Flip through the pages of any magazine or browse the photos on Pinterest boards and you’ll notice a new trend gaining momentum in the fashion world: adorable little guys and gals sporting miniature-sized designer clothing from some of the biggest names in fashion: Armani, Burberry, Dolce & Gabbana, Paul Smith Junior, Stella McCartney, Tommy Hilfiger, and the list goes on and on! This wave of “tot couture” has even inspired an annual global fashion week held in London where designers can show off their miniature-sized pieces for the upcoming season on the cutest little models to ever hit the catwalk. But should the average parent really care about investing in designer kids clothes? Absolutely. Here’s why:
Tot Couture Mania in the Media
Celebrities have always been trendsetters, but now their children are making names for themselves in the fashion world as well. The ten-year-old son of David Beckham and Posh Spice, Romeo, made headlines this February when he became the face of a Burberry ad campaign that appeared in Vogue UK. And at just seven years old, the daughter of Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes, Suri, has become the inspiration for multiple blogs that document what this little fashionista is wearing when she’s seen stepping out with her celeb mum on the streets of New York City.
While celeb kids may have started the “tot couture” fashion revolution, they’re not the only ones with killer style. Blogs such as Heart & Habit, Ladys & Gents, and Children with Swag all serve to showcase photos of average little boys and girls clad in high fashion ensembles. Of course, the only way to earn your own son or daughter a spot on one of these trending blogs is to start dressing them in cool designer threads. And don’t forget: treating them to designer outfits every now and again will make them feel extra special for an important occasion.
Only the Best Quality and Comfort
The other big benefit of dressing your child in designer threads is the quality you can expect. Designer kids’ clothing is made from high quality materials, meaning that these pieces will long outlast the cheap imitation pieces sold at discount retailers through all the dirt, spills, and messes your children are bound to encounter in their everyday lives. High quality fabrics also tend to be more comfortable than lower grade ones, so your kids will look and feel great in their new designer threads. What are you waiting for?
