The latest trend for your mini style icon

2016-10-19 06:00

Inspired by the deep sea, the deep summer trend is showcased through a marine colour palette – think ombre blues and greens – with metallic accents to mimic the silvery play of the sun’s rays under the water.

Fabrics used to illustrate this trend are generally soft and easy-to-wear and shapes are a relaxed fit. Your little one will be comfortable in loose-fit playsuits and A-line dresses. The blue-green colour palette is highlighted with pops of bright colours in pinks and corals and then teamed with bold, bright prints.

This beach-inspired trend is a sister to the nautical trend but less seafaring and more sealife. So instead of rolled up chinos and striped shirts your mini-me will be wearing boxy T-shirts and cheeky shorts.

Key items for your style icon in the making to embrace this trend:

Printed beach tops

Look for fun T-shirts and vests with prints inspired by patterns and colours from the deep sea. These styles feature slouchy fits; cropped, boxy cuts and fun details like front-ties or cold shoulders.

Relaxed shorts

What is summer without a few pairs of cheeky shorts? We love denim or shades of candy floss, coral or butter yellow.


Rompers are a go-to summer essential for younger girls. Relaxed, easy-to-wear and perfect for adventurers who like to climb trees, explore rock pools and do handstands.

Printed dresses

Great for when the weather really warms up, deep summer dresses feature bold prints on subtle prints. Think stripes with summer fruit and surf-inspired slogans.
