Trendy Tuesday - stripes and unisex fashion

Stripes.  I love them.  They are classic, always in style, they look fantastic on pretty much everyone (as long as you wear the right type).  I love to wear them myself, hubby loves them too and we both love them on the boys!

Somehow, until recently, I'd never heard of the Little Bird range by Jools Oliver at Mothercare.  Once I discovered it though, I had to make a few purchases.  It seems Jools shares my love of stripes and retro style.

Another brand big on stripes are Polarn O Pyret.  Their classic range is all stripes and they also have range called the "circus collection" which features their classic stripe in some beautiful bold colours.  I purchased a pair of tights for Felix from them, and a top for him to grow into.

Green & yellow sleepsuit - Rainbow Kids
Bodywarmer & wellies - Little Bird by Jools at Mothercare
Stripy top & tights - Circus Range from Polarn O Pyret

I think what I love most about these ranges and about stripes in particular is how unisex they are.  Lots of items from PO.P and Little Bird could be worn by a girl or a boy so it makes them really easy to pass on to subsequent children.  Love it!

  1. Lovely stripes! I especially like the bright wellies. I love the kids in nautical stripes for summer.

    1. They are fab, aren't they!! Stripes always look fantastic I think.x

  2. Felix always looks so bright and bold, i love his little face :) I'm loving the Polarn O Pyret Circus range, Alex has a top that came today :)

    1. Thank you! Thankfully both of my boys seem to suit what I put them in! POP are always a favourite of mine but I'm so in love with the circus range. I've always loved their stripes, but prefer stripes with brighter colours than just the red and navy! x


Thank you for leaving me a comment! I appreciate every one!
