Children’s fashion trends: What parents consider important

Individuality and sustainability have been playing an increasingly prominent role in the fashion industry for some time now. This also goes for maternity, baby and children’s fashion. Increasing numbers of parents are placing special importance on resource-friendly production and non-toxic textiles. At the same time, the growing fashion consciousness is becoming a determining factor in purchasing decisions. Clothing is a way of expressing one’s personality – it should follow trends, but also be individual or even diverse – and not bound by categories such as gender or origin. Parents not only live these values themselves, but also pass them on to their children and make purchasing decisions accordingly.

How baby, children’s and maternity fashion is changing

Manufacturers are responding to the changing needs of the market with high quality standards and focusing more on sustainability – starting with renewable raw materials to shorter delivery routes. However, certified organic cotton and similar materials not only satisfy the desire of many parents for fair and natural clothing. Absence of harmful substances is a major purchasing factor – both in baby fashion and maternity wear.

The new quality standards can also be seen in the designs. Even in the last trimester of pregnancy, more and more women want to look stylish and show off their belly with pride. This can be seen in the shift towards trendier and more form-fitting maternity fashion.

Sense of style is expressed through the choice of clothes for babies and children. Whether colours, patterns or cuts – clothing for the little ones should be fun and evoke emotions. Young, social media savvy parents enjoy sharing beautiful moments with their little ones on their social networks and also make fashion statements – from a partner look with trendy patterns to unisex outfits in gender-neutral colours and designs.
