Even though we are in the midst of summer, the stores all around us are getting ready for the next season, fall. The presence of fall fashions brings to mind the beginning of school and the slight cooling of the weather.
Trying to dress boys is a hefty task. The struggle between what looks nice and what they want to wear is a real one. When my kids get dressed each day, they will grab a shirt and a pair of shorts and just put them on without giving any attention to what matches. Picture a red shirt with neon orange athletic shorts. You think I’m kidding… That’s why when I shop for them; I make sure that the clothes are able to be easily interchangeable.
Luckily for them, there are no rules in fashion anymore. You can pair patterns together that wouldn’t normally “go together.” Creativity in your closet is key this fall season. (My kids are finally in style!) This will take a bit of courage on my part, but I still won’t give in to red and neon orange!
Fall Fashions for Boys:
Camouflage is huge this year! My kids love it because it reminds them of camping. I love it because it hides the dirt! Muted camouflage goes well with any color…even pink. The trend is to even pair it with floral patterns for girls.
Activewear, or “Ath Leisure”, is also all the rage this fall. Kids in comfortable mesh fabrics paired with fun graphics t-shirts makes playtime all day.
Fresh plaids are a great way to add fun colors into a boys’ wardrobe. I love plaid shirts with a solid T under with a great pair of jeans. It’s a great way to dress up without being too formal.
Carter’s, a name trusted by millions of moms for fashion for babies, has created a “big kids” line of clothing. They now design clothing for sizes 7-12. It’s so exciting to know that your bigger kids can continue to get quality clothing for a price that you love.
My kids grew up with Carter’s, not only because the clothes were made well, but because the clothing is age-appropriate while still being relevant to today’s fashion trends. Some clothing styles are way too grown up for young children; not really with boys’ fashion, but with the girls’. It’s important that Carter’s provides fashion that is tasteful.
Oh, and don’t forget the fun Halloween items they have!
