Last year I was a little more stressed out about what Boogie would wear to pre-school This year he is starting his 2nd year of his 3 year pre-school career and I’m feeling more comfortable about what he’s going to wear this year. He’s a November baby so he started when he was 2.5 years old, but fashion wise he was hanging with the kids who were already 3 at the beginning of school last year.
Have you heard of capsule wardrobes?
A capsule wardrobe is a smaller list of clothes that you can mix and match and the idea is that you replace an item as they get warn out or grow out of the items, but you stick with the basic amount of items to keep your closet well organized and your budget low.
One site I visited when I was planning my own wardrobe said you should have:
- 9 tops
- 5 bottoms
- 5 shoes
I think this list is a little crazy. Knowing my own kids I’ve adjusted the list to fit their needs better.
PreSchool Capsule Wardrobe
- 7 tops
- 5 tshirts
- 1 button up shirt/collared shirt
- 1 long sleeve shirt
- 5 bottoms
- 3 shorts
- 1 sweats
- 1 jeans
- 3 shoes
- running shoes
- flipflips (some schools discourage flipflops but we use these for mostly outside school but buy at back to school time to get a good deal on them)
