The rise of Mini-Me fashion: Kids trends for SS16

No longer are we just competing with the fashion blogger extraordinaires; the rise of super stylish kids is upping the stakes in the fashion world.

We paid a visit to the impressive childrenswear department at Fenwick Brent Cross to pick out three SS16 trends that wouldn’t look out of place in adult size (or on the Instagram feeds of the fashion-forward)...

Look 1: Monochrome/Nautical

There are fewer trends more chic and sophisticated than Parisian-inspired monochrome. The childrenswear department is keeping it suave with a navy and white update on the classic black and white look, injecting just a hint of maritime style...

Kids 1

Boys: Top by Benetton, £8.90; Chinos by Hugo Boss, £75; Shoes by Armani Junior £134
Baby: Trousers, top and hat by Emilie et Rose, £39

Look 2: Tropical Print

Tropical prints are set to take over this summer, popping up in every corner from the catwalk to the high street. The explosion of print and colour is bringing the hopeful reality of summer ever-closer; we love clashing different tropical prints for the ultimate eclectic feel...

Kids 2

Girls: Jacket by Billieblush, £59; Top by Vintage Havana, £35; Shorts by Molo, £19; Shoes by Step2wo, from £52
Baby: Top by Billieblush, £19; Leggings by Billieblush, £19

Look 3: Glam Rock

'80s glam rock has been in style for a while now, and it’s a look kids certainly aren't afraid to make their own. We love these leggings from the exclusive Zara Terez X Dylan’s Candy Bar collaboration in the US. All you need is confidence and a fearless attitude to pull off this Bowie-inspired look...
