The Cutest Toddler Boy Capsule Wardrobe For Fall

Though it may seem a little silly to some, a capsule wardrobe for an adult is no different than a capsule wardrobe for a baby/toddler. You have your key essential pieces that can be mixed and matched with everything in your closet. This reduces impulse buys and last-minute stressful shopping trips because you find out you need something that you don’t have!

Shortly after finding out I was having a boy, I started freaking out because I didn’t know about boy fashion. What looks good? What’s cool in the guy world? Yes, birth and labor fears did come later. πŸ˜‰

Then, I realized, there’s nothing to be scared of (for both things). Dressing a boy is not all that different than how I would dress me! With a more masculine spin of course. Motorcycle jackets? Yep. Boots? Yep. Skinny jeans, hats, and layers? Yep, yep, and yep!

I don’t know about you, but I love to shop more for my kid than I even do for me! I didn’t know that was possible. Man, this is what people must mean when they say motherhood changes you πŸ˜‰

Usually, in a capsule wardrobe, you spend more because you’re buying less, but when it comes to clothes for babies and toddlers I am in favor of investing at the moment because…kids haha. I’m okay with going cheaper in these areas. Gucci shoes? Fuhgeddaboutit. I’m linking to some similar items that are around $20 or less.

OUTERWEAR

green jacket
As you ladies know, a green jacket is the epitome of fall! Though the anorak type might be a bit too girly for boys, bombers or canvas style jackets work great for them.

motorcycle jacket
What could be cuter than a kid in a motorcycle jacket? Go ahead and try to think. Waiting! I love how cute and tough little guys look in these.

cardigan
I for one love cardigans on guys and though I’m still trying to get my husband to wear one, I do have control over what my toddler wears. πŸ˜‰ Still deciding on a few though!

vest
Not a total necessity, but it works great as a layering piece either over sweaters or under jackets!

TOPS

plaid button-down
What says fall more than a plaid shirt? Not much! Well, maybe everyone posting their #PSL on the gram, but that’s about it! This can be worn by itself, open over a tee, layered under a moto jacket, or tied around the waist!

sweater
It’s #sweaterweather! Let’s see how many fall cliches I can fit into this post!
Don’t really need much of an explanation on how to wear a sweater- looks great worn by itself with jeans or with casual joggers for a cool contrast.

basic tee
No wardrobe is complete without the basic tees. They can go under cardigans, jackets, or be layered under an open button-down. Or look really good on their own because hello, #basicisawesome!

BOTTOMS

joggers
I think joggers are sometimes cooler than normal pants. They just have that cool edge! Whether the joggers are a jogger style chino or cool sweatpants, They can be worn casually with a tee and they look oh so cool when you throw a moto jacket over it!

skinny/straight jeans
Thankfully, boys don’t need tons of bottoms. A couple of styles will do just fine and you can just wear them again and again. Skinny/straight jeans will be your go-to staple! I like a slimmer leg but I’m not into Jonas Brother skinny though!

SHOES

boots
Boots look great with both skinny jeans and joggers and well, go with everything!

sneakers
Little kids don’t need a lot of shoes (unlike me πŸ˜‰ ) so boots and sneakers will do just fine. It doesn’t matter which pair, but try to get shoes in both black & brown so you have something to go with everything!

EXTRAS

socks
Why go basic with socks when you can add a fun little punch?

beanie
A kid has got to stay warm, right? So why not stay warm in a cool hat that adds some street cred?!

scarf
So European! Plus, it’s practical too, so what’s not to love?

I can usually find what I’m looking for at my local consignment stores, but Amazon and H&M are always winners, as well as Zara and Target! Or you can always follow the links in this post. But I haven’t tried everything, so read reviews first!
