When you think of the look you want your child to convey, do you think classy or trendy? The thought was recently brought on by my own little six-month-old, fashionista-in-the-works, little Bella. I didn‚Äôt think this out much with my son. He kind of just took on the style his daddy favored. I‚Äôve always liked and trusted my husband‚Äôs sense of style, so it worked well.
But for my daughter, the question of classic vs. trendy posed a dilemma for me. Do I want to dress her up with the cutest trends around or do I want to stick with modern classics? I always say that she will probably end up being at the opposite side of the spectrum and love denim and t-shirts! I am totally willing to accept whatever she chooses to become. But for these few precious unopinionated months or years of early childhood, I‚Äôll have the privilege to set her looks.
I came up with the following conclusions:
1) Trendy clothes are super adorable on children as long as they are tasteful.
2) Classic styles and brands of clothes are nice to have for those formal times such as weddings, portraits, graduations, etc‚Ä¶
3) Trendy clothes in classic colors make for a great clean, modern look.
Whatever style or look you choose for your child, let it be a tasteful expression of who your child is!
