Till your child is an infant, you can dress him up in clothes of your preference. However, toddlers have their own preferences and choices in clothes. Therefore, choosing your toddlers clothes can be a difficult task. While purchasing clothing for them, one should keep in mind that even though toddlers enjoy making their own choices, if presented with too many options, they feel confused and over whelmed.
Hence they should be presented with only a couple of choices which the parent has already screened. By asking for their help in selection of clothes, one can make them feel grown up and useful. This shopping spree can then be enjoyed by both, the parents and the toddler and can be treated as a fun filled outing.
While making these purchases, it is important to keep certain facts in mind. Toddler clothing should be such that it does not easily get caught up in furniture or other items. Durable clothes should be preferred since kids have a tendency to get their clothes dirty. Repeated washing should not harm these clothes. Care should also be taken while washing and storing this clothing in order to maintain their appearance and durability. Another important factor to be kept in mind is the material used to make the clothes. While cotton is the most popular, other fabrics can also be considered provided that they are soft to touch and comfortable to wear.
Along with the above mentioned factors, it is important to ensure that the toddler clothing which is purchased is one in vogue. Style becomes a little more important in a toddlers wardrobe at this age since they interact with other kids of their age group. Due to this, designers in the fashion world are now targeting infants, toddlers and adolescents and bringing out a range of clothing for them very similar to that for adults.
While clothes for boys range from three piece suits, dinner jackets with long trousers, short trousers and suspenders, overalls, shorts and vests, girls clothing ranges from evening gowns, party frocks, skirts and blouses to faded denims and shorts. In all, toddlers clothes are now designed keeping the casual as well as formal occasions in mind.
