Classic children’s clothing is a style that never gets out of fashion. It transcends the years, giving the young ones a timeless yet lovely look. Many other fashion trends have a short lifespan and change over time.

Depending on your gender and your preferences, you can choose from a variety of classic looks for the child. Please check out the following five classic looks the next time you go to buy girls’ dresses or baby boy clothes for your loved ones.

Monogrammed Clothing


In the olden days, people monogrammed their clothing to identify it on the clothing line. This style morphed into a stylish fashion that is used to personalise clothing. A monogram is a small embroidery with the initials of the wearer. You can purchase monogrammed clothing or personalise it with your child’s initials.

It is possible to monogram any clothing. However, it looks great on fleece and knitted styles as they have thick fibres. Give your modern clothing a classic touch by having it monogrammed for them

Smocked Clothing for Children


Smocking is a traditional technique that includes embroidered bands, pleats and smocks that gather fabric so that it can stretch. Before elastic bands were present, smocking was used in the bodices, necklines, cuffs and any other area where elasticity was required.

It is also used as an embroidery style. You can have smocked dresses, pants and tops in various coloured threading. The style works with both baby boy clothes and girls’ dresses.

Victorian-inspired Sundresses


During the Victorian era, sundresses had elongated V-shaped bodices and came with full skirts, with the sides of the bodices stopping at the body’s natural waistline. Their sleeves were tight at the dress’s top but a little wider between the elbows and the wrist. The dresses were comfortable to wear because of the classic style, which limited hand movement.

You can consider the timeless style for your girls. It is simple to put on and accentuates the feminine side of girls aged one to three years. During spring and summer, you can go for floral prints and bold colours to match the feel of the time,

Shorts and Caps


Shorts and caps are some of the oldest classic clothing items that have existed. Common designs like the flat cap, stockman cap, and Western cap give the wearer the casual ‘wild west’ look. They also look great on baby boys.

You can go for earthy tones for the shorts and shirt, and then match the cap with some long socks. Ensure that the short is long enough to cover beyond the knees. This style is ideal for children of all ages, but it works best when the kid has started to walk.

Knitted Collection


The old grandma knit collection is a timeless fashion that is also functional. In traditional societies, grandmothers used to knit sweaters, socks, hats and pants for small children. You can have an entire knit collection for the kid or just mix one knit piece with conventional dressing.

Knitted clothing comes in various designs and with embroidery. You can have a few pieces for your baby in various colours and knitted designs.
