Summer vacations can mean endless fun for the kids, but not so much for moms!
The little monkeys are like bursts of energy, looking for trouble all day long. Bet your (or your nearest!) little one could interrupt you a gazillion times before you finish reading this post.
Add summer weather to the equation, and moms are looking at a hot mess on top of it all! We get the drift. Summers can be harsh on your precious. The key is to dress them right to face the weather, sans the screaming and whining. But, how would you blend suitable dressing with a dose of learning for your fashion-forward wonders?
Here are a few ideas to make dressing-up much more fun for the little monsters, this summer.
CLOSE TO NATURE/EARTHY TONES
Staying close to nature is in the nature of the kids. Here are some easy ways to bring that into their clothing – Earthy tones are a big hit this season and are sure to fascinate your little one. Dress them up in olives, browns or khaki tones camouflaging with elements of the Mother Nature. Anything to make them appear less dirty works, we say!
GO TROPICAL AND LEND A MESSAGE LITTLE ONE
Also consider tropical prints and perhaps an extra message on sustainable living – How to save water, grow your own food, saving power etc. – through their clothing. They can proudly share their learnings with friends in their pottery, printmaking, DIY classes, through slogan tees and calming prints. Tropical print jumpers or dresses for girls, and tees or overall sets for the boys could lend the best season vibe.
STAY ACTIVE AND FREE
Even though vacations ideally call for all-day rests for most of us, the exact opposite is true for the little ones. From fun camps to outdoor sports, they are constantly out in the sun, sweating it out. When the busy bees have so much to accomplish, consider breezy silhouettes and active clothing to keep them free and equipped. Tank tops paired with joggers, shorts or leggings work well
KEEP IT COOL WITH PASTELS
Is your little pudding a candy fan? Then take a break from loud shades and dress your marshmallow in pastels. Go for candy hues as they are soothing to the eyes and win a perfect settlement with summer. Try jackets, shorts, dresses and even caps in these shades to keep him/her cool and looking cute as a button.
A bunch of kids around is always a party. Unleash their glam goodness on such occasions with sporty, embellished clothing, tailored suits or dresses that make them shine like little stars. All that glitters can truly be gold this time around and it sure would be a sight to see your little divas owning the trend.
Summer holidays are a big event in a kid’s lifetime. They are the perfect time to bond with your little devils and have much fun on the sidelines! Make the most out of these golden days with your junior and let us know all about it in your comments!
