Polyester-Cotton

Key styles for this exciting trend include graphic prints using bright colors and contrast with white, bold solid colors, mini-mod dresses, and playful silhuoettes. Rolled cuffs and sneakers make it more functional for kids to play, imagine, and reach their full creative potential.

Stretch Denim

Jersey-Knit

[Fabric Story]

In order to allow children to play and move freely, cotton and cotton-polyester blends will be popular for this trend. Lightweight linens and cotton batiste are perfect for outdoor activities and will stay cool, keeping children more comfortable in warm weather. Stretch denim and jersey-knit with spandex is great for tight clothing to allow stretch and ease during playtime.

Key styles showing in this trend are loose fitting clothing with a more shabby-chic and relaxed look. Looser tops, natural colors, fedoras and berets, layered cardigans,and vintage shoes are just some of the focuses for this trend. This look is all about being casual while still upholding an expensive yet vintage feel.

Wool Gauze

Cotton

[Fabric Story]

Lightweight and stretch denim will be popular for boys and girls to add a more casual feel to the clothing. Jersey-knit for shirts and polyester-cotton poplin for blouses allow for easy flow and natural feelings. Wool gauze is also an alternative to cotton and linen, creating an even more natural feel and a more mature textile.
