Guide to Changing Your Child’s Wardrobe for Autumn
The switch between seasons is always an exciting one but can also be accompanied by some not-so-fun challenges. Worried that your little one’s closet needs a total overhaul with colder weather headed your way? We’ve got good news for you! A few versatile pieces are the key to strategic styling through the seasons.
Here’s a closer look at several outfit tips — and fall clothes wardrobe pieces — aimed at seamlessly seeing you (and your youngster) through the shift from summer to fall.
Take Inventory of Your Child’s Seasonal Clothing
“Out of sight, out of mind” is absolutely the case when it comes to clothing. If you packed away your child’s winter and fall season clothes last spring, it’s time to bring out those boxes and take stock. As you unpack and sort, pay attention to what you have and what you need.
For kids, there are extra considerations: Will your child wear it and does it still fit? If the answer to either of these questions is “no,” it’s time to let it go.
Closet space is a commodity...so why clutter it with fall clothes that will never be worn? This aligns with one of our favorite tips for organizing your closet, which is filling it with comfortable, wearable, and beautiful clothing that you (and they) love.
Seek Out Fall Clothing Staples
We all have those pieces that we find ourselves returning to again and again. The same applies to kids! When combined with trendier pieces, these staples form the foundation for many timeless fall outfits.
Layer it Up
Fall weather is notoriously fickle. Layers ensure that your child will be equally as prepared for a late-September heat wave as they are when there’s a nip in the air.
Cardigan sweaters and intarsia pullovers are just-right layering pieces for early autumn. Not to mention that if you're looking for a gift for a child, a cute and cozy intarsia sweater — like our charming Intarsia Star Pullover — is sure to leave them with a smile.
As the weather grows cooler, heavier layers become appropriate. Our half-zips not only look great but offer wonderful warmth in October, November, and later winter months. Available in a variety of styles and colors, they’re a great grab-and-go piece for fall. A few of our favorite vintage-inspired half-zips for the fall 2021 season? Our classic Quilted Pullover, Pima Half Zip (in multiple colors), and jaunty Colorblock Half Zip.
Pull in Perfect Pieces
Another way to stretch your current wardrobe while also freshening it up? Supplement existing pieces with new ones.
Take our new Gold Blossom Collection, for example. Featuring classic fall clothes like the Hillard Blazer, Cashmere Blend Elbow Patch Pullover, Corduroy Faux Zip Pant, Bunny Coat, and Mouse Coat, it offers everything you need to pull together a chic fall wardrobe, including a first day of fall outfit and everyday essentials.
The arrival of fall doesn’t mean you need to upgrade your little one’s closet to an entirely new wardrobe. Instead, look at it as an opportunity to use their current pieces while also incorporating new ones that speak to both the season and your child’s unique fashion flair.To find the best vintage-inspired fall clothes and much more, shop bella bliss® today.
