Search gender neutral baby clothes and you’ll find lots of links for Carter’s, Kohl’s, and GAP – all directing you to pages of grey and white cotton separates. A few hits for Macy’s and JCPenney will probably mixed in the bunch too.
And those brands offer some great options that are not gender-specific, but getting all grey, white, and yellow can be a bit bland and unexciting.
You can get practical, unisex looks in a full range of stylish options from modern and minimalist to colorful and whimsical.
Gender Neutral Baby Clothes Looks Like Clothing for Modern Humans
It’s not all tiny grey elephants and alphabet prints. You can find unisex clothing in neutral, minimal colors or in rich, saturated hues. There are plenty of upscale and niche kids’ clothing brands offering gender neutral baby clothes. It’s on-trend and it also is easier (cheaper) to produce and manage less inventory.
30 GENDER NEUTRAL BABY CLOTHES AND CHILDREN’S CLOTHES BRANDS
Garment prices can vary greatly from brand to brand, or even within one brand. With Mini Rodini, for example, you can commonly find end-of-season markdowns for $15 to $25. But their brand new onesies go for $40+ and you can find kidswear north of $200.
Here’s a rough key to price markers:
- $: Most items are $5 to $14
- $$: Most items are $15 – $49
- $$$: Most items are $50 – $99
1 | Fin & Vince | Price Range $$ – $$$
Fin & Vince is my new favorite brand for my son, Henry. In fact, I’m obsessed with the label. The clothing is thick, soft, heavy, high quality, and washes like a dream. Fin and Vince clothing is made for durable adventure and looks cute and cozy all day long. It’s retro classic styles with contemporary appeal.
>>> Read more about Fin and Vince and what makes the brand so popular.
The color palette is lots of neutral and nature-inspired colors, with plenty of chestnuts, browns, mustards, emeralds, and cobalts. Fin & Vince works with everything.
Their colors “go” with Hanna Andersson and Mini Boden (rainbow colorful brands). And they also “go” with Quincy Mae, Soor Ploom, Gus + Steel, Tocoto Vintage, Jamie Kay, and other more natural-hued clothing lines.
Score deals during end-of-season clearance events and for major sales holidays, like Memorial Day, Labor Day, or Black Friday. There is an outlet section of the website that is sometimes open to shoppers with deals starting at $10 or less. In general, you should expect to shell out $28 to $70 per piece. And it’s worth the money.

5 | Mini Rodini | Price Range: $$-$$$
Mini Rodini is a high-end baby and kids brand that sells ethical and sustainable clothes that are modern, playful, and a little bit cheeky. The hand-drawn prints are fun and colorful without appearing juvenile. People who like whimsy with a touch of quirk love the brand. It’s spendy, but end-of-season markdowns are a great time to find deals. (Like $42 sleepers instead of $70 sleepers. But you can re-sell that sleeper after for $30.)

Bobo Choses is a playful and colorful Spanish brand. Its Mediterranean heritage is everywhere. It’s reflected in the textiles, cuts, patterns, and colors. It has a playful, joyful feel.

SHEIN Baby offers cute and affordable baby clothing. As a fast fashion brand, they have thousands of baby garments and accessories available in all styles and sizes. I don’t love fast fashion, but you can find on-trend garments for $5 vs $55 there. I’ve bought there sparingly (read my review) and made sure that my kids actually wore the garments vs tossing them into a landfill of under-worn clothes. The quality is all over the place, but they do have some nice things that you can get a lot of wear out of. Make sure to read the reviews and look over the pictures carefully.

When my youngest was an infant, Little Road Co was my absolute favorite. Little Road Co makes comfy and adorable clothing that babies and children love to wear – and I never want to take off.

24 | Little Sleepies
Little Sleepies sells cozy bamboo sleepwear for babies (and children and grown-ups). They have some of the best prints. I usually don’t like loud, juvenile prints. But Little Sleepies prints are artistic and whimsical with hand-drawn flair. I love their Luna Neutral print (which is one of their signature designs) and limited edition Snug as a Bug.
25 | Milkbarn
Milkbarn Baby is a nostalgic brand that makes adorable rustic-urban baby clothing. Their prints are so unique. My favorite is brown stallions on peach – and I’m not even a horse person.

GENDER NEUTRAL BABY CLOTHES SELL BETTER
You may not be thinking about your baby clothing’s after-life now, but it’s coming sooner than you think. If you buy quality baby clothes, you can resell them after for up to 50-cents on the dollar. And gender neutral baby clothes sell more easily and for more money than gender-specific garments.
Buying and selling used clothing for kids is big business. For many moms, buying used clothes and consigning their kids’ used clothing is more of a leisure-time activity than an exercise in frugality. Facebook has hundreds of buy sell trade (BST) groups where moms buy and sell used clothes – often dozens of items per month. Many buyers actively search for rare or discontinued styles and prints. In many instances, a garment can fetch more used than it did brand-new and in-store.
