When I was around the age of 7, I remember having this dress I would pick over any other for Sunday, it was a red ballet-like ball ‘babies’ dress with pretty ruffles beneath. I loved it so much that come next Sunday and the next Sunday I would always want to put it on. Now looking back, I can’t help but laugh at my silly self, I had zero idea about the rules of fashion. Though I was aware of how I wanted to look.
This is not different from most kids, with time they become aware of their looks and how to dress to suit their personality.
As much as parents allow their kids to express their personal style,they also guide them so their little ones can look acceptable while stepping outside of their home. Most times, it can be more about parents as their kids, as parents want their kids to look cool, like an extension of themselves, in line with the “mini-me’’ revolution. That’s why more parents will happily open their wallets to make their little ones look fashionable.
We fall in love at first sight with gorgeous looking children. And kids in comfy, elegant and flattering clothing tells how much a child is being taken care of.
Getting the perfect clothing from birth to teenage years can be tasking and quite stressful.
