For little girls: Cool, Casual & Chic Style from Pumpkin Patch

For Lil Pumpkin and my daily style, we prefer something a bit more cool, casual and chic. Clothes that are comfy and functional, yet still stylish. Basics with tailored cuttings, statement accessory pieces, bold colourful prints or neutrals.. simply a mixture of relaxed fashion with class.

This is perfect even for work or weekend brunches, but I don't mean just slapping on some kinda t-shirt, shorts and flip-flops. Very comfortable yes, but also pretty sloppy heh. It might surprise you, but some effort is needed to look effortless ;)

We managed to find some everyday gems at Pumpkin Patch with their Autumn/Winter 13 collection. All are 100% made from cotton with interesting details like the crochet lace sleeves {Black Lace Trim Raglan}, bold hearts prints {Almond Cream Heart Printed Tee} or even 3-tiered frilly skirts {Deep Cobalt Anglaise Tiered Eva Dress}.

These are pieces that I would totally get for myself too if they came in adult sizes or if I could fit in their largest kid size, which is for 12 year olds by the way :P Apparently some of my other girl friends will to because they have asked me about it haha. Kids clothes are really so trendy nowadays.

Love that they are all very easy to wear and clean too. I hate getting high-maintenance clothes that need to be dry-cleaned or washed by hand!

Tips to dressing casual chic:
  • Have classic, basic wardrobe staples like dark denim jeans, white tees, black leggings etc.
  • Layer and match different fabrics and styles with the basics to show-off your personality
  • Don't forget the comfort and choose natural fabrics that are breathable and easy-to-wear
  • Make sure the clothes fit properly & flatter your body type i.e. not baggy or too tight
  • Accessories are important from turning an outfit from drab to fab but keep them simple
  • Aim to look natural, well-groomed and well.. chic in your dressing, hairdo and make-up
