Spring hasn’t quite sprung yet but whilst the winter blues still linger we can’t help but get excited for spring summer fashion and what it has in store for 2020. It’s never too early to think about what you’ll be dressing your little one in over the next few months – especially when Marie-Chantal has just launched a new collection.
Marie-Chantal is well-loved for its boutique childrenswear that focuses on classic and timeless designs. Each collection has a unique spin and offers something fabulously British for every occasion. Both stylish and comfortable, you are guaranteed to find the perfect addition to their wardrobe that they’ll never want to take off.
Dress Them Up Or Dress Them Down
As we draw towards spring, everything gradually gets a little lighter – including our clothes. We’re imagining daisies, dandelions and the smell of fresh-cut grass, but is your child’s wardrobe ready for spring?
It’s time to remove the winter jackets and add a splash of pastel with Marie-Chantal’s playful new collection designed to give you options. Dress them up or dress them down – these clothes are timeless and perfect to hand down to siblings and cousins.
Now that spring is on the horizon, it’s inevitable that our diaries will be filled up with christenings, weddings and other exciting events and occasions.
In Marie-Chantal’s spring summer collection there are plenty of dresses for you to choose from. All the dresses aim to have them feeling confident and free, and the Summer Tweed Dress does just that.
Tweed is no longer a thing of the past. It’s effortlessly chic and perfect for any occasion. The sequins add a glimpse of glamour whilst the soft pink bow a touch of cuteness, this dress offers it all.
Every girl deserves to feel like a princess. What we love so much about Marie-Chantal is that each dress is cleverly designed to make your child look good but feel good too. In their own words “the spring summer collection has been designed with her lifestyle in mind” – and we feel this dress does just that.
This shade of blue is perfect for the brighter days ahead and will leave your girl feeling sassy and sophisticated. The dress is sleeveless and has unique ruffles around the sleeves and collar. Finally, the flowy skirt makes it perfect for dancing – there’s no holding back in this dress.
A high-quality jacket is a staple piece in anyone’s wardrobe, including your children’s. If you want them looking smart on the streets this spring this might be your next purchase.
Not only is this jacket smart but super stylish too. We love the classic stripes and the two signature MC buttons at the front. Depending on the occasion, button them up or wear apart for a more relaxed look.
Pair this with a plain t-shirt and the Emmit Seersucker Shorts to complete the look. If you haven’t heard already, the short suit is an inevitable trend that is going to take over the fashion world this spring, so why not get ahead of the game?
When dressing your child in a shirt, you want it to be comfortable and soft on their skin. This tonal blue and white classic shirt is made from fine cotton poplin and is fitting for any summer occasion.
The shirt is unique in style and will have them standing out from the crowd. We love the quirky paisley design and the tiny Tino crown subtly hand-embroidered on the front in blue. Simple but sweet!
Why not match up with a brother or friend with the Elijah shirt, available for younger children aged 6M to 24M.
It wouldn’t feel right talking about a spring-summer collection without a pretty, floral dress and we have instantly fallen in love with this one.
Around this time each year, the shirt dress trend comes back into play and for good reason too. As the weather gets warmer, your child needs a dress that is soft and airy and can be easily slipped on and off. This dress is made from soft cotton and has signature MC buttons that run down the front for a simple fit.
We feel the finer details of this dress complete the look and will make your child feel pretty as can be. Our favourites are the cute round collar and the bow tie on the back. Choose from the exclusive Fleur d’été print or without to create a classic summer look.
Another personal favourite of ours is the Edwina Apron dress. We feel this is a little more casual than the Elouise dress but still has the potential to be the perfect spring summer dress.
Imagine picnics at the park with your basket of treats and warm blanket, we get excited just thinking about it. This dress is light, airy and non-restrictive if they want to enjoy some time playing in the sunshine.
The Apron Dress is a summer classic but that doesn’t mean it can’t be worn in the cooler weather. Pair it with an embroidered onesie or a cardigan for those cooler days and nights – versatility at its finest.
Say goodbye to failing to convince your child to pack on the layers and hello to the Cherrie cardigan. That’s right, a cardigan that your child won’t be able to resist in the cool spring weather.
One touch of the soft cotton and cashmere blend and that’s it, they’ll never want to take it off. You can purchase this cardigan in pale pink or blue and both feature a contrasting pop of colour on the inside front placket and pockets – a nod to the never-ending neon fashion craze.
The cardigan is complemented with five buttons down the front as well as the Marie-Chantal logo just above the left, bottom hem – this is a top choice from us
If your child is going through the ‘too cool for school days’ where nothing you buy them seems to be good enough – we might have just found a game-changer.
This classic grey sweater with a motorbike print is sure to impress them. We think the yellow tipping on the neck, cuff and hem helps to differentiate itself from regular sweatshirts on the market and will leave them with a fresh new attitude.
What we love about this sweatshirt is its versatility. They can choose to wear this in the park or out for dinner – the possibilities are endless. No one is too old to channel their inner adrenaline junkie!
Are you looking for something perfect for playtime? Something so easy to slip on that they’ll never want to take it off – we think we’ve found it. Not only are these suspender shorts adorable but practical for those busy babies who just want to be outside having fun.
Pair with one of their embroidered onesies and a pair of their favourite trainers and ta-da, you have the recipe for the perfect spring outfit. Both colourful and floral, this piece represents happiness and play and isn’t one you should think twice about buying – go for it!
Is there anything quite as practical or versatile than an overall? The Emerson seersucker overall is one of our most loved pieces within the collection due to its ability to be worn just about anywhere.
Heading to a christening or just a trip to the park? Pair with some smart brogues or a white pair of trainers and off you go. The sky’s the limit with this new arrival.
We couldn’t think of a better colour combo to help us embrace the spring-summer and the signature buttons help to finish the look off perfectly.
These are just a handful of items from Marie-Chantal’s stunning spring-summer collection. If you are interested in exploring their new arrivals further, visit their website to see what else they have in store.
