Spring has officially sprung which means that summer is just around the corner. All around the country trees have finally bloomed and flowers are gracing us with their presence. Clearly, it is time for your kids to shed a few layers. Less layers certainly makes dressing easier but it does mean that it may be time to freshen up their wardrobe. This season Appaman is here to help you bring your kids a little street cred with their high quality clothing and unmatched eye for children’s fashion.
Dressing young children can be tough. Between the struggle of actually getting them to put clothes on and trying to find clothes that are fashionable and appropriate for kids, yet still something they will be happy wearing – it can often be a battle. For the spring and summer season Appaman has released one of their most exciting and adorable collections yet. It is packed full of vibrant colors, fun prints and soft and comfortable fabrics that are made for looking good and playing hard.
A company with a name as cool as Appaman and with such exciting designs must have a pretty cool backstory. Appaman is the name of the childhood companion of founder and designer Harald Husum. As a young boy growing up in Norway, Husum traveled the fields of the native lands and shared many wonderful adventures and memories with Appaman, the corduroy ape. Now these adventures are the inspiration for the whimsical designs and youthful spirit of the company’s designs.
Their clothing collection is also inspired by the ever changing designs found on the streets of Brooklyn. Each season they release new styles and also update their tried and true favorites. One of Daily Mom’s favorite staples that they carry is their “how old are you” collection for both boys and girls.
Appaman’s boys collection for this spring is full of everything that a little boy needs to have a well rounded wardrobe. From exciting graphic tees and patterned shirts to a vast selection of shorts and pants, they will be covered for all their warm weather adventures. When the weather is acting out you need not worry. They even have you covered for rainy days.
There are two very important qualities that come along with picking clothing for kids. One of those is comfort and the other is versatility. Comfortable clothes ensure that kids can run, jump, play and explore without feeling restricted. After all, this is what childhood is made up of. Secondly, it is critical to save space in their wardrobe by choosing clothing that can go from camp days or school days straight to summer barbecues.
Appaman’s dip dye tee will become a quick staple! Its fabric has that perfect, soft, already worn in feel. You can easily pair this top with just about anything, but we are loving their denim shorts. Unlike a lot of denim for kids, these stretch denim shorts are soft and can stand up to all the movement of your little ones! If you want to add a little something extra to this outfit, you can top it off with one of their Harvey Shirts. This ultra light and soft double layer knit shirt is going to quickly become a go-to staple this season. It is perfect for buttoning up with a nice pair of pants or layering over a t-shirt for a cool yet casual look.
Appaman is well known for their graphic tees, and this spring collection certainly does not disappoint. With a wide selection of choices, you will find something for everyone. One of our personal favorites is the Gator Rock Tee in a vibrant orange color. Their t-shirts feature an already broken in feel and raw edges for added character. Pair it with their Brighton Shorts for the ultimate in comfort! These shorts are edgy, cool, and casual and are ready for any adventures that lay ahead this summer.
Don’t get caught out in the rain! Be sure to pack the Expedition Windbreaker for all of your adventures. Your little ones will stay toasty and dry in this full zip raincoat. The four front pockets ensure room for anything that they may need to stash away for safe keeping.
This season Appaman’s collection for girls is packed full of beautiful colors with a wide array of delicate pastels. Their Sydney Tank Dress is simple to throw on for everyday wear but could also be easily dressed up. The dress flows perfectly and you could simply throw on a jacket or a quick sweater if the weather is a bit chilly. The watercolor print is fun with a bit of edge!
There is almost nothing more adorable than little girls in overalls! They scream classic style and when you add a hint of mint green and a chalky wash you have the beginnings of the ultimate outfit. These Pixley Denim Overalls are made with enough stretch for running, jumping, and playing and enough style to last all summer long. Pair them with the Unicorn Circle Tee and your little girl is sure to love it. Adorned with sparkly unicorns these shirts are cut specifically for girls and feature that soft, already worn in feel.
This spring and summer season, whether you are looking for the perfect casual summer outfit or something more fitting of a special occasion, you can rest assured that Appaman has got you covered!
