The mince pies have all been scoffed, the chocolate selection boxes now only house the empty wrappers and the time has come for the miserable and solemn climb into the loft with the decorations. To get you and your little ones out of the Christmas comedown funk, we’re giving you a taste of things to come.
If you caught our last feature on kids’ athleisure, you’ll know it’s THE trend of the moment and one that’s going to be hanging around like an Olympic gymnast! The days are about to get longer and the evenings lighter, we can already picture the kids out of hibernation, off the sofa and outdoors having fun with their playground squad - we can hardly wait ourselves! We’re looking forward to warmer, brighter and bolder times and are ready to kit the kids out with the very best of Athleisure accessories.
Whether it’s a flat peak cap or a mini-me handbag to finish off the outfit, kids are little magpies for a good add-on accessory (we wonder where they get that from?!) One that’s totally kid-friendly and has had a huge reinvention in the world of cool, is the trainer. No longer footwear restricted to the school run and sports days, classic kicks now have serious street-cred and instantly add that laidback workout vibe to everyday wear. Putting their best foot forward but making sure they’re still comfortable, relaxed and can run carefree - just as kids should!
The littlest players in the game will be handing out gold medals to mum and dad with this update to their gym kit and school bag. A brand new, cool and trendy rucksack is guaranteed to stay firmly on their back which means you’ll no longer be left carrying all of the bags home – bonus, right?
Accessories are an easy and affordable way to update their wardrobe and if you’re anything like us, January is all about the recovery of our purses, making this the perfect post-Christmas mini spend. Active accessories start at just €1.50 and clothing from €6; it doesn’t have to pack a punch to get the kids running fresh into the new year!
