    Oh I have a onsee you would love its black and says " Girls cant wear pink all the time" You really dont see a lot of black clothing for little ones I think it looks great on them.


    As far as clothes I hate basically anything that is too short, some of these shorts and skirts these girls wear these days are horrible no better than underwear. Any tops that are designed to show off the breasts. Stuff like that.

    For little kids and babies there isnt much I dont like. Maybe teletubbies

    eeek...teddy bears are just a breeding ground for dust mites (shudders).

    I dislike licenced clothing but my DD seems to get given a lot which she has to wear. I don't like baby clothes with buckles, hard studs and buttons as bub lays down all day it must hurt them.

    My kids have so much piratey clothes. They love them!

    They wear runners often, and all other kinds of shoes.

    They have some slogan clothes.

    I recently bought giant flower with headband for a friends girl (I have no girls) and she looks great in it.

    Definitely not picky on clothes- my boys choose a lot of their own, love op shopping for their clothes or just kmart/bigW etc.

    Only things I dislike are crocs and overalls.

    I despise anything that sexualises children. I once saw a little girl that would have been no more than 2 wearing a leopard print cop top and matching mini skirt with knee high black boots. Im also not a fan of bikini's for young girls either. If you have nothing to fill it up with it just looks awkward. I am not a large fan of pink and will avoid it if I have a girl for as long as possible. I will have to come to terms with it if said girl decides she loves it tho.
    I also dont really like thongs for the most part. I actually dont think they are very good for growing feet and are not at all practical when children are trying to run, ride bikes and climb. I would prefer runners or (shock!) crocs as the child doesnt have to work so hard to keep the shoes on the feet.
    I hate impractical clothes e.g. overalls without the snaps between the legs for babies in nappies, pants with buttons or that are too tight for toilet training kids and dresses/shorts that are long and baggy for crawling babies since they get caught in them and fall flat.

    I hate all that pretend makeup marketed to young kids and high heels are definately out. I also depised Bratz and similar and it annoys me that everything marketed to girls is pink. People say let the child make choices but marketing often doesnt give them much choice. I hate anything that teaches kids that thier acceptance hinges on thier appearance and that caring what other people think is everything.

    Wait but Bratz brought out that punk line which were actually kinda cute, and Emily the strange. Oh and that Veronica's punk range for little girls that target had was kind of cute too, some was a bit too slutty but some of the dresses were nice.
    Also pink is a great colour when used right. I agree there is too much girls clothes that are sickly pink but say a white shirt with pink stripes is cute (in fact I plan on dressing my son in some pink hehe).

    I hate bogan slogans. And Elmo/sesame street clothes. And wannabe sl.ut slogans/clothes. And clashing colours. And things that look dumb. And Dora the Explorer.
    Actually I hate most of the baby clothes sold at Kmart, Target and Big W that isn't plain onesies/t shirts. Even cotton on kids has some really bad ones (surprise surprise their adult/teen range can be really tacky though).

    I agree with a lot of these, but I'll add my current pet peeve: baby clothes with political slogans. My son can't find his hands yet, so I'm not sure that he's given his political affiliations much thought!

    Aside from the 'F*** OFF WE'RE FULL' style slogans, I quite like them. Political decisions should have more consideration for these babies future and these tees often serve as a reminder of that.

    I hate crocs, seriously they look ridiculous! Im also not a fan of clothing with characters on them. But DS is at the age where he has his favourite shows so if he wants something with a character he can have it.

    This exactly! Big flower headbands and denim on babies makes me cringe :/

    We're pretty easy going with our 2 boys. Jeans with joggers? Yep! Board shorts? Just about all the time! Skulls/pirates? As long as it's not bloody or the like go for it.

    I guess we're lucky as boys clothes, while somewhat limited in choice sometimes, is pretty standard.

    I agree with pp about overly revealing/provocative clothes for little girls though. I don't like the bikinis or bum bearing shorts. They are children!

    My one pet hate with little babies is pierced ears. I cannot stand it. Each to their own though.

    Basically as long as our 2 are covered and comfortable it's all good.
