Shopping for your children is a bit different from your clothes. You know your preferences, therefore, it does not require much effort and time to pick up clothes. However, as a new mom, you want your kid to look cute and be comfortable at the same time.
Frankly, it appears almost impossible to find clothes that are comfortable and stylish at the same time. However, the reality is quite the opposite. You might have been looking for the clothes in the wrong places or do not know how to pick the children’s clothes. The latter is usually the case with most new moms.
If you are done wasting your time and money, here are the 5 tips that would help you add the right clothes to the cart.
- Pay attention to the fabric
- Pick the right size
- Know which colors look good on your child and what sort of clothes they like
- If you have to pick between comfort and stylish, choose comfort
- Make sure the clothes you pick do not restrict movement
Pay attention to the fabric
The one thing that deserves your undivided attention is the fabric. The children’s skin is soft, even the clothes can cause rashes and allergies. Therefore you have to read the label to figure out what fabric is used and whether it’s hypoallergenic or not. 100% cotton clothes are best for summers. Whereas in spring and fall preferences can be given to linen and for winters you can invest in fleece or wool.
Pick the right size
It’s a common practice to pick a size or two up than your kid’s “actual” size. Frankly, picking the larger size is not always the right option. If you are planning to shop for kids’ apparel and might not wear more than once this season, you can pick a size up. However, if there is a whole season to use and abuse, pick the true size. Otherwise, they would remain uncomfortable and might not be able to play in them as well.
Know which colors look good on your child
Everyone has a few colors that look good on them. The same is the case with children’s clothes. Your kid might also look good in a few colors, you have to figure out what suits him/her the most. If the dark colors look good on your kid, choose darker colors otherwise you can pick lighter ones. Moreover, to not fail this time you can ask about your children’s color and style preferences and choose something accordingly.
If you have to pick between comfort and stylish, choose comfort
There would be two types of clothes; comfortable and stylish or stylish. You either have to pick comfortable and stylish or comfortable clothes. Look for comfortability, do not prefer style or comfort.
Make sure the clothes you pick do not restrict movement
The children’s clothes should neither be baggy nor be too fit to move and play around. Try imaging your children in the dress you have picked and ask yourself whether he/she would be able to play in it or not. The answer should be “yes, comfortably”.
