WHEN searching for summer staples for the children this summer, Zara is a one-stop-shop for an on-trend holiday wardrobe writes Cathrina Hulse.
Fashion is flirting with florals this year, and this is evident in the pretty prints Zara has created for girls. From A-line dresses and t-shirts with ruffle detail through to statement headbands, the collection comprises summery shades of pink and white, and metallic accessories add a touch of glamour.
Zara has also subtly incorporated this trend into a selection of the boys' items with navy floral embroidery on the cuffs of a classic white shirt ensuring that all members of the family will be blooming stylish this summer.
Another key trend is safari - think neutral, khaki outfits in natural fibres. A box jacket with oversized
buttons and a matching skirt bring this style instantly up to date for girls, while a simple cotton t-shirt and white trousers paired with a nautically-inspired zip up top and coordinating belt make this fashion accessible for boys too.
Summer is synonymous with weddings, but when seeking outfits for
the entire family, fear not; Zara's collection will stop them shrugging out of their suits before they even make it to the church. A pin-striped cotton shirt in blue and white coupled with white shorts with detailed dark stitching will keep children cool and comfortable without compromising on style.
And while these show-stopping items are ideal for special occasions, the designers at Zara understand the need for value for money, classic day-to-day basics for every child too. This is the inspiration behind the kidswear t-shirts and vests which are available in a wide range of citrus colours and jeans which come in a variety of styles including skinny, baggy and wide-leg.
