SuperTrash Girls is one of the biggest names on Holland’s high street fashion scene, with a massive following in the US and Europe since launching in 2004. Their collection includes fun and quirky pieces for girls aged 4 to 16 years. With their fun designs, it’s easy to mix and match pieces to suit the weather or the occasion.
Here are some tips on how to style your girl’s clothes:
Use a color wheel to compliment colors
When you’re talking about colors, “complementary” actually means “opposite.” Black and white, for instance, are complementary colors. That’s why they look so great together. Every color has a complementary color. It’s just whatever is on the opposite side of the color wheel. Once you have a base color to work with, choose some colors that match with it. Two is a good number to shoot for. You can either choose colors that you believe match, choose from a color palette in a magazine, or use a tool like a color wheel. For best results, use about 75 percent of one color and 25 percent of the other. Donning two hues in equal proportion might make it look like a sports uniform.
Solid colors are your friend
When mixing and matching, it’s important to have a “base” of solids—such as gray, black, khaki or denim “bottoms” that can coordinate with various shirts with patterns, style or adornments. You don’t have to go monochrome, through! If your child is wearing solid pants/shorts, let him/her express his/her style with a fun shirt. Pair a solid shirt with patterned or adorned “bottoms.”
Don’t rely on set clothing
Clothing that is purchased as a set and meant to go together is tough to mix and match, so when you are doing your back-to-school shopping, take that into consideration. If neither part of the “set” can be worn with another bottom or top, it might not get as much use as you intended.
Accessorize for a new look
There is nothing like a little accessorizing to make an outfit look entirely different. A fun necklace, a neat pin, or a cute hat could be just the thing to make a mix and match outfit look new again!
Look for collection pieces
Many clothing lines—particularly for young kids—are designed to mix and match with other items in the collection. Be selective when shopping and stick with a mix and match line so any way your child combines an outfit, it’ll work!
Unleash your child’s creativity
Let your children express their individuality when it comes to their personal style. Just because you may think something doesn’t match, doesn’t mean your child feels the same way. Your child could just be on the cutting edge of a new mix-and-match trend. Mixing and matching should be fun, so don’t take it too seriously—and your kids won’t either! Giving them choices on what to wear teaches them responsibility and it puts them in charge of their style. They’ll love picking out the perfect outfit just as much as you do.
A designer clothing brand like SuperTrash Girls offers a range of clothing options that you can choose from to create ideal mix-and-match outfits.
