From Flowers by Zoe to Malibu Sugar, designers are adding color with rainbows
Posted on August 22 2018
Once again, the fashion-forward brands we carry at Me and Kay are out in front when it comes to style. From athleisure looks from Flowers by Zoe to must-have Malibu Sugar clothing, you’ll find fabulous, fun styles that embrace this season’s top trends.
We can’t get enough of the colorful rainbows that are trending! The forecast definitely calls for smiles when you deck your daughter out in some of these colorful looks…
Don’t you wish these joggers by Malibu Sugar were available in your size?!
We paired the Malibu Sugar joggers with a butter-soft distressed denim bomber jacket from Flowers By Zoe for a colorful combo.
According to Dayna Isom Johnson, Etsy’s Trend Expert, “The biggest kid-friendly trends of the season are all about helping your mini-me stand out and make their dazzling, one-of-a-kind personality known.”
If you were as obsessed with watching the XXX show Make It, starring Amy Poehler and XXX, over the summer as we were, you will have seen Dayna, who served as one of the judges. You’ll also know that she has fantastic taste and has a real understanding of design trends.
We were thrilled to see that Dayna included the rainbows we love so much in the annual update on the fashions our daughters (who are growing up entirely too fast!) crave.
Here are some more great rainbow options available from Me and Kay that will help your one-in-a-million kid shine:
You can’t have too many rainbow joggers! This cute and comfy pair in soft grey is from Flowers By Zoe, which also offers a matching Grey Rainbow Sweatshirt!
You can’t go wrong with these made-in-the-USA Terez kids leggings that combine rainbows with the mania for leggings adorned with fun prints.
Dayna says, “Rainbows are the ultimate sign of happiness and optimism.” We couldn’t agree more!
The Etsy trend report says anything goes when it comes to rainbows - from literal interpretations to more abstract versions.
Tutu du Monde offers a sparkly swirl of all the things she loves – from donuts to rainbows!
This colorful rainbow-print tank is the perfect topper for a pair of Terez kids leggings! She’ll love it! (Wouldn’t you?!)
The annual Etsy trend report is based on some Etsy’s most-searched for items. In addition to rainbows, some of Dayna’s favorite kid-friendly trends this year include:
- Inclusive Toys: As Dayna points out, “It’s so important for children of all backgrounds and abilities to have the opportunity to see themselves in the toys and games they play with.”
- Activism: “Today’s families are more engaged than ever in social, political, and environmental issues,” Dayna says. The experts at Etsy point out that “It’s never too early to start educating little ones on the importance of being an active citizen of the world. Whether you’re volunteering at your local senior center, learning about sustainable food production at a nearby farm, or just taking your rescue pup out for a stroll, consider bringing your kiddos along for the ride and helping them dress the part with an on-message T-shirt or pin.”
If it makes young girls feel empowered, it will never go out of fashion as far as we’re concerned!
