Kids Formal Wear


It’s picture day at school and you want your child to have nice clothes, nice hair, and a nice smile. You want to be able to send out that photo to all of your relatives, even your sister who is always trying to outdo you, and you want that picture to demonstrate that you have a healthy, lovely, smiling, well dressed little angel. Or a beloved family member is getting married, and your kids are invited to the ceremony and the reception. Perhaps your kids have to go to a funeral, which is obviously much more unfortunate than a wedding. This is just a short, obvious list of the formal events that a child might be obligated to attend. There are many, many different formal events where a child would need to have formal wear.

Kids formal wear is not unlike adult formal wear. Dresses that are the appropriate length with the appropriate patterns are necessary for formal wear. Jackets and little ties, even clip-on ties, and of course, the appropriate shoes. Childrens formal wear ranges in price, like all clothing does. But it tends to be more expensive than the more casual play clothes. But on the other hand, formal wear will probably last longer, because it is only worn on certain, rare occasions.

Childrens formal wear is mainly available anywhere that sells any children’s clothes. Sometimes childrens formal wear will be on sale or on special clearance. That will help people afford the nicer formal wear, but formal wear doesn’t have to expensive in order to be appropriate.

Baby Clothes

Babies basically need three types of clothing. They need clothes to play in or daytime clothes, nightwear and clothes to go out in.

You should also keep in mind when buying for a baby, that spending a lot of money does not make a whole lot of sense, since babies outgrow clothing very quickly, especially in the early months. In the early months of a baby’s life, the most important clothing is sleepwear, so it’s wise to invest most of your money nightgowns, bodysuits and pajamas with feet.

The next supply should be comfortable daywear that includes anything that baby can wear around the house and get messy. These can include Onesies that are one-piece baby wear and little one-piece slip on baby outfits.

Outdoor wear for baby can really be broken down into two categories – outdoor play wear and dress up. Outdoor playwear should consist of (depending on the season) t-shirts, shorts, jeans, light jackets and sweaters. For special occasions like holidays or birthday parties, one or two dress up outfits are appropriate, but as mentioned, babies outgrow these outfits quickly, and of all baby clothing available, dress up clothes are by far the most expensive.

A couple of pretty, frilly dresses for a baby girl, and a white shirt, tie and black pants for a baby boy will have everyone telling you how adorable they are.

When buying clothing for baby, be practical, and don’t spend money on outfits that will hang in the closet and probably never be worn.
