6 Easy Back to School Capsule Wardrobe Tips!

It’s almost time for back to school and those fall mornings will be cool, but afternoon temperatures can fluctuate between 10℃ and 15℃. Inside school can get warm with all those bodies and the furnace running. So focusing on layering will help your kids stay comfortable all day long!

  1. Socks

Let’s start first with the feet and some cotton (organic if possible) socks. Cotton is a soft, breathable and a non-irritating natural fiber. It allows little feet to breathe, and move comfortably.

  1. T-shirts

Second, the kids will need some  100% cotton (organic if possible) short sleeve t-shirts. Again we want that soft breathable cotton, with fun prints to allow our kids to express themselves. A good Tee will allow them to move freely and stretches slightly with wear.

  1. Zip-up

Fifth we need those outer layers that keep their chests warm and cozy when outdoors. A soft zip-up sweater under a softshell jacket are layers that will protect from the cold and wind. As the day warms up, they can easily remove them.

  1. Head Wear

Finally, top it all off with a nice stretchy beanie, for those chilly mornings or days when we don’t want to fight about brushing their hair. Cute headwear will add style and individuality to their sweet little outfits.

And that’s a wrap! Aside from fashion, dressing for their environment protects little bodies and their core temperature. During the Fall, it is important to dress your kids in 100% cotton layers so they can make the most out of each day, and can learn comfortably! And don’t forget to support local whenever you can.
