The Only Basics You Need for a Kid Capsule Wardrobe

Lorelei Marfil

Shopping for kids’ clothing can be a daunting task. Have you ever thought about chucking the seasonal wardrobe-wide refresh altogether in favor of a capsule wardrobe? Yep, it’s possible —  even for kid sizes (and kid needs: hello, mess). Maybe 2020 is your time: The year you decide to keep things simple, pared-back and minimalist for the whole fam. How? Carefully curate your child’s closet and fill it with just a few practical and classic staples that can be worn over and over (and over) again.

Crafting a capsule kids’ wardrobe will not only help ease the stressful school-morning routine; it will help you declutter your kids’ closets too. Hell, why not go full Kondo on your kids’ clothes while you’re at it? Simplifying their wardrobe will make your days and their days easier, and having simple, versatile clothing in a neutral palette or their favorite colors will still allow some creativity; just mix and match to create different seasonal outfits.

We’ve rounded up a range of pieces that will help you start your kid’s capsule wardrobe in style. From denim to tees, we’ve scoured the shops for the basics your little one will love. Who could get bored with pieces this cute?
