Children are one of life’s biggest blessings. The moment you take a glance at your child, you know that you want to give them the best things in the world, and it includes choosing the best dressing styles for your little girl. But, it isn’t always easy to choose the best things for your little girl and save up money for other life responsibilities.
Having a little girl means that you probably want to play dress-up every time she goes out, and that doesn’t mean that you have to spend a tremendous amount of money to buy dresses for your girl. With some tips, tricks, and the right resources, you can turn your little doppelganger into a mini fashionista. Keep reading to know how…
1. Choosing the right colors will make or break an outfit
Colors are key when it comes to clothes. When dressed informally, you want your little girl to unleash her personality into colors and make her feel comfortable in developing her own style. Don’t keep dressing your little girl in a bland color palette. Instead, let her wear vibrant colors and patterns to make her outfits a little extra. There’s nothing that screams cute and vibrant more than mini-patterned dresses.
2. Keep in mind the comfort of the clothing
Although dressing up your little girl is extremely fun, you need to ensure that she’s comfortable with what she is wearing. Kids have different skin than ours; their skin won’t tolerate some materials or cuts as we do, and every kid is different. Therefore, you need to ensure that your little girl is comfortable. Unlike adults, kids don’t want to trade comfort for style.
Also, you’re setting yourself up for a ton of crying and outbursts if your little girl is not comfortable. Make it a habit to ask them if the piece of clothing is comfortable before buying it. Even if you’re convinced that it has the softest material ever, listen to your child. The only way to ensure that your child is comfortable is to listen to them.
3. Beware of sizing
No matter how many children you have, sizing will always be challenging for parents. When you’re buying clothes for your kids, you always want to size up a bit because children grow at rocket speed so you want to ensure that you don’t buy a full wardrobe every season.
You can find yourself buying her a spring dress that won’t fit the next spring. So, you want to buy clothes that don’t perfectly fit, but at the same time aren’t so big. That tip is especially useful for pieces that they won’t wear regularly such as formal dresses or birthday skirts. So, as a rule of thumb: choose sizes that are comfortable and will last for some time in their closet.
4. Coordinate outfits in your head before buying
We all make the mistake of buying pieces that we love and then finding out that it doesn’t go well with what we already have. Hence the “I don’t have anything to wear when your closet is overflowing with clothes” problem. So, one of the smartest things to do is to coordinate outfits rather than just buy things that look cute.
By buying unique pieces, you are putting a limit on the outfits your kid can wear. You want to make sure that you buy basics in neutral or basic colors and then add some vibrant tones and patterns. Having the basics make room for elegant outfits by adding pops of colors and patterns whenever you want to, and mixing things up for more options.
5. Less is more when it comes to dressing up little girls
Dressing up your girl elegantly goes hand in hand with simplicity. Little girls don’t feel comfortable in overwhelming outfits and tons of accessories, so you don’t need to buy them a lot of extra pieces to have them feel cute and stylish.
Instead, all they need are cute and simple accessories such as headbands or small bows paired with a floral dress or a fluffy skirt and basic top. You want to keep things simple and add some touches either by choosing patterned clothing, some glitter shoes, cute socks, or simple accessories such as headbands.
Another way to add some style is to brush their hair in a cute hairstyle and put some colorful hairpins. Little girls don’t need to go overboard, just a mixture of simplicity and cuteness will make them look gorgeous without overwhelming them.
