Baby Skinny Jeans

September 2nd, 2010 by Rose DesRochers · 7 Comments

If you thought Heelarious- high heel shoes for babies were wrong then wait to I tell you about this next product for babies. ( I know my title gave it away.)

In my post ‘Provocative Fashion Trends and Teens‘ I commented that “If you have a teen daughter in high school, her back-to-school shopping list may contain a pair of skinny jeans.”

Well apparently teens are not he only one wearing skinny jeans. Get ready for the next trend: skinny jeans for babies. ( I guess these have been around for awhile now.)

Skinny jeans on a 2-year-old isn’t cute.

“Ava Lane, a smiley two-year-old who lives in Deland, Fla., has four pairs of skinny jeans. She received the first pair as a gift, says mom Christina Lane, who thought they looked so cute she bought more.”

Mini skinny

Gap, is selling skinny jeans for babies as small as zero to three months old. According to an article Do These Jeans Make My Diaper Look Big, ” skinny styles now make up 40% of its jeans offering for infant and toddler girls and 70% for girls at the kids division.”

Why are parents sliding their little ones into skinny jeans?

Why are they making clothing for little kids that mimic what adults wear? I’m guessing it is because some mothers wish to create a mini them. Well that ‘mini-me mentality’ is getting out of hand here and the long term effect on girls is damaging.

What do you think of skinny jeans for babies and toddlers? Are they harmless, and cute or troubling?

Would you or have you bought skinny jeans for your baby or toddler?

In 2007 one blogger was so appalled at skinny jeans for babies that she wrote a letter to Gap. Open letter to Gap.

    The skinny jeans are sometimes cute, but the actual practice is troubling.

    I want my kids to be kids. There will be plenty of time for them to be big people. And I certainly don’t want my daughter to dress in anything that isn’t appropriate for her age.

    I guess I don’t see much difference between “skinny jeans” for babies/toddlers and leggings..except the price tag. Both hug the diaper and legs in a very out-of-proportion way. The more troubling aspect is if fashionista mom is trying to create a mini-me with her baby by dressing her up in adult style clothing.

    I see nothing wrong w/ skinny jeans for kids. I know one thing they definitely look better when a baby has cute little boots on instead of looking a mess w/ their jeans all jacked up. And I myself personally do not like them on me so I’m not doind a mimic n want my daughter to be me.
