pants, an embroidered top and super fun lace plimsolls.

It isn’t always easy to make cotton look sophisticated, but Oaks of Acorn does it well with its 100 percent pique and gauze collection.Your little lady will still be able to run and jump in this shift dress, and your little mister will be cool and sophisticated in the short-sleeved shirt. The sleek lines and slim silhouettes flatter any little body and look runway ready even though these pieces are meant for playtime.
Fluctuating between fanciful and artistic, the newest arrivals from Kingkow are so adorable, creative and colourful it will be tough to leave a store empty-handed! Whether your child is a baby or a tween, you can easily find what you’re looking for in this collection. Its motto is “Inspired by design uniqueness and fun,” and from what we’re seeing, Kingkow stays true to its word. Its nod to formal wear for kids is something we can get behind. The lightweight blazer with crisp red cotton shorts will make any young man the hit of the party.

Mirroring its adult collection, this season H&M has a thing about ballerinas. Its spring outfits are dotted with soft pastel colours, flowing tulle skirts and even slippers. We get it – a flouncy ballet skirt is attractive to just about any kid! Boys’ clothing has a rougher, sporty edge, highlighted in its sleeveless hoodies, old school tattoo prints and boxer-length shorts. We think the linen blend skirt (matched with adorable printed tights) for girls is super sweet, and the long bomber jacket for boys is very stylish.
