There is something so refreshing and exciting about new spring clothes – almost as refreshing as the spring air blowing through the windows after a long winter of being cooped up inside!

As you’re looking for fun new pieces to add to your children’s wardrobe for spring, think of one word: patterns.

We are in love with the whimsical, playful patterns by Swedish clothing company Polarn O. Pyret. If you haven’t discovered their patterns yet, you are in for a real treat!

Ditzy Florals

Sweet simple flower-heads tossed around and mixed in with dots and hearts make for a sweet, all-over pattern that pairs well with other patterns in your little girl’s wardrobe. Pair a ditzy floral top with striped pants and she is set for spring playtime!

We love the off-register (an old school hand-printing technique that adds a bit of character to an otherwise perfectly placed print) effect in the oh-so-Swedish Petal ‘n Bloom dress! It is printed onto a lightweight woven cotton and creates a sophisticated little shape that is so put together and still easy to play in.

The knit dresses and tunics, such as the Spring Floral Flounce Tunic and the Bright Bouquet Flounce Dress have little flower-heads, dots and hearts scattered about for a sweet and simple print that looks timeless.

Stripes & Polka Dots

Use stripes in your child’s wardrobe to pair with other prints. It adds to the energy of the overall look. Kids can pull off an all-over-pattern look with ease because it looks so youthful and fun! Try a striped top with novelty print leggings.

Another wardrobe staple for spring is the simple polka dot. Polarn O. Pyret keeps them large and spaced out so you get a definite impact of pattern even from afar! Pair a polka dot hoodie with floral leggings and striped socks!

Novelty Prints

Polarn O. Pyret really shines with their novelty prints! This spring, they have a selection of novelty prints from a sports inspired theme, to yummy treats, to tiny baby animals in their newborn collection! Have fun pairing novelty prints with dots and stripes galore! The Teddy Dunk Print bodysuit would be adorable with navy blue striped leggings!

We also love the outerwear by Polarn O. Pyret! Take a look at our feature, Clothes to Keep Your Baby Toasty!
