9 Horrible Fashion Trends For Kids

My Daughter the Fashion DivaMy older kids enjoy picking out their own clothes. The other day when I was shopping for my boys some new outfits for school, I was amazed at some of the crazy choices on the racks at some of the children’s clothing shops. I am fairly picky and I make sure that my kids are wearing clothing that isn’t too provocative, have crazy sayings on their shirts, ect. Today, I wanted to share with you 9 horrible fashion trends that Emily Johnson, a fashion expert, has seen in the children’s stores when she was window shopping to see what kids are wearing today.

The fashion trends are fast changing but you still find some styles defy all ‘rules’ of the fashion world to reign supreme. On the other side, you might be happy that some styles are now out of the shops and your sight. I give below a list of the top 9 horrible fashion trends for kids that I could not bear to see any growing child wear. Here you go.


Simply ‘Clueless’

I just cannot imagine how this trend won the hearts of many. A child, who is still innocent to the ways of the world, needs to be dressed in apparel appropriate for her age. Children may not understand the implications of outfits that go higher up the knees and hence arguments are quite common in homes when the trend hits the market. Definitely not the trend that deserves a comeback.

Offensive Printed Tees

Nothing catches up faster than the words on a tee shirt. One of the most favorite trends with kids, some printed tees more than just raised many an eyebrow. The messages in some of the tee shirts were sexy and shattering. It is not just the question how the wearer is seen but it catches up like a contagious disease to affect an innocent passer-by. Definitely not the right way to teach your children the alphabets and sentences.

Padded Bras

You want to read the headline again? Yes, it was introduced in kids’ fashion collections. Why would a child need to be dressed to appear as if she has developed bosom? Just unimaginable how low these designers could go to tap the market. There are, however, wonderful designers whose creativity deliver comfort, style and are in line with modesty. You can shop for kids fashion in specialty shops that were opened to serve children’s fashion trends.

    It is getting harder and harder to buy clothes for my daughter. Thankfully she’s on board with my clothing rules, but I’m not sure how much longer that will last. I had the worst time trying to find her some beginner bras a little while back. Everything had designs or padding or bling on it!! She sure as heck better not be showing them to anyone!! Why do they need to look so fancy??

      I remember buying my daughter beginner bras a few years ago. We opted to get the sports bras because she didn’t need extra padding and it worked out great until she was able to buy regular bras.

    Lingerie!?! Oh my, thank goodness I haven’t seen this, if I did, I may have words with the shop owner! I think it’s GROSS how short the girls’ shorts are these days. We had such a hard time finding shorts for my girls that weren’t “booty shorts”
    I’m all about expressing yourself, but I’m not about showing it all off, especially at such a young age. Thank goodness my 12 yo is not into that risqué style, I hope she never will be.

      My sisters usually pass down their clothes to my daughter and some of their shorts are a bit shorter than I would like for her to wear. I think its tacky. I get that knee length shorts are out but what happened to mid thigh.

      I have asked my own daughter to change clothes on more than one occasion because I didn’t like what she was wearing.

    I sometimes wonder if even the adult females who weat some of the fashions are aware of the unwanted attention they will be getting. To dress a child in these type clothes–I think not!

      I agree Michele, I am trying to teach my own daughter that she doesn’t need to wear some of the crazy trends for that reason. It is gross. The kids are innocent in some ways and are influence by the big designers who are making skimpy clothing. I hope that someone stands up and fights to keep our kids as innocent as long as possible.

    Don’t forget those stupid silly-bands that cut off the circulation at the wrist!

      Wow, I didn’t realize that kids were wearing them that tight. I know that my daughter enjoys making the bracelets out of rubber bands.
