I’m so excited to share with you today my fall toddler capsule wardrobe for this year.
Autumn is upon us and I couldn’t be more excited, especially when all the cute baby sweaters and tiny jackets start to make an appearance in stores. It also seems like my toddler has had a growth spurt because nearly all of his clothes are now too tight for him or the sleeves have become too short.
Around springtime I first shared my toddler’s capsule wardrobe and a lot of you found that post helpful, so here is the autumn version of my toddler boy capsule wardrobe for this year.
A couple of days ago I hopped on to the H&M website – my favourite place to shop for his clothes. It is cuteness overload on there! So I thought I would share with you the process of choosing his clothes and what items I went for. There is also a video haul at the bottom of this post if you want to have a better look at all of these items.
The colour scheme
I think the last time I re-did his wardrobe I went for a more neutral colour scheme, but this time I wanted just a tad more colour in there. Mainly because I found cute colourful items that I liked 🙂
I did choose some basic white and grey items, because those are always nice to have as basics. And then I picked a few yellow-mustard bits, as well as a bit of green and blue. I think as long as you have your basic colours down, any add-ons will go well with those.
Also, I picked some matching top-bottom sets, because I thought they would look cute and they’re versatile since you can mix and match with other items as well. Those rainbow items I couldn’t resist. They’re so cute, so I picked the sweater and the hat to go with it.
Since this is a fall wardrobe, I tried to have some good layering bits going on. The reasons for that are: 1. layers keep you warm in cold weather and 2. layers work best when go in and out of places and need to put on or take off clothes. For example, I will put on him a short sleeve body, then a sweater, then a jacket on really cold days. If we’re inside a supermarket for example, which is usually not super warm, I will let him be in his sweater. If we go into a place where he gets more hot, like the soft-play, then I can let him stay in just a short-sleeve body. I love to have that versatility for him.
Be minimal and keep your laundry habits in mind
This is something I mentioned in my previous post as well, but I think you can get away with having quite a minimalist wardrobe for your toddler. They really don’t need as many clothes as we might think.
I am lucky to have a washer and dryer, so I can get clothes clean quite quickly if I realize I’ve run out of something for some reason. But most of the time, that’s not the case and I can get by with just these clothes.
Make sure you have enough tops/bottoms to last you between washes and you should be good. For example, I don’t buy a lot of pyjamas because we just don’t need them. A set of three is plenty for us, since you don’t need to change pjs every single night.
Here is a list of all the items in my toddler’s wardrobe:
- Navy/grey sweatshirt
- Navy sweatpants
- Green dinosaurs sweatshirt
- Green sweatpants
- Yellow sweatshirt
- Yellow sweatpants
- Silk blend top & trousers
- Rainbow sweater
- 5 pack short sleeve bodies
- 3 pack long sleeve bodies
- 2 pack pyjamas
- Star printed pjs
- Fleece jacket
- Grey cardigan
- Waterproof jacket
- Striped hat
- White trainers
A few items not included here that we already had: 7 pairs of socks and a pair of rain boots.
I hope you found this fall toddler capsule wardrobe helpful if you are in the process of re-doing your toddler’s wardrobe.
Have a great autumn with lots of splashing in muddy puddles 🙂
