I've often found it much easier shopping for the teen that the little prince, namely because of the wide range of girls clothes available on the high street in comparison to boys. That being said times are changing and the way we shop is changing with the times. Spaces like Instagram are making it increasingly easier to find clothes in a style that appeals to you and online shopping means that you can be sitting slouched on the sofa with a cup of tea in your pyjamas (as I am now) and ordering the latest fashions from around the globe.
One of my resent finds for little man is a brand called 'Milk Ocean' who have just launched an etsy store featuring their first line of knitwear.
We were sent a super soft white hoodie made from 95% organic cotton a 5% elastane. The hoodie features water-based eco-friendly ink tattoo prints which gives it that little edge to make little man feel like 'the man'.
Since receiving the jumper little man has not wanted to take it off. He's only just started getting into fashion and will now tell you if his clothes look 'cool' or not, although he still does seek the approval of his big sister, this hoodie has definitely made it onto his cool list.
I too love the jumper, my only criticism would be that it comes up at just the right fit so if you're like me and like your children's clothes to have a bit of growing room I suggest going for the next size up. Milk Ocean currently stock sizes from 1-5 (although little man is wearing age 6). Helga, the store owner, has assured me they will in time be looking to expand the age range as the brand grows.
We haven't yet washed the hoodie so that will be our next test let's see how it does!
We were gifted the hoodie in exchange for this article, all opinions are my own unless otherwise stated.
