4 Fun & On-trend ideas for dressing your baby boy this summer by Amelia Cunningham.

Do you find yourself scanning the rails on the high street and seeing a variety of lovely clothes for little girls but hardly anything for boys? If yes, you’re not the only one.

More often than not, there seems to be a wonderful display of different options to dress your little girl in, but when it comes to boys’ stuff, the high street lacks choice and even originality.

If you are feeling uninspired with what your local shops have to offer, we may have just what you’re looking for.

We have compiled a list of four ideas to spruce up your little man’s summer wardrobe, all at affordable prices and of course, bang on trend!

Add in palm prints

It can be really hard to find fashionable prints on children’s clothing, as high street stores seem to struggle replicating what’s on-trend for adults in their clothing range for kids.

Choosing clothing with fun and bold prints will brighten up any outfit this summer. Consider a palm tree print on this wardrobe essential that really celebrates this seasonal staple.

STYLE TIP:

You don’t want to take anything away from this print so you could try opting for plain, basic bottoms to really glorify the summery palm print on the shirt.


Have fun with slogan tees

Plain white t-shirts featuring bold text across the front are all the rage right now and your little one could make their very own statement too with our OBD Clothing range.

In 100% organic cotton, they are a comfortable and lightweight option for the summer months.

Here are our top two picks to style your baby boy this summer:

 

Ladies Man T-Shirt

 

Up All Night Sleep All Day T-Shirt

STYLE TIP:

For monochrome slogan tee’s, opt for plain (or at least with a very simple design) style bottoms in either black or white. Matching it with busy trousers or shorts, the slogan tee may get a bit lost; plain black or white bottoms will really draw attention to the t-shirt. If the slogan tee is a bold and bright colour, still opt for a plain style bottom but you can match the colours accordingly.


Try matching sets

2 piece sets are an easy and comfortable outfit choice for your baby boy this summer. Ever have those mornings where you are just unsure on how to complete their outfit? Adding a matching set to your little one’s wardrobe will give you a ready made outfit to dress him in when you’re struggling to complete an outfit!


Boys Shorts Set

STYLE TIP:

Try to follow through the matching theme with the accessories you choose to add to the outfit. For example, ensure the shoes go well, and even their hat!


Style them in dungarees

Dungarees are a practical must-have for your child’s wardrobe. They are easy to get on and are a comfortable choice, suitable for a smart occasion or just a day at the park. Long or short, both are a great option for summer and can be styled easily with plain or fun prints.

STYLE TIP:

Long dungarees can be layered on top of a t-shirt on those cooler summer days, while short dungarees make a perfect choice for warmer weather as they can be worn with a vest or t-shirt. If you have a special occasion you could style with a smart white shirt underneath.
