It’s more important than ever to really make your dollar stretch as far as it will go – and that is especially true when it comes to kids’ clothes since children grow so fast and seem to constantly need new clothes. To make the most of your children’s back-to-school clothes, try mixing and matching! Here are some quick and easy tips on how to maximize your kids’ wardrobe by mixing and matching.
Stick with solids
When mixing and matching, it’s important to have a “base” of solids – such as grey, black, khaki or denim “bottoms” that can coordinate with various shirts with patterns, style or adornments. You don’t have to go monochrome, though! Take the example of pants set, just let your children mix and match his solid pants/shorts, style with a stylish, fun shirt. On the other hand, pair a solid shirt with patterned or adorned “bottoms” also bring the same amazing results!
Forget the sets
Following the above idea, clothing that is purchased as a set is often meant to go together and therefore, is tough to mix and match. Therefore, when you are doing shopping for children’s clothes, you should take that into consideration. If neither part of the “set” can be worn with another bottom or top, it might not get as much use as you intended. Sometimes, it is a great idea to choose a kid clothing set which allows for the mix-match and exchange among sets. This can no doubt helps to optimize your children’s selection and also save parents a considerable amount of budget spent on fashion children clothing. Be selective when shopping and stick with a mix and match line so anyway your child combines an outfit, it’ll work!
Mixing and matching are ideal when it comes to dressing for the transitional seasons. You can easily pair shorts and a t-shirt with a light cardigan for morning walks to the bus stop. Think about the creation of layers! This can bring a surprising and amazing result that is out of your imagination!
There is nothing like a little accessorizing to make an outfit look entirely different. A bow, fun necklace or watch, or a cute hat could be just the thing to make a mix and match outfit look new again. Accessories for children also include bags and backpacks of different materials and shapes. Take care of that and it can make change to your children’s appearance.
Let your children express their individuality when it comes to their personal style. Just because you may think something doesn’t match, doesn’t mean your child feels the same way. Your child could just be on the cutting edge of a new mix-and-match trend. Mixing and matching should be fun, so don’t take it too seriously – and your kids won’t either! Giving them choices on what to wear teaches them responsibility and it puts them in charge of their style. They’ll love picking out the perfect outfit just as much as you do.
