When it comes to baby fashion, the words “gender neutral” are code for “subtle pea green” (nothing to envy about that).
Make the case for simple white instead. To wit: Oeuf’s new baby layette.
The modern kiddie brand — known for clean lines and eco-conscious design — delivers a selection of baby basics that lives up to its reputation. The entire collection — from beanies to blankets — is made under fair trade conditions in certified organic Peruvian cotton.
Items come in sizes 3 to 24 months and include kimono-style onesies and tees, jumpers with and without feet, long- and short-sleeve tees, pants, and ruffled diaper covers. No need to fear baby blowouts; nothing takes a splash of bleach quite like an all-white wardrobe.
Perfect for your blank canvas.
Available online at oeufnyc.com, $12-$56.
