Baby boy clothing can be worn by anyone, according to a new study.
Researchers at the University of Queensland have found that baby boys can wear them in public, and that the same can be said for other clothes, including t-shirts and sweatshirts.
“We think that, in general, baby boys do have a preference for wearing clothing that is appropriate for their age group,” lead researcher Dr Amy McLean said.
“In terms of what clothing can fit them, we found that boys, girls, and young adults were more likely to wear clothes that are appropriate for the age group.”
She said the study was not an attempt to predict whether certain clothing styles were more popular with boys than girls.
“It’s a bit of a chicken-and-egg thing,” she said.”[But] if you look at some of the research that’s been done on boys and girls and the trends that we’ve seen, boys tend to prefer things that have a more casual, more relaxed feel to them.”
That’s probably the type of clothing that we might want to try out on them.
“The study found that girls were more inclined to wear a casual look, whereas boys tend towards a more formal look.
Dr McLean says that as baby boys get older, their style preferences will change, and they may find themselves in a more structured environment, which may lead to more clothing choices for them.
Dr MacLean says parents and carers should be aware of what’s appropriate for young children and should make sure that their child is comfortable in the space that they are in.”
There’s really no magic formula, no one-size-fits-all formula for how much clothing to wear to their child,” she told ABC News.”
If we’re all going to be dressing in the same fashion, that’s going to make the process of trying to get clothes that fit them a lot easier.
