If you’re a parent you’ve probably experienced before that feeling of frustration when September begins, everybody’s excited (hmmmm…) to start a new chapter at school, but unexpectedly the sleeves and legs of your kid’s pants seem to be … shrunk.
Don’t blame the washing mashine – our little ones are not little anymore and they definitely need new clothes.
The children clothing paradise
exists in Europe – it’s France. It used to be a surprise for me since I always thought “Parisian chic” relates only to adults! But the truth is – little French people learn how to be effortlesly stylish even before they do the first step. Because not only their moms and dads look great, but the way they are dressed – totally comfy but also according to new trends – is also impressive! Note that in France designers use way more colors and darker, “adult”, shades than only pastel pinks and blues.
If you’re very busy visiting Paris, Cannes or Nice (yes, there’s a lot to do!) stop at any department store – they carry a big numner of French clothing brands along with widely known names and high fashion for kids (Baby Dior, Gucci, Chloé, Stella McCartney, to name a few).
