A Trend I love for this Spring Season is Print-Mixing. I am seeing Print-Mixing being utilized as patchwork or by mixing prints together, like florals and classic shirting stripes, in unexpected and refreshing ways. This is a round-up of my favorite Spring Trends utilizing Print-Mixing for babiekins: scrunchies; flared dress; a paper doll; classic button-down; long skirt; romantic blouse; hoodie; belt bag and oversize collars. These Print-Mixed fashions are a little bohemian, a little refined, and full of youthful fun.
Tartan was everywhere this fall and the trend continues into the Holiday season. My favorite Holiday styles for myself & my babiekin are plaid dresses, shirts, trousers and bowties. In fact, I am on the search for the perfect plaid dress for me and tartan shirts for my boys; and, while searching for our Holiday Plaids, I came across so many adorable check dresses, bubbles, shirts, pants & accessories for babiekins that I decided to share a round-up of them with you!
I think this Holiday Season you can have a lot of fun with plaid: try to mix & match them; wear plaid head-to-toe; layer with a check coat; or try new color combinations.
Velvet is soft, plush and warm and is my favorite fabric for staying cozy this fall season. The velvet trend started last fall, continued into the early spring and has returned this fall in many of my favorite collections for babiekins. I have my eyes on a velvet jacket for myself and for my babiekin I love velvet sweatshirts, dresses, culottes, sneakers, home decor and accessories. Because velvet is so soft and cozy and looks lush in rich autumnal colors I think it will also become your babiekins favorite fabric for fall.
As we anxiously await the release of the eleventh print issue of Babiekins Magazine, here is a look at one of the editorials you will find inside the issue. This story has a minimalist vibe and was shot in the early morning hours in the Miami Design District. Featuring two tweens, the looks are sophisticated but soft.

“I believe in manicures. I believe in overdressing. I believe in primping at leisure and wearing lipstick. I believe in pink. I believe happy girls are the prettiest girls. I believe that tomorrow is another day, and… I believe in miracles.”- Audrey Hepburn
Aside from the gorgeous changes of color and delicious weather, autumn brings us trends that are so easy to love. Gold metallics, rich velvets are complimented with navy, rust, and ivory tones. Pair these looks with preppy loafers or a comfortable pair of converse. Fall colors and textures are so versatile!
