Jazzing things up is always a good idea, whether you're small or tall. But for now, we're all about the little people. Here's where to find sunglasses, hats, bags and jewellery made just for kids in Singapore.
We all know what a difference the perfect bag or pair of shoes can make to an outfit, and that a good hat isn’t just for keeping the Singapore sun off our shoulders. But for kids (that’s right, not ‘boys’ or ‘girls’… just kids) who love playing dress-up, accessories are a must. And generally, the more colours there are, the better. Whether it’s to pull together the perfect pirate-fairy-witch-princess costume, to add a splash of colour to an otherwise ordinary day during the lockdown or just because, kids’ accessories are adorable and the best ones last a lifetime. Here’s our pick of the shops in Singapore where you can buy the cutest kids’ accessories of all…
Where to buy kids accessories in Singapore
1. June and January
If you are looking for candy stripes and checks for your kids, June and January is the place you should be hitting up for that candi-licious look. We are talking about the cutest bows, bonnets (with pompoms) and hairbands that will add a classic finishing touch to your kiddo’s outfit. While you are at it, why not drop in a few adorable hair clips into your shopping cart? And maybe a cap too to please our wee dapper boys.
If you have travel plans for a frosty vacation, NEXT has some of the cutest accessories to complete that cosy wintery look. We love the variety of hats on offer, from knitted teddy trapper hats to dino and unicorn beanies. There are also matchy sets available, including hats, scarf and gloves. NEXT is indeed a one-stop shop for all your frosty needs, and your littlies are sure to be snug as a bug in a rug. Now those poms on top amp up the cuteness score a hundredfold!
3. Flik Flak
More than just a fashion statement or a timepiece, these watches help kids learn how to tell the time through an app featuring the playful pair of siblings, Flik and Flak. We can personally attest to loving these growing up, and we never took ’em off because they were so fun to wear! These clock hands love time almost as much as they love racing around the clock. Not only do these watches have the craziest designs, but the numbers are also printed larger for easier identification, and they can withstand a little rough and tumble. These funky kids’ accessories even survive a trip through the wash!
4. Marks & Spencer
Popular with parents and kids around the globe, Marks & Spencer is a household staple, and you won’t want to miss the kids’ section either. We’re talking beanies, water repellent bags, headbands, and so much more for your infants to toddlers. The kids will go wild for the backpack options here, from sequin, Disney princess and Avengers to Peppa Pig and leopard print too. The littlies are sure gonna look too cool for school!
5. Bambini Fashion
If your kiddos live in a world of princesses, stock up on the sweet wink tiaras at Bambini Fashion for a glam-up. This store has a great range of cute hair accessories like colourful headbands, scrunchies and hair clips for girls or boys, as well as a cute sock range too. Colourful and non-slip? Double yes!
6. Zalora Kids
Looking for a school essentials wardrobe upgrade for the kiddos? Zalora‘s kids section gives you endless options like backpacks, pencil cases, wallets and watches! For other accessories for when they’re getting ready to go out and about, don them with cute hats, sunnies, hair clips and even masks to spruce up their outdoor look!
7. Oh Happy Fry
Take your playdates up a notch with some fun and fabulous kids’ accessories. Add a denim bucket hat to a little cute number, or some pretty flower hair clips to really make a statement. Plus, the folks at Oh Happy Fry also stock cute animal socks, gorgeous floral headbands, a clear bear umbrella and other cute accessories to snazz up any day out or dreary day indoors.
8. Seed Heritage
We love Seed Heritage for how it screams summer – but sun hats and visors aren’t all they do. Kit your little seedling out with the most adorable unicorn socks and a striped poncho. Or, opt for something more casual, like a pink bunny headband. For the boys, there’s no shortage of cool kids’ accessories, like an initial backpack and animal bucket hat.
We know and love it for us mums, but don’t forget Mango Kids! While the adult line is sleek and stylish, the kids’ line is bright and flamboyant while still remaining fashionable and channelling urban chic. Girls can rock the hats, scarves and jewellery, while boys look extra dapper all strapped together in blazers, belts and clear frame sunnies. Pop on a blazer or a beanie on the tot, and you’re ready to hit the streets!
If you say you can’t accessorise at school, you’re not trying hard enough. Even a lanyard for a bus pass or wallet becomes a statement piece. Smiggle’s the shop to hit when you’re hunting for those back-to-school goodies. Kids suffering from back-to-school blues will cheer right up with a rainbow of stationery, keychains and water bottle.
11. Cotton On Kids
For mums saving up for that weekend getaway, Cotton On Kids has a massive range of affordable water bottles, backpacks, scrunchies, sunglasses, flip flops and other kids’ accessories. Meaning as well as some new goodies, you’ll still have leftover dosh for some new threads. Sorted.
H&M has it nailed when it comes to affordable kids’ accessories. They’ve got the cool-functional blend just right too, with sweet jewellery, hair accessories, hats, gloves, umbrellas, and so much more. Plus, you know you can’t go wrong when they already have plenty of clothing options that we love. All the kids have to do is pick out which colour they like best!
So go on. Glam up the kids with this list of accessories stores in Singapore!
