Baby clothes shopping can be a minefield. As well as making your baby look as cute and stylish as possible, you’ve got to try and find something practical (baby sick, anyone?), comfortable and good value – they’ll grow out of it by the second, after all. And while us grown women have many a style icon to take inspiration from, baby trendsetters are pretty thin on the ground. Of course, there’s the offspring of Hollywood’s hottest – we’re talking about the likes of Harper Beckham, Suri Cruise, Blue Ivy and North West, but there’s another tot that’s sent stylish mummies into a fashion frenzy for their own offspring: Princess Charlotte. Yep, much like her big bro George, Princess Charlotte has some serious selling power. Her John Lewis snowsuit went like hot cakes after snaps of the family on a skiing holiday surfaced, while that floral pink M&H dress she wore on her 6-month-birthday-anniversary sold out within a matter of seconds.
In honour of her first birthday, then, we’ve put together an edit of the most Princess Charlotte-worthy baby clothes on the high street now. And just to make things that little bit easier (some of us have nappies to change, eh?!), here’s a breakdown of exactly what you should be looking for:
Peter pan collars
Feminine full-skirted frocks
As for which stores to head to, everywhere from Debenhams, Mamas & Papas and John Lewis to Matalan and Next stock baby clothes so stylish we wish they came in adult sizes. They’re certainly not out of budget, either – prices start from a purse-friendly £2.99. We know. Cheers, Charlotte. *Curtsey*.
