The holidays aren't just a time to enjoy family and friends and open gifts; it's also a time for the entire family to look their best. This is especially the case when it comes to your little girl. If you're on the hunt for a beautiful dress for your little one this holiday season, here are some points you want to consider.
Especially if you have an older girl, don't forget to listen to her input. Children of all ages can quickly tell you what they like or don't like. If you ignore her input and simply choose a dress based on your liking, she could stage a small war if you try to make her wear it.
In order to avoid drama at the store and to help you better plan the places you need to shop, consider sitting down with her to find out what type of dress she might like before heading out to go shopping.
If you've been looking for a dress for some time and can't seem to find a dress for her that stands out, don't overlook couture. Dress collections, such as those designed by Ooh La La Couture offer a one-of-a-kind type of look. If you and your child will be attending a holiday party or other gathering, a dress from this type of collection will ensure she isn't walking around looking just like another girl at the event.
Comfort Over Style
Some people live by the mantra that "beauty hurts," but your little one shouldn't have to. Always think about the comfort of the dress before you think about the style. This is an especially important factor if your holiday plans involve a long day full of different events.
For example, a day that includes a family breakfast, holiday program and an evening gathering at a relative's home will require a dress that she can remain comfortable in all day. If the dress isn't comfortable, you will likely have an unhappy camper on your hands.
Don't overlook the advantage of a good tailor, especially if you have a growing child that seems to be in between sizes. In this case, you can purchase a slightly larger dress and have it taken in. If you've found a dress you like, but have another issue, such as a neckline that is too low, a tailor will also be able to help you with this type of concern.
When you know what to consider when shopping for a holiday dress, the process can be less stressful and more enjoyable.Share
