The easiest way to make the most of your child's wardrobe is to keep things simple. Make sure they have plenty of basic elements and a few things that can dress up or dress down an outfit. Sweaters go a long way to giving an outfit a dressy feel, while a simple turtleneck underneath a button down shirt gives a similar effect.

At the end of the day, kids like to be comfortable in their clothes. Keep their outfits simple and it will go a long way to keeping them comfy.

Do your kids ever complain about having to get dressed up or about an outfit being uncomfortable? What are some of your kids' most comfy outfits?

No, my dd isn't much of a complainer.  Sometimes she gets overheated in fleece though.

My boys will protest about dress clothes.  But if I'm wanting them to wear dress clothes, they don't have much choice in the matter. Thankfully, they usually go along with it after protesting for a little bit.

My kids are most comfortable in jeans and a t-shirt.

Mads always dying for a chance to get dressed up, the fancier the better. For Dom anything past jeans and a tshirt comes with an eye roll!

 She does not complain.  She hates turtlenecks so I never buy her any.  I know pretty much what she is comfortable in so we stick with those things.  We do lots of mix and match to so she can just grab something in the morning and she always looks cute and comfortable at the same time.

Most of her clothes are pretty comfy and she loves dressing up. She does complain about having to wear warm clothes because they make her sweaty.
