At what age do you let your child decide what to wear?
A good question right?!
My Daughter Nikki is 9 years old and has already developed a strong opinion about fashion. I have always enjoyed dressing my little girl, but as she has been growing she has pushed for more and more input in finding and creating her own style.
She’s getting more and more difficult to dress in the morning, especially if it’s something I picked for her or bought for her, and she considers it not ‘attractive’ enough.
Is it defiance, or is she ready to start wanting to pick her own clothes at the store? Either way, I think the most important thing is to respect our children’s own decisions, they need to feel comfortable and happy wearing their outfits, so ….just keep it simple and let your kids have fun dressing up!!!
For the most part she has pretty good taste, but sometimes we get a clown outfit every now and then from the fashionista.
Today she picked her own clothes – Nikki is dressed a jeans skirt and swimming tiger leggings by molo (who now have their own webshop), T-shirt with ‘petit’ print by TOPitm and glasses are from Zeeman. Not bad right!?
