If you’re looking to increase the size of your little girl’s wardrobe without breaking your budget, consider investing in a few essential pieces. Fun spring outfits are just a few dollars away when you plan wisely and shop carefully.
Every well dressed junior fashionista needs a few girls spring dresses. Buy them just a little big so she has room to grow, and don’t forget the leggings and tights to go under. It is only spring after all, and those first few weeks can be downright chilly.
Go with short sleeves for spring, but make sure you have one or two nice cardigans or hoodies to supplement those cool mornings. Buying kids spring clothes can be tricky as far as the temperatures are concerned. But once things begin to warm up, it’s cheaper to tuck two little sweaters into the back of the closet than it is an abundance of long sleeved tops.
Shorts, skorts and skirts are the things spring wardrobes are made of. Buy plenty of these so you can switch them out accordingly. If you have three-to-five nice bottoms and tops that coordinate with each, it’s relatively easy to get through an entire spring with only those few essential pieces, along with the accessories, of course.
One pair of sandals, one pair of little girl’s dress shoes, a pair of thongs for the beach or the pool, a pair of water shoes and one good, sturdy set of slip-on canvas shoes should get your girl all the way through summer and right into fall. Add in a pair of athletic shoes if your child has a penchant for sports.
Accessories are just as important to girls as they are to moms. Headbands, barrettes, flower clips, bracelets and trendy socks or leg warmers are all essential elements this spring. Choose your accessories to echo the colors in your daughter’s wardrobe to create complete fun spring outfits.
Shopping for little girls is always a fun experience. Take advantage of this fleeting time to help influence your daughter’s future fashion decisions. One day soon, she’ll develop her own taste in what she does and doesn’t want to wear. If you start early teaching her about quality fabrics and brands, she’ll carry that knowledge with her throughout her life.
