Kids as well as their parents are up to date with fashion trends nowadays. Gone are the days when kids’ clothing stores had many colourful options for the girls but limited rack space for the boys.
Little men’s or boy’s fashion is mainly inspired by men’s fashion and has replicas in miniature versions for almost everything. Head to toe, that is hats to shoes, are designed with a wide range of prints and fabrics.
However, the choice of fabric has to be comfortable and hypo-allergic since it is about boys in the age group of 2 to 14 years. The season also pays an important part.
For 2018, lighter and cooler fabrics like jute, cotton and linen are popular. For the winter, fabrics like fleece, wool and silk are essential to keep the body warm against the chill.
Thanks to the rising awareness about gender stereotyping, pinks and peaches aren’t limited to girls. Brighter hues with playful prints seem to be the trend for boys this year. Scarves, socks, bow-ties, pocket squares, belts, bags and shoes are the categories of accessories that have been made readily available from departmental to high-street fashion stores.
The trends for boys in 2018 are:
Prints: Sailing anchors, ice creams cones, thick strips, animals and imposed ties and badges
Colours: Rust oranges, greens and soft pastels
Styles: Suits, capris and worn out denims
Shoes: Short boots over the ankle, canvas loafers and beach flip-flops
Caps: Woven round hats
