Bling! Bling! Bling! Fashion is everything! Many people love following fashion trends. Many people follow their favorite fashion trend sites such as Womens Wear Daily, Vogue, and many more. We also see trends happening on social media sites. For example, I see all name brands and clever outfits right from my phone on Instagram and Pintrest. Recently there as been a new trend out in the fashion world! No it is not your everyday new designer handbag, and it is not a new trend on how to do your make-up!
This trend is only about two feet tall and might also call you Mom or Dad. Can you guess? Yes, that’s it! The new trend seems to be our children. Now I know you are asking yourself how is this a new trend. Why is everybody thinking this is a new trend we bring our kid everywhere we go, I do not get it! Let me explain!
Kids have always been dressing the best they can; I mean they are just kids, but lately parents have been dressing kids in over the top outfits. People have been dressing kids in high fashion styles to make their kid stand out or to make their child match their outfit of the day.
One well-known celebrity that does this is Kim Kardashian. Kim dresses her daughter North West in clothes that are designed just to match her loving Mommy.
“Kim has reportedly hired a personal tailor to make sure the baby’s wardrobe matches Mommy’s.”
Kim is not the only one who has their child dressing in high fashion clothes, but other celebrities as well are dressing their kids in these kinds of clothes. You see it all over for example another couple that does this is Beyoncé and Blue Ivy. It seems to be that Mommy’s and their kids are the new statement in the fashion world. Having a fashionable child is a lot better than having a purse now a day.
As stated in the article “Understanding Media and Culture: An Introduction to Mass Communication, v. 1.0 ” by Jack Lule .
“Historically, popular culture has been closely associated with mass media that introduce and encourage the adoption of certain trends. We can see these media as “tastemakers”—people or institutions that shape the way others think, eat, listen, drink, dress and more.”
Photographers are taking pictures of the celebrities and the kids, making it easy for everybody to see these tastemakers! The trend is causing many people over all social networks to take pictures of their own little trend setters! Everyday Mommy’s are following this movement by posting their own pictures on sites such as Instagram!
Now if you ask me I love the fact that the parents now are giving so much time and money to make sure that their kid looks their very best. Now do not get me wrong I am not saying that people should or should not do this, I just personally do not think it is all that easy to do. The average person cannot pay for new outfits all the time! The child is always growing needing new clothes and just everyday expenses come with a cost! Bling, bling, bling babies seem to be the new “it” thing!
