The Big Don’ts Parents Should Avoid While Dressing Their Kids

As kids, there have been more than one incident where we dressed up as clowns. The reason is our parents were trying new things to make us look smart. They make for really good anecdotes now but back in the day that was embarrassing whether we admit it or not. But yeah now looking back at all those things really makes one wonder what they were thinking. Well, the good news is that all they did was done out of the love they had for us. And everyone learned a valuable lesson from it that we should never repeat the same mistakes.

Overdressing and Ill-fitting Clothes Are a No Go

Firstly, you should avoid overdressing your kids. Yes, the jackets might look cool but they also hinder their movements. You can go for light clothes that are easy to wear and look elegant on your baby. Pre-school children are very young and they can take things to heart. Be mindful of your baby’s comfort. 

When you are dressing your kids ill-fitting oversize can work at home but not anywhere else. You must carefully consider what fits them right and gives them comfort. Every kid grows at his/her own pace. The size in the fashion industry is based on approximation and you can get the wrong size sometimes. This can be avoided if you are shopping from a lego online store like Babycouture or taking your kids for physical shopping. 

Avoid Silly Haircuts

Every child is adorable for their parents but not for anyone else. Do not give other kids a chance to mock your baby for a haircut that you find cute but looks devastating on him/her. Also, the weird cuts make for embarrassing memories later on in life. You can spare your child from these moments if you take a step back now. You can always go for normal cuts or ask a kids’ professional stylist to ready them before the pre-school starts to bring their best looks out.

Avoid Old Fashioned and Poorly Stitched Clothes

Yes, retro looks are classy but they are not everyday looks. Your children will be meeting their friends who all are dressed in similar styles while they are looking out of the place. You can keep one or two well-tailored outfits in their wardrobes for special occasions but try to keep their everyday clothes casual. Also, clothes with poor stitching should be avoided. They make your babies look catastrophic in their eyes and create difficulties for them. Poorly stitched embroidery is never a good option no matter how tempting it looks.

Read the School’s Dress Code Carefully

The first thing to do when you are looking to dress your kid in trendy dresses or add accessories is to give the dress code in your baby’s school guidebook a careful read. We do not want the children to be reprimanded or pointed out for not following the regulations. Many t-shirts can have colors or prints that do not fall under the school’s accepted category like graphic t-shirts. 

Ask Your Child’s Opinion

Your kid is learning to express himself/herself. The best thing you can do for them is giving them a choice. A choice of really good combinations that they can easily wear, is perfect for the day’s weather and looks stunning on them. If you directly give your little one the right to dress it will become catastrophic. Start slowly at first. Ask for their opinions when surfing the net for their clothes. Plan their next dressing session in advance. Make sure that some necessary things are taken care of before you present them with these choices. 

Firstly, check the weather the previous night to decide on the layers. Not too much and not too little should be the everyday motto. Secondly, do not choose clashing colors. And lastly, avoid heavy-duty stuff like buttons and such. Kids learn at their own pace. Start with clothes that are easy to wear and gradually increase the difficulty.
