Ashleesimpson_15757619_max_cbbThe baby rumors have been swirling for months now, and while nothing’s been confirmed, Pete Wentz and Ashlee Simpson tied the knot on May 17, and a baby might not be far behind. Whether a baby comes soon or a little later, one thing we can be sure of is the role that tees, hoodies and jeans will play in any Simpson/Wentz collaboration. Especially with a dad like Pete, who was dubbed the “King of Hoodies” for his Clandestine Industries line of rocker-friendly clothing. So until Pete and Ashlee have time to design their own line of baby duds, here are our giggle picks for hot baby street wear.

Giggle_tellem_tiedye_hoodieWhether Baby Wentz is a girl or a boy, the fleece Tellem Hoodie is a must-have for cool evenings in Los Angeles (especially for the child of the King of Hoodies). With just a touch of tie-dye, it has a throwback style that’s still plenty modern, and just right for a relaxed rocker family.

Giggle_wagadugu_striped_hoodieFor warmer days, the short-sleeved Wagadugu Striped Hoodie supplies hoodie style without the cold-weather imperative. Like scarves with tees or UGG boots with shorts, it reminds us that there’s no need to limit fashion to a season.

Giggle_glug_tiger_teeNext up, any rocker baby needs a great graphic tee. One of our favorites (hold the sassy sayings that seem to crop up on too many toddler styles) is the Glug Tiger Tee. Killer graphics and an easy sense of style make it one of our most popular tees, and it comes in sizes for both babies and toddlers.

Just like any jeans loyalists, Ashlee and Pete will have to include at least one pair of fashion-forward jeans in their child’s starter set. We love (and think they will too) Levi’s distressed Faded Dark Jeans for toddlers. They’re the perfect bottom to go with all those hoodies and graphic tees, with just a splash of street-smart style.
