Paolettis journey through the history of childrens clothing began when she posed the question, When did we start dressing girls in pink and boys in blue?

To uncover the answer, she looks at advertising, catalogs, dolls, baby books, mommy blogs and discussion forums, and other popular media to examine the surprising shifts in attitudes toward color as a mark of gender in American childrens clothing. She chronicles the decline of the white dress for both boys and girls, the introduction of rompers in the early 20th century, the gendering of pink and blue, the resurgence of unisex fashions, and the origins of todays highly gender-specific baby and toddler clothing.
