How To Select The Outfit For Your Baby's First Birthday
Few occasions are quite as memorable as your baby’s first birthday. Perhaps you’re having a picnic in the park and inviting all your family and friends. Or maybe you’re choosing to celebrate in a more understated way but still want an outfit that is going to capture the moment and look wonderful in the photos you’ll treasure for years to come. Either way, My Little Wardrobe has the perfect outfit for you.
Choosing the perfect outfit for your baby's first birthday can be a daunting task — if not for the simple fact there are so many options, it can be difficult to know where to start! Here are a few things to keep in mind when selecting an outfit for your little one:
The first thing to consider is the weather. If the party is to be held in the summer, you'll want to dress your baby in something light and airy. A cute sundress — like the MLW By Design Indie Linen Dress — or pair of shorts and a matching top — such as the Safari Bow Tie & Shorts Set — is perfect for a sunny day. If it's winter, opt for something cosy and a little warmer, like the Flutter Tutu Romper worn with a pair of stockings.
Next, think about the theme or colour scheme of the party. Perhaps you want to dress your baby in something that coordinates with the decorations. If the party is blue and white, for example, our Arlo Bow Tie & Suspenders Set would be perfect. Or, if the party has a specific theme, try and find an outfit that matches this. The Animals Preppy Sets, for example, would be perfect for an ‘animal’ themed party!
Finally, don't forget about comfort! Babies have soft skin, so make sure whatever you choose is comfortable and won’t irritate them. Also, keep in mind that they'll likely be crawling or sitting on the floor at some point during the party, so make sure their outfit allows them to move and explore their surroundings.
Following these guidelines will help you choose an outfit that is both stylish and practical for your baby's big day!
How To Accessories A First Birthday Outfit
Don’t just stop at a new romper or dress — your baby will need a few accessories to really take their first birthday outfit to the next level! In addition to our range of party and birthday outfits, My Little Wardrobe stocks accessories suitable for every occasion.
It’s never too early to teach the importance of being sun smart. If you’re planning an outdoor party, keep your little one’s face protected from the sun by popping on a cap and sunglasses.
To keep their brand new outfit looking fresh and clean for as long as possible, browse our range of bibs, many of which can be personalised with your baby’s name — how adorable!
By their first birthday, your baby may not have a full head of hair yet but that doesn’t mean you can’t accessorise. My Little Wardrobe offers gorgeous headbands, turbans and beanies to complete a first birthday outfit.
