Styling the Cooler Months for Kids

16th March 2021

As we enter Autumn, the days get shorter, there’s less sunlight, and the time for wearing shorts and tank tops draws to a close, making way for Winter warmer essentials. For the kids, striking the right balance between trendy, comfortable and cosy is important - Best&Less makes it easy to find all of the outfit essentials in one place, at low prices. Here’s some styling tips and trend updates for the cooler months of 2021!

Fair Isle

Retro prints, silhouettes and styles are steadily coming back into fashion - we’ve seen 80’s and 90’s trends from neon windbreakers to flannel shirts ebb and flow in the trend cycle, and now it’s time for the 70’s to shine. For adults, that means a lot of flare pant styles, bell sleeves and paisley, but for kids, a toned down, subtle 70’s influence is on the cards. Fair Isle is a 70’s influenced print, previously reserved for Christmas sweaters, but we’re loving the cosy print on knitwear once again. Patterned jumpers are the easiest way to dress up a pair of jeans, while keeping comfortable and warm. Having the print only cover parts of the jumper creates a less bold style, and makes for an effortless casual look. Style Tip: Style these jumpers with a matching fair isle beanie and thick knit socks to boost the cosy vibe of the look!

Classic Denim Never Goes Out of Style

A good pair of jeans never goes out of style. Each and every year we all search through our drawers to find our favourite pair, or hit the stores to find that new trending silhouette that we’ll love for years to come. It’s not different for the little ones! Having a comfortable, stylish pair of jeans creates the base of any great cool weather outfit. Best&Less denim is crafted with breathable, stretch materials to ensure comfort is maintained all day long, while still being durable enough to last through the messy days the kids are sure to have. Style Tip: Blue denim never goes out of style, and is a staple style for any wardrobe - make sure your kids have these before looking for trending silhouettes and fashion colours!

Accessories Make the Outfit

Cold weather is the perfect time to experiment with layering - and that doesn’t have to stop at a jacket! Accessories can complete an outfit, while adding extra comfort and warmth. When it's warmer outside, no one wants to spend time fussing about layering choices (other than a sun safe hat). Shoes are everyday items that can change the look of an outfit completely, simple sneakers can create an ultra casual look, whereas a pair of boots can elevate the style and have the kids looking dressy without sacrificing comfort. A pair of white sneakers will go with nearly everything in a kids wardrobe! To keep ultra cosy, having a comfy and warm beanie is a must have - whether you pick up a matching style to their jumper, or simply opt for an everyday neutral like white or black. Style Tip: White accessories are the most versatile.
