Parents buying clothes for children who are just learning how to walk, want items that can stand up to constant activity as the small one is exploring the world. The clothes should allow full range of movement without binding. Children at this age are not growing quite as fast as they were when they were infants. It is worth buying toddler clothing slightly larger than the child needs to allow for some room to grow.
Short sleeve cotton t-shirts are always suitable for warm weather play dates indoors and out. Long sleeves provide enough protection for when the sun goes down. Printed designs and cap or ruffled sleeves add style to the average tee. For children of this age, parents should avoid any embellishments that can fall off the shirt and become a choking hazard.
Leggings made of material that stretches makes it easy for parents to dress an active child. Leggings come in a range of colours to suit any season and look good when worn with with a t-shirt, tunic or strap top with ties at the shoulders. Denim jeans are versatile and are available with or without decorative embroidery on the pockets.
Manufacturers offer many options for dressing up little girls for holidays, weddings and other special occasions. A frilly floral print dress with a satin waistband is ideal for summertime. A trendy bubble dress or sundress with a whimsical print and ruffles along the hemline makes the perfect attire for a birthday party.
When shopping for young boys, denim jeans are always a classic choice. Durable cotton jeans are machine washable and come with front and back pockets just like the adult version. Jeans are available in distressed or regular styles and with straight legs and an adjustable waist for a snug fit.
For summer playtime and visits to the park, parents can dress little boys in denim or cargo shorts and a simple t-shirt. Dress shirts for more formal occasions feature long sleeves and collars. Design options include solid colours, stripes and prints.
Overalls are equally suitable for little boys and girls at play. Denim or coloured cotton styles go anywhere and designs with cuffs and adjustable straps will grow with the child through the season. Kids can wear overalls in the spring or summer with a simple short sleeve t-shirt. Replace the short sleeve tee with long sleeves or a hoodie when the weather cools down.
Parents should pay special attention when buying sleepwear for toddlers. Two-piece sets made of soft cotton should be loose enough for comfort but snug enough the clothes cannot twist around the neck if the child moves around while sleeping. Short pajama pants offer a cooler sleepwear option for the summer.
Parents shopping for toddler clothing will find a variety of styles to suit any season or occasion. Little Red Closet offers trendy fashions made of durable materials that are stain resistant and easy to wash. You can find affordable fashions that will keep up with the needs of any active child.
