All four of my kids have their own style. The youngest is 19 months old, so his style is still my style. But the other three (ages 3, 5, and 7) already have very strong opinions about what they like (and don't like) to wear.
My son, the seven year old, is in first grade. He is a little man with a BIG imagination. He loves to have everyone's attention, to make announcements to the class, to tell and act out stories and scenarios.
I'm not sure he's ever asked for a piece of clothing because someone else was wearing it. Not anyone in his class, anyway. He loves to dress up like a "businessman" or a "rock star". He's worn a button-up shirt and tie several times, to school, for no other reason than he wanted to "look fancy".
I love that about him. I love that he's not scared of looking different (because goodness knows, he's the only one wearing a tie in first grade), or marching to his own drum.
But when I try to get him to the wear the shirt and tie for a Grandparents' Day performance? Oh, no. He'll wear the shirt, unbuttoned with a tee underneath. No matter how many times I ask "are you sure you don't want to wear your tie today? It would look really nice when everyone was there to see you!", if he's not feeling it that day, it's not going to happen.
Most days I can lay out his clothes for school and he's completely fine with it. But when he has a notion that that day, he needs to look a certain way? There's no changing his mind. And I'm completely fine with that. Kids these days can only express themselves in certain ways, and their style is one excellent way to do that.
Do your kids prefer to blend in or stand out with their style choices?
