Over the last couple of years, I have always been on the lookout for great value clothes for girls under the age of ten that aren’t too grown-up looking. My daughter is really tall for her age and about a year ago, I discovered that with many brands, once you hit the age 10 size, the style of the clothes changed and it was more geared to older girls, tweens and teens. Whilst I totally get that as kids of that age want to rock a more grown-up style when your daughter is under ten, it can make buying suitable clothes for her a bit of a challenge.
My daughter is now eight and I have seen a change in the way she dresses over the last few months, she is still very much a “girly girl.” She likes comfortable, feminine clothes and much prefers bright colours and patterns. Whilst two years ago you would usually find her in a dress, she still loves dresses but accepts that leggings, skirts and shorts can be more practical and I have just invested in my first ever skort for her (mainly because all of the other girls in school have them).
When I was approached by Fashion World to do a review of some of their clothing range for kids, I made the fatal mistake of showing my daughter the website and asked her what she thought. She is pretty independent now about clothes and I thought she could choose a few items to review. Big mistake. She loved it all and had a very long list of things that she “just had to have”.
Eventually, we narrowed the list down and a couple of days later when the parcel arrived, I have to say that I think she made some really good choices.
These Girls Badge Denim Shorts was the one item that I chose. I knew that she wouldn’t choose them but that she would love wearing them and a decent pair of shorts is perfect for a girl on the go.
These shorts are really well made and will last all summer and beyond. Perfect for a summer wardrobe, these cute shorts have four different badge motifs which my daughter absolutely loves and they can be worn with t-shirts vest tops or over the top of a swimsuit. She loves them and says that they are really comfortable and I know they will get a lot of wear over the next few months.
My daughter is still a young lady who loves a dress and her first choice was this gorgeous Monsoon Robyn dress. Monsoon is one of her favourite shops and it is easy to see why and Monsoon is one of the brands available from Fashion World.
The Robyn dress is 100% cotton, so really light and we love the details. It has one strap and one ruffle shoulder with pretty embroidery detail and it is also edged with tassels. You could also team this dress with leggings if you wanted to.
Next on the list was another Monsoon dress, the Monsoon Kecia Dress. This beautifully striking blue dress with floral patterns is really light and perfect for warm days or parties.
Again, this dress has added detailing around the neckline with rows of gems and sequins adding extra glamour.
Every new outfit deserves a good pair of shoes don’t you think? Well, my daughter wholeheartedly agreed and decided that if she was updating her summer collection, she needed a new pair of sandals. These TKD Girls Leather Star Print Sandals are amazingly good value at just £12 and they go perfectly with all of the other clothes.
Finally, a new swimming costume was the last choice. My daughter swims regularly and as a result has to have a new swimsuit every few months, The Monsoon Ria Swimsuit has a really eye-catching design and the colours are perfect.
So that is my daughter’s new capsule wardrobe for the summer from Fashion World, all great value and quality. Now all we need is some sun …
