I received some requests for a Capsule Collection for Autumn (like this one) but for boys, and as a Mama of Boys myself I know how hard it can be finding cute clothes for boys that work together AND don’ leave gaps in the wardrobe… so here it is! I’ve used a base of khaki, grey and navy with pops of yellow but you can use any colour palette that you and your son loves!
The key to a child’s wardrobe being versatile and long lasting through change of seasons (well as long lasting as it can be when they grow like weeds!) is LAYERING! Basics like Short and Long sleeve tees can have Oxford Shirts, Light Knits, Cardigan AND/OR Gilet or Parkas layered over them depending on the temperature. A polo shirt can have a light knit layered over and paired with chinos for a dressier look, or a round neck long sleeve shirt can be layered under a V-neck light knit with jeans for a more casual look. When it’s really cold layer a long sleeve tee with a collared shirt and fine knit jumper then finish with a gilet or cardigan and parka depending on the occasion.
I buy A LOT of the boys’ clothes from Next Australia, I find the quality to be fantastic and the price reasonable. I also love the variety available and that not everything is covered in prints/pictures. Cotton On, Target, Big W and Best & Less all have quite good ranges for boys as well if you prefer to shop in store.
