When it comes to dressing the smallies, it’s important to allow kids to be kids. So, he wants to wear his dinosaur costume. How about a compromise? Playing dress-up needn’t be the sole remit of parties and Halloween.
KEEP IT KID-FRIENDLY: Ensure playfulness and practicality get equal billing. Elastic waistbands, soft edges, easy zip toggles and big buttons make getting into character easier.
COLOUR ME HAPPY: Warm hues like yellow and orange promote happiness and vitality; while green and blue are calming. Adjust colour choices according to your child’s personality.
FUTURE FORECASTING: Allow for growth spurts with stretchy fabrics and adjustable waists. If in doubt, go a size up in trousers, tops and jackets, adjusting with belts and temporary cuffs where necessary.
