TIPS TO DRESS UP YOUR CHILD FOR DIFFERENT OCCASIONS
When it comes to fashion and children, no matter how trendy or stylish the dress is, it should be comfortable for them and appropriate for the occasion. A light summer frock on a winter morning is sure to make your daughter freeze. And a heavy layered party dress may not be the right choice for a beach outing. Dressing them according to the season and occasion puts the child at ease while still being in style.
Beach: Comfort is key, so dress your child in light, airy and comfortable clothes in pastel hues and breathable fabrics like linen and cotton. Colourful onesies for toddlers; shorts and sundresses in playful prints for girls; and shorts in animal and cartoon prints for boys are the trend. Don’t forget those funky neon-coloured slippers and caps!
Casual: Take a leaf out of little North West’s fashion book and dress your little one in funky tights and slacks paired with cute tops and matching caps. When the weather is chill, throw a pastel-shaded knit coat over his shoulder for a casual smart look. Boys can wear gingham prints, t-shirts with sailboat or crown motifs and light cotton shorts or pants. Canvas shoes and backpacks in modern prints are also popular for children.
Party: Detailing such as ruffles, buckles, lace, laser-cut fabrics and shiny accessories are the rage this year and apt for party time. Get your little one ready for party fun with gold and silver-coloured shoes, flouncy dresses, embroidered denim and tailored pants.
Weddings: In India, festive occasions and weddings call for heavy ethnic pieces and lots of bling. But for children, keeping it comfortable yet trendy is important. Cotton kurta with sleeveless jackets in rustic, earthy tones and band-galas will make the boys’ look fetching this wedding season. Ready-to-wear dhotis for children also look incredibly cute. Pair these with colourful jootis.
You should always keep these minute details in mind while dressing up your child. Observing what clothes do your kids feel comfortable is a key and dressing them incorrectly can make them furious. So, whatever be the trend, keeping things simple and not overdoing it, is important. You must keep in mind that your child should be comfortable and feel free when it comes to clothing. After all, the style or look should reflect your child’s unique personality. Happy dressing up!
