How to Dress Your Child - 8 Trends in Children's Fashion

Let’s take a look at some of the top trends today in the world of children's fashion. Want to find out what to dress your little ones in? Read on as we focus on the practical, the famous and the downright strange. 

Bodysuits that ‘Pop’

And t-shirts, leggings, and sleep suits that make a statement. It’s all very well kitting out your new born in neutral designs and pastel colours, and there’s definitely a time and a place for it, but if you want to stand out striking designs and bold colours are the in thing.

Iconic Images

Iconic and cultural images are finding their way onto all manner of children’s clothing. It’s now very common to find prints that feature city skylines, regional icons such as London buses, and cultural images like American sport scenes (think motor racing, baseball etc) printed across childrenswear.

Fur Coats?

We said we’d look at some strange trends, we also said we’d look at the famous, and here they are combined. We give you Alia Wang, the 4 year old niece of famous designer Alexander Wang. Fur coats won’t be for every 4 year old, but when your uncle is a fashion icon you can probably get away with it. 

‘Look at Me’ Footwear

If you struggle to get your kids into practical footwear like wellington boots and sensible walking shoes this trend might help. Boring footwear no longer needs to be an option, parents are moving beyond Crocs to give their kids shoes that are designed to grab attention. They might be designed as an animal, feature typography or made to match an outfit. Either way they are sure to catch the eye and be easier to tease your little monsters feet into.

Polka Dots

Polka dots are back (did they ever really go away?) and we’re pleased to hear it. More suited to girls than boys, polka dots can spice up any item of clothing. As seen here featured on a snazzy pair of socks.

Cropped Leggings

We all know leggings are a great way to keep a little ladies legs warm and safe. Now with cropped leggings you can avoid any wet or worn ends. They’re also great under skirts and dresses keeping a formal look and your little ones dignity should a gust of wind leave her like Marilyn Monroe!  


The tutu is a great way to create a stylish and distinctive look. Drawing on the playful nature of dressing up and combining it with full edged skirts to deliver a smart alternative to the standard skirt. Pair with cropped leggings to really be on trend.


Much like the iconic image trend, typography is also a big craze sweeping across childrenswear. From capital cities to inspirational quotes, to sports teams and exclamations of joy. Just about any word or phrase can be found stylishly printed on childrenswear these days.
