Are you one of those parents that would always dress their newborn boys in cowboy, sailor, or construction outfits if possible? After all, during the infancy stage your child is too young to really fuss, fight, or have their own opinion, right? In reality, that’s only kind of true. The best baby boy clothes will be as functional as they are fashionable.

Although it is infectiously fun to spend hours curating one-of-a-kind outfits, it’s also a good idea to have a set of staple items that are comfortable and stylish for your newborn. 

This article has our list of top picks for cute newborn baby boy clothes in 2023, including matching sweat sets, adorable boat shoes, and woven overalls.

Keep it Simple With Sweatpants and Sweatshirts

When you’ve got an infant that can be irritated by so many different things, you want to make sure that they’re comfortable, unrestricted, and kept warm all day. Many parents continue to love the sweatshirt and pant combo and now there are almost unlimited varieties of these “sweat sets” that include both formal and casual styles. Whether you’re mixing and matching, or looking for the perfect pair, keeping a few of these options in your baby’s dresser will always come in handy. The Saturday Pants from Livly Baby are a great choice for use with a solid color sweater, a basic onesie, or a classically cool cardigan. Available in 3 different colors, the Saturday pants are actually a great choice for every day of the week, making them a top option for cute newborn baby boy clothes on your list.

You Can’t Go Wrong with Blue, Black and Gray

Whether this is your first or your fourth baby, you’ll quickly be reminded of how fast babies blow through their clean clothes. Diaper mishaps, messy eating, spit ups, and a thousand other little accidents will constantly be soiling your baby’s attire. Sticking to simple colors that are still in style is the best way to make sure that you can grab just about any piece of clothing and have it match what your child is already wearing. Blue, black, and gray are great colors for babies because they’re not overstimulating, they match nicely with other clothing colors, and they look great against all skin tones and hair colors. 

This gray long knit romper from Paz Rodriguez is a good example of a simple design that’s understated but still remarkably sophisticated for a newborn outfit. The neutral color and subtle textural variances truly make this knit stand out. Paz Rodriguez also makes a similar knit pant set that’s ideal for hanging around the house or dressing up for a special occasion. The contrasting color and defined style of the collar give this unique piece a sense of distinction. 

Fashionable Base Garments

While it’s true that long and short-sleeve onesies never really go out of style, some makers of cute baby boy clothes have added fashionable touches to these dependable base garments. For example, the long sleeve cross body suit from Nilo has some simple features that allow it to work well underneath other clothing or as a standalone top. Rather than buttoning straight across the front, this top crosses over the front of your baby and snaps along the side and underneath the diaper area. The angled fabric with a detailed edge on the front of the top also makes it feel a bit dressier.

Another one of the best baby boy clothes designs from Nilo baby is their basic footie. This long sleeve onesie-style garment is made from incredibly soft cotton and features snap closures instead of buttons. There’s nothing more frustrating than fumbling with buttons while your baby is fussing, especially in a dark room!

More Taper, Less Tampering 

You’ve definitely seen the rising trend of slimmer pants for boys and men. This trend is also big for newborn baby boy clothes. Plus, the tapered style of pants are also helpful for tykes that are trying to crawl and sit up. Slimmer pants don’t get in the way of our little one’s movements in the same way that bulkier or wider cuts do. 

We’re Not Over Overalls

These woven overalls from Paz Rodriguez are an iconic outfit for any baby boy. The soft fabric and easy-to-work-with neutral color will easily make these overalls a mainstay for any season and style.

Shoes and Accessories

What better way to add some fashionable flair to some of the best baby boy clothes than with booties or shoes? Even if your child isn’t walking yet they can still benefit from and show off a few stylish pairs of shoes. These navy blue crochet booties from Jefferies Socks are an almost impossibly cute option for keeping your baby boy’s feet warm no matter the weather. Made lovingly by hand, these booties are 100% cotton for soft snuggling in the crib, traveling in the car, or cuddling on the couch.

For shoes that are better suited to outdoor wear but still on-trend, you can’t go wrong with versatile white and navy deck shoes. Your little man will be prepared for any situation with stretchable shoe laces and a more durable leather sole.

Last but certainly not least, these leather loafers are the best way to dress to impress! These leather shoes are the perfect balance of comfort and style for a casual or formal setting. The dark brown color goes so well with denim, khakis, and tons of other styles and colors.

Patterns are Still Preferred

If you want to fill up your closet with cute newborn baby boy clothes, look for items with simple designs and clean patterns, like these footies with printed eyes from Nilo Baby. The age of the colorful, whacky printed t-shirts is over. Remember, floral or other plant themes can be for boys, too.

What about Swimwear?

During the long summer months you’re going to want cute newborn baby boy clothes that include a dependable swimsuit, hat, and swim diaper. More and more parents are opting to use swimshirts (rash guards) because they’re highly protective both from scratches and cuts and they’re effective at keeping the sun off of highly sensitive skin. If you’re planning to hit the beach or pool, don’t forget a little pair of sunglasses!
