TREND ALERT: 3 New Adult Collections by Children’s Companies


Typically we see adult clothing companies shrinking down their designs for the lucrative children’s market (a la J.Crew, H&M, Gucci, etc.), but there’s been a recent trend of children’s companies expanding their collections to now include adults.

In fact, there are three new adult lines from popular children’s companies being introduced in early 2013!

It’s not too surprising, right? How many times have you heard a parent say, “I wish they had this in my size,” whether they were referring to a soft swaddle blanket or a stylish little dress? Apparently the children’s companies were listening and taking notes.

Check out which brands are now expanding to include us big people:

  • Aden & Anais Daydream Blanket 1 of 6
    Aden & Anais Daydream Blanket
    I clearly wasn't the only parent tweeting aden & anais to puh-leeeze make an adult-sized muslin blanket, because my dreams are now a reality with their (appropriately named) Daydream Blanket. Made from the same cotton muslin material as our baby's swaddle, but for adults.

    And word is (from the New York Times) they're working on an adult-size muslin bedding line! YES!

    Buy from Aden & Anais, $125
  • Pink Chicken: Women 2 of 6
    Pink Chicken: Women
    Pink Chicken — a popular girls' clothing line — released their first full women's collection this month. It has that boho-chic style that Pink Chicken fans would expect, and in a gorgeous variety of options.
