Baby K by Myleene Klass

Baby K Stripe Dress with Knickers Review


When you have a girl everyone expects you to dress them in pretty pink dresses and frilly bows. Willow has her fair share of 'feminine' outfits but we are very big on the gender neutral upbringing in the Tattooed Tealady household and so our wardrobe is a very colourful and varied one.

On a recent visit to Mothercare in Nottingham I spotted the Baby K range, which has been designed by Myleene Klass. I was instantly drawn in by the beautiful designs and outfits, all of which had a very definite black and white theme with the most subtle splashes of bold yellow. There's a fantastic mix of clothes for girls and boys, but also a lovely variety of in-the-middle gender neutral options too. It's one of the most beautiful gender neutral ranges I have come across and I am so impressed with the range as a whole, which is unique to any other I have come across so far as a new mama

I adore Willow in black and the Baby K range is right up our street, I couldn't resist picking her up a couple of outfits for the summer. Funnily enjoy black is the colour I get the most comments on when I buy something black for Willow or dress her in something black. Remarks of how unsuitable it is for a baby, especially a girl, and that it's cruel. I'm big on black clothing and I grew up wearing mostly black. Colour has no gender and I have no worries popping my little one in black clothing, girl or not. Plus, when the clothes are this beautiful, who could resist?!

I picked up two outfits, plus a headband of the same black and white stripe design (which I found impossible to photograph, which explains why it isn't featured!). The entire range has a very luxe look to it yet the prices are exceptionally fair and would fit into most budgets, whether you're someone that can afford the entire range or looking for a one-off piece for a special occasion coming up, nothing is extortionate, which I find with a lot of baby clothing with differs from the norm.

The more purse-friendly of the two outfits I picked up is the Baby K Black and White Stripe Romper (£12) which is nice and light and will be the most perfect pick for a hot summers day. I love the bright yellow splash of colour on the arms and I know Willow is going to look super cute in this. A little more pricey but well worth the pennies, the second outfit I choose was the absolutely beautiful Baby K Stripe Dress with Knickers (£16). I mean honestly, did you ever see anything more gorgeous than this? I think I may have to have a cheeky photoshoot day with Willow the first time she wears this! It has a lovely underlayer and matching frill knickers, the perfect dress for the perfect little girl.

I am really in love with this range and would happily buy every single piece in different sizes if I could, so that she always has something as beautiful as the pieces in the Baby K range. I'm secretly hoping some of them end up in the next Mothercare sale, which is always full to the brim with incredible bargains!

Do you dress your little ones in black?

  5. I didn't often dress my boys in black but, given how much high-contrast black and which is pushed as being great for babies to look at, I can only imagine Willow will be much more stimulated by these outfits than by boring pink!

  7. I don't have children & I doubt it will ever happen but if I do become a mother then I would have no problem dressing my kids in black regardless of their gender. I would like to take a gender neutral approach to things as I don't personally think colours should be gendered. This also applies to toys, I would never want to limit my kids imagination by telling them that they can't play with a certain toy because it's not for their gender. I get so angry when I see other people do this whether it's toys or clothes.. it takes a lot for me to not say anything.

    This is such a great post. The romper is adorable & I'm sure Willow will look lovely in it. (:

    1. Thanks so much Ash, really glad you liked my post! I definitely agree, we shouldn't push gender stereotypes on anyone, regardless of age. It's 2016, time for the stereotypes to go! xo

  9. This is so gorgeous! Ada has been in a lot of navy blue but surprisingly no black as of yet, I absolutely love the little dress with knickers though.
