Children's Festival Fashion
Muddy boots and soggy sandwiches aside, festivals are a hot topic at Penneys HQ throughout summer! If you’re planning on bringing the little ones along for the ride, there’s more than just your own #ootd to think about. We’re talking mini-me festival wear, designed to keep your kiddies cool, dry and of course fashionable! Bring on the crochet, the neon, the prints, AND prices from €1.50- now that should be music to your ears!
So what’s the vibe? Are you heading for a chart-music dance-off? A bopping techno party? A hair-whipping rock fest?! Let’s face it, the kids are going to love it wherever you go - open spaces to run across, revised bedtimes, and fast food (kiddie heaven, right?). Our packing checklist for smaller festival-goers includes ear plugs (safety first!), a mac, a waterproof camera and plenty of apps to keep them occupied while you wait for the next act…oh, and not forgetting plenty of Primark/Penneys goodness…
Fringe vest €4, shorts €7
T-shirt €4, shorts from €6, bucket hats from €3
If you're not staying overnight in tents with your tiny tot, daytime festivals and fetes are here to fend off the Glastonbury #FOMO. Our looks for babies focus on taking care of your little one in style. Our T-shirts are soft and cosy, and come printed, embroidered and fringed, while our blue palm T-shirt with denim shorts has a surfer-boy feel. This teensy pair of bow-printed shorts is just too cute to resist, and at €7 you won’t have to! Someone turn the tunes up, we feel a happy dance coming on…
Vest €2, patterned shorts from €10
Chambray playsuit €10, beaded sandals €10
Are you feeling the summer vibes yet? 2-7 year olds aren’t left behind with printed vests and tops in tropical patterns or ombre, and shorts at €10! For the girls, we’re onto playsuits, but with a twist: this pale blue suit comes with cheery neon stitch detailing. It’s just asking to be paired with the cutest of accessories: think floral hair bandeaus and beaded friendship bracelets.
Blouse €9, shorts €10
T-shirt €6, shorts €12, cap €2
For older kids, it’s all about the details. We love this orange scallop-effect blouse, perfect for wearing with a crochet kaftan. And those floral embroidered shorts? They’ll look great over tights for chilly nights, or paired with long socks and Chelsea boots for exploring the festival grounds during the day. As for the boys, look out for street-style at its finest with slogan T-shirts. Finish off with a parka and high top trainers – sartorial symphony complete!
