Check out the cutest, stylish and happening fashion trends for kids’ winter wear for 2016!
Personally, I am what many may call an ‘old-fashioned mom’. And that has a few literal connotations. A firm believer of DIY, I stitched, knitted, embroidered and appliquéd (and still continue to) a lot of my child’s clothes. Click here to see how to get started on your own DIY sewing project!
Fashion on kids is super cute. I go all ga-ga when I see little men in bow-ties or little ladies in dainty tutus. Here are a few top trends popular in kids’ winter wear to make your kid stylish and make you a super efficient stylist.
It is sheer joy to work with a color palette for kids because there is such a huge variety. From lemon yellow to fire-engine red and parrot green to neon blue – kids carry off everything well. This is the best time to experiment with colors in Indian as well as western attire because the forecast also favors bright colors. There is also a fixation for natural colors – beige, cream, light blue, sand, and coffee.
In addition, kids fashion trends have turned also to folk style: fashion designers decorated kid’s clothes with various style embroideries, beautiful lace, fringe, appliqués and ribbons.So don’t hesitate from making your child wear a bright handloom ikat shirt from Fabindia with a hand-knitted-by-granny sweater.

Bearing in mind the fact that a child’s wardrobe is a veritable wonderland, do take care to ensure his or her likes in terms of fairytale or cartoon characters. Mothercare always does these amazing collections around hit themes and films that will make you wish they did those super soft garments in adult sizes as well. So right from Frozen, to Spiderman and cutesy patchwork characters – there is something for every child.
One of the most popular materials this winter is velour. With a cotton base, velour clothing will keep your child comfortable as well as warm. Plus, velour doesn’t wear off easily and is so easy to maintain since it dries in a jiffy and does not need ironing (WHAT A RELIEF!!).
Denim and corduroy are also equally popular, as are plush cashmere ponchos and hand-knitted pieces.

While anything goes for kids, there are two themes that promise to stand out this winter for kids’ clothing – a ‘back to school’ theme and a ‘forest’ theme. So bring out those tartan skirts, pick plaids and choose camouflage or animal prints for your child.
