From print to sparkle to artsy touches— here’s what your kids will want to wear as the weather turns cooler and the holiday schedule picks up.
Metallic tones: While gold and silver-toned clothing and shoes are the rage these days, pretty colors with a metallic sheen are trending in children’s fashion too. Shiny biker jackets, sparkly sandals, gold buckles, and silver or rose-gold bags and backpacks, are bound to make your little one sparkle!

Tribal and folk style: This year, many designers are drawing inspiration from folk traditions, using their own interpretations for a modern twist. The influence can come from all over the world — think African, Aztec, Native American and the Indian tribal communities. So, beads, feathers, pom poms, intricate thread work, tribal-influenced floral embroidery and geometric patterns are going to be hot in children’s fashion.

Gender-neutral fashion: Do not want to limit your children’s’ choices? Then make a conscious effort to avoid stereotypes while dressing them up. There has been a gradual shift towards gender-neutral fashion for kids, with both conscientious parents and designers ditching the typical ‘pink and delicate for girls, and blue and brainy for boys’ approach.
