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.
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 online shops with the cutest kids’ accessories of all…
More than just a fashion statement or a timepiece, these watches (above) 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!
Want to get the kids a new weekender backpack for the day when you can finally get out of the house? Check out PriviKids’ range of 3D backpack shaped like your kid’s favourite animal, whether bear, bunny or even printed animal ones. If the babies are feeling left out, keep them engaged with an amusable range of plushies, soothers and bath toys. Too cute!
Oh Happy Fry
Being stuck indoors doesn’t mean you still can’t dress the little ones up at home! Take pretend play 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 stocks adorable animal socks, gorgeous floral headbands, a clear bear umbrella and other cute accessories to snazz up a dreary day indoors.
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 plush bag and a fluffy knit poncho to go with it. Or, opt for something more casual, like a pink bunny headband. For the boys, there’s no shortage of cool kids’ accessories, like a camo bumbag, a cars necktie or a cute little bow tie to make an everyday outfit more dapper. Totes adorbs!
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 channeling urban chic. Girls can rock the hats, scarves and jewellery, while boys look extra dapper all strapped together in suspenders, ties, belts and mirrored sunnies. Pop on a set of suspenders or a beanie on the tot and you’re ready to hit the streets (once we can go outside, that is).
It’s all in the name: Accessorize is a treasure trove of kids’ accessories. Kids won’t just be able to beat the heat with hats and sunnies in Singapore, but you can also grab the essential hat and gloves (fingerless with mitten caps!) to brave the wintery holidays in Europe… when we can travel again. Long-haired littlies can jazz up their hair with hair clips, hair bands and sparkly hair extensions. There are chokers and rings for edgier kids too, which are just as glitzy and fun.
Little Odd Forest
With 100% self-designed and handmade woodland-inspired creations, Little Odd Forest brings a little quirkiness to any outfit. Made for the young as well as the young at heart, any kid (or parent, for that fact) would be happily flaunting their sleepy cat backpack everywhere they go. Tired of carrying a backpack? Swap it out for a sloth wristlet or a drawstring hand-carry bucket purse and your kid’s good to go. You could also choose to add an adorable animal felt pin to a plain T-shirt to change things up in the wardrobe section. Plus, there’s even little woodland-themed booties for the bub, too.
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.
Cotton On Kids
For mums saving up for that weekend getaway (once we get to travel again), Cotton On Kids has a massive range of affordable water bottles, backpacks, hair clips, 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!
