Fall Essentials for Your Toddler

What your tot really needs to transition into the colder months.

When cooler weather starts to roll in, we fashionistas all get giddy over pulling out the chunky sweaters, boots, scarves and hats. Dressing for fall is 10 percent about being warm and 90 percent about having fun with all the layers sitting pretty in your closet. But what if you have busy tots to clothe?

Sure, it’s exciting to invent a whole new wardrobe for our little ones, but their needs are much more practical than ours. After all, they are all about play, and they’re also incredibly prone to colds. So their fall threads need to be comfortable and warm in all the right places. To create the perfect ratio, opt for practical, but stylish essentials, like lined pants, chunky ribbed tights and thin layers and finish with outerwear staples like boots and all-weather jackets. Finally, throw in a little bit of fun and cute because, well, who else to better pull that off than a tiny person?
