Etsy Color Crush: Add Some Grey to Your Child’s Fall Wardrobe

In Baby, Kids, Kids Fashion, Style by FrankiLeave a Comment

September is here and we are beginning to notice little hints of fall here and there. My favourite part of the arrival of the fall season? The clothes of course! I love fall for the layers, the boots, and the beautiful deep and darker shades. Luckily for the style-obsessed mama, you can pass down your love of fall fashion to your child as well. One of the big shades of Fall 2012 is gorgeous grey. You may think that this shade may be too drab to incorporate into a child’s wardrobe, but I’ve come up with a few beautiful items from some great Etsy shops that you’ll want to add to your child’s collection immediately. Take a look below!

I am loving these sweet Etsy finds for girls! Chevron print is still huge, and combining the print plus a beautiful soft grey is a great way to get in a couple of trends at once. The skirt is fairly neutral so you can pair it with either a white shirt or go bold with yellow, pink, anything your little one desires! Legwarmers are another stylish way to keep those legs warm while sporting a skirt (they would be especially adorable on a baby girl!). A grey peasant blouse is a beautiful and versatile addition to your little girls’ wardrobe and can be paired with jeans, cords, and skirts. When the temperatures start to drop, a practical and stylish accessory could be the adorable grey crochet hat that pops with a pink crochet flower. Finally, flats are always on trend, and this gorgeous pair with the flower embellishment is a must-have for your daughter’s shoe collection!

 These handmade items for boys are perfect additions to their fall clothes collection. The grey peacoat is a stylish way to add some warmth when the cool weather hits, and is neutral enough to pair with most of the items in your little boys closet. The skull and crossbones shirt is another classic boys shirt that will look cool paired with some jeans and sneakers! Also perfect to pull out around Halloween season.

Every baby needs a pair of knit booties, and the soft grey ones I included in the round-up are perfect for a baby boy. They’ll keep those little toes warm on chilly days! I am LOVING the hand knit sweater with the rolled neck. Like the shop owner states in the description, they’re perfect to layer over a collared shirt to create a sophisticated look that will also keep your little man warm. Last but not least, for all of the holidays coming up, a tie is a necessary item for boys. What’s more fun than this grey, yellow and white striped tie? This would go great with the hand knit sweater and a white collared shirt underneath!
