Keeping Up With the Kids: Winter Fashions

Dressing a baby is about as much fun as putting an octopus into a string bag sometimes, and while babies are not fashionistas, your talking toddler is likely to have an opinion on their own wardrobe. Little girls like to demand sparkly dresses and glittery shoes, and little boys love looking dapper in little shirts and dungarees. However, when winter rolls around, sparkly dresses and shirts need replacing, as they don’t hold up against snow and strong winds.

Party On This Season

Winter warmers of chunky knit cardigans, thick fleecy coats and matching hat and scarf sets are always on the rails as the colder days draw in and keeping the kids warm is the priority. Fashion-conscious little girls need not worry, though! Sparkly dresses can still feature in the winter months when paired up with patterned tights and smart winter boots. With parties for Halloween, Bonfire Night fireworks, Christmas and New Year filling up your child’s social calendar, you’ll need sparkly colourful wellies and sturdy shoes to keep those toes warm and brighten up even the coldest evening.

 

Snow Is Falling

Santa is coming again with Christmas patterns, special Christmas jumpers and ice-blue knits and thick tights on the agenda. Pair a thick pair of woollen trousers with a reindeer Christmas jumper for a smart warm look on your little boy this Christmas. Those Christmas party dresses won’t wear themselves, and joining a gorgeous red dress with a glittery faux-fur wrap can jazz up any little girl’s Christmas day outfit. Wrap up warm with toasty fleece-lined gloves and bobble hats for girls and boys and watch their faces light up in the glow of the fireworks at New Year.

 

Drab to Fab!

Winter fashion doesn’t have to be drab, with bold colours decorating knitted clothes and thicker leggings and glitter twinkling through the thread. There’s nothing like splashing out on a special Christmas Day or New Year’s Eve outfit for your little one, and finding kids designer wear with great prices attached doesn’t have to be difficult.

 

Layer Up

Looking for kids designer wear doesn’t have to be taxing when there are so many options to keep them toasty this winter. Finding fluffy onesies or all-in-one winter outdoor wear for your newborn baby isn’t difficult, and making sure they’re wearing the right number of layers gets easier when the vests and baby sleepsuits they wear are brightly coloured and thermal to keep the heat in. Children can rock the snowflake look this winter with designer clothes that keep them warm. Splash out on fleece-lined pyjamas and slippers for cosy nights at home. Summer may bring out the sunshine colours, but winter brings in the cool greens and blues that scream cosy. Dress your kids for the season and keep them stylish and toasty at the same time this winter!

 

 

Will UK Fashion Survive Brexit?

fashion-picture

 

The whole world held their breath as they waited for the results of the June 23, 2016 referendum. The outcome was a narrow win in favour of Britain leaving the EU with 52% against 48% of the total votes. This result brought a lot of concern to Britain, and the fashion industry was not left out of it.

The UK fashion industry has been a prime mover in the economy contributing £26billion in 2014 and £28billion in 2015. This industry was also responsible for employing nearly 900,000 workers for jobs spanning from manufacturing to retail.

Although the survey conducted by the British Fashion Council (BFC) states that 90% of the fashion designers planned to vote to remain in EU, the industry will now have to face what’s coming with Brexit.

But does UK fashion have the chance to survive Brexit? I believe there’s a good chance. Here are some of the reasons why I believe the UK fashion will survive Brexit –

  1. The devaluation of the Pound could lead to an increase in sales from foreign buyers

Since the final results of Brexit, the value of the pound took a nose dive. Although this caused a serious panic in the fashion industry, fashion designers saw an increase in the volume of their sales. The reason for this was that the drop in the value of the Pound made the fashion items in Britain appear cheaper to the buyers paying in Euro, Dollars, and other currencies. Thus, tourists in Britain found fashion items more affordable and this encouraged more of them to buy from the British market.

  1. Encouragement of growth in the fashion industry

As more foreign clients from different countries like France, Italy and Hong Kong among others, are buying more fashion items from Britain, there are signs of an increase in the growth of the fashion industry.  Some fashion designers are experiencing an increase in their businesses.

The price difference will definitely be a huge bonus for the British designers, since their price is comparatively more attractive than the prices in other European countries.

However, London will always be known as a fashion capital with talented designers. So even if there were an increase in the price of fashion items in Britain, this will not stop the fashion conscious from owning the latest trendy pieces.

  1. There’ll be a huge boom in online retail with a large foreign client base

With Brexit the common trend seems to be a shift to an increase in foreign patronage, so e-commerce stores that have a majority of clients from countries other than the UK will have a mega boost. Of course, price is the main determining factor in this case.

So will UK fashion survive Brexit? I’m pretty optimistic that the future of UK fashion is bright. And I predict a massive boom in the fashion industry.
