Honest advice from a French Style Icon : Ines de la Fressange
K I D S | S T Y L E
- Avoid too many loud prints. Just because they're small doesn't mean you should dress them like clowns.
- Don't hesitate to dress them all in black. It's totally dirt-proof and if you want to brighten things up, add colorful shoes, a scarf, and a bright coat. People over the age of 10 can copy that ideas too!
- Head off a full-scale fashion rebellion by always letting them choose a least one item in the outfit. Too bad if your son insists on a fluorescent orange shirt with his favorite super hero or your daughter wants to go out in a pink tutu (or vice versa!). We've all committed our share of youthful follies.
