For others, a little slice of luxury isn’t just reserved for special occasions for their little ones. Whether it be because of the increase in ‘Mummy and me’ dressing or just down to the fact that you pride yourself in your children looking like the best versions of themselves, high fashion for toddlers and adolescents is at an all time high—just don’t expect they’ll be picking up the check themselves.
Whilst COVID certainly robbed many of the freedom of a normal childhood—the ongoing effects of online learning and isolation is certainly apparent—we can’t help but think that our own offspring deserve the chance to be spoiled as we prepare to reenter the “new normal”.
For some, indulging your child in a little luxury may just mean wearing that outfit you planned for your Christmas photos on more than one day of the year, whereas others may be more inclined to invest in what may become a family heirloom one day.
Before you turn your nose up at the idea of dressing your child in designer labels—and for the record, we’re not advocating for your tiny tot to don a luxury brand from head to toe—we implore you to familiarise yourself with the best brands on the market, creating the chicest, most coveted brands for children.

The classic Burberry check is timeless, so know that a piece from their children line will last a lifetime, and eventually make for the perfect ‘hand me down’.
