Wardrobe Heroes | Our Buyers' Capsule Pieces For The New Season
Now is a great time to restock on the hero basics that make kids' outfits so much easier to put together. Who better to ask about the best building blocks to create an easy-to-wear capsule than head buyer at Childrensalon, Dina Moon? "A few well chosen T-shirts to replace the ones they've grown out of or covered in tomato sauce, are essential for a grab-and-go-wardrobe," Dina says, "This season we have lots of exciting graphic prints as well as the go-with-everything classics."
Next on the list is a great pair of well-fitting jeans that will withstand the most demanding playground adventures, while trainers that are comfortable, cool and robust are a must. "We're particularly excited by the eco-conscious VEJA range with easy-to-fasten colour-pop Velcro tabs." Dina tells us. A cosy hoodie is another one of our head buyer's essentials, as is a stylish, lightweight jacket for unexpected temperature changes. Read on to discover our stand-out hero pieces to set you up for the season ahead ...
