When it comes to growing toddlers, it is hard to just roll out the wardrobe from last summer and let the kids rock the hand-me-downs. Parents have to look for new clothes every season simply due to the fact that the kids do not fit in last years clothes. But, if shopping must be done, parents should have some fun with it. To get started, here are the five “toddler must haves” for this summer season.
Neon colors have made a huge comeback in fashion over the past few years. This summer is no exception. Bright yellows, greens, purples, oranges, blues and pinks are popping up everywhere, especially on the kids. More often than not, neon colors are seen on casual t-shirts, tank tops or skirts rather than formal wear. Look for the bright colors and let the kids choose their favorites.
Nothing is cuter than a little girl in a summer jumper. This year, bold patterns and pictures are very popular. Big, brightly-colored flowers on a flowing skirt are beautiful choices. Faint sparkles are also popular among little princesses. Look for the bold choices with small extras that are classy but fun. Big bows that tie in the back, built in belts or flowers on the front. Choose light fabrics that are good for summer and designs that will make a little girl feel beautiful.
Summer is the season to accessorize. Let the kids have a little fun and choose plastic jewelry, such as necklaces, bracelets or rings, sunglasses, backpacks or handbags. Useful summer accessories include baseball caps or sunhats, sandals and summertime-colored toddler belts. When looking for sandals, try and choose styles that will be comfortable while playing during the summer months. Also look for bright colors when it comes to both shoes and hook and loop toddler belts.
