Colors varied for children during Spring/Summer 2011, floral prints reminiscent of William Morris prints came in neutral browns, and nature inspired greens and blues as well as girly pinks.
Of course beach and seaside inspiration was around during the summer months, prints came from sea animals as well as nature found objects such as shells and pebbles.
Fun colors also came into play as summer activities played a factor. Bright oranges, blues, reds, yellows, and greens were found in both girls and boys apparel for 2011.
