While you might be up on the trends for adult apparel and footwear, you might not know what’s in style for kids clothing this year.
So what should they buy them?
In this post, you’ll discover what’s in style in kids clothes for this year. From kids designers to trends for children, here are the kid’s fashion tips you need to know for 2019.
The Most Popular Kids Clothing Trends for 2019
Read on for the newest kids clothing trends. We present the styles and trends in vogue for spring, summer, and fall.
Flower Power for Girls
Girls look pretty in floral prints. Especially in the spring and summer. This year flowers bring lighter and faded color palettes. Pale pinks are in as well as soft yellows.
Designer Brands for Kids
Clothing Designers like DKNY kids have introduced more kids clothing to the market than ever before.
From dresses to tops, pants, accessories, and footwear, designer brands for kids are one of this year’s newest and exciting trends.
You might think that designer brands might be out of your price range. But some of the top designers offer children’s lines that fit many parent’s budgets. That’s made many stylish parents that don’t want to spend too much very happy.
Graphic prints in bold stripes and colors lined the runway this year. Whether it’s a playful pleated skirt, sweatpants, a light jacket or a casual T-shirt.
A graphic print can be an image like a pair of lips, geometrical shapes like circles or polka dots, lines or stripes.
Another trend in kids clothing is color blocking. Color blocking happens when you put two contrasting colors together for an outfit.
Grab a color chart or color wheel, pick a color and match the color with the hue that’s directly opposite of it on the color wheel. Just follow your eye to the other side and you’ve found your color blocking shade.
Metallics Are the Rage for Girls and Boys
Metallics show up everywhere these days. And they’re not just in gold, silver, and bronze anymore. Now metallic sheens can be seen with pinks, blues and even neutral colors like gray.
You’ll see them on sporty sneakers and shoelaces, glimmering sandals, purses, belt buckles, and backpacks. And they’re not just for girls. Boys wear metallics, too.
Looks like organic cotton hit the runway. While they’re not entirely new, the designers brought more to market this year.
Cotton feels soft, it’s comfortable and easy to move around in. Remember, since cotton tends to shrink, it’s a good idea to get the next largest size unless it’s prewashed.
With more people being environmentally conscious, designers make it a point to bring organic fabrics like cotton and wool, jute and kids clothing and accessories made from natural products and designs.
Animal Prints Roar This Season
Another aspect of nature we can’t ignore, the animal kingdom. And you’ll love to see your fashionista wearing animal prints. Dress your little tyke in leopard or zebra shorts or leggings. Teen girls love leopard print dresses and belts.
But let’s not forget about turtles who have lived on this earth for millions of years. Turtle prints are the most popular with girls dresses and t-shirts.
Other natural prints we see include foliage, leaves, and tree branches. Designers dig earth tones for autumn and as we mentioned earlier, flowers bloom everywhere.
Mellow in Yellow
Yellow brightens up the fashion industry in kids clothing in 2019. The trend pops up everywhere from swimwear to dresses and shorts.
We see big sunflowers on white dresses, pale yellow hues, and bright yellow, too. They’re popular for summer–great for the beach contrasting against the yellow
Kids Clothing Crosses Gender Stereotypes
The days of pink for girls and blue for boys are shifting. There seems to be a change going towards gender neutral or unisex fashion in kids clothing. This gives boys and girls more choices with their wardrobe.
This shift appears to come from a social consciousness among designers and parents to toss the blue for boys and pink and dainty for girls mentality this year.
Global Communities Influence Style
We call the world a melting pot it can’t be any more evident in kids clothing fashion. Clothing designers draw inspiration from tribal and folk traditions of the past. But we’re seeing this influence infused with a modern flair.
Some of the prints we see include Native American, Asian, Aztec and African styles and South Indian tribal traditions.
We see feathers, beadwork, embroidery, geometric art and more in children’s apparel. We’re also seeing a lot of fringe and lace.
Tie-dyed Kids Clothing
While tie-dyed clothing isn’t new, it’s retro look is back. Popular in the 1970s, in 2019 it could be almost as popular.
Tie-dyed designs appear on t-shirts and shorts for boys and girls. You also find them on girl’s dresses. You don’t have to be at a Grateful Dead concert and a Jerry Garcia fan to appreciate this returning trend.
Denim Takes a Bigger Leap
Denim and jean fabrics will never go out of style for kids and for adults. The material boasts a timeless, classic fabric that’s been around for decades.
This year is no exception. In fact, denim isn’t limited to just jeans and jackets, anymore. Designers have introduced denim shoes, denim earrings, and cute and comfy dresses made from denim for Spring fashion 2019.
