As they are made from sugar and spice and all things nice, little girls will of course look fabulous in many different types of dress. This season’s hot picks include a range of quality fabrics, on-point styles, and colours that they will love to swish around in. Here is a look at three key trends to look out for in 2016.
A pinafore dress
Although they will be forever associated with Victorian housemaids or smart schoolgirls, the pinafore dress has become a fashion classic. Smaller girls look incredibly sweet when dressed in a darker pinafore with a white top underneath; you can use a white t-shirt or blouse to create the vintage effect. The Tutakids Tyess Skirt and Shirt set, with floral accents, strikes the perfect balance between formal chic and casual daywear.
A party dress
From birthday parties, to family get-togethers, trips out and weddings, little girls rarely need an excuse to wear their favourite party dress. Whether you go for the full-length gown or a more contemporary option, shiny, sparkly and lavish dresses are always going to be a hit with your small fashionista. Finished in burgundy, the Tuta Tyess Faux Leather Dress is sure to become a well-loved favourite, it is embellished with plenty of glittery sequins and has a handy zipper at the back.
A shift dress
For everyday wear, or as part of a holiday wardrobe, the shift dress is an essential for all style conscious girls. The first were introduced onto the couture scene in the 1920s. Since then, their wearability has made them a go-to item for women of every age. They can be dressed up with accessories, or thrown on with a pair of sandals in the summer. Take a look at our Tyess Two Piece Green Dress for inspiration.
