The majority of toddlers and pre-schoolers have supreme confidence in their clothing choices. They don’t care what anyone else thinks because they know that they look good in whatever they choose to adorn themselves in.
Sadly for them, their parents will attempt to stifle their creativity:
“Whaddya mean I can’t wear my bathing suit to a wedding?”
“Stripes, polka dots and checks go perfectly well together.”
“I want to wear the onesie from when I was six months old as a neck warmer (because that’s the only way it fits) teamed with my big brother’s trousers that are way too big for me. No I don’t want to wear a shirt with that ensemble – don’t you know anything about style?”
When you come across an item of clothing that works with everything and that you really, really like, then make sure to wear it every day. See how well this buoyancy vest goes with these outfits? Despite all her best efforts, Briannah has somehow managed to colour coordinate her clothing with the vest. Sadly this means she loses style points, because everyone knows that clashing colours are the most important part of any outfit.
Accessorizing with a bag or two is very important for this look because you’ll need them to carry around extra shoes, but, this is very important, none of the shoes must match.
Whilst a hair band is a fabulous accessory, it should never, ever be worn on the head.
No, for the ultimate in head style, you can’t beat sticking your head in a carry-bed for a doll.
Now this fabulous outfit looks like it’s straight from the catwalks of Milan, Paris, London or New York. Big hats and shoes are all the rage at the moment. And that little off the shoulder number she’s wearing? Just fabulous, dahling. Soon everyone will be raiding underwear stores for extra-large knickers (or just steal your Mum’s from the laundry basket) so they can rock this look too.
Fortunately there’s a lucrative market for pre-schoolers to collaborate with designers on their fashion collections. At least I think there is, because that’s the only way I can explain these:
Fortunately, when your child is determined to rush headlong into life as a fashion criminal, we have one last ace up our sleeves to threaten them with . . .
Oh, and please feel free to leave a comment because it makes me feel all stylish and stuff.
