Mix-and-match outfits are a MUST for busy moms everywhere for a whole bunch of reasons.
First, mix-and-match outfits make your life easier. When you know that four different shirts pair with four different bottoms, you don’t have to think so hard about dressing your kid, and worrying if the outfit you chose even goes together.
Second, you know the clothes you spent money on are getting their full wear. Don’t you hate buying a pretty top, only to get home and discover that it goes with NOTHING? It feels like a waste. You don’t have to worry about that with mix-and-match clothes.
And third, it gives you (and your kid!) so many options to have fun with.
Our biggest tip is to focus on colors and prints that coordinate. Check out our outfit combinations below to add to your kids’ wardrobe, or help inspire your own ideas!
