Baby and Kids Clothes These Days Are Super Fashionable

Meow!

Just the other day I was scrolling through Pinterest and you know what...I felt completely out of style when I saw how fashionable were the babies and kids.

Baby clothes were themed around famous Japanese animes and some even looked like they were party costumes!

I could barely see any of those kids wearing those Disney 'souvenir' t-shirts with baggy long jeans, or even those dresses that looks like our mothers made them out of tablecloth or even curtains.

Their clothes were all made to be like runway-ready. I kid you not! Look at these:

This realization made me aware of how much time have changed. Lols...I am speaking like I am that old. Don’t worry I am only 26.

Kids fashion nowadays are not that far from what adults wear and sometimes it makes me wonder...being fashionable is one thing but why does it seem like the young ones these days are all trying to look like adults.

I know it’s not their fault because those are what the fashion labels produce...but let’s think about it for awhile.

You only have like 17 years to be a kid and enjoy life without worrying about anything; maybe just probably when is the next meal is going to be served. And you will have like over 50 years to be an adult where you would have to face endless obstacles, bills, loans and so on.

I bet you are asking me this, “But they are just wearing clothes, what’s the big deal?”
Well, not much really, I too do believe that they look  freaking adorable in their outfits. But, I have seen parents dressing up their little ones in runway-ready outfits for a weekend out only to end up scolding them for messing up their clothes with their food.

Let kids be kids. They are supposed to messed things up once in awhile, they are supposed to get down on their four limbs and have fun. That’s what kids do. Where is the fun in being a child if you are going to stop them from being who they are.

Yes, you dress up them up to look the part...but you are not allowing them to act the part.

Back in my time, the only baby clothing we had were usually t-shirts with a huge Mickey’s head or some souvenir T-shirts that were bought during vacations. On really fancy days, ours moms will box out their sewing machine and quickly patch up fabrics and create a dress that was considered grand.

At times when we were out playing in the garden with these outfits (because let’s face it adults take way too much time getting ready), we would often fall down as we played ‘Chase & Catch’ and get dirty. Our parents rarely would scold us for dirtying our clothes but we would usually get yelled at for injuring ourselves. Typical of Asian parents, I guess.

Things were simple back then...but fashion was quite bland. Nowadays, it’s like everyday is ready to pose for the camera and the fashion variety is endless!

Maybe, just maybe, I am being bitter about how  fashionable these babies and kids are. Just look at their ‘camera-ready’ outfits...that we didn’t have that back then.

Thank god, selfie wasn’t a thing in our time, can you imagine the amount of embarrassing pictures that would be stored and ready to taunt you?

Either way, I am glad that baby clothes and kids clothes are fashion-forward because that would mean that when I have my own kids, I can dress them up in whatever outfit that they like but with style.

And of course, they are allowed to be as mischievous as they want, I would probably just need to prepare an excellent detergent that can get rid of all the stains. Hahaha

Do you have your own sets of concerns regarding kids fashion these days? If you do or even if you don’t, tell me what do you think of this trend?

Till the next post, see you!
