Tips to Master the Mix & Match:
- Start by picking a color palette. If you are in need of some inspiration, a simple “color palette” search on Pinterest can do the trick.
- Head to your favorite stores and search for items in that color palette that are both versatile and true to your kiddo’s personal style. Tip: A lot of stores (like Gap Kids) section their stores based off of color palettes, which makes picking items a breeze for you!
- Try to achieve the Rule of 2’s! If you’re going to do a 10-item mix and match, achieving the rule of 2’s would like this: 2 t-shirts (1 long, 1 short), 2 outerwear pieces (in this case a sweatshirt and hooded jean jacket), 2 statement/trendy pieces (in this capsule, the button up shirt and puffer vest), 2 pairs of pants, and 2 pairs of shoes. Tip: Remember to pick items that are easily layered (t-shirts, cardigans, long sleeves, button ups, etc.).
- By achieving the above items, you have given yourself the freedom to mix & match to your heart’s desire! The best part? You can even have the confidence to let your kiddo pick out their outfit based on these 10 items! No matter which way they pair them they can’t go wrong, and they can have fun creative freedom about what they wear!
