Mix and Match Basics for a Little Boy's WardrobeEmily McClements
My three-year-old son could not be more different than my daughter when it comes to his clothes. He really does not care at all what he wears, as long as it is comfortable for him and he can run and play and jump and move without restriction. Unlike my daughter, he’s fine with whatever I pick out for him to wear each day, and we do not have the kind of clothing battles and compromises that we do with our daughter.
And although he would be fine wearing sweatpants and t-shirts every day, I still want him to look nice and well-dressed on certain occasions. So I like to build his wardrobe with basics that easily mix and match to make cute outfits for him to wear that he will like and feel comfortable in. Target has lots of great and affordable options for mix and match basics for a little boy’s wardrobe.

Cargo Pants 2 of 10The thing that's great about these pants is that they have an elastic waist, which is more comfy and easier for younger boys to put on by themselves then pants with a button or snap and zipper.
