Oh, mama! Mixing cute and functional is no problem for little girls and their mamas when “Lillibands™” or “LilliWear™” is printed on their clothing tags…not that anyone needs to look at the tags, because the products speak for themselves! Lillibands and LilliWear are ingenious products created by a mother who has solved the daily dilemma of dressing a little girl and keeping her cute, clean, and comfortable for any occasion. That mother is Jen Newman. Using her appreciation of folk art, and passion for fashion and sewing as raw materials, Jen invented Lillibands, the headbands with an elastic underside that stay in place.
For several years now, many designers have taken the mod vibe from a trend to a well-established apparel category. Hip, edge-driven designs are at the forefront of fashion for the littlest customers, and while these kiddos are too young for a driver’s license or credit card, it doesn’t stop them from wearing fashion-forward apparel in the crib and to the playground! With tattoo-inspired graphics such as flaming guitars, toned-down colors and high-quality fabrics, trendy apparel from no added sugar, Pink Axle and Rock Star Baby makes an up-to-the minute, sophisticated statement.

Take a look at the wintery wild side for kids this season, with inspired themes that coat children as baby elephants, leopards, bears, seals, dogs, cats and more! Let the fun fur fly!
