Fashion Meets Function


Beautiful fabric makes me dizzy; I can only assume it was new parent fatigue that left me with the bland (navy blue, beige) slings I purchased a couple of years back when Laurel was born. And with Laurel, the sling practically was my uniform during her first year; I deserved better trimmings.

ZoloWear celebrates stylish babywearing through their gorgeous collection of pouches (one loop of fabric that can be tightened with a single button and four buttonholes) and ring slings (rectangle of fabric threaded through two rings for adjustability and positioning versatility) in bright, modern cottons, luxurious silk brocades, and breathable Solarveil mesh for warm weather. For true hands-free walkabouts, pouches come with a d-ring for keys or a toy, the ring slings with a zippered pocket on the tail (which also can serve as an impromptu burp cloth or breastfeeding cover).

We especially love the modern, coordinate-with-any-outfit Jetson fabric (shown, ring sling $89.99; pouch $53.99), which features yummy blue and cream dots on chocolate stretch cotton sateen. These slings are so breathtaking that passersby might actually overlook your cute bundle of joy for a split second.
