Unicorns: Girls Spring / Summer 2018 Trend
Posted on May 18 2018
All things unicorns have been trending ever since Starbucks introduced their sugar-filled unicorn frappe in 2017. It made unicorns into the cultural craze. The popularity continues to soar, shared by adults and kids alike. In fact, there are more than 8 MILLION posts on Instagram in relation to the hashtag, #unicorn, which varies from posts of cupcakes to nail art. The vibrant colors complement the unicorn figure, emphasizing its brightness and positivity. Children’s clothing has been a constant platform to show the diverse options that unicorns can be used for. And honestly, what better trend than unicorns? It’s fashionable in every aspect, which just makes us head over heels for this colorful mythical creature.
As Natalie Ratcliffe, homeware designer at George Home, once said, “Unicorns give us a sense of something magical and special – and we know there’s a real desire for that feeling in our lives right now. They appeal to customers of all ages – including those with childhood memories of favorite things like My Little Pony.”
We wholeheartedly agree and wanted to share with you some of our favorite unicorn kids’ clothing pieces that are absolutely perfect for summer. Warning: you might actually get jealous that the clothes are only for little girls - because we definitely are! Here are some examples of the unicorn pieces we just absolutely adore:
The Tutu Du Monde mystical unicorn tutu dress is a best-seller for obvious reasons. Can we please get one of our own in adult sizes?! With adjustable straps and stretchy material that gives max comfort to skip, spin, and saute. This dress just screams dance party or general good time. Perfect for anywhere really and especially for a necessary photo shoot to post on Instagram! Please anybody, tag us with this dress on little gals so we can say ‘oooh’ and cause baby fever. Let this dress also be an example that unicorns can also be very elegant with subtle colors when deemed necessary. Pair with another fashion statement from the very elegant designer Tutu Du Monde- the Evija Maraou fur jacket in Black with a high-bun hairdo.
This Submarine pink one-piece sprawled with unicorn print is perfect for pool parties and cookouts. The laced up sides offers an absolutely unique touch and is a different take from the common rainbow design (although we love that too). This one-piece will truly stand out. Great for young kids who love sparkles! They’ll absolutely adore the way it looks on them. Also a perfect Instagram pool party photo-op. How to make the picture more iconic? Pair it with the ‘Ooahooah’ Unicorn Rainbow Straw Hat. Preorder it for the instagram fame. It’ll be worth it!
This Flowers by Zoe black romper offers a subtle touch, which balances the rainbow unicorns nicely, making it a playful, yet chic outfit. It’s also made out of super comfortable, high-quality material. Your cute little girl will rock this romper anywhere, anyplace! Pair it with a two-bun hairdo or a side braid with the shoes ‘Melissa Mini Melissa Mini Polibolha III’ in pink, which you can also find on our site.
Your child will be stylin’ at the sleepover in this adorable Esme two piece pajama set. The great thing about this pj set is that it has breathable fabric that offers extreme comfort for hot summer nights. Got to look as cute during the day as you would at night! If summer nights are cold, pair it with the cutest socks from “Bangbang Copenhagen” ‘Cats High Socks’ available on our website. Also, don’t let these those two items be the only intimate wear you buy- also consider ‘Esme’s sets of panties. Styles include solid, panda, princess and hearts found on the website.
Hats & Accessories
If you wanted a non-clothing item that still features the unicorn, without looking to uni-corny (get it :p ), you came to the perfect place! Add a little magical unicorn touch to any outfit with this stunning metallic gold crossbody bag. This is great for kids going out with their parents for a subtle look that’s fashionably on trend! Pair it with the ‘Ooahooah’ Glitter Unicorn Clip your little gal can clip in hair that matches the bag, but with glitter!
Those summer days can get scorching, and kids hate sunburns. This hat is absolutely necessary and will keep the sunburns away on beach days. It’s also a perfect excuse to rep the love for unicorns. The sparkling lettering and bright pink coloring will make a statement that children love and want to show off! However, if the gal still screams for more sparkles AND unicorns...this would be a perfect combination with the “Unicorn Sequin Bomber Jacket” under ‘Lola and the Boys’. Pre Order it now along with this hat!
