8 Tips for Dressing Kids Stylishly
8 Tips for Dressing Kids Stylishly
The fall season is an ideal time to update your kid’s wardrobe. It’s likely that they have grown over the summer, first day of school outfits are still on our minds, and getting organized is a high priority. A lot of parents are searching for their favorite tips for dressing kids stylishly. The team at Kidpik has put together a few of their favorites that have stood the test of time.
1) Find the Perfect Fit First
First and foremost, clothes should fit well. Even for little ones. Waistbands should be adjustable so that they are comfortable all day long. You want to make sure that sleeves and pant legs are the right length so that there’s no interference with doing all of their favorite activities throughout the day. T-shirts and tops should fit just right and not be too bulky to prevent stylish layering.
Kidpik stands out in the fit category by designing, developing, and creating all pieces in-house. The fit is consistent across all items, so there's never a surprise in terms of how something fits.
2) Discover and Embrace Your Kid’s Personal Style
Every kid is unique and a way to express themselves is through fashion. Some kids like a sporty or classic look, while others like a more urban vibe. That’s great! Kidpik is there to help kids and adults find outfits that are stylish, mix-n-match, are great for a range of occasions, and make getting ready easy.
Want to learn more about finding your kid’s personal style? Kidpik offers a fun style quiz that takes only 3 minutes to complete. This is a great activity for parents and kids to do together. Based on the quiz, Kidpik’s stylists curate mix-and-match outfits tailored to your child's unique style.
3) Color Your World
Kids and color are the perfect match. Each season our team of stylists checks what’s trending and incorporates these colors into outfits that are mix-n-match. If your kid wants to try a new color, encourage them! It’s easy to do. Kidpik’s curated outfits make it easy to introduce color and build on that outfit through a wide selection on shop.
4) Mix and Match Patterns and Textures
Adults are doing this, so why can’t the kids?! Mixing patterns and textures can make a bold statement. Start with neutral patterns like stripes and add in textures like sparkles or knits.
The Kidpik team ensures that their collections include a variety of textures and patterns. This means your child can experiment with different combinations, adding a dash of flair to their look.
5) Versatility is Key
Children grow fast, so it’s essential to select pieces they'll want to wear repeatedly. Avoid buying items for single events, like a birthday party. Instead, opt for versatile pieces that can be dressed up or down. Kidpik offers versatile pieces designed to be worn on multiple occasions like khaki’s and button downs that can be layered or for girls, a selection of skirts and dresses that are stylish for a party and comfy for the playground.
6) Buy with Outfits in Mind
Always aim to buy pieces that can be combined in different ways, creating new outfits without needing to purchase additional items. Kidpik’s curated boxes are designed to offer mix-and-match outfits, allowing for a myriad of combinations. This approach helps parents buy less while creating more outfit options.
7) Color Coordinate
Pick a color scheme of two or three hues for your child's outfit. This adds an element of cohesion, making even simple outfits look thoughtful and put-together. Kidpik’s curated outfits are already color-coordinated. This makes it easy for parents and ensures that your child will always be on trend!
8) The Magic of Matching Sets
Matching sets, such as track sets, are an effortless way to look stylish. The coordination does most of the work for you, leaving only the choice of shoes and accessories – which Kidpik can add to any box for you!
