The Fashion Tips I Pass On To My Children

Ahead of Mother’s Day on Sunday, we’re celebrating what everyone already knows—Mum always knows best. How many times have you skipped out of the house, ignoring your mother’s advice to take a jacket (you know, in case you get cold), and later regret not listening? ­­­­­We’ve all been there.

Every mother has her own stylish advice, so we asked Tash Sefton, one half of They All Hate Us, the style rules she’s passing on to her two young boys.

Keep scrolling to read Sefton’s style advice.

1. Only wear stripes in one garment of any outfit.

"Too many times my boys come out dressed head to toe (shoes included) in something striped. Last time my son Jay did this, he told me he loved his look because he looked like a zebra. I love stripes, but my advice? One piece only, so you really make a statement."

2. Always have clean, brushed hair.

"My boys have really long hair, so I keep a brush at the front door, reminding them to have groomed hair before they leave the house. I think well-groomed hair is so important—it makes any outfit more elevated."

3. You should always add a perfume or cologne.

"Next to the brush at the front door is Mustela spray. It’s a French children’s beauty product which smells divine."

4. Know the colours that work on you.

"I dress my boys mainly in navy and white. It really suits them and their colouring."

5. Say no to fads.

"Classic is cooler. Especially for boys!"
