When you’re shopping for your tween, you want to find clothes that are as fun and unique as she is. That’s why we’re so excited about our newest line – Desigual! Perfect for tween girls who love color, bold patterns and clothing that lets their individuality and personality shine through, this designer line comes straight from Spain to your closet.
Though Desigual girls clothing is sold in high-end boutiques shops around the world, from Paris to Berlin, the Desigual tween line can be hard to find here in the U.S. For you, that’s a sign of the brand’s unique style and high quality. And for your tween, these fresh fashions mean that she won’t show up at school wearing the same outfit as ten other girls on any given day, otherwise known as any tween’s worst fashion nightmare.
Desigual was founded in 1984 by up-and-coming designer Thomas Meyer. Though this Swiss native was only 20 years old, he already had a strong design aesthetic: A future where high fashion was not only accessible to all, but in which clothes actually helped generate positivity. The company’s original motto, “Desigual is not the same,” sums up Meyer’s goals of positivism, fun, innovation and tolerance.
Fast forward more than 25 years; today, Desigual is headquartered in the Spain’s style capital, the vibrant, cosmopolitan city of Barcelona, and operates high-end Desigual Brand stores in 72 countries, in cities like London, Hong Kong, Cairo, Moscow, Tokyo and Singapore. And every one of the Desigual stores reflects the company’s commitment to the freedom to imagine a newer, better world, full of light, color — and fun!
This fall, we’re proud to carry a selection of fresh new looks from the latest Desigual girls clothing collection. With colors, patterns, fabrics and silhouettes inspired by the world famous Cirque du Soleil, this line is sure to please even the most individualistic tween.
For casual dressing, nothing beats layered tops. Desigual’s fall line injects a splash of color and whimsy into your tween’s closet with cute, colorful tops and tees featuring psychedelic patterns, intergalactic snowflakes and even Cirque du Soleil-inspired patterns that pair perfectly with everything from jeans to skirts. And speaking of skirts, what better to top those hip leggings than a flirty, flippy floral skirt in galactic black?
For that special occasion, this Desigual dress brings all of the colors and emotions of the Cirque du Soleil to life. With its stunning jewel-toned florals set on a dramatic dark background, the stylish elastic bottom dress has a slightly stretchy hemline that creates a fascinating – and decidedly different — silhouette. For birthday parties or school events, this dress provides just the right amount of edgy, while still being soft and feminine.
When cold weather sets in, keep your tween toasty in high style with this Desigual coat. With a fun, funky galactic black pattern that contains a universe of colors, this puffy coat will set your tween apart on even the snowiest day. For an added layer of comfy warmth, Desigual’s pink and lavender sweater with it’s stylized flower print is sure to be your tween’s go-to cool weather piece.

How young were you when you started to become conscious with the things that you’re wearing? Was it when you were in pre-school when you were trying to impress your first crush? In middle school where puberty is starting? Or in high school where puberty is at its peak and your rebellious nature just shows up? People have different periods in their lives where they started to look for a great pair of shoes that would compliment or accentuate a certain dress or know that the color black doesn’t really go well with brown.
It is very important to start young. There is no age requirement or limit for that matter when it comes to fashion sense. Children should be conscious about how they would look as early as possible. Of course, this doesn’t mean that you really have to be very strict with the fashion sense of children and make them look like adults. Dressing children in silly and fun costumes will always be hilarious and cute. Playing in the rain and swimming in puddles are part of being a child. But if the time comes when a child already knows how colors compliment each other or how different types of dresses, shirts, pants and other types of clothing pair with one another, then it would be best if you encourage them to be aware of themselves. You have to admit, it’s pretty amazing to see a child looking good even during his or her playtime.
Playing and being a child doesn’t mean that you cannot make him or her aware of the things he or she is wearing. In this way, he will become keen-minded and self aware at a young age which is a very good quality to have.
With the technology that we have right now, one can find a lot of designer girls dresses and boys’ clothing on the internet. But you also have to be careful where to look. If you’re looking for fashionable kids clothing, then just visit www.littlefashionboutiques.com. They have a wide range of designer clothing for any child whether it’s a boy or a girl.
