Kids would be kids no doubt, but when it comes to fashion and style, kids can give grown-ups a run for their money. Kids are more inclined to fashion nowadays unlike their predecessors. They are more conscious about what to wear and what would make them look good. Gone are the days when parents would get a white tee shirt and a pair of jeans for their kids who gracefully accepted it. Now, kids have their own views about fashion and are aware of the trends. While shopping is done by the parents, but they have to take into consideration the likes and dislikes of kids, who now decide what to wear.
There are three distinct reasons for the change in mindset of kids.
- The style of parenting has changed a lot. Kids are now given more space to be able to develop a process of thinking on their own. Earlier it was the norm for the parents to decide and the kids were bound to follow it. This trend has now changed. Kids are being asked by parents to speak out their mind about different things and this has resulted in kids being able to express their thoughts and opinion.
- The second reason is the widespread audiovisual media and the Internet that has opened up the world to the kids, who are now aware of everything that makes news including fashion and style. The television channels beam fashion programs a lot and the Internet which is available to kids too, supplies all kinds of fashion related information that influence their fashion sense.
- Thirdly, kids love to imitate. They pick up fashion ideas from their screen idols, friends and peers and blending it with their own knowledge, they create their own fashion without depending on parents to make them understand what to wear.
Accessories are important
Dresses are not the only elements of kids’ fashion. There are accessories too that complement the dresses and gives a fulfillment to the styles. There are different kinds of head wears available for boys that are attractive enough to match with different kinds of dresses. For great looks from head to toe there are different types of caps and hats that are can make kids appear unique in their attire. Boys’ Fedora hats , driver caps, pork pies and derbies make an interesting range of head wears that keep kids breezy and cool or warm and cozy. Choosing the right hat or cap can make kids appear beautiful and attractive in any fashion season.
Boys’ Fedora hats of all sizes are now a part of kids’ fashion ensemble. Different kinds of materials are used for making these accessories – straw hats, corduroy caps, braid hats, plaid driver caps, the list is long enough to test your patience.
More and more kids are joining the fashion brigade with only a handful still unmindful about it. But it may not be long, before we can see them jump into the bandwagon of fashion conscious kids.
