My guest blogger today is Sarah, writing for the kid’s fashion website, BambiniFashion.com. As a boy mom, one thing I’m not up on is kid’s fashion. Today my son wore a pair of size 18 mo. old pants that looked like capris and a shirt with a snowboarding ape. He picked these things out himself so I just went with it. When Sarah pitched the article, I thought it might be interesting to see what the fashionable kids are wearing! Read on to find out yourself –
5 Kids Fashion Trends You Should Know About
Dressing your kids is easy when they’re little. You can dress them in any cute outfit you choose. But as they get older and start developing their own opinion and fashion tastes, you may find that these tastes may not be the same as yours. But don’t be too hard on your kids. Rather, allow them to reasonably explore their creativity when it comes to fashion.
Today, there are so many kids’ fashion trends, and keeping up with some of them can be a daunting task. However, here are some popular trends you need to know about.
There is so much to love about denim. One of the greatest advantages about it is that denim can be worn everywhere with just about anything. If there is a single area you need to be on the lookout for besides their shoes, it’s their jeans. The good thing about denim, besides being attractive, is that it’s comfortable, easy to wash, and quite trendy.
Prints and Patterns
In the kids’ fashion industry, geometric motifs are quite new. Diamonds, zigzags, circles, and triangles all mesh together to create a multi-colored design. These kinds of motifs feature greatly on kid’s latest dresses, shirts, blouses, and T-shirts. Even kids’ slip-on and sneakers are emblazoned using these bold designs. Patterned outfits are therefore ideal for your kids’ trendy look, especially during the summer vacation.
Young kids are now stepping back in time with a toned-down style of the glam rock designs of the seventies and eighties. Studs, black faux leather, and an extra glitter are an amazing interpretation of such a retro-style when put on by your “little dolls.” For kids who are active, leggings are super cool and animal prints make them stand out with this look. Since glam rock has never been skewed towards any specific gender, it is an excellent look for little boys and girls. Some pair of shades would most likely complete this look. You can skip the afro or big hairstyles, but the latest trend of platform shoes for kids is quite amazing.
One fashion trend that is quite popular with kids is the faux style. Not only will a little fur clothing add some excitement to a wardrobe of cooler weather, but it can also be worn in different ways. If your kid is furry shy, you can try the faux-fur vest on their mini to add some playfulness to their look.
Celebrate the summer and the sunny days with an array of colorful outfits for your boys and girls. The girls are going for various pastel colors including powder pinks, lemon yellows, and pale blue garments. On the other hand, boys are sporting in bright colors and prints of polos and T-shirts just to be in line with the current fashion trends.
Today, even kids have to worry about what they wear and as a parent, it is important to let your child have the confidence they need by ensuring they put on something that is not only appealing to you, but to them as well. You can pick from one or more of the trendy outfits above to guarantee your kids are always in style!
