Who said kidswear doesn't follow trends? From slippers and socks to backpacks and booties, unicorns are the latest thing to hit children's fashion and they're absolutely magic.  

11 pieces of unicorn-inspired kids fashion:

JoJo Maman Bebe’s baby leggings are the stuff of legend anyway but now little crawlers can shuffle around with a unicorn motif on their behind. Helpfully, the gusset has been created so it’s extra roomy and ideal for slipping over nappies on cold days.

Made for flying off on an adventure, this brushed-cotton day dress has a delightful rainbow-haired unicorn design. Putting aside the fantastical print, it also boasts full-length sleeves, handy pockets and elasticated cuffs, making it a sensible option too.

Keep their little hooves toasty and warm with these machine-washable unicorn slippers. Complete with a silver horn and blue mane, kids will love galloping around, especially as this footwear comes with a grip sole to prevent any slip-ups.

The perfect party plus one? This unicorn dress. An elegant print combines with a full tulle underskirt and glittering threads to create a frock that’s just made to have fun in.

You can’t take a unicorn to school, but you can take a unicorn backpack. This multi-coloured bag might look pretty with a 3D horn and ears, but it’s also very practical thanks to water bottle holders and adjustable straps that ensure they have a comfortable ride.

The subtle way to do the unicorn trend? On their socks. Whether they go for an all-over print, a unicorn head design or just plain stripes, these cosy knee-highs will have their look soaring in no time.

Hand-crocheted from the softest cotton, these adorable baby booties are as rare and exquisite as the unicorn itself. With gold horns, pink and white manes and smiling faces, they make the perfect gift for a newborn.

A more grown-up take on the unicorn trend, this stylish eyelash knit looks great with denim, plus a shimmery thread and sequinned eyes means the unicorn motif really does sparkle and shine.

Bring a bit of magic to bedtimes with this strokably-soft unicorn bathrobe. A horn for a hood, a fuzzy pink mane and star print make this a real favourite to snuggle up with before flying off to the land of nod.   

Look closely and you’ll see this unicorn sweatshirt has a few festive details: reindeer antlers, a holly-bud red hue and a bit of sparkle. It works as a Christmas jumper in December but it will keep them warm and on-trend all year round.

Little ones will have no trouble trotting around in this unicorn hat – a button fastening under the chin ensures it stays on whatever they get up to. Plus, there’s a fleece lining and ear flaps to keep them nice and cosy.
