Children are getting a lot more style options when it comes to their wardrobes. From embroidered messages to floral prints, there’s something for everyone!
Gender-neutral clothing is also a popular trend, with cutesy styles that don’t fall into either gender stereotype. For instance, lace dresses and rompers are great for special occasions.
The family look is a trend in kidswear that will be around for a while. With parents becoming increasingly aware of the importance of diversity, inclusion and sound mental health, they want to show solidarity and support for their children through their clothing choices. This can be seen through empowering slogans and prints encouraging young minds to reach for the stars or in unisex pieces like matching dresses for moms and daughters, pajama sets or tracksuits.
Ruffles are a big trend for girls this season and can be found in dresses, skirts and tops. Taking cues from the women’s category, tulle ruffles add a dreamy feel to outfits, while sheer letter appliques and mesh bows are fun accessories.
Returning to the 80s, patchwork is returning this season in both boys’ and girls’ clothing. Look out for striped patterns mixed with gingham and florals in contrasting colors – all designed to be worn together!
Last summer saw maximalism saturate the fashion scene with fruit motifs, wavy checkerboards, and cartoonish drawings that put us back in touch with our inner child. 2022’s pattern trends continue this bold aesthetic with refreshing and energizing styles.
Prints with artistic motifs are a key print trend for the season. These prints are infused with global artisanal touches that spark wanderlust in the wearer. They also have a handcrafted feel that speaks to the current desire for authenticity in fashion.

Another print trend to look out for is zebra, which has replaced leopard and cheetah. This print is sleek and modern, with a hint of sexiness. It’s a great option for tees, skirts, and dresses.
Military-Style Cargo Trousers
Embroidery, patchwork, pleats and quilted items are popular for girls. Colorful co-ords are also a must-have for the season. These consist of a shirt and leggings or trousers. They are available in various colors and prints. Optimistic and supportive slogans on kidswear are also a big trend. This season you will see a lot of pieces with phrases like ‘Inspiring Young Minds’ and ‘Positive Vibes Only’ on them.
Keeping up with fast-moving trends doesn’t have to break the bank. Look for clothing that will last through spring and summer. Unisex apparel is also popular, and it’s easy to find items that will look just as good on a boy or girl. You’ll also see plenty of neutrals in khaki, tan and grey. These are a great option for kids who love to dress up but need smart clothes for school or family events. Shirts in this style are especially versatile as they can be worn with casual and smart shoes.
Emo & Empathy
This season, from emo and bohemian styles to graphic and floral prints, there is no shortage of ways for kids to express their style. In 2023, expect to see a lot of adjustable drawstrings on hoods, sleeves, and hemlines, which can be a great way to keep kids comfortable while playing outdoors!
In the last decade, the popularity of emo fashion has grown in China.

As a result, many young Chinese people wear emo clothing and use emojis to show their emotions!
Look for ruffles, which can add a touch of femininity and whimsy to any outfit. You can also find a lot of gender-neutral clothes, which is a great trend for kids because it allows them to express their personality without worrying about whether the outfit is too girly or boyish!
