The Capsule wardrobe
So, what is a capsule wardrobe? A collection of essential, staple pieces in coordinating colours that can all be mixed and matched together to maximize their use (and minimize your spending!) Sounds genius, right?
When it comes to your baby’s wardrobe, you’ll soon find out it’s all about practicality. We’ve outlined some guidelines to help you create a capsule wardrobe for your baby that will be the most useful.
P.S. Don’t worry those cutsie outfits you splurged that one time, you’ll still be able to incorporate them into this capsule.
Choose soft neutral colours
You’re going to want to stick to an easy colour palette that will allow you to interchange pieces, mix and match, and maximize the outfit coordination.
Also, when you opt for gender neutral styles and colors, like this heather grey onesie for example, you grow the possibilities for hand me downs (you never know what the next one will be!) Try these simple and versatile styles that will no doubt be the foundation pieces of your baby’s wardrobe: the Everyday Essentials.
Pick items your baby will be able to grow into
“They grow so fast,” everyone says. Yes, they do. And they often grow out of clothing faster than you can buy it. So, when you come across Grow with me items you like, stock up and run.
These Essential Grow With Me Pants feature an extendable waistband that first protect your newborn’s brand-new belly-button and later can be rolled down for added comfort as your baby grows. Similarly, the cuffs at the bottom of the leg openings also extend as your baby grows which gives you longer wearability.
Look at the composition
Less is definitely more in this case. The better-quality garments you choose, the more you will get out of them.
The whole Essentials Collection, for example, are made from a combination of organically grown cotton with elastane. The Organically Grown cotton is some of the softest available and is naturally breathable. The yarn has been specially combed to remove all but the finest and longest fibers. This process ensures your garment always stays soft and even with no protruding threads.
Furthermore, the elastane allows for more stretch in the garment. This results in greater freedom of movement for your child to play, wiggle and crawl and the garment will return to its original fit and form even after countless washes.
