Like most moms, I really enjoy dressing my kids. They are so many cute options these days, yes even for boys! 3+ years into being a mom, I have, however, become pickier about what I buy for my little boys.
Here is a short list of what I look for in little boys clothes:
- Easy to put on & take off – these days, I almost exclusively buy pants and shorts with elastic waistbands (even for my preschooler; actually especially for him an elastic waistband is a must-have with potty training). I also prefer shirts or onesies with snaps.
- Low cost per wear – Note I did not say cheap. In fact, most of the clothes I buy for my boys are not cheap (our favorite brands are Boden & Hanna Andersson). But I will happily pay a little more if they are able to wear the clothes longer, hold up in the wash, or .
- Cute – This is almost a must-have for me, and I am not ashamed to admit it. I like dressing my boys in cute clothes and buy things that I think are cute (I do occasionally buy a few neutral colored basics from Old Navy/ Baby Gap/ Carters, but I almost always mix and match them with something with a cute pattern).
