Rounding off our series of the high street’s best SS15 buys for boys, we edit the new Next boys collection.
Guilty confession: I hadn’t actually shopped in Next for my sons. Ever. For some reason I had assumed the range didn’t extend far beyond the requisite dinosaur/tractor/plane printed t-shirts, so typical of boys clothing on the highstreet. But, shame on me. A quick visit in store this week has converted me. Yes, there’s plenty of predictable ‘boy’ stuff, but also a brilliant mix of contemporary and classic shapes, colours and styles, with plenty of design detail at prices that won’t make you wince. It also feels like it’ll last longer than a season. I left with a huge bag full* and skipped away. (*note to self: shop online in future).
