What makes some garments be considered to be fashionable baby clothing and some garments not be considered to be fashionable baby clothing. If you have heard the old adage about beauty being in the eyes of the beholder then you understand to some degree what creates the terminology of fashionable and not.
Fashionable baby clothing to some people are articles of clothing that meet the fashion requirements of the time. In the late 1950s and the early 1960s all women wore dresses all of the time. They wore pants very rarely and the baby clothing was created to mimic the fashion of the day. Baby girls had dresses and they had poodle skirts just like the big girls wore.
Fashionable baby clothing today would depend on the person you are. People who are in motorcycle gangs would consider small leather jackets, leather pants, and bandanas to be fashionable, while people who are more into duck hunting, and outdoor sports would find camouflage clothing to be more fashionable.
The idea of fashion is according to the people who see it, the need for the garment, and the reaction of the general public. At times the more that the general public rejects a particular fashion style the more popular it becomes. The mini skirt saw that happen in the 1960s and the early 1970s.
There was a time in the past when all babies wore gowns and dresses until they were at least two years old. At the age of two the children were then placed into knee length pants if they were boys and into short dresses if they were girls. Little girls did not get to wear long dresses that came past the knees until they were past the age of eight and boys were almost in their teens before they were allowed to wear pants that were ankle length.
Each year the fashionable colors change, the length of skirt hems change, whether or not to let the children wear jeans or dress clothing changes. The one thing that never changes is that whatever is in style today will soon go out of style. Whatever goes out of style will come back into style at a later date in time.
If you want to buy something for the kids that is fashionable just buy something that you like, and that you think is attractive. If you can do that, you will be able to get the best one for your little baby.
