Fashion trends refers to the current trending styles of clothing at different times. Fashion is not only about clothes. It includes the kinds of shoes that are trending, type of jewelry, hair styles and many more. Sensitivity to fashion has of late been extending to kids. Every kid wants to look outstanding.
It’s so easy to realize that kids fashion is changing tremendously. Every day designers are very busy working on kids fashion looks. Long gone are the days when parents used to buy any kind of dresses, trousers, shoes, shirts and shorts for their kids. Nowadays kids have conceptual looks of the kind of outfit they want.
You are probably wondering why kids fashion trends are undergoing mega changes. Here are some causes of changes in kids fashion trends.
1. Influence from stars
Nowadays stars are the greatest influencers to kids fashion. Most kids are very updated on trending stars. Some kids have their favorite stars whom they like and would want to be like them one day. I’ve heard a lot of kids say, “I want to look like him”. This is what most kids want and that’s why you see many kids having outfits resembling those of stars such as musicians, socialites, models and others.
2. Rise of young designers
If you check closely, you will realize that most fashion houses have very young designers these days. By young I mean a slightly higher age from teenagers. In the past, we had aged designers who were very sensitive on ethics and the kind of outfits they design contrary to recent times. Young designers are very creative coming up with new fashion trends.
3. Cheap modesty costs
With the rise of many fashion design shops, fabric companies and other fashion related companies, cost of modern clothes has gone down. It is very easy to buy any kind of clothing nowadays as compared to past years when looking modern with classy wear was a very expensive art. Kids’ outfits have become so cheap, which causes a rise in classic outfits being easy to acquire.
4. Influence from parents
These are new times and people are having children when very young. Young means they are still sensitive to the kind of clothes, shoes and hairstyles they have. Most kids want to look like their parents and surprisingly also parents want their kids to look modest. Parents buy their kids clothes that resemble theirs.
5. Maturity feeling
This mostly applies to teenage girls. Teenage girls want to feel like mature ladies. Certain types of clothing are associated with maturity. Girls are wearing crop tops, short skirts and modern dresses. They feel mature at a very young age and so according to them, they have to look mature.
Fashion industry is very dynamic, the kind of outfits kids are having today could be very different from tomorrow. Some are very sensitive to fashion while others are not. For quite some time now fashion has been used as a parameter do group different classes of kids and their lifestyles. As parents, we just have to cope with the changes that come, and let our kids feel like the rest.
