If your kids are getting older and their clothing is becoming less comfortable for them to wear, it’s time to revamp their wardrobe. For growing kids, this can be an annual event, so how can you create a wardrobe that is stylish, sustainable, and cost-effective? Read on for more details.
Make it Smart
Chances are you want your kids to look as smart and together as yourself, perhaps even smarter. Whether we like it or not, our children are a reflection of us, and the choices we make for their clothing say a lot about our parenting and values, so choose clothes that match them.
It might be a particularly ethical brand that you like to support or a style that you think suits your child or the family culture; either way, finding the most appropriate clothing for your children reflects the family in a positive light. Don’t forget to consider secondhand clothing for them.
Make it Simple
Chances are you will have to organize a wardrobe for your child or children every year; they simply grow so fast. That’s why secondhand clothing is such a sensible idea; it reduces the costs of buying clothing for your kids and increases your range of options every season.
But the thing that you should keep in mind when buying kid’s clothing is that simplicity makes a significant difference to your lifestyle; if you have a range of simple options that you can mix and match on a daily basis, you have more time for other tasks. Keep the clothes simple and plain.
Make it Sustainable
There is a tendency for parents to buy cheap fast-fashion children’s clothing to save money, but that’s not always the best option; it’s certainly not the best value because the clothing items become fast and can’t be reused, and it is not good for the planet. It’s not an ethical choice.
If you want to make your kid’s wardrobe more sustainable, then think about the entire life cycle of the girls pyjamas. After you buy them, where will it go next? And where did you buy the item from? If you bought it secondhand, you are already on the right track. Also, consider materials.
Make it Comfortable
Kids need to be comfortable in the clothing they wear, so make sure the clothes that you buy fit well and are made from warm and comfortable materials – especially in the winter. Kid’s comfort is important for their wellbeing, and you can expect them to complain if they are uncomfortable.
Buying comfortable clothing for your kids is a little more tricky when you buy secondhand as you need to make sure it fits them properly; the good news is that most kinds of clothing come with tags that tell you the age on them, so you have a better chance of getting better fitting clothes.
Make it Flexible
Creating an effective wardrobe for kids is similar to creating a capsule wardrobe for an adult. To make it work, you need to choose plain-colored clothing and keep styles simple; the idea is that each clothing item overlaps with something else, so there are always outfits to mix and match.
