Let’s face it: Kids today have a lot of clothes. There are more children’s clothing brands than you can shake a stick at, all offering a huge array of fancy formal wear and shirts emblazoned with the latest cartoon characters. It can be easy to get overwhelmed by the variety. In this post, we thought we’d get back to basics with some of our favorite simple clothes for boys and girls. These playtime clothes are durable, easy to wash, and guaranteed to keep up with your little one’s adventures. Read on for more!
For boys, it’s a good idea to invest in some versatile clothes that can be changed out or reversed easily in case of dirt or grass stains. Mayoral has a good solution with their reversible windbreaker. One side is bright arugula green polyester, while the reverse side is a textured gray cotton that’s more understated, but equally cute. Mayoral also carries some great quality socks in sets of three, which means you’ll always have a backup in case he goes splashing through puddles right before you go somewhere important.
Shoes are equally important in keeping your little one’s feet safe, whether they’re taking their first wobbly steps on the back lawn or careening headfirst around the playground. Mayoral’s kids fashion from Spain comes to the rescue with their new sports shoes in chilli. Pair them with a set of practical bermuda shorts for a look that will carry him from the park to a birthday party with ease.
Little girls might be made of sugar and spice, but that’s no reason for their play clothes to be so sweet and ruffly that they can’t get up to any real play. There are plenty of options for little girl clothing that are as practical as they are pretty. Like Kickee Pants’ short sleeve swing dresses made of 95% viscose from bamboo fabric and 5% of lycra. Kickee Pants is a leader in bamboo baby clothes, and for good reason: their fabric is naturally hypoallergenic, stretchy and breathable enough to keep her comfy on the hottest days. These dresses also come in a huge variety of prints and colors; even more so now that Kickee Pants is re-releasing some of their most popular prints from past years as part of the brand’s 10th birthday celebration. Who can resist these cute styles! Read more about the re-release here.
If your little girl needs more leg protection or just prefers pants over skirts, try this adorable gingham leggings set from Mayoral. The cotton and elastane fabric will bend and stretch with her all across the jungle gym, and the watercolor style flowers on the t shirt add just enough girly flair. Finish with a pair of sturdy and smell-resistant PVC shoes from Mini Melissa for the perfect summer fun getup!
The trouble with buying new clothes for small kids is that they grow so quickly. Maybe you’re looking for clothes that can be easily passed down from one child to another, regardless of gender. In that case, Huxbaby’s gender neutral urban kidswear has you and your little ones covered. We recommend the comfort of Huxbaby drop crotch shorts, or pants if chilly weather or skinned knees are an issue. Pair with a simple striped tank or drop back bear T shirt for an effortlessly cool look.
