Being a mum of two boys has made me realise just how difficult it can be to find stylish clothes that are on trend and affordable. With Vinny being that bit older now he has actually started to take care of his appearance and also likes to have a say in what he wears, which is great because he actually has really good style! We’ve been hitting the shops and grabbed some great pieces from the River Island Spring/Summer collection, River Island’s kidswear and mini ranges are inspired by nostalgic, breezy summer days focusing on basics with fashion forward updates in pops of colour for little fun seekers. They stock River Island mini from 0-5yrs and kids clothing from 3-12yrs meaning the boys are going to be rather stylish for many years which makes me a very happy mumma!
Every summer I love to bring out the neons, they just scream summer vibes! I picked out a few items from the new RI kids range that have accents of neon which I think look great. I got some pumps for Vinny which have an added neon yellow tab on the back and I also got him a hoody which has neon detailing on the zip. I think it’s a great way to add a pop of neon without looking too bright or in your face, very subtle yet effective. Another trend I adore is the distressed denim look, this trend never gets old and it just creates a really casual yet stylish feel about any outfit. Teamed up with a simple slogan tee or even a shirt I think you can easily dress denim up or down which is what we like to do all year round.
Finishing off an outfit with the right accessories and shoes can really set off the look, I always aim to get Vinny accessories that will work with a number of outfits by picking colours from different pieces. I also think it’s a great way to add a pop of colour to a dull or dark outfit, I got Vinny some bright red pumps for days when his outfit just needs that extra bit of colour and life.
River Island is renowned for its stylish, affordable fashion and the unique touches they apply to their collections help them to stand out from the rest of the High Street. RI Kidswear and Mini ranges continues to reference the adult mainline collections, although each piece is designed with every little fashionista in mind!
