Dressing Baby for Fall

October 3, 2017

Usher in the fall season with a shopping trip to update your baby’s wardrobe with warmer clothing. There are SO many adorable options to dress baby for fall to keep them warm. Here are a few of our favorite fall trends and where to find them:

Sherpa Jackets

Give me all the Sherpa. Seriously, the Sherpa trend is the greatest trend to hit the fashion world in a long time, it’s like walking around in the coziest bed ever! From blankets to lined jackets, I’ll take it all. Keep baby especially warm and comfortable in a Sherpa jacket, like this unbearably cute Sherpa jacket from Carter’s. Watch out though, the soft material might just put your baby to sleep (maybe that’s not such a bad thing?)

Rain boots

Okay, are these baby rain boots from Petit Bateau not the actual cutest things you’ve ever seen? These are the smallest little rain boots – I don’t even have a baby small enough to wear these anymore and I want them.  If your baby is born on a rainy fall day, put them on to wear home from the hospital!

Framing that chubby little baby face in a hat is not only practical to keep baby’s head warm in the fall, but you’re basically doing a public service for onlookers to give them a glimpse of sheer adorable-ness that is sure to brighten up anybody’s day. I love hats with chin straps to really accentuate those chunky cheeks and chins like this pom-pom hat from Gap, but if baby doesn’t like the straps you’ll get the same reaction and keep baby’s head ultra-warm in this fleece beanie from The North Face.

I like that peacoats can be dressed up or down, designed extra-thick for really cold temperatures or thin for warmer fall days. Whatever weather situation in which you find yourself, there is a pea coat for your baby. I love this wool-blend peacoat from H&M. It would be cute on a boy or a girl, and the wool blend would offer the perfect amount of warmth with breathability.

Fall means it’s time to bust-out the long-sleeved onesies and bodysuits, and Kohl’s has some super cute fall-florals to keep baby warm and stylish. And check out this buffalo plaid bodysuit at Kohl’s for your lil’ lumberjack? TO. DIE. FOR.

Plaid continues to be a go-to pattern for the fall, and this plaid flannel shirt dress from Old Navy has me wanting to call and request it in my size, right? It’s warm, super cute, and paired with some pants or lined-leggings or even with a vest thrown over the top, your baby will be styling and warm in her on-trend plaid this fall.

I can’t even with the baby suspenders, like this 3-piece suspenders set from Carter’s. Is there anything more ironically adorable than a baby in suspenders? They may laugh when they grow up to an age when suspenders are actually a practical fashion choice and see pictures of them wearing suspenders as a baby, but fashion doesn’t have to be practical, especially for babies (hello, animal ears on every hood/hat?)

What are your go-to fall fashion choices for your baby?
