Too Cool For School: The Hipster Look

Posted by   + Show Post

I think kids, whether they are trying to fit in with their peers or trying to stand out from the crowd, are always searching for their own style. Mine are still (mostly) happy to wear what I set out for them every day, but that'll soon change, I'm sure.

One of the biggest trends the last couple of years is the hipster look. Liking or discovering things before they're actually "cool" to everyone else is a major distinction that sets hipsters apart from the rest, whether it's in music, art, clothing, or accessories. Because it's so trendy now (which I know makes true hipsters positively cringe inside), it's easy for kids to style themselves after these "cool characters".

Help your kids get the hipster look with the following pieces:

Skinny jeans: rolled up into peg legs or long with flats or knee-high boots, skinnies are everywhere, in all sizes and colors, for boys and girls.

Vintage tees: Truly vintage from a second-hand store or hand-me-down chain, or a vintage replica from your favorite store, kids can show off their interests with hip, worn tees.

Cardigans: Layered over everything (vintage-y dresses or blouses, those tees I just talked about, a button-up shirt), a long cardigan will keep your kid cozy and cool.

Accessories: thick-rimmed glasses with a prescription or just as a charm on a necklace, scarves that complement but clash just enough with an outfit (same color family but different patterns, or vice versa), head bands, retro sneakers, and even pocket watches all lend a unique touch to your child's outfit.

Dark tights with flats: Combined with a dress and a cardigan or a blouse and shorts, it's a go-to look for a little girl with a lot of style flair.

Keep the look sleek and layered, and your little hipster will look positively adorable.

Do you have any little hipsters in your family?

My dd is two so she wears whatever we get. I do usually give her two outfit options for her to choose from, but she has no idea about different styles. And my ds is almost five months so he just goes with the baby flow :)

Mine are still too little yet and don't really have a style.  Just jeans and t-shirts.
