Choosing Clothing Items for Your Child’s Casual Wardrobe



Most parents take pride in the way their children dress. It is common to pay special attention to your children's clothing. When shopping, you want to buy clothing items that can be used in variety of ways. Children are sometimes invited to special occasions or events that require dress shoes and dress clothes. More often than not, they will be wearing casual clothing. Read on to find out how to choose affordable and quality pieces for your child’s casual wardrobe.

Shoes
A nice pair of shoes can make a basic outfit look extraordinary. You want your child to outgrow shoes instead of wearing them out. Leather shoes are a good option to add to your child’s wardrobe. This material is durable and high quality. Leather shoes also go well with a dressy outfit.
Leather shoes can be found in a variety of styles, such as childrens leather boots. Leather ankle boots are popular among women and they also make this style for girls. An ankle boot can dress up your outfit. It can be worn with both casual and dressy outfits for a range of style.  Be sure to also include a good quality sneaker.  

Jacket
Every child should have a nice winter jacket to wear in cold temperatures. The jacket should fall along the thigh, which covers up most of the outfit. It should also be in a neutral color like a navy blue or black.  Having a lighter jacket on hand for cooler weather, like a windbreaker or zip up sweatshirt, is also a good idea.  Denim jackets are good casual wear.  Jackets can also be worn as a fashion statement.

Socks
Socks are another important component of a casual outfit. If your child is wearing an outfit that exposes the legs, then your child should be wearing a nice pair of socks. For example, a pair of ruffle socks would go good with dresses. On the other hand, a pair of white socks would pair well with oxford shoes and dress shorts for boys. You should also stock up on athletic socks for playground and sports.

Shirts and Blouses
For boys you more than likely are going to have t-shirts, but also a few polos and button up shirts.  Girls of course will also like t-shirts and polos, but they often like to include a few frilly and feminine blouses as well.

Pants, Skirts, Dresses
When purchasing these items, denim and corduroy both look nice and hold up to play.  Khaki is another good choice.  Obviously denim skirts are great and last well, but sometimes little girls want something a little more girly.  Make sure to add a few different types and styles.


Style allows your child to show their personal style when it comes to clothing. It depends on the type of look you are trying to achieve for your child. Be sure to allow your child's personality show through.  They don't need to have all their wants and wishes granted, but allow them to make some of the choices regarding color or style.  Some children may prefer patterns and designs, while others may prefer more subdued colors.  As long as they are dressed appropriately let them participate in the purchases. 

Thanks for stopping by!! See you soon!
