Holli Yeoh | Avery Big Kid

Avery Big Kid

A favourite sweater with bold blocks of colour on the front, I’ve sized Avery up for an older crowd. Inset sleeves and full fashion shaping create a more sophisticated look and fit for school-aged children. The key design elements of corrugated ribbing and patterned sleeves made this one a best seller for the toddler set, and it looks just as good on the big kids. They’ll love the comfort, you’ll love the look.
