Gender neutral clothing items that are of higher quality and have a more down-played aesthetic will give parents a lot more wear and versatility as they add to their families. Classic pieces are timeless and more cost effective.
In case you missed it, gender neutral clothing is a growing trend that is here to stay. Dressing our children in these more subtle tones emerged because of two main reasons in our society. First, having gender neutral clothing is more economical and encourages sustainable fashion. Clothing items that are of higher quality and have a more down-played aesthetic will give parents a lot more wear and versatility as they add to their families. This helps keep clothing costs lower over-time. Second, our society is starting to pull away from gendered colors and these wardrobe items really help blur those lines.
Whether you’re a current parent, expecting, or you are purchasing gifts for someone else, Hazel Baby offers a wide range of high-quality, gender neutral garments. I had a lot of fun scanning the store and looking at every piece. These three clothing items, however, really stuck out to me!
This beautiful but simple onesie from Kid Wild Organics immediately caught my eye. The soft material was gentle to the touch and the color choices were attractive and versatile across all seasons of the year. It’s the perfect item to be worn alone or could easily be paired with other layers in colder months. I could tell the piece was made well and would probably last a long time.
Grey Zip-Up Sweater
I’m obsessed with this grey hooded zip-up sweater from Tiny Twig. The cardigan was so well made and the color is perfect for fall, winter, and spring days which are a bit colder. Little ears on the hood offer a nice little bonus. The sweater was durable yet soft and the classic look would work year after year.
Gender neutral, durable, and important messaging. What’s not to love? Hazel Baby carries several graphic tees for various ages from Go Gently Nation and Rowdy Sprout. These eco-friendly shirts are simple enough to go with a variety of outfits, but are still eye-catching with their great quotes and sayings. They also work well for a variety of ages.
