Dressing your little princess can be so fun! Once your daughter reaches 12 months old, there’s a whole new world of styles and trends to discover together. 

Whether it's special occasion dresses or comfy bedtime sleepwear, PixieLane has the most adorable outfits for your sweet angel.

What Clothes Will My 12-Month-Old Love?

Your 12-month-old is old enough to start getting excited about new purchases and essentials. It’s one of the great joys of parenthood to see your children develop their own sense of style and to help guide them towards trendy, functional outfits. 

When shopping for your 12-month-old, there are a few essentials to keep in mind. Comfort and fashion coexist in these wardrobe must-haves, like jumpsuits, rompers, matching sets, and leggings.


A sophisticated step-up from infant onesies, jumpsuits provide the same easy, one-piece dressing experience alongside a fun fashion statement. Easy on-off clothing will make diaper changing much easier, and they’ll help make it easier for your little princess to start undressing herself at around 18 months.

If you want to add baby-friendly accessories, a cute pair of socks or matching bibs can help create a perfect look.


Similar to jumpsuits, baby rompers provide the same comfort and convenience as a jumpsuit while helping to keep your baby cool on those hot summer days.

The best part about dressing your little girl in a romper is that no matter the color, pattern, or graphic, she’ll always look absolutely adorable. Plus, this look can easily transition to cooler summer nights with simple jackets or sweaters. Light layers are essential for baby clothing since it’s important to make sure your baby is never too hot or too cold.

Matching Harem Sets

When it comes to effortless fashion, matching sets are where it’s at. You can dress your baby in the cutest shirt with matching pants and immediately have a new go-to look for your little princess. Best of all, many of these sets are mix-and-matchable, meaning you can create cohesive outfits effortlessly.

With shirts that have fun graphics and the pants to match, your baby will be ready to take on the day looking her cutest.

Legging Sets

Leggings are comfortable, go with everything, and look absolutely adorable on a little girl. 

Pair them with a dress, that perfect tee, and the cutest accessories for an easy everyday outfit, or find leggings with festive patterns, colors, and fun prints for a special occasion look to remember. 

What Features Should I Look for in 12-Month-Old Clothes?

For newborns, infants, and toddlers, cozy fashion is very important. While you always want your baby to be stylish, ensuring their comfort and safety is your first priority.

Some go-to features for baby clothes include:

  • Clothing with snaps or zippers for easy dressing and undressing
  • Clothing that is stretchy and not too tight
  • Clothing that is soft and comfortable
  • Clothing that keeps your baby in the most comfortable and safe temperatures every season

Of course, you can find popular 12-month-old trends that keep all of these features in mind while helping your little princess stay stylish with matching accessories and Mommy and Me outfits.


Look for comfortable clothes when dressing a 12-month-old. When selecting the right baby clothing, you need clothes that are not too tight. Tight clothes can create discomfort and even prevent optimal circulation. You’ll also need to find baby clothes that are suited for each season.

Make sure your baby’s hands and feet are properly covered during the colder months— socks and mittens are important to keep your little sprout warm. Hats are also a must-have, no matter the time of year. 


The softer the clothes, the better your little princess will feel. Selecting soft clothing made from the right fabrics is critical in 12-month-old wardrobes. 

Some of the most common, softest fabrics used in baby clothes are blends. A combination of spandex, nylon, cotton, and polyester is perfect when outfitting your growing big kid. 

Matching Accessories

A super fun feature of dressing your little girl is finding the right accessories for your new favorite outfits. 

Of course, your 12-month-old is still too young for necklaces or ribbons that she could get tangled up in, but there are plenty of baby-safe accessories you can use to take your looks to the next level. For example, pairing a cute baby dress with a matching headband is one of the most precious and iconic baby girl fashion looks. 

Mommy and Me Clothes

Mommy and Me clothes make such a sweet and adorable statement. You and your little princess can find the sweetest matching dresses, jumpsuits, tees, and leggings to complete your Mommy and Me look. 

Another great thing about mommy and me fashion is that you and your little girl get to create memories, photograph the day, and have fun mommy and me play dates that support the mother-daughter bond. There are few things more important in your little one’s life than healthy bonding with a parent to promote positive attachment and development. 

Try Mommy and Me fashion as a way to bond with your baby and create your new favorite memories or traditions.
