Accessorize Your Way Through Fall

Posted by   + Show Post

Part of the fun of dressing for fall is the ability to accessorize with cute socks, gloves and hats. After all, the accessories that we choose can make our break our own outfits - and it's no different for our children. The addition of accessories can help your child fit in, help them stretch their wardrobe, and help bring last season's fashions forward into the current times. 

Here are some tried and true ways to help your child accessorize their wardrobe and feel confident about their choices!

  • Socks - Socks are an inexpensive and fun way to jazz up an outfit. Buy your child socks that are striped, dotted or plaid - funky socks can be a slight yet delightful way to express your child's individuality.
  • Hats - From berets to baseball caps, beanies to stocking caps, there's a hat for every person and every occasion. Winter hats for this upcoming season are an especially sharp way to keep your child's ears and head warm. 
  • Gloves - Gloves are the bane of my winter existence. My kids lose one, keep track of the other, and even using the tried and true "idiot mitten" method often results in a mismatched glove scenario. One thing I've learned - if I'm sending my kids out into the wet weather, it's never a good idea to let them wear cheap, non waterproof gloves. The complaints of cold hands just aren't worth it.
  • Jewelry - What little girl doesn't love a necklace, bracelet or sassy pair of earrings? A long strand of fake pearls can dress up the most simple of dresses, and there are some cute fall themed necklaces that can be the talk of the town!
  • Jackets - Pea coats, trench coats or polar fleece jackets - the choice is yours. Offered in bright colors, plaids or dots, there's a coat for everyone that will provide the polish and finish that your child will need to complete their outfit.
  • Boots - My 10 year old daughter is such a nut for boots that I've finally had to cut her off. She's got booties, black high boots, brown high boots, cowboy boots, thigh high boots - the list goes on and on.

What are some ways that you help your child accessorize their outfits for fall?

My sons didn't care about accessories when they were younger. When they were older, one was interested in the look of suspenders, but then didn't want to bother.

We have a whole bag full of winter hats and gloves of all different colors and designs that they can choose from each day. 

That sounds fun!  My girls would love that!

 Eh, I have boys.  I try to get them to match and that's it.

We don't really accessorize.
