Kid’s Casual Clothing

Children’s fashion stores

Many high street clothing shops for adults also have children’s ranges as well, for example Next, Primark, Fat Face and H&M. Department stores like BHS, Debenhams and Littlewoods also do this.
However, there are a few that cater just for children. Mothercare does include maternity women's casual clothing also, but they stock clothes from premature baby sizes to 8 years old, for both boys and girls. Mama’s and Papa’s is very similar but is mainly marketed towards babies and toddlers under 3 years. Adams is another specialist children’s fashion retailer and is aimed at those ages 0-10. Pumpkin Patch goes from new born, to 11 years.

Babies clothing

Playsuits are a common form of clothing for babies, as they are a one piece garment made from soft materials, so are easy to put on and don’t get caught on things. They may also be referred to as blanket sleepers.
Booties are placed on the feet to keep them warm and protect from anything on the floor. They look a bit like boot style slippers but are made from wool and have a ribbon tied across the front.

Toddlers clothing

Toddlers can also wear playsuits, but joggers, t-shirts, knitwear and dungarees are all common casual clothing for young infants. Dresses and skirts for girls are also popular. T-shirts are often brightly coloured, and have patterns such as polka dots, stripes, or prints of animals, flowers for girls, or cars, planes, and footballs for boys.

Boys also tend to wear jeans, trousers or shorts. Shirts and bucket hats can be suitable for them and often come in blues, greens and browns. Whereas pinks, purples, whites and yellows are more associated with being girly colours.
Pyjamas and slippers are good nightwear for children and keep them warm. Dressing gowns are also ideal to lounge around in, in the evenings just before going to bed.

Trainers are perfect for children to wear when they are out and about, for example shopping or playing with their friends. They often come with a Velcro strap as opposed to laces, so they are able to fasten their shoes themselves without the help of an adult. However, they can also have buckles instead.

Girls can wear sandals, flats or boots. Dolly shoes are quite popular, but its best advised staying away from high heels as these will not only damage your child’s feet if they find it hard to walk in, but can encourage them to grow up too fast. Girls footwear usually comes in shades of pink, purple, silver, white or black, maybe with glitter, sequins or other bright patterns and designs such as flowers, animals or things associated with nature like the sun, moon or stars.
Boys’ shoes often come in brown, blue and blacks, and have a buckle or a Velcro strap. They can wear sandals, trainers, or army style boots too.
