Clothing Sets


Clothing set is a set of clothes –  a top and bottom (long or short).

These are quite comfortable for kids and can be worn all day long. A comfortable top paired with a smart bottom (shorts, skirts, jeans, trousers, capri, palazzos) looks fabulous and it gives comfort to small kids because of the soft fabric they are made of.

You can choose in terms of

  • material of top and bottom – denim, cotton, nylon, rayon, polyster
  • prints ( solid, checked, polka dots, printed, striped)
  • Top type (Shirt, Tshirt, Tunic, Coat)
  • Bottom type (Palazzos, Pajamas, trousers, Capris)


This is the most comfortable dress for mothers and babies, reason being the fabric it is made of. This is a one piece dress where the top and lower (short or long) are attached together so carrying a baby (small babies) is quite easy and they feel very cozy and comfortable in this.

One thing that you need to keep in mind when you are using rompers for your baby –  you have to keep your baby in diaper. As changing clothes mean that full body suit is to be changed if soiled.

Leggings or Tights

The colours and prints (flowers, polka dots, geometrical, stars etc.) look so beautiful that you can’t resist yourself from buying these leggings. Moreover they can be paired with any tees or tops.

And one thing which can’t be ignored is comfort. The material of most leggings are very soft and comfortable. So thsi is another comfortable option for everyday wear.

Sleep Wear

This is the most comfortable dress of the day. Sleep wear has now changed a lot from olden days.

The fabric is way softer and the prints and colours are cute and very child friendly.

Usually kids don’t like to change their clothes, it is the most unpleasant work for them. But with sleep wears with cute prints (trucks, cars, animals, cartoons, fairies) now that will not be the case. Mostly kids love wearing these prints,

So you can buy a sleep wear based on material and prints. Get ready to grab a print that your kid will love to wear.

Hope you found the list of variety of clothing options for girls useful. Now you can choose from the most comfortable or stylish baby girl dresses for your girl either via visiting the physical store or via online shopping.
