WHEN it comes to style, the world of children’s fashion is one of the fastest growing in the UK.
With another baby boom on the horizon in 2019, we look at what to expect in the trends with children’s wear experts and Liverpool independent business, Strawberry Children
Based in Aigburth Road, Strawberry Children is a familiar haunt of famous mums and dads wanting to ensure their littluns’ are top of the style ladder.
Stocking affordable brands as well as high-end designers, this one-stop boutique caters for new-borns to teenagers.
In 2019, it’s all about standing out. Bright, bold colours are being encouraged for men and women alike, and it goes for the kids as well.
For the baby of the family, spending a little extra on a designer coat and accessories will pay off, as great quality truly lasts. Beat those New Year winter blues with some matching accessories, snuggling up in mittens and hats.
For toddlers, you can never be too careful when it comes to good shoes. Make sure they are both stylish and comfortable in secure pumps, wellies and sturdy but soft sandals for the summertime.
Shopping independent has never been so important, and for the latest looks Strawberry offers something different – a unique shopping experience and the opportunity to have your little darling stand out from the crowd.
Tips for 2019 children’s styles
- Don’t over-do it with one shade
Mixing colours will be huge in 2019. Try being bold with a mix of two primaries, or add a dash of colour with a hat, tights or headband.
- Think ahead
The best thing about dressing kids under 14-years is that you can predict about what size they will be next season, so shop ahead to ensure you get your hands on the most-wanted pieces before they are gone
- Remember – comfort is key
Looking great and being comfortable need to go hand-in-hand – especially for the little ones. Ensure when choosing clothes that you go with something they will ‘grow into’ rather than something a bit snug. Remember – between the ages of 0-6 years your little bundle will grow faster than any other time in their life.

- Prints are staying
Although some parents steer away from trendy animal print for younger members of the family, there are some very tasteful fabrics launching in the new season. For a new take on animal print, try a floral or rainbow pattern. Pepper in some block colours and don’t be afraid to go bright.
- Happy feet
Each year, the trend in children’s footwear adapts slightly. In 2019 the classic ‘shoes and socks’ look will be hitting the mini catwalks. Smart pumps for boys and ‘Mary Jane’ styles for little ladies are expected to be all the range. There’s no need to buy a dozen pairs of shoes though. The right shade of shoe will compliment several fabrics, so invest in a selection of coloured socks to set off the outfit.
We all love to indulge in spending on our children, or children in our lives, so don’t be afraid to try something new, have a little fun and make sure you grab the camera at every opportunity.
