Kids’ trousers are, it seems to me, essentially a nightmare in terms of sizing. By the time they fit on the waist, they’re too short in the leg and I really can’t believe the number of toddler trousers with complicated belts – I struggle to work some of them out myself, so goodness knows how a two year old is supposed to cope. Braces are a great solution to these problems – and they look ultra-cute. Previously they’ve either been a bit twee and adorned with teddies, or completely fabulous but hard to get hold of (remember Kat posting about Molo’s star design back in the day?)
So I was delighted with this find among the newness that has recently landed chez Kidston in the guise of these cheeky little rainbow numbers, top, complete with brass fastenings. So 70s and so adorable, I can’t wait to (literally) snap up a pair for Alfie. They also come in a more subdued cowboy design in navy, above, with stetson, cactus, sheriff badge and boot motifs if you’re not into the rainbow thang. Â£12 each.
PS: I’m not usually a CK fan, but I was pleasantly surprised with the latest additions to the children’s collection. Aside from the braces,I can see the star rucksack, above, Â£25, being a big hit.
