3 Reasons to Love Neutral Baby Clothes
While baby and toddler clothing sections were once packed with pastels and bold primary colors, more and more simple, minimal, and neutral tones are showing up on the racks these days. Contrasting and bright colors are actually key to mental stimulation and brain development for babies starting around age 3 months, so it's smart to keep some colorful decor and toys in the rotation. However, there's nothing wrong with building your baby's wardrobe around tried and true neutrals! Here are 3 reasons we love neutral baby clothes.
1. They're versatile.
No matter the season or occasion, you can never go wrong with a neutral! They can easily be mixed and matched to turn a few pieces into dozens of outfits or dressed up with colorful accessories - and they're just plain cute! With soft, calming tones, they're a great choice for photos, special occasions, and every day wear.
2. You can get more use out of them.
Whether you don't know the gender of the baby yet, expect to have more children in the future, or want to be able to pass clothes along to friends or family when your babes outgrow it, neutrals are a no-fail option.
Most neutral colored baby clothes are also gender neutral, and simple, classic hues never go out of style. That means you can utilize them for multiple kiddos, multiple seasons, and all kinds of looks.
And as a bonus, longevity means they're also a more sustainable choice for the planet - and your wallet!
3. They're easy and fuss-free.
When you're running on 4 hours of sleep, taking care of little ones, and also trying to be a human, pulling together a stylish outfit for your baby isn't super high on the to do list.
Neutrals allow you to throw together an outfit quickly and with little thought. With a matching, minimal wardrobe for your babe, you don't have to put much thought into creating cute and cohesive outfits.
Finding cute neutral baby clothes has never been easier! Lots of boutiques and online shops have lots of options to suit a variety of styles and seasons. It can help to stick to a general color palette and vary the textures and fabrics to get the most possible use out of every item.
