Boys are a little trickier when it comes to dressing them ‘up’ I always think. There are more options, but that can make things harder I think. I’ve included a few suits (add trainers or Converse into the mix for a cooler look) and smart jackets/blazers in my edit, in case any of you are going somewhere particularly formal this Christmas; but generally I think a nice shirt (checks, stripes) and trousers/smarter jeans (loves this striped pair is always a pretty fail-safe option. I particularly like the collarless, ‘grandad’ style shirts ( I love this one) on boys. I also love boys in braces and boots/brogues (the Huckleberry Finn look as I call it). And I must confess, although I am not a fan of little boys in ties, I do think a bow tie always looks super-cute and cool.
And if all else fails, you can’t go wrong with a nice cashmere jumper and skinny jeans.
