We all know little girls are made of “sugar and spice and all things nice”, making it such a joy to buy for them as mums and dads welcome them into the big, wide world. With so many options available when it comes to choosing clothes for baby girls, such as dresses, skirts and smocks to name a few, the experience of doing so can sometimes leave buyers scratching their heads over where exactly to start.
Sets help buyers achieve value for money when shopping for baby girls, with added extras such as headbands, mittens and scrunchies often included. If shopping for sets, it’s important to consider the age of the child, as newborns will sleep those early days away in onesies while toddlers may prefer leggings to dresses or skirts.
If opting for baby grows or onesies experiment with colour, as children pick up on them from an early age. Also bear in mind the time of year when buying, as while a long sleeved garment would be perfect for winter, tots can get overheated wearing them in the summer.
When it comes to footwear, booties are ideal for baby girls because they’re comfy and usually cheap to buy compared to trainers that can be expensive. This raises another factor: age. Babies grow so fast and expensive trainers are unlikely to fit them for long, as little feet get bigger quickly. Laces should be avoided until tots are ready to learn to tie them, and sparkly garments with sequins, fluff or fur may look fun but can cause a choke hazard.
Little girls will look great in this gorgeous three-piece baby girls' clothing set that comes with a pretty tea dress, yellow cardigan and white ballet pumps. Flowers are the theme with daisies featured on the dress itself and little white flowers on the toes of the shoes. The cardigan comes complete with poppers and the shoes with a white strap to ensure both security and comfort is key. The dress is sleeveless made from a soft 100 percent cotton and is machine washable. The coordinating outfit can be worn at most occasions as both formal and casual wear with a mixture of other colour and print options available.
Fairy tales come to mind with this pretty French smocking for little girls that comes in pink or mint with an intricate design and Peter Pan collar. Dainty roses decorate the smocking, which is machine washable but to be tumble-dried on a low heat. The garment has an old-fashioned style and is hand-stitched. Snap closures feature between the legs and buttons at the back of the neck aim to make dressing baby easy. The lightweight fabric keeps baby cool but comfy, and although the garment is beautiful, it is not cheap.
This four-piece baby girls' set with a touch of style has a bodysuit, top, hairband and hat – it would make for a cute gift for girls aged six months and upwards. The floral design with printed romper and pants are suitable for a pageant, party, wedding or birthday. The design is value for money and is 100 percent cotton and machine washable, with 21 other styles and prints to choose from. The headband comes fitted with a bow that cannot be detached causing a choking hazard. Soft, comfortable and loose fitting, the garment as a whole can be worn to both casual and formal events.
Active little girls can feel inspired in the fashionably pink pull-on tracksuit and matching headband. For ages 18-24 months and upwards, the three-piece top, trousers and hairband set for girls who run the world is made from 70 percent polyester and 30 percent rayon. Sparkly camouflage bottoms have an elastic waist and there are multiple colours and prints available for mums, dads and daughters to choose from. The jersey has a cut-out back with thin and soft material for summertime, complimented by its three-quarter length joggers. A fun and stylish edition to any sporty little girls' colourful wardrobe.
Tots can be the talk of the town in these uber-cool unicorn shoes with an adjustable squeaker that turns on and off with the flick of a switch. Colourful with high tops and a breathable fabric, babies can also make friends with the two cute unicorn characters protecting their tiny toes at the front of their jazzy shoes. The shoes have a comfortable and roomy fit to prevent rubbing and a hook-and-loop velcro for tots who have not yet mastered the art of tying their laces. The high top provides support to the ankle without restricting it. Makers Ikiki have four different kids' characters to pick from.
