With Super Stylist Jessica Zindren
Turning a classic preppy look into 'too cool for school' is as easy as 1,2,3...
1 - Give a classic wool winter coat an update with shorter length bell sleeves that hit just above the wrist - it's also a great way to give outgrown items a longer life!
2 - Love the 'tuck'! Always tuck tops into skirts for a clean 'cool nerd' look or pair sweaters with a neat ribbed hem that sits neatly at the waist.
3 - Don't be afraid to mix and match - that applies to prints and styles! Do you have a kid who lives in trainers? Why not spruce up the look with some fun mid height socks and give that preppy look a cool edge?
This is not your Nana's faux fur coat!
1- Did you know you can create magical balance when you pair contrasting styles? Dig those fancy coats out of the closet and pair them with jeans or studded corduroy wide leg pants like the pros to create an edgy look that is as comfortable as it is cool.
2 - Mix up your patterns like the Pros! Match an argyle knit jumper over a bold print top and let it peak out the top and bottom for a cool take on a preppy look.
3 - Let your shoes shine! One way we love to see outfits given fun updates is with the latest shoe trends. Combat boots have never looked as cool as they do when they're paired with classic styles like the Sabine Coat
Top stylists know - kids look the clothes that look and feel the best...
1 - Do you have a boho baby at home? One of the biggest runway trends this season was 'dungarees with design'. Look for styles with modern design elements like wide leg trousers and embroidery details like our Eliza dungarees
2 - Mix and match for an all-weather solution. Dungarees add fashion cred to any outfit whether paired with a sophisticated sweater, fun slogan tee, or 80s inspired printed blouse so you can take this look to the school yard, a BFFs birthday party or Saturday errands.
3 - Choose your battles wisely! Does your child have a favourite quirky hat or favourite pair of shoes they don't want to leave the house without? Don't take on a two sided battle - let them choose one or the other to steal the show like this fabulous vintage beret, fun sunnies or statement handbags
