Girls love dresses and cool skirts

Dresses and skirts turn girls into little princesses – whether in a casual style for everyday wear or in an elegant style for special occasions. Girls’ dresses can be combined with a wide range of different items and can create lots of different styles. The lightweight jersey dress is comfortable and ideal for everyday wear, while knit dresses create slightly more elegant outfits. Maxi dress can be paired with cute hairbands to create great tribal looks and mini dresses can be combined with tights for smart, everyday styles. Frills, flounces, pleats and gathered sections add a swirling touch to the girly design. The patterns are just as varied as the details, from wide stripes to fine polka dots through to funny printed motifs – you can find them all in our online shop. Small accessories create a subtle difference between the looks. One thing is clear this season – cheery, casual and vibrant styles are in.

The dress makes the girl: The perfect dress for every occasion

Dresses made of stretchy cotton-jersey are incredibly comfortable. Jersey dresses are often decorated with cute comic prints or pretty floral patterns, which brings a touch of colour into everyday life, whether it’s in nursery, in school or on the playground. A denim skirt is incredibly robust and creates playful street styles when paired with a casual hoodie. A softly draped viscose dress, a fine knit dress or a swirling tulle skirt are popular options for formal occasions. If the dress is very short then it should always be combined with trousers or tights. Cardigans and boleros round off this charming look perfectly. Here are some style tips for certain occasions: ● Family celebrations: Pair a frilly viscose dress with a fine knit jacket and ballerinas for an elegant outfit. Accessories such as a hairband or a glittery belt round off the cute look. ● Summer festival: A swirling floral dress and strappy sandals are perfect for summer looks. Colourful hairbands, clasps or a fabric belt create further accents. ● Free time: A jersey skirt with a hooded jumper and tights or a jersey dress over a long sleeve shirt are ideal outfits for everyday wear. Lightweight cloth shoes or trainers go brilliantly with this look. The possible combinations are endless, but the little ones know best when it comes to what they want to wear. The most important thing is that everything is comfortable. That’s why girls’ dresses and skirts should be comfy and loose and should not be too short.

A question of feel: Which materials are best?

You can’t go wrong with girls’ dresses make of pure cotton. The material is soft and allows the skin to breathe. If the dress or skirt has more of a slim-fitting design then it is a good idea for the material to contain a percentage of stretch. The elastane stretches and makes the garment even more comfortable. The lightly shimmering viscose has an elegant look and softly skims the body, which makes it even more comfortable. It is also perfect for formal outfits, just like the tulle skirt. Tulle is a slightly sheer material that is often used for flounces skirts, as it adds volume to the design. Conclusion: This season is all about wide cuts, relaxed jersey and cotton fabrics and cheery designs. For formal occasions, darker colours and more subtle prints are a good choice. Comfort and style go hand in hand when it comes to the girls’ dresses and skirts in our TOM TAILOR product range.
