❉How to Look at Kidswear
Clothing is an essential part of a person’s life. Its fundamental purpose is to cover and protect the body. However, in the course of the development of mankind, our needs have also evolved. Advances in technology, lifestyles, and philosophies have indeed brought about changes in how we create and appreciate clothes. From bare leather and raw linen tied together to cover parts of the body, we now have classifications such as business attire, kidswear, formal, etc. that are tailored to follow shapes and forms of fabrics that not only cover the body but also display styles.
For many people, choosing what to wear is an important expression of their personality, and their tastes and preferences start developing when they are young. The parent’s choice of apparel for the little ones is usually based on their child’s age and budget. However, children need clothes that are safe and comfortable no matter the season. Choosing clothes for a child can be tricky, so taking a close look at the different tips offered can help you pick out suitable outfits for your child. In many places around the world, kids wear summer and winter clothing respectively – so they need different sets of clothing. Usually, younger children may only need a few sets of clothing, while older children may require more.
Little children are already cute and their little clothes make them look more adorable. It is important to know that children’s clothes are a little different than adults’ clothes. There are great differences in size. Also, it is crucial to remember that children’s skin is very soft and delicate. Harsh materials used in kidswear will be uncomfortable to wear, and they will end up upset and crying. Thanks to advances in technology and techniques in apparel manufacturing, many kidswear manufacturers use selected blends and soft cotton to ensure that they are soft and loose, and children will not feel uncomfortable.
Kids need clothes to stay safe and comfortable no matter the climate. They also need appropriate attire for school, sports, festivals, and other occasions. Parents should let their kids pick out some basic children’s apparel that the child can wear anytime. For example, young children may want to have a jacket for cold weather or a pair of warm pats for chilly temperatures. Shoes must also be given great consideration. Your child may also want some sneakers for outdoor activities such as sports or running errands.
Good clothing can enhance the look and appeal of children, hence contributing to how others view them as individuals. Yes, this is the reality today for people including the very young ones.
Kids should wear items that complement each other- for example, an all-black outfit with a stylish hat and gloves matching your theme for the day (e.g., Christmas). Your child also needs basic attire for activities at home such as eating or sleeping. Your child may enjoy wearing birthday party gear or Halloween costumes whenever you throw a party or event.
Parents should also allow their kids to pick out some basic clothing pieces and items that the child can feel comfortable wearing anytime. Things like warm winter gear, everyday clothes, shoes, and casual accessories can be selected together with the kids. For the very young kids, however, it really is the parents who also have complete freedom over clothing when taking their young ones out in public. What would be great is, whenever possible and practical, both the child and the parents will choose what kidswear to purchase when out shopping.
Gone are the days when all kids wore whatever their parents chose for them. Many kids, especially older ones these days always want to dress stylishly because they are already establishing their identities and building self-confidence. They want to wear clothes of their choice and have clothes they like.
There is a wide range of kidswear, including children’s pajamas, children’s ready-to-wear, children’s rompers, children’s tops, children’s knitwear, children’s winter clothing, children’s summer clothing, organic clothing, etc. Parents need to encourage creative choices, and kids are encouraged to choose, whenever possible and reasonable, a style they prefer because they want to catch the interest and even respect of their peers. We all know “concern” starts building up during the preteen and teenage years.
Of course, not all parents can afford kidswear selected from the designer’s children’s collection. What is important is that they are aware of the clothing choices out there and that even inexpensive pieces can be attractive and stylish. That is why children should be allowed to choose the colors and styles they like. Help them understand that they do not need to follow what others tell them to wear, as bold colors and attractive designs even in kidswear help express their personality and style. They can have the confidence to stand out from the crowd when they feel like it, and attract the attention of people of all ages. Childhood is a learning period in life when kids should absorb the good things in life; cultivate good taste in all things, including kidswear. Children these days are indeed very sensitive to dress and appearance. There are also a good number of parents who prepare and are willing to invest in helping to build their children’s confidence and creativity through kidswear.
Studying Kidswear Choices
When choosing clothes for your child, the main rule is that safety and comfort come first. When shopping, it’s also important to do it in an age-appropriate manner, as different needs are associated with each developmental stage of a child. Since babies and young children are often the main focus, we’ve highlighted some helpful tips related to these specific age groups, as well as some general considerations.
When buying children’s clothing, the child’s own choice is valuable, because they wear it and should be happy to have them. Choosing what they wear themselves will give them confidence and encourage their emotional and social growth. Since clothing is such an important part of the personality, let children choose their kidswear whenever possible and let them learn by observing their surroundings.
Buying clothes for your child is an investment, so it’s a good idea to consider several factors when shopping for kidswear. You want cute and stylish kidswear, but you also want them to last for years. Maybe even long enough that you can pass them on to your other kids or your sister’s kids.
Safety has always been a top priority, and for children, the clothes they wear can be a big compromise if not taken into consideration. To this end, apparel brands and government agencies implement strict safety measures to ensure that clothing made and sold for children is free of such ingredients. The following article briefly describes the safety measures that children’s clothing must meet in order to be worn safely and securely.
Customers pay great attention to details in kidswear when purchasing. Safety and comfort are top priorities in children’s clothing. Fabrics and designs must focus on comfort in children’s clothing. Because children’s skin is sensitive, the materials and dyes used should not react to certain substances that impair wearing comfort. Furthermore, the movement of children should not be hindered and restricted too much.
For children’s clothing, safety in the materials is important. There may be decorations and accessories in kidswear, such as hooks, buttons, stones, flowers, bows, etc., which can be choking hazards and cause suffocation. Perhaps completely avoiding such apparel may be too much, so the best thing to do is to inspect and make sure that the quality of the materials and how they are put together are top-notch.
Trends in Kidswear
Children’s clothing has become a popular item for adults as well. Kidswear is supposed to be designed to be functional, cute, and affordable. Manufacturers have learned that young consumers have distinct needs and tastes when designing children’s clothing. The designs change with age and culture. That is why it is crucial to understand the different trends in children’s apparel.
Traditional children’s wear includes knobby knits, plaids, cotton, linens, and suede. Knobs and cuffs are the most common styles for boys’ clothing and princess dresses for girls. Clothing options also vary depending on geographic region. In addition, these days middle-class and urban parents have the option of purchasing branded or quality generic kids’ apparel online. Brands like H&M offer both branded and quality generic children’s apparel for infants to teens. Branded apparel ranges from affordable to exclusive designer options. Quality generic kids’ clothing is also available online at low prices.
Spending habits have changed society’s buying habits for children’s clothing. It has been observed recently that more divorced women and grandmothers now regularly shop for their kids. They also shop at US discount retailers like BJ’s Wholesale where they can find name-brand kidswear at lower prices.
Manufacturers have also learned that young consumers are sometimes willing to compromise quality for price when shopping for children’s apparel. This is why many kids’ clothes are available in only one or two colors. Kidswear also tends to come in small sizes with short manufacturer guarantees so that retailers can profit by selling discounted merchandise to multiple consumers.
Children grow quickly and develop unique fashion tastes based on geographic region, age group, and parental influence. Kidswear manufacturers recognize this by offering different options in children’s clothing design. Boys’ apparel ranges from athletic to stylish depending on geographic region and age group. Girls’ choices differ only slightly with slightly more exotic options based on age group, geographic region, and parental influence. Kids also have choices when it comes to outerwear such as jackets, hats, mittens, and leggings combo sets. Parents should be willing to buy multiple sets of children’s wear so their kids can stay warm during cold weather months.
Children change rapidly based on age, cultural exposure, and parental influence. This makes it difficult to define a set trend in children’s wear. However, there are a few constants such as color and gender identification in most clothing choices for young people. Retailers offer a wide range of options for kids’ clothing at reasonable prices online or at discount retailers. Children also have a wide range of choices when it comes to apparel for their hobbies, games, and physical development stages.
Quick and Simple Tips on Choosing Kidswear
There were so many ideas presented earlier. To wrap it all up, let us conclude by listing a short and simple set of very straightforward ideas and considerations when shopping for kidswear.
Comfort is Critical
The pieces of clothing and accessories must be comfortable. Period. Little children will not think twice about expressing their “disapproval” of their uncomfortable apparel even in public. Size is a big factor in the comfort of kidswear. Remember, too tight or a little big size is not a good thing. Clothing that is too tight is uncomfortable. They will have trouble removing the problem. Kids should not feel restricted. However, too loose clothing can also lead to problems. Same for footwear. Imagine wearing uncomfortable shoes for a long time. That would certainly ruin anyone’s day.
Shades, Colors, and Patterns
When it comes to playtime, staying clean is far from the minds of children. The clothes they have on receive all the dirt and impact of these playtimes. Hence, it is advised that one should choose the color scheme of kidswear wisely. It’s common for children to have favorite colors. However, as much as possible, go for colors that can be easily combined and washed at high temperatures. Blue, red, white, or brightly colored children’s clothing, can be washed at fairly high temperatures to remove stubborn stains.
Understand the Fabric Material
Non-stretch fabrics, especially organic ones, can last for years and retain their shape and texture after several washes. Again, as stated earlier, comfort is paramount for kidswear, so you should never select kidswear that will be itchy on the children’s skin. The same goes for allergies.
Ask the Kids
Surprisingly, even very young children these days have a ”fashion sense” already. Most of the time this is influenced by what they watch on TV or by people they usually meet. In any case, if the parents are shopping for kidswear with the children, it would be great if they are asked what they want or what they are looking for. At the least, have them choose among the kidswear items already narrowed down by the parents.
For very young kids, parents usually already have a preferred set of options for clothing for going out, for playtime, and all sorts of events. As much as family finances can manage, parents should continue building up a wardrobe suitable for all seasons and occasions. At least have two options for, for example, birthday parties. Or perhaps two or three for playtime. The bottom line of this is parents should have suitable kidswear available and ready for kids on any occasion or activity.
❉Fabrics for Kids Wear
Kids wear, including baby clothing, is one of the biggest, if not the biggest, sectors in the apparel industry today. It has been estimated that this sector will generate up to almost US$2378b in 2022. This figure includes the US$48bn contribution of the US market. By 2027, the estimate is already at US$352bn, which means that manufacturers of kids’ wear will have their hands and factories full over the next few years.
Over the last few decades, there have been many advancements in industrial technology, raw material processing, and skills and techniques in garment production. Now we see many innovations and improvements in how clothes are made, including in the types and quality of fabrics used, whether for adult clothes, the haute couture segment, or even kids’ wear.
Through trial and error, daily experiences, and, in some cases, even through laboratory testing, certain fabrics have been selected and further developed to become more appropriate and suitable for different types of clothing. Varied factors are taken into account, like weather, wear, and tear, usage, skin type, age, etc. This is why fabric choice for kids’ wear is very critical. Compared to adults, children have more sensitive skin. The sizes of the garments are also a factor because children’s clothing is naturally smaller, so certain fabrics behave differently depending on their length and how they are put together.
Let’s look at some fabrics that are usually used and recommended for kids’ wear.
Suitable Fabrics for Kids Wear
This choice for kids’ wear should not really come as any surprise. Hands down, cotton would be the first fabric to come to mind. It has long been thought to be one of the most environmentally friendly fabrics. This fabric is great for making kids’ trousers, shirts, dresses, and rompers. Kids’ wear and other garments made from cotton typically last a long time. They are hypoallergenic and are very resistant to chemicals.
Cotton’s characteristics that make it great for kids’ wear is that it lets air flow through it and can absorb and hold water. Still, it does have some drawbacks, like being hard to iron and changing shape while being washed. Because of this, cotton items can have a small amount of elastane or polyester.
There are several types of cotton. Take a look at some of them:
This lightweight, soft, 100% cotton fabric with a high thread count is great for making kids wear, especially baby clothes. It is somewhat see-through and has a slightly crisp feel, but it is also very soft because it is made of very fine thread. It is a favorite fabric for ceremonial garments like christening gowns. Lawn cotton is versatile because it can be printed and dyed in many different colors and patterns thanks to new technology.
Jersey-knit fabrics, also known as single knit, are one of the most basic forms of weft knitting and are a widely used, highly diverse popular alternative for a wide range of apparel styles in the fashion industry. The lightweight fabric is highly absorbent and breathable, making it an excellent choice for fitness, t-shirts, underwear, baby apparel, and children’s clothing. It is known for its stretchiness, which is perfect for garments that can accommodate growth spurts and the high activity of little children. One disadvantage of Jersey is that it tends to pile up and runs the risk of snagging.
This long-lasting fabric can be crafted into a wide variety of baby clothes, including tops, dresses, rompers, and more. Decorated or embroidered broadcloth is a nice touch. This fabric’s lightness and smoothness make it suitable for a cotton or cotton blend construction.
To make baby garments, go with cotton. The cotton broadcloth is shiny and has a subtle ribbed look on the surface. This fabric for kids’ wear is suitable for producing formal dresses and gowns. Dresses and blouses for little girls can be found in this fabric, some of which feature exquisite needlework.
Unlike standard cotton, which can irritate sensitive skin, brushed cotton is a blend of several fabric structures that results in a luxuriously soft and smooth surface. The breathability of this fabric makes it ideal for use in a wide range of sewing, patchwork, and quilting tasks, and it also helps to minimize perspiration. It is commonly used to sew warm pajamas for children during the colder months. Brushed cotton is excellent for kids’ wear in the fall when the weather is unpredictable and in the spring when the sun has not yet fully emerged due to its outstanding insulating characteristics. It protects from wind chill without being uncomfortably hot.
This cotton fabric is loosely-woven and great for use as a cloth diaper because of its high absorbency. While this material may not be as attractive as other fabrics, it is excellent for dress linings and under-dress petticoats.
Cotton voile, like cotton lawn, is a sheer or semi-transparent, lightweight fabric. It’s perfect for producing cute small dresses because it’s thinner than lawn yet still flows easily. For example, the dots of a swiss voile are woven right into the fabric, making for a very unique and stylish material. The polka dots on this fabric make it ideal for smocking and pleating projects.
Fleece textiles are constructed from polyester, a synthetic material that cannot be confused with natural wool. Plush and cozy insulation is achieved by weaving the fibers into a lightweight fabric and then brushing them to increase fiber volume. Fleece is a simple alternative to wool and is very convenient to clean, making it a popular material for clothing manufacturers.
Like cotton, linen is a widely used natural fabric ideal for the warmer summer months.
It allows air to travel through and absorbs moisture, resulting in excellent moisture wicking. The drawbacks are that it is tough to iron and rather rough to the touch. While it is ideal for kids’ wear, including baby clothes, it may not be suitable yet for newborn babies. Compared to some of the other fabrics used in clothing, linen is more expensive. Unfortunately, linen also shrinks sometimes.
The satin fabric has a sheen that makes it appear similar to silk. Aside from being easy to iron, it also has good ventilation, which is one of the reasons why it is great for kids’ wear. Satin’s limited heat conductivity means it will keep the baby toasty warm.
Satin garments are among the best for use during the hot summer months because they seldom ever wrinkle and are remarkably long-lasting. Satin is made from either natural fibers like silk or cotton or synthetic fibers like polyester, rayon, or nylon. Satin dresses and frocks are lovely attire for formal occasions.
Wool is a renewable resource for fabrics and other products, taken chiefly from sheep and goats. It’s soft and silky to the touch, which is an added bonus. Because of its warmth and tenderness, wool is a great material for kids’ clothing. It works well in cold weather and for outdoor events. The material is lightweight, washable, and airy.
Wool is long-lasting, doesn’t crease, and won’t make you itch. Depending on the quality of the wool, this material can be used for both fashion and utility. However, Despite its many positive attributes, maintaining quality may not really be easy.
Another example of a highly renewable material that is organic in origin is bamboo rayon. It has been a fast-growing choice for kids’ wear. Derived from bamboo, rayon fiber is incredibly soft and long-lasting.
It’s perfect for the delicate skin of little kids and is thermal-regulating. That means that it will adjust to a child’s body temperature, and consequently, the body is less likely to grow overly hot. Furthermore, bamboo rayon is believed to have non-allergenic features, which should be a characteristic of all kid’s wear.
When a baby begins to crawl and toddle around, denim is an excellent choice for kids’ wear since it can withstand a lot of wear and tear. Denim for jeans, for example, can range from a soft denim blend to a truly rough and robust 100% cotton denim.
Fabrics to Avoid
Children and infants require textiles that are sturdy, soft, and flexible.
In the absence of certain requirements and qualities, some fabrics are not recommended for making children’s garments.
Artificial fur sheds, creating a risk for children inhaling or swallowing those that fall out of kids’ wear with this. The same is true for poorly-made children’s toys.
This plastic material is heavily used in awnings, bags, upholstery, and even in flame-resistant apparel. Using this in kids’ wear is dangerous because it contains chemicals that can irritate skin and trigger allergic responses and rashes. However, it is common to see this material used in accessories and decorations on clothing.
The reason why silk isn’t recommended for kids to wear is not related to any health risk or physical injury. Being the active, curious, and adventurous little angels that they are, little kids could ruin silk in no time. True, the softness and luxurious texture of silk would feel wonderful on their skin, but they would not really last long—quite a pity.
Guide When Considering Other Fabrics
Natural or artificial?
Children tend to have more sensitive skin compared to adults, so it’s vital to choose textiles for kids to wear that won’t cause any irritation.
Fabrics made from organic materials are generally safe for human skin and have better compatibility with them than synthetic materials. Furthermore, the skin can react to the chemicals used to produce synthetic materials, causing allergies.
Therefore, organic fibers are preferable for kids’ wear. Likewise, when manufacturing garments for children, it’s better to use natural fibers like cotton, wool, linen, etc.
Weave: Tight or loose?
If you want to be able to pick out quality textiles for kids’ wear, pay attention to how they are woven. Fabrics that are loosely woven, for example, are easily perforated and may not be able to sustain regular use.
Tightly woven textiles, on the other hand, are sturdier and can help kids wear to sustain the rigorous treatment they often receive from youngsters at play. As a result, you should consider the fabric’s weave density before making a final decision.
Light or Heavy?
When selecting the best fabrics for kids’ wear, it’s also crucial to consider the weight of the fabric. While some textiles are as light as air, others might be cumbersome for young children to wear and move around in. Kids have a lot of energy, so it’s no surprise that they’re constantly on the move.
Therefore, they require clothing that allows for quick and continuous movement. Kids’ wear made from light fabrics is usually very breathable.
Versatile or Restricted?
The varying environmental conditions and changing situations may be too harsh for some fabrics to handle. Kids’ wear ideally should be wearable in varied situations. Whether the item of clothing is worn on its own or layered together with other garments, it should ideally be ready to be put on at any time.
Since children physically develop rapidly, their clothing becomes too small for them too soon. Children’s growth spurts tend to send kids’ wear to storage way before they’re worn out. This, therefore, highlights the need to invest in fabrics that endure and “adapt” to children’s development. This is why stretchy or elastic fabrics are great for kids’ wear.
Denim is one fabric worth mentioning because of its durability. On the other hand, fabrics with prints that use the same base color as the fabric tend to fade less quickly than those with prints that use a different color.
Unlike adults who are willing to sacrifice their comfort and even health for a moment or a day of stylishness, children will not hesitate to express their disapproval of clothing that is not comfortable and easy on their bodies. Lightweight and breathable fabrics are the way to go and avoid kids’ wear with thick linings.
