The Latest and Most Popular Fashion Trends That Kids Everywhere Love

Did you know that the US boasts the largest kids’ fashion market worldwide, beating the Asia-Pacific region for the top spot? What’s more, with a projected CAGR of 8.67%, the top spot is for the US to keep.

If you’re like most loving parents, you want your children to look their best at all times. And what better way to ensure that than by following the latest and most popular fashion trends? You’d want your kids to be draped in the latest kids’ wear to ensure they’re “dripping in finesse.”

Unfortunately, kids’ fashion is a murky subject for most parents. That’s because most parents are detached from what their kids are wearing and just buy anything they find in the store. If you want to make your child hip and chic, you’re in the right place.

In today’s post, we’ll look at some of the most popular fashion trends for kids right now.

Parachute Hoods

Our first kids’ fashion trend draws back from the trends of the mid-80s. Parachute hoods are making a huge comeback in kids’ fashion. Made from light and soft materials, these hoodies are perfect for spring and cool summer evenings.

Apart from being stylish, these hoods also protect your kids from the rain and wind. They’ll look like astronauts with stylish space suits in their parachute hoodies.

Oversized Shirts and Sweatshirts

Oversized shirts and sweatshirts are not only comfortable but also super stylish. You’re likely to spot more than a few kids donning oversized t-shirts and sweatshirts this spring. This is a throwback to the 90s and early 2000s hip hop era where baggy pants and t-shirts were hot.

GAP has an excellent selection of oversized tees in blue and pink. If you’re looking for color variety, you might want to check out stores like Old Navy. Oversized sweatshirts are a great way to keep things simple yet stylish.

Cargo Pants and Joggers

Cargo pants and joggers are as comfortable as they come. They allow your kids to move freely, so they’re ready for anything. Whether it’s a trip to the park or an intense game of tag, they’ll be good to go. These pants are readily available in most fashion and retail stores, including GAP, Target, and Kohl’s.

Layering

Layering is a popular fashion trend for both adults and kids. It’s an excellent way to mix and match different styles and create unique looks. You can start with a base layer, like a t-shirt, and then add on a sweater, jacket, or scarf.

This trend is perfect for spring, as the weather can be unpredictable.  Layering allows your kids to take off or add on layers as needed.

One great thing about layering is that you can mix and match different styles. For example, you can pair a sporty t-shirt with a denim jacket. Or, you could layer a dress over a long-sleeved shirt. The only limit is your imagination.

Futuristic Fabrics

This trend, which started in late 2020, has trickled down to 2022. Futuristic fabrics are still all the rage and will certainly make your kids popular at school.

By futuristic fabrics, we’re talking about fabrics with metallic, vinyl, and holographic coatings. Think along the lines of Daft Punk and Star Trek costumes. The shiny colors and holographic effects are a hit with most kids and will certainly be with yours too.

Matching Sets and Color-Coordinated Clothes

Very few things are as cute as toddlers in matching outfits. This year, we’ll see the comeback of the two-piece outfit. For instance, t-shirts that match with jeggings or jumpers with joggers.

This is a great fashion trend for kids because you can easily put them together and they always look stylish. You can find matching sets at most stores that sell kids’ clothes, including GAP, Janie and Jack, and H&M.

Alternatively, you could also go for color-coordinated clothes. This is where you mix and match different clothes in the same color family. For example, a blue t-shirt with yellow shorts or a green dress with a purple cardigan.

Mixing Fabrics With Different Textures

Another falling hot trend in kids’ apparel is mixing different-textured fabrics. We’re seeing people combine typical fabrics with lacquer or some of the modern jacket fabrics.

If you want your kids to make a bold statement, then this is the fashion trend to go with. Try a bit of creative experimentation to find out what works and what doesn’t.

Bright and Deep Shades

Bright, deep, and juicy shades will certainly be a hallmark of kids’ fashion this year.  There are no boring and safe colors when it comes to kids’ clothes.

This is the year to go all out with color. We’re seeing a lot of bright colors, like fuchsia, orange, and electric blue. We’re also seeing plenty of deep shades like emerald green and royal purple.

If you want your kids to stand out from the crowd, then make sure you dress them in bright and deep shades. You can find clothes in these colors at most stores that sell kids’ clothes.

High-Waisted Crop Jackets

High-waisted crop jackets really help bring your kids’ entire outfit together. They’re unique, adventurous, and tons of fun. Consider getting them in deep colors or futuristic fabrics to really go with the time.

Crop jackets can be easily matched with t-shirts, skirts, and shorts. They’ll look great no matter what you pair them with. You can find crop jackets at most stores that sell kids’ clothes, including Zara, H&M, and Forever 21.

Button Clasps

This is more of an accessory trend, but it’s one that can really elevate your kids’ outfits. Button clasps are a popular way to add a bit of flair to any outfit.

They come in all sorts of colors, shapes, and sizes. You can find them at most stores that sell kids’ clothes, including GAP, H&M, and Zara.

Patchwork Clothing

One trend that has been around for a while and is still popular today is patchwork clothing. This involves taking different fabrics and sewing them together to create a unique piece of clothing.

Kids love patchwork clothes because they are often colorful and eye-catching. They’re also usually comfortable since they’re made from soft fabrics. You can find patchwork clothing at most fashion stores, but if you’re feeling creative, you can create your own patchwork clothing.

Large Prints on Clothing

Large prints on clothing are popular in kids’ clothing nowadays. This can be anything from animals to cartoon characters to flowers.

This trend is popular because it allows kids to express their personalities through their clothing. It’s also a way for parents to show off their kids’ unique styles. Kids’ clothes with patterns are everywhere, but you can always choose to make your own prints for the kids’ clothes.

Kids’ Rings

Kids’ rings are among the hottest accessories right now for kids, especially pre-teens. They add a bit of personality to any outfit, and your kids can even wear multiple rings to stand out even more.

However, we highly recommend avoiding the cheap generic kids’ rings you find in most convenient stores. Look for high-quality rings made from top-notch materials. You can even consider hypoallergenic kids rings for kids with severe allergies.

Organic Clothing

Fashion companies are going full throttle on organic clothing. In fact, the organic cotton market was valued at $637.1 million in 2021. Organic clothing has also been a hit with kids, especially with the current hype around sustainable living.

Organic clothing is gentle on the skin, environmentally friendly, and stylish. They’re also super comfortable and help your kids stand out from the rest. What’s more, organic clothing doesn’t interfere with your child’s health and is great for the environment.

2022 Footwear

In 2022, kids’ footwear is all about light-up sneakers, loafers with bunny ears, and princess ballerinas (gold toned). However, there’s also a massive shift towards comfortable footwear since kids want to be free and comfortable in whatever footwear they have on.

Sneakers have always been a favorite for kids and still are. Colorful crocs are also in style for those lazy weekends or during trips to the beach.  Remember to pair your kids’ shoes with their outfits to avoid throwing off their entire wardrobe.

Large Logos

We already mentioned something about how prints are the in thing this year. Logos are also a major highlight for kids’ clothing this season. You’re likely to see large logos splattered on kids’ t-shirts or subtle logos that don’t seem too promotional.

If you pair them well, logos can make a good fashion statement. Just don’t let your kids wear clothes with logos to weddings or church.
