Nope, it’s not silly to gather inspiration for your toddler’s wardrobe. You’re just researching and doing it right! What style do you want your kid to have? Take your family’s lifestyle into consideration as well.
Shopping for kids clothing and putting together a stylish kids’ capsule wardrobe may feel a little bit out of your element, but I like to think of it as what I would do with my own wardrobe, just sized down. And that starts with having a color palette/scheme.
Based on what we use as a family of boys, here is a rough idea of how much of what you may need. Of course, it’s going to look different for everyone.
– 10-15 shirts (mix of play & nicer ones) – 2 pairs of jeans – 1-2 pairs of khakis or chinos – 5-7 play pants (joggers, cotton pants) – 5-7 shorts (mix of play & nicer ones) – 5-6 pairs of shoes (sandals, nice & play sneakers, rain boots, nice fall/winter boots) – 1-2 special occasion outfits – 3-5 outerwear choices (jacket, cardigan, coat, etc) – 2-3 sweaters

Everybody needs jeans and those aren’t exactly “stylish” as much as they are a staple, so just think about what would make a stylish piece for an adult, and find the kid version of that piece! Culottes and linen pants for a girl? Adorable. Twill joggers and chinos for a boy? Too cute!
