Children’s Spring 2013 Trend Recap – Part Deux

Welcome to Part 2 of my Spring Children’s Trend Report (you can read part 1 of our Children’s Trend Report here). There are tons of cute clothes and accessories for your tween daughter out there! Writing this has me itching to go on a shopping spree so consider yourselves warned.

Stripes – I’m definitely enjoying the spotlight that stripes are receiving these days. A classic for a reason!

Sweet Skirt from The Children’s Place $($16.95)

Pink striped top from Gap Kids ($16.95) that also follows the mixed patterns trend.

Striped top from Janie and Jack ($32.00). Does it come in adult sizes?

Yellow – This color is king this spring!

Yellow Cardigan (with stripes!!) from The Children’s Place (Currently on sale for $20.00)

The yellow Lily panel from Flying Buttress will snap onto any of your Flying Buttress bags to update your look in a snap.

Nautical – No water required.

Again…where can I get this in my size?? A sailor skort from The Children’s Place ($16.95)

This skirt would go great with this sweater from Gap Kids ($44.95)

Banana Bread Baby has this great dress on Etsy ($55.00)

Mix Master – I have always loved the idea of mixing patterns and my friends and I dubbed it the “funky mis-match” way back in 2002 (yikes, that was a long time ago!). It is tricky to do well so here are some suggestions:

The Retail Therapy Couch Blog put together great trends recap in which she put together some outfits. I highly recommend checking it out. Here is my personal favorite of her outfits:

And of course with our Booie Bag ($38.00) and Tommie Tote ($30.00) you can mix and match all of the panels to create thousands of combinations. My current favorites are the red “Mona Lisa” ($10.00) with the zebra striped “Zuri” ($10.00)
