There has been a trend in the fashion world, where clothing for toddler girls often has them looking like mini versions of older women. When it comes to spring/summer fashions for pre-school girls, keeping it simple often works best.
I believe young ladies should wear styles that capture their youth, not those which cause them to look much older than their years. You don’t have to spend a lot of money for your little cutie to look like a living doll. Dollar Tree, and Family Dollar have those adorable fashions for little girls that never go out of style.
Cotton sleeveless tops with stripes and polka dots, denim capri shorts, and a pair of sandals are always in style. Add a pair of sunglasses style hair in a pony tail and your baby is good to go. Throw in a hat for good measure and the wardrobe is complete.
Spaghetti straps, low rider pants, and midriff bearing tops are more suited for teenagers. In this day and age of sexual exploitation, kiddie porn, and pedophiles, no parent should want to send the wrong message, where their child is concerned.
On the other hand growing pre-schoolers should not be dressed like over grown babies. Light cotton dresses will keep your child cool during hot summer months. Adding bows and ribbons may over do it for some, but this s a personal choice.
Old Navy, Toys R Us, and J C Penny have really cute little girl clothing. Macy’s offers stylish prints in sundresses. Make sure to purchase plenty of solid colors because they can be mixed and matched to make additional outfits. When your toddler has outgrown her clothing, if in good condition you may be able to trade the items in at Once Upon a Child, for more outfits, or simply get cash to spend elsewhere.
