5 Tips For Dads On Dressing Baby Girls

My husband recently admitted to me that he finds dressing our daughter a little intimidating. This surprised me a little. My husband dresses himself really well – though he is prone to ask me if a particular tie works with a particular shirt – and he never had trouble dressing our son. Then again, boy’s clothes are pretty straight forward: jeans and t-shirts rule the day and really have since he was very little. There’s a whole lot more variety in our daughter’s closet.

I’ve told him that his best bet is to keep it simple when he dresses ur baby girl and he does pretty well. Sure, today he had her in leggings as pants but I think that’s fashionably acceptable for babies (if you ever see me doing that, stage an intervention – please).¬†However, in light of his anxiety on the matter, I put together few handy tips for dads who find dressing baby girls difficult.

    Not all pinks are created equal. Some work together. Other don't. If you're not sure, pick on pink item and stick with neutrals for the rest of the outfit. This is true for all bright colors, actually.
