You never realize how much you could actually enjoy clothes shopping for, until you have to go shopping for a baby. Really, it doesn’t matter if your baby is a girl, or a boy; the younger they are, the more fun it is to shop for them.
But if you are someone who likes to dress different, and shine above the rest; then no doubt, you’d want your baby’s clothing to be extraordinary as well. Here are our expert’s ideas on how to dress your baby uniquely.
Avoid the popular storesYou know that one baby shop in town that everyone loves to shop at? That’s the place you should avoid the most! It’s true that places like that can save you a lot of time, and would definitely have cute clothing for your baby. But if it’s the place that everyone including your neighbor shops at, chances are that your baby’s clothes may not be as unique as you want. Try to hit those shops that no one goes to. Remember, children grow pretty fast. While the quality of the clothes is important, especially with newborn baby clothes, it shouldn’t be an issue to wear it for longer.
Opt to sew your ownAre you handy with the sewing machine? Or do you know a seamstress who understands your tastes. If it’s a yes for either of the questions, then opting to get your baby’s clothes sewed is definitely a good idea when it comes to dressing your baby uniquely. Dresses for baby girls especially can be fun to design. So, take out your drawing pads, and let loose your inner designer! Trust us, some of the ideas that you’d come out with will be so much better than those designs you find on the racks.
Have it customized In the case of newborns, getting them especially stitched for them can feel like such a waste of time and money, as they grow out so fast. In cases like this, consider simply customizing your store-bought clothes to give it a unique twist. Your baby’s name is an obvious tip for customizing his clothes. But apart from the name, you could also customize the clothes using “family quotes” or jokes that only your “inner circle” of friends would understand.
Age appropriate or not?In our humble opinion, kids (the younger the cuter!) look simply adorable when they’re dress “age inappropriately”. Yes, this could look bad on older kids; but we’re talking about infants and toddlers. Dress her up in something sexy, or dress him so he looks like a cute old man. Of course, this can be a little hard to handle for an everyday look; but will be perfect for dressing up for a special occasion!
