Junior's favourite woodland inspired winter style finds.
The Wild Winter Woodland
Winter always seems to bring out a plethora of animal themes to the stores. This winter is no exception, so we decided to gather some of our favourite prints for you.
But we've chosen a very specific set of prints: woodland theme. No tigers, no penguins, no Buster the Boxer dogs, just gorgeous woodland creatures. We've even managed it without a single fox.
These are some of our favourite woodland finds. Head over to the Junior Instagram page and share your own #WoodlandEdit style with us.
The Highland Collection
This season, RockinBaby have launched a gorgeous new Highlands collection for girls, with deer, owl and squirrel tees (as well as a gorgeous tartan cape and shorts to complement the look). The gentle gather around the neck and cute appliqué detail really finish this top nicely. For the boys, their Great Outdoors collection includes this fabulous little Campfire Tee. Bring out the marshmallows.
Campfire Appliqué Tee and Deer Appliqué Tee, both £18, from RockinBaby.
The Full Woodland
Swedish label Mini Rodini clearly has an advantage when it comes to woodland theming. In a country where most of the land is forest, almost everyone has an affiliation with woods and nature. Not only has Mini Rodini embraced the woodland theme this season, they (literally) went wild with it. We have chosen four of their pieces for this feature, but if you love little fluffy animals, they've a forest full of inspiration for girls and boys online.
Bunny Collar Dress (in pink, or yellow), Ages 1-8, £38, minirodini.com.
Rabbit Sweatshirt (light blue/white, or navy/pink), Ages 1-12, £34, minirodini.com.
Fierce & Fun
If fluffy bunnies are just a bit too cuddly for your children, take the woodland theme off-track with super-cool designer style. Diesel went fully fierce with their wolf face sweatshirt - a great option for your feisty child. Meanwhile, Gardener & The Gang chose a cool deer print with statement front (there are matching sweatpants, if you're so inclined). Both tops would look great teemed with jeans, leggings, or a fluffy skirt, too.
Suqui Sweater, Ages 4-16, £60, Diesel.
Oh Deer Sweater, Ages 2-10, £49.95, by Gardner and The Gang, at Harrods.
It's not just sweaters and tops that are channelling the woodland theme this season. We love this Stella McCartney denim dress with running horses print - perfect for wearing with chunky tights for weekend walks. For a fun all-over print, layer this Powell Craft dress with darker separates for a cute winter look.
Powell Craft Woodland Dress, Ages 1-7, £25, from Childrensalon.
Nightsky Skippy Dress, Ages 2-14, £82, from Stella McCartney Kids.
The Statement Sweater
Sometimes only something bold will do - and these two tops both tick that box. Mini Rodini brings the luxury to the forest, with a velour sweatshirt and bunny combination in dark navy, or burgundy, for either boys or girls.
Armani Junior has created a statement with their layered deer tee. Made entirely from the word Armani, the two-tone long sleeved tee is both wild and urban - an unusual combination that works brilliantly.
Velour Rabbit, Ages 1-12, £38, by Mini Rodini.
Jersey Teeshirt, Ages 4-16, £65, by Armani Junior.
The Fun Prints
As always, if you know where to look you can find some really fun pieces in designer collections. This season Burberry wins the Most Fun Print Award for it's Englishman's Castle tee, which we've allowed to pass through the woodland filter. (Most castles come with a forest, or two, after all).
Our final piece from the omnipresent Mini Rodini sees their fun badger print run across sweatshirts, pants and tees. It's badger time in the wood and you can kit them out from head to toe, in pink, in grey, and in monochrome too. Your badger print options are (almost) endless!
Badger Sweatpants, Ages 1-12, £34, Mini Rodini.
An Englishman’s Home is his Castle Tee-shirt, Ages, 1-12, £50, Burberry at Harrods.
Wonderful Winter Dress
A dress so fabulous we had to give it its own space. We love the luxurious style of this dress, with little gathers at the hips, combined with the bold print. The framed owl is winking, with gold glitter detail (of course) and the straps on the hips accentuate the gathers, making this feel so much more than a simple dress.
Black Glitter Owl Print Dress, Ages 8-16, £69, Miguel Vieira at Childrensalon.
The Walking Woodland
We saved the best 'til last for this one. It's just a sweater, we know, but it really is the most wild woodland sweater we've ever seen. You can almost feel the atmosphere of a living forest in this print. You can smell the pine trees, hear the owls hooting and wolves howling just by looking at it. It's so perfect, it's almost art.
Woodland Printed Jumper, Ages 4-16, from £185, Armani Junior at Harrods.
