It doesn’t have to cost a lot of money to create fun and fashionable looks for your child. It just takes creativity and a little time for wonderful kids fashion. Here are some ideas to help your child look good and feel confident while they develop their own style.
Kids Fashion Without Breaking The Bank
Don’t put away those short-sleeved shirts when summer ends. Pull them out and wear them over long sleeve shirts and turtlenecks to create a fun, wintry look. A bright-colored scarf completes the outfit beautifully for girls.
Create a different hairdo for your daughter every day of the week. On Monday, she can wear braids with colorful bows on the ends. On Tuesday, pin those braids up into a fashionable updo. The next day you can try a ponytail with beaded barrettes holding back her bangs. Cute Girls Hairstyles offers many different tutorials and styles to choose from. Straight hair can be transformed into waves by starting the night before. Put your daughter’s hair in tight braids when it is damp. When she wakes up, she’ll be thrilled with her glamorous curls.Boys can create a number of different looks by using hair gels and mousse.
- Expanding Your Child’s Wardrobe
This doesn’t have to mean a trip to the mall. Instead, take your child to the thrift store. When the shirt he loves costs only a dollar, it’s easy to let him express his sense of style. You can also find many fun accessories for girls that don’t cost a fortune.
- Patches and Appliques
Purchase a plain pair of jeans and buy some iron-on patches as well. Allow your daughter to choose where the patches will go, and help her iron them on (add a stitch or two to hold them in place). No one else in her class will have those jeans. You can also add iron-ons to T-shirts and sweatshirts for a unique style for both boys and girls.
- Jazz up those solid color items
Your child may find her plain, unpatterned shirts to be boring. Encourage her to jazz them up with a scarf, pretty earrings or big necklace for a fresh, fashionable look.
- Make Your Own Jewelry
Jewelry doesn’t have to come just from the jewelry store. Visit thrift shops and get ready to go hunting. You might find a pretty silver chain with an ugly pendant. Throw away the pendant and shop for one you like. Many girls enjoy making their own jewelry using the Rainbow Loom or by using beads, wire and a needle-nose plier. This activity encourages creativity and allows them to design exactly what they want.
No matter the age of your kids, these tips will help you get started on giving your kids fashion options without breaking the bank.
