Spring has sprung which means it’s time to bring out the rack of floral dresses. There’s nothing more adorable than a little girl in a pretty floral dress or gingham bloomers or a boy in chino pants or linen shorts. In the mood to shop? Here are our favourite go-to brands for spring. By Angela Heathcote
Things dont get much sweeter than Peggys floral playsuits. Oh wait, they do: there are also matching accessories such as bonnets and bags. These are the kind of charming, old-fashioned pieces youll want to hold on to long after your tiny tot grows out of them.
Having worked as a fashion director for magazines such as VOGUE, Fiona Kowalski knows exactly how to spot a great print. But since becoming a mother, shes leant a thing or two about practicality. Not only are her printed pieces perfect for spring, but theyll also disguise all those inevitable food stains. From pretty floral prints to pastel coloured skirts to baggy pants for boys, its hard to visit her online store and not purchase something new.
Sydney-based French mother Verane Bonal founded June Baby after the birth of her daughter and her incredibly chic offering includes everything from classic checked bloomers to girly floral dresses to chic espadrilles made in France. There are also chic linen shirts and shorts for boys.
Ethical in mindset, Emily McMaster has set out to create a simpler take on fashion by focusing on the shape and detail of the garments, while paring back colour and patterns. Were in love with her sweet floral bikinis and skirts in grey gingham gauze. Seriously heavenly.
Emilie Labrousse-Saulnier studied fashion design at the internationally renowned French fashion school ESMOD in Paris. It was here that she developed her love for simple yet well-made clothing. From gorgeous liberty prints to vibrant neon detailing, Meilieaime is ideal for those playful spring days in the sun.
