March is upon us, which means Easter is fast approaching and with it, hopefully, comes the start of the warmer spring weather.
So, what better time to indulge in some gorgeous kids spring style for your little darlings and get them kitted out ready for the Easter break?
Spring is a lovely time for little girls’ fashion. There are so many cute girls dresses and floral patterns around at this time of year that you can’t help but feel desperate for the change of season.
Traditionally, springtime — especially Easter in the modern western world — is a time when people wear and show off new clothes. The origins of this tradition are often thought to be directly linked to the Easter holiday but, in fact, the idea has roots in many religions, not just Christianity.
The pagans, for example, believed wearing new clothes in spring brought good luck. The Iranians celebrate their New Year on the first day of spring and wear new clothes to signify renewal and optimism — a tradition rooted in their ancient pre-Islamic past — while the Chinese wear new clothes for their spring festival, Lunar New Year, to mark new beginnings.
Nowadays, the tradition is less set in stone and most people wear new clothes simply to look their best on Easter Sunday or to attend an Easter festival or event with their children.
Regardless of your reasons, spring is always a great time to look into updating the wardrobe of yourself and your little ones.
