20 gender-neutral clothing brands for babies and kids

Kids’ clothes have traditionally fallen into gendered buckets, with pink things and tutus in the girl’s section and blue pieces with trucks and dinosaurs in the boy’s section. But now that we’ve stopped thinking of gender as binary, it’s about time the clothes followed suit. Thankfully, not only are popular retailers creating unisex collections, but we’re also seeing entire gender-neutral brands pop up—and we’re so here for it.

Instead of reinforcing dated gender stereotypes, these brands have chosen to put their focus on creating high-quality and cozy staples that are made sustainably. And they still have tons of personality, from bright colours to bold prints to fun imagery that includes animals, nature and food. Kids are bound to love them, no matter where they fall on the gender spectrum.

Here are our favourite gender-neutral clothing brands for babies and kids.
