As with adult fashions, kids fashion also seems to have a lot of different trends, however fashion trends for kids are very different to fashion trends for adults, because these trends need to appeal to two different sets of people: the children who wear the clothes and the adults who pay for them! Fashion for children does not usually imitate the fashion trends which are popular for adults, because children and adults have very different needs. Here is a rundown of some of the latest fashion trends for kids which you should be buying for your children this season.
Organic/Ethical Kids Clothing
One of the latest celebrity fashion trends is to advocate ethical, organic clothing for children. Organic cotton is one of the most common ethical choices. Organic cotton is made from cotton which has been grown without the use of pesticides or genetically modified crops. Some experts say that as well as being great for the wildlife in the surrounding area, organic cotton is also softer and kinder to your child’s skin. If your child has very delicate skin, it may be worth buying one piece of organic clothing, just to see whether it will make a difference. If it does, you can start buying a lot more organic produce.
Children absolutely love brightly colored clothing, especially if it has a picture of their favorite cartoon character on it. Although the cartoon characters may change, the cartoon style will always remain popular with children, because it is something which they can identify with. Brightly colored clothing is also great for parents, because it can help them to keep an eye on their children.
Although the popularity of fur-lined (Ugg-style) boots waxes and wanes in the world of adult fashion, they remain popular amongst girls who are under 12. This is because they are practical and look good. Kids can run around in these boots, and play lots of kid’s games, whilst they also help to keep their feet warm during the winter months. For a cheaper and more ethical choice, choose boots which are lined with fake fur or fake sheepskin.
This winter, knitwear is a popular choice for kids, because it is so warm, and it is available in lots of different style. Most parents choose to layer a knit jumper over another t-shirt, to help to keep their kids warm enough. However, some children will find knitwear to be irritating if they wear it in direct contact with their skin.
