January 15 2021

Each day is a new day to wake up and express you or your little one’s style… However, doing so can take lots of time and effort. Luckily, Ivy Greis has many wardrobe essentials that you will be able to put your own personal flare on. Wardrobe staples consist of items that can be spiced up with jewelry, shoes, scarfs, a headband, etc. If you have a foundation of basic items to grow off of, you will be able to create an outfit that you and your little one will love!

You simply cannot go wrong with having leggings in your closet. Leggings can be perfect to wear a t-shirt with a denim jacket or with a sweater. For a dressed up look, pair leggings with a sweater, your favorite jewelry, and chicest shoes. For example, our Karissa Sweater looks adorable with black Allie Leggings, and this look is perfect for both your son and daughter!

If you want your kiddos to look effortlessly dressed up and be completely comfortable, a jean dress is the way to go. This is a versatile dress in her closet because it can be paired with any jewelry and shoes! During the winter time, we recommend laying her a top or sweater underneath to keep her warm. For shoes, we recommend tennis shoes for a causal look, or her favorite pair of flats! Purchase our Jessica Dress and Chloe dress for the perfect jean dress, or the Holly Romper for a jean romper.

A white jacket can lead to so many possibilities. Pair with other basics like leggings, joggers, biker shorts or even jeans. Or try an expressive route like layering it over a dress. Our Trista Jacket is so soft, so cozy, and a versatile piece for your little boy or girl to have in their closet.

If there is anything positive that being home more has brought, it is definitely being able to have more loungewear in our everyday wardrobe. How can you make loungewear, stylish? First, pick your favorite top like a sweater, graphic t-shirt, or a jacket then pair with his or her’s best sneakers or booties.  We recently dropped our Kai Joggers in black that will go with so many of the pieces you've already owned. These joggers also come in brown, purple, tan, grey, olive, white, and tie dye. Trust us, you need these joggers in your kiddo’s closet!

#5 A Basic T-shirt 

Last but not least… A simple t-shirt. A t-shirt is perfect for layering in the winter. Pick your favorite jacket or coat, jewelry, and funky shoes that you have been waiting to pull out! Other options for a basic tee is with ballet flats or wear under a dress to give the outfit some extra flare. Shop all of our Signature Shorts Sets for a basic t-shirt that comes with matching shorts.
