Our clothes are an expression of our individuality. We use what we wear to make a statement to the world.
Kids love to take their creativity to the next level, and show It off to everyone they come across.
As a parent, you should encourage your child to express how they feel without worrying about being criticized. If your child is not hurting anyone, wearing material that promotes promiscuity, or wearing stained clothing, then it’s safe to let them be.
Don’t worry about prices and going over the budget, because if you look around I’m pretty sure you could find great deals on clothes, especially for kids.
While shopping at big name retailers might be your first choice, don’t forget about consigner shops who sell a variety of styles for usually half the price.
How long has it been since you took out that old needle and thread? Don’t underestimate your talents or the talents of your kids, there are resources available which allows us to create our own custom made t-shirts for the ultimate self expression! If your child has to wear uniforms because of school codes, then let the weekend be a time for self expression.
Experts actually agree, that it's not a good idea to limit what your child can and can not wear out in public because it teaches them to suppress their true selves. Malls, doctors offices, post offices, or even churches should not be off limits for your child to be him or herself! After all, God did say, "come as you are." I'm going to give a run down of kid wear that's expressive, inexpensive and very trendy!
Trendy clothes don’t have to be expensive clothing. Some of the cheaper retailers like Walmart and Target sell some similar designed clothing items as the big names, such as Aeropaslte and Ed Hardy, and for a lot less.
Kids grow so fast and you definitely don’t want to waste hundreds of dollars on items they probably won’t be able to fit in within the next year. Don't forget to accessorize with jewelry, head pieces, and scarves as well. If your going to pack your little ones closet with cool, trendy pieces then these items are must haves:
• Graphic tees are bold, colorful and eccentric
• Skinny jeans are edgy and can be embraced by both genders
• Ruffled skirts are bouncy and playful
• Necklaces can transform an entire outfit from bland to chic
• Headbands bring color to your hair and allow girls to create different styles
• Loonytune t-shirts don't have a age limit, and they're cute and fun
Well parents, there's your run down of trendy clothes and accessories for your kids. We covered just about eveything from t-shirts to jeans. Those were all the basic clothing items, but remember to be creative.
You can always throw on a vintage vest with a t-shirt that has the face of your favorite rock band or singer on the front. Style is not limited in anyway and don't forget kids shoes! Sandals are still in fashion all throughout summer as well as shoes with no strings. Don't ask! Have fun dressing your kids.
