I’m back with some more current fall and winter fashions…this week from The Gap. One thing I really love about Gap’s website is their “Looks We Love” tab under each category of clothing. Its so easy to go through and find great outfits for your kids whether you have an older boy or a toddler girl, or infant boy/girl twins. The do they work for you! What’s even better is the fact that you may already have pieces that are really similar to some of the layers, and it helps serve as a visual guide to putting together an outfit for your child (or even yourself!) from clothes that are already hanging in their closet. Or maybe you’ll find you just need one piece of the outfit to make it complete and you know exactly what you are looking for when you hit the store. If you ask me, that’s super helpful! Here are a few of my current favorite looks from those “Looks We Love” sections on Gap’s webpage.
If you peeked in my closet, you would find (probably) too many muted tones and neutrals with a few bursts of color here and there. So these looks with earthtones really caught my eye. They could easily be paired together to create a great sibling wardrobe for a photo shoot. I love the splash of the muted purple, just enough color while staying in the same color family. These are great winter colors if you ask me! And how cute is that aviator look on the left!
Another great color for winter is RED! Sometimes it is a little harder to figure out how to dress a little boy in red, so I thought these were fantastic examples. Navy blue and charcoal grey pair with winter red in a very lovely way. This is a great modern look for a brother & sister on the left, or a pair of energetic brothers on the right. Or this could even work all together for larger families with a van load of kiddos. These looks are great examples of the visual dynamic that layers add to a wardrobe. Layers photograph so well, and can take a simple color palette to the next level. I love the color accents that peep out from the bottom layers, and even the great touch of pattern in the little girl’s outfit. I bet you could even pull these together from the laundry pile this weekend.
Here I go with neutrals again. The most popular color in my own closet–grey! Grey is not everyone’s cup of tea, but I realized I had a problem when I packed for a recent weekend getaway and the entire stack of clothes I laid out were varying shades of grey. What can I say…I know what I like!These outfits full of tone-on-tone grey patterns and textures would look great this winter–especially in the snow! My favorite thing to do with a grey outfit is to throw in a dose of jewel tone like turquoise, mustard yellow, or hot pink as seen here. Such a cute look for those little elementary school kids out on winter break.
I hope this gives you some good ideas for your upcoming photo shoot. All of these principles can be applied to mom & dad’s wardrobe as well. All styles above can be found at The Gap.
