Tips to Dress your Children for Special Occasions


So it’s time to dress your child for a special occasion but you have no idea where to start. Here we’ll share a few tips with you on how to get your little one dressed beautifully and be the belle of the ball.

  1. Consider the age of your child

This is extremely important when dressing little ones up for special occasions. If you’ve got a toddler that’s bounding with energy you need to make sure that they won’t be tripping on their clothes so a shorter dress would be more suitable like the Nelly Stella Light Pink silk dress. If you have a baby then you can go for a longer dress like the Baby Graziella layered polka dot sleeveless dress. If your child is older, then you can choose from any type of dress that fits the occasion. For boys it is much easier as you can get them a smart shirt like the Nanos striped shirt and some formal pants.


  1. Consider Quality

Whatever outfit you decide to buy, make sure that it is great quality that will last and that you can even pass down to other children. Also consider buying a slightly bigger size so that you will get the most wear out of the outfit.


  1. Consider Comfort and Practicalities

The outfit that you choose should be comfortable for your child to wear with soft materials that won’t scratch their skin. If you’ve got a baby, also make sure that it will be easy to get them in and out of the outfit for nappy changes or other accidents that might occur.


  1. Look for Classic Outfits

Instead of following the latest fashion trends, look for classic styles and colours that will last beyond one season.  You might want to buy a yellow dress or outfit as it’s in for the season, but you might find that you’ll be unhappy with it later on. Consider the outfit beyond just one day and how you can make sure that it lasts for a while. Lighter colours are always a good bet as they photograph well and won’t dominate pictures and take away from the young little star of the show.


  1. Consider the setting

Take into account whether it’s an outdoor or indoor event and be prepared for the weather. If it’s an outdoor event, then you might need to buy a cardigan or a jacket or coat. Again, look for a classic style that can be worn with other outfits as well but will keep your little one warm and cosy.


  1. Consider Accessories

Accessories aren’t just for adults. A gorgeous bow or a smart tie can take any outfit to the next level.


  1. Shop at the right time

Kids regularly go through growth spurts, so try and buy as close to the occasion as possible so you don’t land up with something that doesn’t fit, and as we said earlier go for a slightly bigger size so that it lasts.
