Since I began this series, although I’ve created home and womens’ fashion collections — based on the Pantone shades — I haven’t focussed on kids’ fashion at all.
I guess, when you think of fashion for little ones, brights spring to mind or — at the very least — the stereotypical ‘pink for a girl, blue for a boy’.
A colour that I certainly wouldn’t immediately associate with childrenswear is the next colour in the series; Pantone Sandstone.
Even though sandy, rusty shades are a fairly standard fixture in an adults’ wardrobe — I’m thinking shoes and belts — this particular shade is not something that you’d immediately pick as a colour for the littlest members of our family.
But never one to shy away from a challenge, I’ve put together a little board of kids wear based on Pantone Sandstone.
Colour Your World in Pantone Sandstone
1. Pug Tee — Tesco
2. Pom Pom Scarf, Jigsaw Junior — John Lewis
3. Twist Cable Pom Pom Hat — Next
4. Boys’ Leather Belt — H&M
5. Cotton Trousers — H&M
6. Apricot TuTu — Bob & Blossom
7. Leather Plimsolls — Zara
8. Knitted Jacket with Hood — Zara
Although I’ve cheated slightly and gone for peachier tones in some instances, it just goes to show that — for cool boys and girls — Sandstone could work really well!
I’ve started to put a Pinterest board together — womens’ fashion and accessories, rather than kids’ — but in all honesty finding pins in this shade was really tricky! I think this is going to be something I’ll add to over time as it’s looking pretty sparse at the moment!
