On-trend girls’ clothes? Check out Next

Working on a fashion magazine means I’m constantly hearing about the latest trends (brocade is going to be BIG this Autumn/Winter), seeing which high street stores are doing designer-worthy items (these Zara shoes for example), and reading tips on how to style outfits. Phrases I hear every day include “trans-seasonal”, “go-to look” and “makes your wardrobe work double time”.

While I’m not deluded enough to try all the trends myself (double leather? Not for me) I love that some of the gentler trends can be translated to kids’ clothes. Personally, I’m not a fan of small children being dressed up to look like mini adults, but there’s something lovely about those looks that both kids and grown-ups can rock together. Bright hoodies, Breton tops, hi-tops, denim shorts.

The current range of kids’ clothes in Next is fantastic – have you seen it?  It takes its lead from lots of the trends going on in the grown-up fashion world.
