As I’ve said before, I do love stripes on boys. I think they can look really smart, but also brighten up an otherwise (often) dull colour palette. Let’s face it, a lot of the time, darker colour bottoms are easier for boys and more readily available.
N has got some quite bright shorts though, so often the bright t-shirts clash. However, I found this Joules polo shirt in the sale last Winter and snapped it up for him to grow into. It’s a really bright rainbow stripe design, and is so versatile, it looks great with so many colours. For his non-birthday party he wore it with red shorts which did mean a little bit too much red going on (although he loved his outfit and kept looking at himself in the mirror).
For our visit to Warwick Castle at the weekend he wore the polo shirt with his burgundy shorts. Ok, so they weren’t quite a colour match, but they did dull down the brights a little bit.
Shame his sunhats never seem to match his clothes, but at least this blue one has the same tones in, even if it’s a pattern clash. I guess the fashion trends are always going on about putting different colours together, so maybe we’re ahead of the game on that front?!
N always seems so comfy in shorts, it’s a shame it’ll be trouser weather again soon.
