Parents are always on the lookout for stylish pieces of clothing for their children to keep them looking their best and many of the latest trends in children’s clothing are styles which parents and children will love.
Whether that be clothing, footwear or accessories, there are plenty of different styles and trends to choose from. Believe it or not, childrenswear goes through as many trends and styles as the latest men and women's fashion collections, so here are 5 of the latest trends in children’s clothing that you should keep an eye out for.
With more and more people choosing not to limit their child’s fashion choices, gender-neutral clothing has taken a more conscious shift towards avoiding stereotypes in children’s clothing. Instead of the pinks and blues that we’re used to seeing, more colours and patterns are being used which can appeal to both girls and boys. Another reason why gender-neutral clothing is becoming increasingly more popular is that more new parents are choosing not to find out the gender of their baby at scans, meaning that gender-neutral clothing needs to be more readily available.
Whilst gold and silver tones in children’s clothing have always been popular, one of the most recent trends in children’s clothing has been focused around using more colours and sheens. Pink, mauve and green are popular choices, as well as gold buckles, silver sparkles and rose-gold accessories.

One way that they are achieving this is through the use of details, whether it be delicate waist bows and ruffles or eye-catching patterns and colour combinations. A lot of girls occasion wear features these details, as well as day-to-day clothing.
With increasing awareness around the world for the urgent need to save and help our planet, more and more childrenswear is using sustainable materials or nature-inspired prints.
