There are so many clothing brands out there in the UK and beyond offering great styles for the modern child, why not start early by not influencing your child with very feminine or masculine biased brands?
The trend for pink and blue segregated clothing in a shop, is finally on the way out.
There is more and more gender-free clothing and such brands offer more flexibility for parents and their offspring.
Mini Stylin” is an online retailer and has an “unisex” filter you can use whilst browsing their clothing. Their dungarees are a popular item and their founder Anjeli Patel says that they pride themselves on creating a new generation of style-conscious parents who can shop for unisex brands, alongside other pieces.

The last but not least brand to be mentioned are Indikidual who use hand drawn prints on their pieces. The founder created a unisex line as her daughter wasn’t interested in being girly but also was not a Tomboy. The collection was created to ‘suit her funny little personality’.
