We have all varieties of blues for baby boys and pink for the little girls. However, this commonly accepted color scheme wasn’t always the case throughout history!
In fact, the early twentieth century birthed a slew of the opposite of what we consider gender colors today. Ladies’ Home Journal published an article in 1918 saying that the rules were for boys to wear pink while girls sported blue. The logic was that pink was a stronger color while blue was more delicate and dainty. At this point in society, it was well accepted that pink was masculine while blue represented femininity. This social norm was in place until the 1940s. The baby boomers saw the beginning of today’s gender color combinations. Throughout history, the clothing trends for both genders depended on how clothing gurus understood the trends of shoppers at any given point. Experts say that these clothing manufacturers could have easily flipped the roles, which would drastically change today’s rigid gender fashion norms.
Today’s society is set on classifying a baby’s gender on site. As it turns out, our florist shop has dozens of flower arrangements that can fit any situation. If you’re looking for "manly” blues and "dainty” pinks, we have amazing bouquets that will certainly celebrate a new family member’s arrival. For those looking for other color options, worry you not!
