Simple Outfit Ideas for Baby Boys
Raise your hand if you’re a little (or a lot) picky about what your kids wear. *Raises hand*
Don’t get me wrong; we’re always happy with second-hand goodies and other thoughtful gifts, so no complaints there. But when it comes to my personal shopping cart, you won’t see a ton of stuff with brand names and funny sayings across the chest. We like to keep things super simple around here.
I never expected to have this problem, but I’ve realized it is tough finding cute clothes for my baby boy. Never mind the fact that he grows like a weed, and by the time my Amazon order is dropped on the doorstep, he doesn’t fit in it anymore. When something does fit him, it only comes in baby blue. Nothing against baby blue, guys, but I’d like to see my son sporting some black, grays, and greens too!
Girl clothes come in such variety; the frills and glitter and hundreds of color shades and sleeve lengths, it’s borderline outrageous. To be perfectly honest, I didn’t buy much of that stuff when my daughter was a baby either, because again, they grow like weeds and I like simple wardrobes and minimal laundry.
But every now and then, I come across a cute little shop with hand-stitched clothing in soft, dreamy styles…and I just absolutely fall in love. If I find something that isn’t baby blue that fits my son, I immediately try to think of simple ways to put an outfit together on the cheap. And then I jump in, and make the purchase, if I truly love the outfit.
The easiest way to style simple outfits for a baby boy, is to buy sturdy, versatile stuff. I’m here to tell you that cute little outfits like this one from Alpine Baby Co, make for adorable pictures, wild adventures, comfy snoozing sessions, and snuggly winter days.
The long-sleeve onesie is ideal for chilly Fall and Winter evenings, and it is soft as a baby’s butt…my husband still jokes about how he never understood that saying until he had kids and changed diapers. Babies butts (and chunky thighs) really are so, so soft. This onesie has three easy snaps at the bottom, like most onesies, but that really simplifies the outfit when you have small squirmy babies. I’m not constantly trying to straighten and adjust loose clothing, because everything stays snapped and right in its place.
The hand-stitched knee patches were a brilliant idea, and they make a cute addition to the style and look of the pants. It’ll be a few more months before my baby boy is able to crawl, but I’ll be stocking up on more of these when the time comes.
I especially love these outfits because of the message they convey. Colors inspired by nature, comfy fabrics, and sturdy material. These clothes are truly built for adventure, and teaching our kids to unplug and enjoy outdoor adventure is something I can get behind.
The best baby outfit ideas are the ones that hold up under pressure, and match a variety of the pieces that you already have hanging in baby’s closet. So the simplest of outfits is going to be a cute onesie, and matching pants/bottoms. The little mountain peaks on these bottoms make me want to pack up the kids and go for a long hike. Maybe we’ll just do that this weekend! Look at this cute little chunk, chilling in his beach wagon and ready for adventure.
If you’re looking for simple outfit ideas for your baby boy (or girl), I think I just granted your wish. Alpine Baby Co. sells ethical, organic, American-made cotton clothes, with pre-planned outfit bundles or individual pieces to mix and match. It doesn’t get any easier, or cuter, than this!
Thank you to Alpine Baby Co for partnering on this post.
For purchasing reference, my baby is 12 weeks old, weighs 19 pounds, and the 3-6 month bundle outfit is a little bit snug. My kid is chunky, so I would say these clothes run true to size in most cases, but size up if you have a big baby!
