5 Tips for dressing your kid in style

With Wittlebee, you receive a shipment with six different products based on your child’s gender, age, style and color preference that’s picked out by stylists every month.

As a parent, sometimes it’s all you can do to make sure your kid’s clothing is clean, let alone fashionable. But sometimes your little one deserves to look his or her best. So we asked the stylists at Wittlebee, an online service that sends members a box of specially curated kids’ clothing for $40 a month, for their tips on how to turn your child into your most stylish accessory.

Pick colors that work for their skin tones.
What colors look best on them? What washes them out? What colors bring out their eyes?

Invest in quality items.
No one wants to spend a fortune on expensive baby items when turnover is so high. But the best kids’ wardrobes have a mix of moderately priced items, as well as several quality pieces. Then you can feel confident you’ll always have something on hand for a fancy event or just a walk to the school bus.

Don’t forget comfort.
Look at their body shape and think about what they should wear that is most comfortable for them. For example, leggings are best for babies who have chubby legs and overalls are better for those who have bellies so that their waists won’t get pinched.

Add some flair to  basics to make a statement.
You don’t have to buy a crazy, zigzag patterned dress to make your little one stand out. Instead, go for a more elegant, blue pinstriped dress. If it’s chilly out, you can layer this with a tiny cardigan and solid leggings.

Dress your kids according to their personalities.
If you have an outgoing and fun child, go with bright colors and bold patterns. If they are more subdued and calm, maybe even a bit shy, it might be best to steer away from bold patterns. Don’t worry:?You can add subtle flair with texture and a great, classic color palette.
