Want to know how to keep your baby dressed to impress? Here are some of the upcoming trends you can expect to see in kid's clothes in 2022.
1. Baby’s got her blue jeans on...
Denim is one of the most popular and common clothing trends. It has been a staple in most people’s wardrobes for years. Almost every person in the world owns at least one pair of denim jeans.
Denim started as worker’s clothes, but because of its practicality, comfort, and versatility, it quickly became famous worldwide for people of all ages. Denim works perfectly with just about any ensemble, and almost any piece of clothing can look good in this material. It can be dressed up or dressed down depending on the occasion. Whether just a day at school or a more formal affair, denim can be used to make any outfit look great.
With options ranging from denim jeans and skirts to shirts and jackets, no child’s wardrobe is complete without at least one article of clothing made from this fantastic material.
There is a phenomenon called the logo trend or “logomania.” This refers to designers putting company logos on shirts and other articles of clothing. The phenomenon started among adults and young adults but has now found its way into children’s clothing designs. Any kind of logo, cartoon, or emoji counts. It may be a discreet embroidered logo on the cuff or chest or cover the front of the shirt, but keeping the brand visible is in.
3. It’s so soft!
Who would have thought that velvet would be entering the fashion scene for kid's clothing in 2022? Many thought that velvet went out with tracksuits in the 1970s and 80s. But, fashion has come a long way since then, and velvet has made its way back onto the scene. Now there are some pretty cute kid's clothes made out of that luxuriously soft material, including girls jumpers, dresses, and bodysuits. This fabric is especially soft to the touch and fun to rub little fingers on.
4. Almost didn’t see you there.
Gone are the days when camouflage was only used by hunters or military personnel. While camouflage may have been initially used for practical disguises, it has become something that can be cute and stylish.
It is now widely used by both men and women’s clothing, and children’s outfits are no exception. Camouflage is both fun and versatile. There are a variety of different camouflage patterns and colors that are used for shirts, pants, dresses, and more.
5. Hey there, tough guy.
Leather has often been used as a protective material for people such as bikers or horse riders. But, it has also been popular in the fashion industry as a fun way to add edginess to a look. Leather is still primarily used for outerwear, such as jackets, and will remain a popular article of clothing for kids in 2022. Think about how adorable your little boy or girl would be in a leather jacket.
6. Flower Power
Floral patterns are classic and will continue to be a big hit in 2022. This timeless trend appears in a variety of different ways in clothing designed for any gender and any occasion. Colorful flowers adorn onesies, dresses, and baby girl rompers. Floral lace patterns may be incorporated into hems, bonnets, and tights. What little boy doesn’t look cute dressed in a white shirt and floral patterned tie just like daddy? Floral patterns are versatile and the resulting clothing options almost endless.
7. We are family.
So often, kids want to be just like their hero dad or their bestie mom; this includes wanting to dress like them. Many children’s styles already closely resemble adult styles. Many designers took it one step further and created “mommy and me” or “daddy and me” outfits. They also created matching family outfits. This trend has been popular and will continue to be so. Whether it's for a holiday, vacation, special occasion, or just everyday wear, kids will be excited to match the favorite people in their lives.
Using this list as a guide, you can be sure to have the most trendy kid on the block next year.
