Kids’ fashion is serious business these days. As designer Kate Spade said, “Playing dress-up begins at the age of five and never truly ends.” While it looks like all fun and games, budgets often go haywire when shopping for growing children. However, as a parent, you always look for the best outfits to dress your little ones in. So, to make things easier on the pocket, here are five kids wear options under INR 1000 that not just fit your budget, but are also in vogue for your dapper dudes and little fashionistas:
Him: Taking a leaf out of celebrity kids’ everyday look books, dress your little boy in a smart solid polo tee with and shorts for a casual day out. If the weather is cold, swap the shorts with jeans and throw on a warm winter jacket over his shoulder for a dapper ensemble.
Her: Little girls in floral lace dresses look absolutely adorable for a day outing. Bright colours, vibrant prints, and soft silhouettes go a long way with little divas that follow their own fashion icons to the T. Complete her look with a pair of stylish gold ballerina shoes. With simple tied-back hair, your little one is set for a fun day of running around.
Intricate detailing on clothing isn’t just for adults- but also for children! Heading to a fancy party with your little one is no easy task. They want to dress like you, match their outfits and are still never happy with the result.
Him: Dress up your picky brat in a stylishly notched lapel printed blazer, solid t-shirt and trouser pants for a trendy party look. Throw in a lapel pin as he twins with his dapper dad in style. Secretly hope it’s enough to make both of them happy.
Her: For your little girl, a beautiful A-line embellished dress will be the perfect party outfit as she twirls with grace. Soft pleats and flowers adorned with stunning sequins will make her the centre of attention. To complete her Disney princess look, add a pair of matching clips and a beaded bracelet.
Indian weddings call for dressy outfits and lots of bling even for the little ones. However, with children, it’s futile to spend on designer pieces that they outgrow them so quickly. Also, heavy embellished Indian wear is quite uncomfortable for little ones to wear all day and play around in.
Him: The best way to make your little boy happy is to dress him up in a chic kurta-pyjama and jacket set. A full-sleeved mandarin collared kurta in solid colours will add to his captivating charisma as he enjoys running around during the festive fervour. Complete his traditional Indian look with bright-printed Nehru jacket and traditional mojari shoes.
Her: Baby girls love dressing up like their mothers, and there is no better occasion to twin than at an Indian wedding. Doll up your little girl in a chic lehenga choli set. A bright-printed choli with light embellishments will look apt for the occasion while the flowy lehenga below will ensure maximum comfort all day long. Pin a contrasting dupatta and matching jewellery and watch her gave fun twirling and dancing around with her friends.
When it comes to children, picking vacation outfits means more than just style, you have to focus on their comfort. Depending on your holiday destination, you can dress them both appropriate for the season and in style.
Summer: For a beach holiday, light, airy outfits in breathable fabrics like cotton and linen are excellent choices. A cotton-printed graphic tee with colourful cotton shorts will help your baby boy be at ease and will lend a smart appeal.
Play around with fun prints and pastel colours for your baby girl. A cute-printed round neck vest with ruffled shorts will keep her fashion game on point.
While you’re at it, add a playful element to their vacation vibe with funky cartoon slippers, hats, and sunglasses.
Winter: If you are heading to a cold holiday destination, layering your little ones with different pieces will keep them both warm and stylish. A stylish jacket over a sweater vest and pants is a great winter outfit for boys. While girls can warm up in a pair of cute dungarees and a turtle neck inside. Play with accessories like a scarf or a woollen cap to add to the look.
Clothes play a key role in feeding a child’s imagination and shaping their personalities. But with growth spurts on the rise, dressing your little ones appropriately can be difficult. So, it is important to manage their outfits within a budget. For important school functions, go for a mix of bold colours and strong patterns.
Him: A navy blue polka patterned shirt with formal beige trousers will lend a gentlemanly appeal as your baby boy grows. Subtle polka prints or self-designs will complement an occasion and ensure his quirky childhood is retained through a fun outfit. Add a pair of suspenders and formal shoes for a befitting formal touch.
Her: For your little lady, a formal dress with a sleek belt will be a stellar combination. Fun bell sleeves and an asymmetrical hemline in a solid pattern will add flair to her formal monochrome look. Colour combinations like red-blue, black-white and cream-gold will create a striking appearance for the formal setting.
Whatever the trend or occasion, when picking outfits for your little ones, it is important to ensure both quality and comfort. Make sure that your child feels free in whatever it is you choose to dress him or her in. After all, it is about reflecting their unique style in the most comfortable way.
