Style icons start young these days, with Suri Cruise, Blue Ivy Carter, and Harper Beckham paving the way for fashionable tots. Their secret? Well, apart from a team of stylists, an unimaginable bank balance, and a whole lot of pressure to always look adorable (nobody said it was easy to be a trendy toddler), these kids always dress for the occasion. Thankfully, most kids have a fairly limited range of social appointments, often revolving around some messy playtimes and some even messier parties. When it comes to dressing the part for these engagements, three factors are key: comfort, wash-ability, and cuteness.
That’s where Paula and Baby comes in. This Thai-based brand offers a line of clothes that checks all the boxes. They’re adorable, simple, and easily washed when they, inevitably, get covered in mud, chocolate, and goodness knows what else.
Sweet and sophisticated, the range includes candy-striped rompers, spotted a-line dresses, chino shorts, and relaxed tees. There’s no gaudy colours or crop tops here; a Paula and Baby kid is an effortlessly stylish one, indeed.
These pretty dresses and too-cool-for-school sweatpants have the versatility to look great when they’re box fresh and charmingly cute when they’re smeared with cake and ice cream, too. Who couldn’t use a little more of those kinds of pieces in their wardrobe?
And, whether your little ones opt for a day serenely playing, climbing all over the furniture in your home, or doing forward rolls in the mall and generally testing the wear and tear of both their wardrobe and your patience, this range will stand up to it.
Best of all is the fact the pieces are so easy to mix and match. Classic colours and simple dresses, tees, and trousers mean you can put together an outfit Suri Cruise would throw a jealous, flailing tantrum over without having to devote too much time to its construction. A Paula and Baby kid is a little too cool for all that overthinking, after all.
