When we are shopping for our day-to-day wear, jeans or even formal attire in boutiques or department stores, we are usually influenced by three factors: comfort, style and reasonable prices. Of course we want to be seen in clothes that are stylish and yet comfortable, and it is even better if we can get all this without paying a fortune. Everyone likes to look good without having to completely drain their pockets.
These factors are also taken into consideration when choosing Christmas dresses for babies. We want our baby girls to be happy, stylish and comfortable this Christmas season, but we also want our wallets to still be in a healthy state after purchasing the perfect Christmas dresses for our baby. And why are we talking about dresses in the plural? Well, it is always wise to have a spare dress in case of emergency or mishap. You don’t want to buy a beautiful baby dress and then end up not having it feature in your Christmas album just because the chocolate cake decided to leave its mark on your baby’s pretty dress.
So what are the points that we’ve got to consider when choosing the perfect baby Christmas dress for our little princess in order to achieve comfort, style and affordability? Let’s first talk about comfort. In order for your baby girl to feel comfortable, we have to think about the fabric used in making the baby dress. Velvets always look very good and this is always a classic material, but if you live in a part of the world that is fairly warm at Christmas time, this might not be a wise material to choose. It will certainly look divine on your princess but she will most likely feel too warm in the dress and be wriggling around in discomfort. However if it is cold at Christmas in your part of the world a velvet baby dress is perfect.
Another consideration about the dress is that it should also be not too tight or not too loose. Your baby must be able to move about comfortably while looking good. Also make sure that neither the fabric nor the lace are itchy – we don’t want to end up with rashes at Christmas, do we?
The next thing to think about is the style of the dress. It is a must that the baby Christmas dress is feminine and cute. Baby dresses with themes can look really great, such as a snowman inspired baby Christmas dress or a Santa Claus and elves themed number. It is also worth bearing in mind your baby’s complexion and eye color when choosing a dress. We want a dress that will match her eyes and show them off beautifully. The color of the dress should also go well with her skin tone.
Obviously the price of the dress will also be a consideration. Of course we want the best things in life for our little princesses, but we must bear in mind that the dresses we are buying today will most likely only be worn once or twice. Our little baby will not be able to wear the dresses again next year because by that time she will be definitely too big for them. So it is probably better to look at the ranges that are not so expensive when you are in the department store. You might even consider visiting a consignment store and you might be surprised to find one or two really good items for your baby. Believe me when I say that department stores and consignment stores are gold mines in terms of the lovely bargains that you can find.
