The wardrobe needs for your child vary based on their age and how active your household is. With unpredictable yet frequent infant messes, babies require the most clothing. Toddlers, on the other hand, require more diversity in their clothes than quantity. School-age children spend the most time outside and require a wide range of children’s apparel, from coats to footwear and even hats!
The minimalist approach is not the ideal choice when you have a growing youngster at home, especially if you are a busy mom who doesn’t want to waste time washing clothing! For today’s modern lifestyle, your children will require an average of nine pairs of clothing. Here is a spring closet idea for your toddler.
Start with cleaning out the closet.
The first step is to look through your closet to see what still fits and if you have any presents or hand-me-downs in the proper size. This is a solid foundation for your capsule. Also, be sure to get rid of anything that no longer fits, so it doesn’t take up room and cause unneeded clutter.
Choose a Color Scheme
Choose your neutrals and any accent colors; this may be driven by things you already own; in that case, consider colors that can best tie them together to provide you with a variety of options. The simplest option is to restrict accent colors and patterns to the tops or bottoms and neutrals in the other places, but you may also blend color in other ways; it just takes a little more forethought. Choose designs that integrate a couple of your colors so that they may be worn with a variety of products.
How many Pieces Do You Need?
Except for onesies and undershirts, our toddler capsules feature five to six distinct tops and bottoms.
Here is a breakdown of your spring wardrobe for your toddler’s closet:
- Seven shirts (3 short sleeves, four long sleeves)
- 2 Dresses for girls/ a lovely dress dress-shirt with a pair of matching pants for boys
- Seven bottoms (3 leggings, three pants, one overall)
- Three layers/Outerwear (1 hoodie, two cardigans)
- Coats (1 coat, one snowsuit)
- Three pairs of shoes (1 slipper, 1 for outdoor, one snow boot)
Use your money carefully.
Don not let the sales cycle determine your purchasing decisions. Rather, spread out your purchases over the year based on your children’s demands and the changing seasons. In the long run, you will save more money by eliminating unused items in your child’s wardrobe.
Make the most of your kid’s closet.
If you find gorgeous gowns or fashionable jeans with tags still on while spring cleaning, it is a clear indicator that your kids have more items than they can wear. Remember that children grow every week and that they require a whole new wardrobe between seasons. What should you do with your child’s lightly used clothes? Donate them to a good cause or pass them on to family members or acquaintances who have younger children!
