15 Fashionable Need-to-Have Baby Gear Items and Accessories For 2014

Wondering what the style forecast for 2014 is? Heads up, y'all, 'cause we're seeing purple — and lots of it! A few weeks back PANTONE announced their 2014 Color of the Year (it's Radiant Orchid!) and though it took a minute, baby gear retailers and manufacturers are now offering moms and dads everything they'd ever dreamed in shades of purple. Here's what the Color Gods had to say about the color, "Radiant Orchid blooms with confidence and magical warmth that intrigues the eye and sparks the imagination. It is an expressive, creative and embracing purple — one that draws you in with its beguiling charm. A captivating harmony of fuchsia, purple and pink undertones, Radiant Orchid emanates great joy, love and health." Here's to health, joy, love and a hell of a lot of purple!
