There are few things cuter than seeing kids all dressed up (aside from puppy videos); when kids are wearing coordinating outfits or matching their siblings and friends, it is just adorable.

That's exactly why Melijoe is a popular choice for parents, find out more in a previous article down the bottom! For now, onto the trends:
Your little trendsetter
Going on an adventure
It's a favorite of mine and is sure to be a favorite for the kids; who doesn't love to get dressed up like they're going out to explore?! You often find that kids style reflects what's going on in the adult-word and as the utility trend begins to take off for the grown-ups, a similar smaller version is happening for the kids.
This trend is pretty perfect for children! You can maintain a stylish look with all the practical elements; cargo pants, utility shorts, some sensible sandals or boots, and a touch of animal instinct and leopard print to complete the look. Also, the sandy/khaki look which suits the adventurer's style won't easily look dirty as they are already dulled colors. For the kids, be a little bold with your choice of combinations and bring together a khaki and floral prints to find the perfect balance of strong and cute.
Brands which do this look well include Scotch & Soda, Marni, Zadig & Voltaire.
Playing on the streets
Keeping in theme with what's popular with adults clothing, the streetwear trend continues to influence kids style right now. However, Melijoe has a different interpretation of the streetwear trend for your little trendsetter as they've focused on graffiti and paint splatter details - you might begin to notice these across collections from popular streetwear brands such as MSGM, Dsaquared2, Reebok etc.
Discover your kid's new statement piece for spring/summer 2019 - be it a graffiti style shirt, paired with some regular blue denim jeans and complete the look with some sock-sneakers and cap. It's a simple look which allows for a child's creativity as they can choose to mix and match any colors; when you're wearing a wild print there are very little rules - surely this is popular amongst the kids!
Denim, always a classic but this year its a favorite: to make sure the kids really are little trendsetters check out the embroidery + graffiti detailing you find on denim today:
Don't block colors
In a similar sense, this summer 2019 kids style means actually encouraging little trendsetters to make big decisions about bold colors to create ensembles of bright and bubbly looks. What do we mean? Well, color block prints are back! Not really surprising for the spring/summer 2019 but there's a fresh new feel to the look this year. It feels like this has been designed just for kids out there, whether they are sporty or arty, the endless combinations of color block styles mean that the only limit is a child's imagination.
From Lacoste to Pepe Jeans, there will definitely be some variation of color block print available to your kids.
Loving little looks
Melijoe have dubbed it rustic chic and Fashiola thought it was more along the lines of romanticized fashion but they both come to a similar look. It's the sort of lovely lace, florals, frills and everything you might traditionally think about little kids style - but injected with a modern, contemporary edge. Brands like Chloe, Monnalisa, Stella McCartney have been perfectly pulling off this look for a while now and it's starting to delicately spread across the world of fashion making your kid the ultimate little trendsetter.
