Boys Easter Clothing

Thursday, March 10th, 2011

The smaller your children are, the easier it is to convince them to dress up.  As they get older, particularly the boys may start to give you a hard time about getting in a suit so it’s good to make it a tradition.  Easter is one of those great holidays where many people still put on their dress clothes.  There are tons of girls Easter dresses to choose from, but boys have fewer options.  A classic look that has come back into style is this four piece boys suit that includes the pants, shirt, vest, and tie.


Colorful shirts are very fashionable right now with turquoise, fuchsia, and purple being the most popular.  For Easter and spring you will find lavender, pink, yellow, sage, and periwinkle also top the list.  Clip on ties are a life saver for young boys.  They don’t feel tight around the neck and you don’t have to worrying about tying them.  Elastic in the back of the waist makes the pants flexible.

If you want a more casual look you can pair a dress shirt and tie combination with a nice pair of dress pants.  These two will make a handsome outfit.


And don’t forget the feet!  A nice pair of dress socks and shoes will complete the outfit.  Choose 100% nylon socks for the dressiest look.  You want to make sure the socks are thin and will fit well inside dress shoes.  Never try to shove athletic socks into a dress shoe!  A new pair is best so there are no holes when he inevitably kicks off his shoes.


It always a good idea to have your child help you pick the outfit.  Narrow it down to a few selections that you like and then let the child make the final decision.  Or choose one outfit and let him pick the color.  You want it to be a happy day for everyone!

Easter Is Coming, Time To Dress Up

Friday, February 25th, 2011

Little girls love playing dress up and there is no better time for fancy outfits than Easter! You can help make your daughter feel like a princess with so many Easter dresses to choose from. You can complete the outfit with fancy socks or tights, a cute sweater, nice shoes, and even a hat. Dress styles range from casual to formal. Having your little girl help you pick out the dress will be a fun experience for both of you and make her feel special for the holiday.

Some appropriate traits for Easter dresses:

Sleeve length: Sleeveless, cap sleeve, short sleeve, long sleeve
Dress length: Above the knee, knee length, tea length
Color: Pattern, solid color, pastels, bright colors
Features: Sashes, bows, flowers, ribbon

Dressing up for Easter can be such a fun experience for a little girl and will make the day even more special. Consider some nice age appropriate jewelry for the occasion.  A necklace or bracelet will complete the outfit.  And don’t forget about he hair.  You can style it up with a bow, a cute headband, or flower clips.

Make sure your little girl will be comfortable in the dress and that it fits properly.  If your child is between sizes, choose the larger size.  You can use a cute hair clip to cinch the dress in the back if it is a little baggy.  Also be sure the length is long enough so it still covers when she is bending over to pick up Easter eggs.  And don’t forget to take lots of pictures!
