It’s fun to select clothes for yourself and even more fun to select for a baby. Dressing a baby can be very exciting, especially if you are a first-time mom.
However, dressing a baby stylishly is far more challenging than picking out clothes for yourself. Your baby has to look amazing, but it is far more important for them to feel comfortable. There needs to be a perfect balance between style and comfort.
In the past, there wasn’t enough attention placed on designing clothes for babies. Over time, baby and toddler clothes have evolved. With so many options for cool toddler clothes, you can now give your baby a stylish look while keeping them comfortable.
Here are some tips on how to style your toddler.
Babies and their relationship to colors should be vibrant and bright. Play around with different color combinations to see which looks best on your baby.
While neutrals give a clean look, fun colors bring attraction. If you do not want to go overboard with bright colors, you can choose neutrals or pastels and give them a pop of color by adding a simple, colorful accessory to your toddler’s outfit to complete the look.
You can even go with neon and fluorescents if you want to go crazy with solid colors. Some different combinations that you can try when dressing your baby are:
- Navy blue with orange
- Purple with yellow
- Red and green
- Sky blue and orange
- Neon yellow and black
- Lavender with pink
The options are endless.
Dress your baby in a simple outfit such as a onesie or a dress with leggings, but play around with different patterns. With so many different pattern options, you can dress your toddler in a stylish way by pairing solids with patterns.
You can make your toddler stand out in a crowd by choosing a pretty floral pattern or an adorable animal print – or by keeping it classic and going with stripes or a check print.
A cute top paired with a polka-dotted skirt can make your princesses look stylish yet comfortable. Dress your babies in patterned onesies, from stars to zigzags to rainbows, and play around with whatever suits your baby’s style. Patterns are the easiest way to dress a baby for any occasion.
One more way to style your toddler is to add different layers. While adding a layer of clothing can also protect your baby from cold, it can also create the perfect classy style, fit for any occasion.
Here are some ideas on how you can add layers to enhance your toddler’s simple outfit:
- Pair a onesie with a tutu
- Add a cardigan over a frock
- Pair a sleeveless T-shirt with a button-down shirt
- Add a classic denim jacket over a plain top
- Put on leggings under a jumper
The details make any outfit complete. Even if your baby’s dress is simple, go for outfits that focus on the little details. These little details go a long way when putting together an outfit for your toddler.
Simple ruffles on the sleeves of a dress can make it look prettier. A simple top with a bow detail can make a casual outfit stand out.
Furthermore, the pocket detail on a simple shirt can make it look classy. From swoon-worthy basics to dressed-up outfits, focusing on these small details can even make a baby onesie look oh-so-cute.
With so much advancement in the fashion world for babies and toddlers, it is now easy to find tiny accessories to go with your baby’s outfit. The addition of an accessory will immediately change the whole look of an ensemble. A simple outfit can be transformed by a headband, making your baby girl look cute and adorable. You can add flavor to your baby girl’s outfit using ponies, clips, booties, and hats.
Not only can you boost your daughter’s outfit with accessories, but you can also use different items to style your baby boy’s attire. A belt and bow tie are essential to make any plain suit look amazing.
Depending on the weather, you can add a beanie or hat to compliment a baby’s outfit. You can even turn baby essentials into accessories; for instance, a cute bandana bib can look like a fun scarf over a onesie.
Although dressing your baby should be quick and easy, you can make it more fun by giving it some style. Some essential items in your baby’s wardrobe are leggings, onesies, sweaters, jumpers, hats, socks, and some accessories.
You can stylishly dress your baby by experimenting with these and thinking out of the box while keeping the above details in mind.
