I haven’t featured my mini me on the blog in a while and her style has changed from the days I use to put her outfits together ’til now. Chloè is 14 years old and will be 15 in September and she is taller than me, She also plays sports, her favorite sport is basketball. So to me her choice of style is understandable because it fits her lifestyle.
Many would probably say that she dresses like a “tomboy” or has a “tomboy-ish” type of style. I agree to an extent. These days women enjoy wearing more lose fitting clothing, we even shop in mens sections. My baby girl usually opts for comfort. She doesn’t like very tight clothing, or skirts, but she does wear dresses. Sneakers are always her preference, but I think this is normal for kids her age. As I can recall, I was a sneaker fanatic myself. I had almost every jordan that came out and I loved wearing jeans and sneakers, even timberland boots, Vasquez, oversized leather Vansons and even jerseys. I used to shop in the boys section for my jerseys at footlocker because I loved the cut. I even remember having the matching bomber jackets to go with the jerseys. As i’m writing this, I’m understanding my daughter’s choice in style even more. She gets it from her mama! Hence, why she is a mini version of me.
For this blog post, I asked Chloé to share her thought process when picking out her clothing and to share how she put together her fit featured in this post.
“When picking my outfit choices, I like to think of my shirt and shoes first. When it comes down to picking my shirt a classic graphic tee is usually something I would go for because it’s simple. Not too much and not too little. I have a very big love for sneakers. I believe sneakers make the outfit. You can never go wrong with a statement pair of sneakers to make a simple outfit pop.”
“In this featured fit, I thought of my shirt and my sneakers first. We were headed to the mall so there was no need for anything extravagan, but of course you wouldn’t want to go anywhere looking bad, so I threw on a brand new graphic tee that made a statement with a big samurai graphic on the back and then I paired it with a pair of brand new sneakers that came in the mail right before we left for the mall. They were a pair of white blazers with black swooshes on the side and a red nike accent swoosh on the tongue. They went perfect with the tee, which had a dash of red in it also. Lastly, I thought about my bottoms. Usually when I choose my bottoms, I think about comfort and simplicity so I went with a black pair of nike shorts that were a sweatpants material and it had a white nike swoosh on the side. I added my white nike socks and there goes my outfit. Overall, my choices complimented each other well and made a great outfit for a relaxed day at the mall the.”
In conclusion, I allow my daughter to express herself freely when it comes to fashion and style, especially at this age. She asks for my opinion on fits here and there, but she definitely has her own style and flavor. If you’re curious, the mask that Chloé has on i purchased from vistaprint. They have nice ones and also sells the filters with them.
If you have a child or children, how do you feel about them styling themselves? Did your parents give you that freedom to express yourself through clothing as a teen?
