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!

Women’s Shoes that stand out in a crowd

My shoes usually determine the outfit I wear. When planning a new outfit, I pick my shoes first, because I believe in starting with the foundation. Get the foundation/shoes right, everything else usually looks good. The right shoes can take an ‘OK’ outfit to a ‘WOW’ look, so it makes sense to pay attention to shoes. If you are a fellow shoe lover, and a fellow shopaholic, them you must know you cannot go wrong with the right shoe style.

So, which styles are sure to make you stand out in a crowd, without breaking the bank? These are a few great options to consider when looking for stand out styles and new shoes that look great in any crowd.

OOTD: How to Style the Ugg Boots

Outfit Post OOTD 1

 

I fell hopelessly in love with Ugg Boots in 2008. Yea I still remember the exact year, I am weird like that. I just started my Masters course at Bristol University, in the middle of winter, and I wanted something to keep me warm and look stylish at the same time. Ugg Boots are my guiltiest fashion pleasure, but I am not so guilty. I have four pairs now; blue, black, brown and grey, and I am not done yet. I find them so comfortable but yet stylish. The bridge between comfort and style, should be called UGG BOOTS, I am giving the brand free press here and I know it, but I don’t care, I love their boots sooooo much.

I love my uggs

It breaks my heart to hear some women say they find Ugg Boots too casual, not chic enough to wear outside the house, and I am like, WHAT? Don’t get me wrong, I know you can’t pair them with an evening dress or a suit, or wear them to a formal event, like a wedding or a dinner date, but Ugg Boots have their ow place. They can be worn on shopping days, running errands, school runs, and the likes.

They are great with a pair of skinnies or leggings, on those days when you want to look casual-chic. Here are some ways for you to style the Ugg Boots and some ways you shouldn’t:

  1. Wear with no make-up and a messy hair for the chilled out look.
  2. Do not wear with tracksuits. You will look trashy.
  3. They look great with chunky knit, and skinnies.
  4. You can pair your Ugg Boots with a long tunic or tux shirt, and show off your bare legs, if it is not too cold.

Ugg Boots are the winter staple for the fashion conscious, stylish woman, and I see they being around for a very long time, but still, they divide the fashion savvy. Many believe they’re best worn in the comfort of their home, while others like me see them as fashion staple.
