In choosing accessories you can get creative with items already in your child’s closet. If you’re the crafty type this will be easy and if you’re not, a short youtube tutorial will go a long way. You can repurpose items like turning a denim dress into a skirt or repurposing a ribbon into a hand band. There are a plethora of ideas on Pinterest that you can play around with. And when you make an accessory yourself it becomes even more personal for you and your child and becomes a sentimental piece. If you have a toddler, you can involve them in the process too to get them excited about wearing the piece after they help make it.
It’s ok to be unconventional with colors
When shopping for your baby headband, don’t limit your options by sticking to conventional colors. Pink and blue are pretty colors but so is yellow, teal, purple, peach, orange and even multi-colors headbands and prints like polka dots and stripes. These gender-neutral colors not only make your baby stand out they are also easy to repurpose. There are so many beautiful colors that look great on kids. Some daring parents even go for black and it always turns out really beautiful and it’s great for sophisticated outings like wedding combined with a dress.
Thinking outside the box for colors also means mixing and matching colors. Go big if you dare and you will be rewarded. Don’t stick to the convention. Pair a yellow skirt with a pink t-shirt or pink pants with a blue sneaker or headband. Mixing and matching will not only make your kids look very fashionable, it can also increase their confidence. You’re also bound to get compliments and oohs and ahhs from people. Sometimes you don’t need a statement accessory but a statement color.
A pop of color in a headband can go a long way in making an outfit stand out. Mix and match colors. Go neutral but pick a very colorful headband and watch it transform a basic outfit into something with personality and style. You can also use your kids favorite color or colors so the outfit reflects their style even more.
Finally: Do your Research
This particularly is very important when it comes to baby gear and gadgets. There are a lot of bells and whistles as to what’s needed and doing research will save you time. In addition, doing your research will save you a lot of money because gadgets are expensive and spending a buck on something that turns out not needed or of poor quality will be a great disappointment for you as that money could be diverted to something ended. Weigh your pros and cons, look at old or cheaper models and very importantly check the reviews, reviews, reviews!
Don’t just read the good reviews but read the bad reviews to see if the bad reviews complain about something you can live with if you buy the item. You know; one man’s meat… Read up reviews on the product site and also on Facebook groups and communities, mummy blogs and reviews sites. Researching should not stop on gadgets alone, research on everything you can and gain more knowledge to help you as you shop and as you plan for your new baby or babies.
