It is true for everybody that there comes a point in life when their parents say to them, "You did not come with instructions!" When this was said to us, our expectations were that our parents knew what they have to do.
We felt this way as we didn't know better. But, when the tables are turned and you are the parent, you totally understand what they were saying to you all those years ago.
In this article you are going to find a little help, a sort of instruction manual," on how you can deal with a very important aspect of children's lives, i.e., clothing. There are a few very important things to consider while choosing clothes for your child. Let's take a look at them, one at a time.
1. Gender - The gender of your baby is very important when determining the clothes that you buy him/her. This may sound redundant but it is a very good place to get started. You need to know the gender of clothing that you are in search of.
2. Age - Most of the clothing for kids is differentiated using age groups. For example, some clothes may be for babies, say three to six months old and others may be for little kids, say three years old. These sizes have been calculated over a long period and is the standard in the baby clothing industry. As long as you remember how old your baby is, you should not have any problems.
3. Weather - Children are severely affected by the climate. Thus, it is imperative that you have clothing for your children for every different climate. You can break the clothes down into different season, like summer & winter and the few months in between.
4. Expect a mess - When you go out to shop for clothes for your baby, it is quite natural that you would want him/her to be the best dressed kid on the block. This is not bad, but you should remember that children are usually very messy individuals. They soil themselves, spit up food, throw up & do many other things which are sure to spoil their clothes.
Thus, it is recommended to buy them good clothes, but make sure that they aren't too expensive. These are a few simple things which, if you keep in mind, are most certainly going to help you with getting the right clothes for your baby.

Parents who give a lot of importance to new fashion trends may be interested in knowing that fashion trends are even quite popular among children. This is as natural extension to fashion as there ever could be. You do not want your child to be caught wearing a shirt from last year now do you?
The good thing is that modern designers of clothing have anticipated such needs of people and they have made it possible for virtually any look in adult wardrobe to be replicated in childrens wardrobe as well. This means that you and your cute little child can be wearing the same things, the child's being a miniature version of yours of course.
The latest trends that have come into fashion this year are saturated earth tones instead of neon's or pastels like navy blue, burgundy or olive green in the case of boys as well as in girls.
Likewise, the heavier fabrics like tween, denim and corduroy are slowly coming back into fashion as they provide warmth as well as durability. This is also an advantage for families who have more than one child as the clothes are durable enough to be easily handed down to the younger children as the elder ones outgrow them. Something that is never going to go out of style is sweatshirts with hoods & jeans. This is because they give the child a comfortable look which does very well for children ar school or while they are playing.
If you are looking for a more complete look then you can consider layering the tops or then adding cute little accessories to the outfit as a way of making it change from normal to fantastic. Many bold patterns have started to dominate the markets and swirls, flowers and hearts have come into fashion in the case of girls.
Irrespective of the trends that you choose to follow, children have to be given clothes which are comfortable, warm and practical. You can get your child the best looking clothes in the world, but if you do not let him/her play in it then the clothes are as good as useless.
