Clothes For Kids: What To Wear and When

Fashion is a great way for your kids to express their creativity and personality. But with so many different kids' clothes trends and styles to pick from, it can be difficult to know where to start. PixieLane is here to be of service.

We’re a company designed by busy moms, for busy moms, and we want to make it as fun and easy as possible to help your kids find the clothes they love. That’s why we’re sharing some select styles for boys and girls and the best events for showing off their new outfits.

What Are the Cutest Girls’ Clothes?

Dressing little girls can be a ton of fun. After all, there are so many cute accessories and pieces for them to check out and style. But you also want to make sure your little girl is comfortable, warm, and able to head out on the next great adventure in her new look.

Here are a few of our favorite pieces for little girls:

Dresses

Of course, you can’t go wrong with dresses. Little girls’ dresses can be dressed up or made more casual with ease, depending on the shoes and accessories you pick. And that’s just one reason they’re a great pick for any wardrobe.

Dresses are fun and easy to match, great for layering with cardigans and sweaters, and a surefire hit for any girl’s wardrobe. Don’t forget to check out special occasion dresses, as well.

Sets

When you don’t want to have to worry about matching pieces, matching sets are the way to go. Typically, sets are comprised of a top and bottom piece, like shorts or pants and a t-shirt or tank top.

You can find matching sets in patterns, colors, or styles, and they’re sure to make it easier to get out of the house in the morning. If you have little girls around the same age, matching sets are a great option for family photos and events. Dressing your children in matching outfits is also a great way to keep track of all your little ones while out and about. 

Jumpsuits and Rompers

Of course, you can’t go wrong with jumpsuits and rompers. They’re similar to dresses in that they’re one connected piece of clothing, but the bottom is made up of shorts or pants rather than a skirt. These are soft as pajamas, so it's no surprise that this item is the first item they grab in the morning.

These easy-to-shop collections are comfortable and provide plenty of mobility but can still be dressed up for more formal or important events for the family.

What Are the Coolest Boys’ Clothes?

And the cuteness doesn’t end there. You also have lots of great picks for fun and cool boys’ clothes, as well, including some of the following.

Graphic Tops

Graphic tee-shirts are a must-have for any boy’s wardrobe. They’re comfortable and can go in the washer and dryer, so you don’t have to worry about your little ones getting messy.

They can also be matched with lots of cool pieces and accessories, like sneakers and jeans for a more casual look or a sweater to elevate his style. These are fun to pair with cargo pants and durable jackets for boys who are rough on their clothes. 

Sets

Here at PixieLane, we also carry sets for boys, which helps to take the guesswork out of every outfit. You’ll find boys’ sets with fun patterns like tie-dye, stars, and holiday buffalo print patterns for cozy occasions. They can even show off their team spirit with sports-themed prints and patterns, as well. 

Camo

We also carry sets in camo, as well as many other great camo pieces. Camo is dark, so you don’t have to worry about rushing home to wash in the event of a spill. It’s also a cool adventure color that little boys are sure to love and matches well with earth tones and neutrals.

You can find camo styles for lots of pieces from pants to shirts to shoes. Similar color schemes and sets can make it easy for kids to be proactive and choose their own clothes in the morning. 

When Should My Kids Wear Their New Clothes? 

Now that you have the great new pieces for your kids, where are they going to wear them? 

Here are a few of the top spots where your kids can show off their favorite styles and outfits:

School Events

Your little ones have lots of school events and activities to enjoy, and the right outfit will help to make the occasion extra special. Find cute looks for celebrations and festivals, outdoor activities, field trips, and a whole lot more. They’re sure to love the chance to express their personal style.

Playdates

Playdates are another great option for enjoying their new clothes. Playdates are a way to get to know their friends and classmates in a comfortable place, like home or at the park, but there’s still plenty of room for games and activities.

Dress them up in comfortable, easy-to-move-in clothes for the next adventure with friends (and don’t forget the sunscreen!).

Birthday Parties

You may want to accessorize or style their new outfits for birthday parties, which tend to be a little more formal. While many kids’ birthday parties have activities and games, as well, they’re also a chance to celebrate a classmate’s special day. Add bows, ribbons, cute shoes, and more to show your kids have come ready to party.  

Top Pick: When, Wear, Where

Fashion trends are always changing, and it can be hard to keep up, especially with growing kids. The good news is that with a few basics in their wardrobe, you can put together an outfit for any type of occasion or event.

For girls, try out dresses, matching sets, and jumpsuits, and rompers to keep them cute and comfortable. Boys are sure to love graphic tees with their favorite characters and sayings, camo patterns, and cool accessories to elevate every look.

 Whatever the next style or event might be, PixieLane is here every step of the way. We carry a wide collection of clothing for the whole family, and that’s not all. We’re also sharing guides and resources for dressing your loved ones and yourself with ease—and it’s easy to get started right here on our website.
