Empowering Kids Through Fashion

Empowering kids is something near and dear to my heart. That means raising strong, fierce girls who understand both how to stand up for themselves and the power of standing up for others. I want my kids to be as tender as they are tough, and the best way to do that is to empower them to make good choices and know that they’re worthy of everything that life has to offer and capable of handling whatever life throws at them.

That’s why I love the latest line from Piccolina. It’s devoted to empowering through fashion in a way I haven’t seen before. Piccolina is a new, mission-driven lifestyle brand dedicated to inspiring and empowering today’s youth to become tomorrow’s leaders and problem solvers.

Their Trailblazer tees highlight prominent women in history through beautifully illustrated portraits so young kids can sport their favorite idols such as Maya Angelou, Frida Kahlo, RBG, Malala, Amelia Earhart, and more. What I love about these pieces is that empowering kids and fashion are both the focus. So what you get are simple shirts with poppy, fun designs that are perfect for everyday wear and also tell a story. They make great statement pieces, and they actually give us parents an opportunity to open up a dialogue about why these women were so important to history in general and to women’s history specifically.

They have a wide variety of clothing from dresses and skirts to pajamas and accessories, and they all focus on patterns that empower kids like paleontology, construction, space exploration, and other themes you don’t often find for girls. I think that’s great because, while I love pink, I think girls deserve so much more than bows and classic “girly” colors and designs.

Their clothing is the perfect combination of classic fun and girl power, and I love it. If you have girls – or boys – who love history or just fun colors and prints, give Piccolina a look.
