From page boy outfits to flower girl dresses, discover the latest trends in childrenswear for weddings
Luxury childrenswear brand La Coqueta Kids has revealed its top trend predicitons for 2022 and beyond. Analysing various data sets, the brand pin-pointed the most prevalent and emerging looks for page boys and flower girls.
Celia Muñoz, founder and creative director at La Coqueta Kids, comments: “Strict social distancing rules caused mass disruption to the wedding industry in both 2020 and 2021, causing many nuptials to be simplified or pushed back to 2022. With this in mind, we analysed various data points to discover the next big wedding outfit trends for children in 2022.
“As Google Autocomplete suggestions are predicted based on ‘factors like popularity and freshness’, we started there to see which colours and styles are currently trending, before cross-referencing this with our internal sales data for our ‘special occasion’ category from December 2018 to now."
While luxe neutrals such as white, ivory, gold, champagne, camel and coffee brown continue to grow in popularity, colour will always play a pivotal role in children's wedding wear. However, the La Coqueta Kids team predict a role reversal in stereotypical gender colour choices with flower girls dressed in blue and page boys wearing pink.
White, navy, burgundy, champagne and coffee brown were cited as the most trend-led colour choices for girls, amid styles such as princess dresses, tutu skirts and ballerina slippers. Traditional colours of grey, navy and other shades of blue are ever popular among boys. Sage green was also found to be an increasingly popular colour, and preferred styles for boys include three-piece suits or shorts, braces and bowties.
Prints are also focal, with florals a firm favourite for spring/summer weddings and tartan a surfacing trend for autumn-winter.
