Polka dots. They just seem to make everything so much more fun and whimsical. Maybe they remind us of childhood carnivals and balloons; or, our favorite candies like bubblegum balls and gobstoppers. Whatever hold it has over us, every generation seems to love them and Summer 2013 children’s fashion trends are no exception. This season, designers are having more fun than ever by pairing them with bold chevron stripes.
Summer 2013 Nursery Room Décor, Children’s Fashions and children’s
party decor will see the whimsical zig zag of chevron stripes combined
with polka dots in everything from crib bedding to gift wrap. Look for
it in rainbow brights and ice cream sherberts, pastels and sophisticated
grays and navy too.
Create charming and understated ambiance in your baby’s nursery by
adding a touch with one or two pieces or create a festival of fun with
complete collections like these by New Arrivals, Inc. There is no going
wrong with chevrons and polka dots and we don’t foresee them going away
anytime soon so, have fun creating the looks you love!
Add a little zing to your child’s wardrobe, too. Chevron stripes and
polka dots are on everything from dresses to shoes and hair
accessories. And they’re not just for girls. You’ll find chevron
stripes on boy’s shirts and swim trunks for a zap of fun!
If you’re crafty, then put your thinking cap on and try creating your
own design. If you need a little help, you can make the adorable
onesies below by following the tutorial we found on Finley and Oliver.
Continue your love for polka dots and chevron stripes with baby
shower and birthday decor. You can even have your baby shower postage
stamps created with your favorite color combination. Yes, this
generation has continued the love of all things polka dot and added a
new twist, ah-hem, we mean zig zag, to a classic favorite.
