The Ultimate Kids Wardrobe Checklist

November 15, 2021

Putting together a child’s wardrobe is a balancing act. Your child needs clothes for all their activities without you needing to do laundry all day. You want your kids to have enough cute clothes for multiple outfits, but you don’t want to waste money on excess clothing. Sweet Girls Boutique can help you fill your child’s closet with everything they need.

Essential Items for Your Child’s Closet

How many sets of clothes does a kid need? We’ve put together this ultimate kids’ wardrobe checklist to help you find out. Your kid’s closet should include:

  • 5-8 tops, including knit shirts and t-shirts.
  • One or two hoodies or sweaters.
  • 4-6 bottoms, such as pants, jeans or skirts.
  • 1-2 jackets, one warm and one for cooler days.
  • One or two dress-up outfits.
  • 3-4 sets of sleepwear.
  • 7-8 pairs of underwear.
  • 3-5 pairs of shoes, plus 1-2 pairs of boots for winter.
  • 8 pairs of socks.
  • Quality accessories, such as hats or hairbows.

Armed with this guide, you’ll know what should be in a kid’s wardrobe and what you can leave out. If you live in a four-season climate, review this wardrobe checklist for every season to make sure your child has weather-appropriate gear.

Make sure you customize your kid’s wardrobe checklist by considering your child’s needs. If your child lives in hoodies, stocking up on more of them makes sense. If your child takes part in specific activities, such as sports, you may need more sports clothes, cleats or running shoes.

Tips for Shopping for Children

When shopping your clothing checklist, keep these tips in mind to get the most out of every piece of clothing:

  • Buy neutral colors for hoodies, jackets and bottoms so you can mix and match easily.
  • Stick with a color palette to simplify shopping and picking outfits.
  • Find graphic tees and colorful tops for added personality.
  • Look for complete outfit sets you can reuse in new ways.
