If you’re struggling for some inspiration for your little one’s wardrobe this autumn, or just looking for something a bit cooler and more original, we’ve teamed up with Alex and Alexa. The global style destination for kids, to help you out. From cosmic-kid prints to monster motifs, here are the top five trends for little ones this autumn.
1. Cosmic kid
We have Tim Peake to thank for this season’s preoccupation with all things intergalactic. The British astronaut's six month stay on the International Space Station this year has inspired planetary prints, holographic fabrics, and a smattering of stars on everything from sweatshirts to shoes.
2. Little monsters
Inspired by the retro game that we just can’t stop playing, cute critters pop up all over this season’s collections. From googly eyes to gnashing teeth, every designer from Fendi to Moschino has designed their own crazy creature prints. Make sure you catch them all!
3. Wild wild west
Saddle up, because designers have gone cowboy and cowgirl crazy for AW16. From galloping horses at Stella McCartney Kids, to cactuses and Sheriff’s badges at Dolce & Gabbana, there are plenty of Wild West-inspired pieces to choose from. To get the look, have some fun with fringing and check out this season’s plaid prints too.
4. Jungle boogie
For AW16, designers headed off on adventure to where the wild things are... Hiding out behind the big green leaves, you’ll find loud leopard prints, lion and tiger motifs and even slippery snake-like fabrics. Roaaar!
5. Woodland hop
This season’s sweetest trend is inspired by a journey into a magical forest. In a soft palette of taupe and cream, look out for leaping deer prints, bunny ears, cotton tails and teddy bear-soft fabrics. Perfect for new arrivals.
