Designer children’s clothing attracts celebrities and luxury-loving parents. Do buy your kids designer clothing or do you say no? Read this & decide for yourself.
Dressing children in today’s competitive society has become a harder task than most of us would have imagined growing up. It is no longer about simply matching colors or a name or store brand, but more about “what” designer children’s clothing your kids are wearing.
With a focus on celebrity parents and what names they dress their children in as well as designers launching designer baby and kids clothing along with their regular adult collections, the pressure is on. But how far are parents willing to go? How much is too much when it comes to your children and their clothes?
Celebrities Who Buy Designer Children’s Clothing
Actress Jessica Alba is often spotted with her daughter Honor who has been seen in cashmere by Bambeeno Cashmere. The brand has a fabulous collection of cashmere sweaters for girls and boys ranging from sizes 3 months to 12 years old. The colors are fun and the designs playful. However is $75 to $140 too much for a sweater your child will most probably get dirty? Has dressing like mommy gone too far?
Celebrity couple Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt have their mini-brood dressed in designer children’s clothing to display their own individualities, but one thing remains the same: these outfits would take most adults months or even years to save for. Ralph Lauren outerwear is a Jolie-Pitt favorite, and at roughly $150 per child’s coat, the brood is expensive! When you have more than one child, how do you split the budget and can you always get away with hand-me-downs?
Ed Hardy: A Favorite Designer For Kids
Another celebrity favorite amongst the younger generation is Ed Hardy. Designed bright and loud, the brand naturally attracts kids. At $100 a hoodie and $50 a tee, the kids had better learn to love keeping their clothes clean too! Ed Hardy started as an adult’s clothing brand; however, as many designers soon realized, young kids and toddlers love to dress like their parents. With the demand comes higher prices and with fashion conscious young minds comes big bills!
Is Designer Kid’s Clothing Worth It?
Often when it comes to purchasing high-priced designer children’s clothing, the tag price is not the end of the issue. After that comes dry cleaning, as you cannot throw cashmere or the majority of designer outerwear in the machines at home. So when you purchase outfits for your childrem, do you look at designer names, what the celebrity parents are purchasing, seasonal trends, quality, or does cost still pay a higher role?
How do you say no when your child wants what the other kids have? Should you set limits on designer children’s clothing in today’s society of “Keeping Up With The Joneses” or is it more important to build a standard for your children to aim for?
