Of course, you can say that children’s fashion itself is not needed at all by the children themselves. What is it that mothers realize their ambitions and satisfy the sense of beauty, dressing up their beloved daughters and sons?
I think that the five-year-old boy will not even notice in which jacket of the company he went for a walk or does his new t-shirt match the color of his socks. About kids up to a year and nothing to say. Interest in their appearance appears in children from the age of 10. Girls start to dress up, and boys show off their fashionable caps.
Fashion for babies
I encountered children’s fashion before the moment when my child was born. When I was pregnant, I walked around the children’s stores and watched the picture several times: the ladies in the position bought up expensive overalls, suits and sliders. I suspect that they were able to wear some outfits only a couple of times.
I had no fanaticism in this regard, although my child was incredibly long-awaited and beloved. Up to three years, I did not consider it necessary to spend money on branded and expensive children’s clothing.
You can say, well, how is it, after all, all the best for children? But I can not understand why children’s jeans, which took a maximum of half a meter of fabric, can cost more than my most elegant dress. In general, my first rule is: Do not buy baby things more than yourself.
But the child was growing up, and I realized that it was time for him to instill a sense of style and explain how to dress properly. I always give my son a choice of what to wear (within reason, of course), and explain what will be better for him and why.
Rule two. None of the most stylish outfit should not be uncomfortable for the baby. It is clear that a beautiful appearance is very important. But if, because of a smart dress or ironed shirt, a child cannot safely play on the playground, we must change these clothes. For walks in the yard we have one clothes, and for a quiet walk to the grocery store or to visit – is completely different.
Children are not reduced copies of adults., their clothes should be age appropriate. Here we are talking about styles, and fabrics, and colors. Strict jackets and black and white gamut they still have to wear, but in a more adult age.
School uniform is – there is no children’s fashion
Recently, a lot of talk about school uniforms, last year it was introduced in all schools in my city. The question is serious and difficult, but, honestly, I am opposed.
It seems to me that children will definitely not learn how to dress on their own and will not be able to develop their own style. If they have to wear the same clothes from childhood, how difficult it is for them to have to make their own choices when this need disappears and every day, standing in front of a paid wardrobe.
So, I believe that it is necessary to pay attention to its appearance from the very young age of the child, but without fanaticism and the bending of sticks. The formation of taste and sense of style begins in childhood, and it is necessary to inculcate a desire to wear fashionable and beautiful (but not necessarily expensive!) Clothes from an early age.
