Styling for... Summer weddings

Summer wedding styling for children can be tough - although we want them to look like little Fairies and Princes in the photos - the reality of a long day and warm weather and your choice of outfit needs more consideration than whether it's going to clash with the bridesmaids. Don't worry - we're put together a shoppable edit of looks for boys and girls, ranging from baby to tween. Look for cool cottons, easy shapes so they are comfortable and most importantly for us, pieces that you know they will wear again so they are a good wardrobe investment...

Summer florals

That pre-teen age is a tricky one when looking for smart partywear. Too big for 'princess dresses' but still wanting something young and fun, this maxi tiered floral skirt is perfect for a 'grown up' look. Pair with a pretty frill blouse and sandals for the big day, then they can wear it again with trainers and tee all summer long.
