15 Black and White Basics For Your Toddler’s Wardrobe

15 Black and White Basics For Your Toddler's WardrobeI am a lover of all things neutral. Black and white clothes are my jam, and I love seeing little ones in this color scheme as well.

And as if being timelessly chic wasn’t enough, black and white have the added bonus of being gender neutral, so if you’re looking to add more littles to your brood one day, most of these items can be passed on down the line regardless of whether your next child is a boy or a girl.

So, if you have a partner who isn’t on board with “wasting money on kid’s clothes,” just gently remind them that you’re really saving money by buying these things, because they can be passed down to your next child. Yes. That’s it. It’s science. Money saving science. You’re welcome. But I digress…

Here are a few of my favorite black and white basics for toddler wardrobes. Some we own and some are on our wish list!  Let me know if there are any items you think I should add to my list!
