Dressing boys can be fun – with celeb stylist Alissia Marciano
Who says boys are no fun to dress?!
Being a woman and a mom, I’ve always incorporated boyish elements into my code of dress. So when I became a mother to two boys, it was a thrill for me to be able to create cool boy looks and drape them on my lovable, little monkeys.
It can be challenging to find stylish duds for little men. I do find that there is a lack of good options when i walk into independent kids clothing boutiques.
For high street stores like Zara Kids, they do have quite a good array of options when it comes to basics – ie: your skinny black jean, lowered crotch jeans and nice thin cotton t-shirts. But when it comes to unique pieces to layer, it can seem like you have to search high and low before finding that perfect piece. Here are a few designers and pointers that will make your fashion hunt a lot easier.
- Remember not to shy away from fun patterns when dressing boys. Mix and match and have a blast – after all you’re only a kid once. (I think…)
- Kids can wear boy ties too! A nice way to dress up a boys look for a special occasion or dinner out is by choosing a bow tie with a playful pattern. I really like skulls on little boys. Check out the bow ties below. My favorite label is Les Gamins G&R. They are available online…get yours while they last!
- Just like for women shoes are also a hot accessories for boys. They add personality to any little ensemble. Vans are definitely my go-to, but check out AKID as well for some great styles.
- HAVE FUN – these petit munchkins won’t always let you style them so take advantage while you can!
