20 gender-neutral clothing brands for babies and children

Children’s clothing has traditionally fallen in gendered buckets, with pink things and tutus in the girls’ section and blue pieces with trucks and dinosaurs in the boys’ section. But now that we’ve stopped thinking about gender as binary, it was time for clothing to follow suit. Luckily, not only are popular retailers creating unisex collections, but we’re also seeing entire gender-neutral brands popping up, and we’re so here for it.

Instead of strengthening dated gender stereotypes, these brands have chosen to focus on creating comfortable, high-quality staples that are sustainably produced. And they always have a lot of personality, from bright colors and bold prints to fun images that include animals, nature and food. Children are bound to love them no matter where they are on the gender spectrum.

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