Unusual cowboy fashion - plain fedora hat, romper with buttoned down shirt with cut-out white collars, patterned cowboots and a very obedient pony :)

Vintage Wednesday

Vintage Wenesdays is where I share vintage / retro photographs of kids fashion. For inspiration, fun, discussion and for us to go "awwwww"

Isn't their stark look so stylish and era-perfect? Love their white dresses with embriodery and unusual hemline, ankle-strap black shoes and mop-haircuts. Don't miss the 2 non-identical twins in stripes socks!

Banana yellow, Mint blue-green, pistachio green, sky blue, candy pink and peach orange. We aren’t talking about your local sorbet parlour :) These soft and sophisticated hues are our choice in ethnic dressing for kids this festive season.

Gentle, soft and sweet. For girls and boys.

Pastel shades are a pleasant alternative to the erstwhile bright ethnic clothes usually seen during festivities. Sorbet colours add freshness and are liberally used for outfits for both girls and boys alike.

There is much celebration in these soft tones without the noise :) Choose from creamy peaches and mellow yellows to wrap your little ones in the festival spirit.

The look is gentle yet rich.

Not too bright, yet very happy.

Accessorize-friendly with all shades of metallic.

Most ethnic outfits by designers carry some gold / silver accents to add richness.  These could be trimmings on a dupatta, potli-buttons on the outfit or a patch of embroidery. If you wish to add more sparkle, choose from any shade of metallic accessories or ascents.

Silver jhumkis, gold juttis, rose-gold ribbons, dull-gold trimmings – all go very well with these subtle colours. Choose shiny trinkets that your child prefers.

Another great way to wear pastels is to mix and match the shades.

You can go wear all-colour or mix pale blue with soft pink. Try banana yellow with creamy tones. The options are endless and can re invent an old outfit, while keeping the style quotient in place. Incorporating pastel colours, either subtly or boldly into your child’s outfit says you know your trends!
