“The tween wardrobe doesn’t need much. Just some basics, flexibility, and a lot of detergent.” ~ Yana B.
Basics. The foundation of a tween wardrobe – tee shirts, jeans, and usually converse/KDs/Jordan sneakers and a hoodie if you can convince them that it’s chilly enough for one. Or in some cases you can’t tear the tattered hoodie away just to wash it even on 80 degree days, so always have detergent on hand so you can wash it while they sleep. Basics are considered just that – basic. The wonderful thing about these sometimes boring but always fundamental pieces is that there will never be a time of “I don’t have anything to wear”. Well there will be, but not like everyday. As long as there is an option for a pair of jeans and a clean tee you can never go wrong, and that’s a fact for a wardrobe in 1978 or 2016, ages 0 – 78. It’s a fact. It just is. So run with it. ♥
White tees, blue or black jeans, and black leggings and you’re at a great starting point. My daughter likes bow-ties and suspenders but necklaces and headbands are prized accessories as well to accompany basics so invest in a few.
Long sleeve tees are just as much of a must-have as short sleeves. Why? Because you can still wear the short sleeve tees if you have long sleeve tees to go underneath. It’s like getting a two-for-one shirt with two shirt as one. 🙂 Another basic? Destroyed denim. ♣ They won’t be out of style any time soon.
Leggings make life really easy on the wardrobe. They are harder to outgrow and they go with pretty much anything having to do with a tee or sweatshirt. Oh! And they are inexpensive. *Key Point*
As we embark on this Style Stamped Too venture, what makes me smile most is what I hope makes you smile too; the days that continue in the park, the running, the singing, the smiles and giggles, the child that remains un-bothered and protected in this juxtapose age of media and iPhones and the awkwardness between being a kid and a teen.
