Party Wear for Stylish Kids
November 2016 | Words by Anna Koukis

Here at Ray & Robin we love an excuse for a party, so with the festive season looming we have been on the hunt for beautiful party wear for some time now.  Ensure your little ones are the best dressed party guests this season with our selection of the best party wear below!

What is cuter than seeing a child rocking a trend?  A child rocking a trend in an outfit you would actually wear yourself!  I mean, how cool is this two piece suit from Shan & Toad?  Matchy-matchy is a look we have been down with for a while now and what’s not to love with this look?  Velvet and hot pink! Yes please.  At Ray & Robin we are all for little girls having an alternative to dresses for the party season.
Boyswear can tend to be a bit more tame than girls party wear so what a pleasant surprise to see these fabulous shirts in Wolf & Rita’s The Lost Notebook Collection.  We LOVE the Roberto Houses shirt, funky and fun and definitely not playing it safe, this is one for the cool boys.
Wolf & Rita’s garments are lovingly made in Portugal and each collection tells a beautiful story.  The Lost Notebook was discovered at the beginning of the twentieth century in a flea market in Paris.  The popular sketches were drawn by an unknown artist.  They were the main inspiration for the AW16/17 collection.
Nothing says PARTY more than bright colours and wild prints.  Look no further than No Added Sugar’s new collection for an outfit that will have your child feeling like the belle of the ball.  To the left you can see Ray & Robin’s Deeanna modelling the wonderful Florence Look which you can shop here.  If the dress is a little over budget (£89.00) but you have fallen in love with the print, no fear!  You can buy the fabulous head band for a smidgen of the price here.

Wild and Gorgeous

Another show stopping matching outfit.  Not for the faint hearted, but then how many 8 year old boys are?  Wild and Gorgeous have nailed the casual yet oh so cool party wear for boys with their new range.  If you do think double tartan is a bit too OTT of course you can buy the trousers and the shirt separately here and here.
Dance Shoes
Are these ballerina flats even real?  They are what every girly girls dreams are made of!  The only place to shop for dance shoes is Paoul’s.  Beautifully made, and as seen in Vogue Bambini, a pair of these glittery pumps would transform any outfit into party wear.
Woodstock London
One of the beauties of being young is the complete freedom to wear whatever you want, whenever you want.  With no reason.  Sadly, long gone are the days where I could stroll into M&S wearing a glittery crown and a Batman onesie.  Our children still have that pleasure so lets turn a blind eye when they come downstairs wearing everything yellow that they, and you own.  Or when they decide that yes, popping to Starbucks is the perfect opportunity to debut their sequinned dressing gown.  Yawn to the jeans and t-shirt crew.  Woodstock fully embraces and celebrates children’s creativity.  Check them out for animal ears, moons and stars, pom poms and crowns.
Paul Smith Junior
The whole suave vibe is just too cute when it comes to boys party wear.  Paul Smith junior have nailed the boys smart casual look.  Staying true to their typically British style, the Paul Smith Junior collection is similar to the adult range with mini me signature stripes, playful prints and tailored suits, just like dad’s.  This navy ‘Marron’ bow tie features a dark red ‘spot’ jacquard and is made from a smooth twill cloth with an adjustable buckle and easy fastening clasp.
Faux fur
Well, well well.  What do we have here?  Only the best coat in all the lands.  Although it is tempting to stay true to the good old trusty Winter coats as December approaches so does the party season.  This faux fur beauty will not let those special party outfits down.  Buy here!
Kids shoes
We are all ears for the adventures little party girls will have in these loafers with a twist.  Minna says of her shoes ‘Life is too short to take style too seriously.’ Which we think is a great motto, especially when it comes to party wear.  With fabulously crazy designs for little girls and women matching with your daughter has never been a better look.  If you are a bit stuck for present buying in the festive period we would definitely recommend a pair of Minna’s shoes.  Worn by stars such as Taylor Swift, Cara Delevigne and Pixie Lott any young girl would be super smug to own a pair.  Thank us later. 🙂
