Have you ever heard that saying about “a child who shall lead them?” That saying has hung around for years upon years because there is wisdom in it. Kids have a way of cutting through all the baloney in the world and getting to the heart of the matter in all situations. They also haven’t yet developed the hang-ups and issues that beset many adults and keep them from making the right decisions in their lives. And one of the areas where kids have the best ideas, in many cases, is when it comes to fashion. Boys and girls of tender ages often dress more based on gut instinct and first impulses rather than drawn-out thinking and long consideration. Often, they come away looking great, especially the ones who escape adult interference.
That means that the adults in the audience shouldn’t feel shy about taking a cue from the kids around them when it comes to fashion. In fact, it wouldn’t hurt to emulate them, not just in the types of clothes, but in the way, they approach their decision-making process. You may think that a child doesn’t have the wherewithal to do much more than play dress up games. But you’ll be missing out on their innocent wisdom if you don’t stop for a moment to think about the way that they choose the clothes they wear.
- Blazing the Trail
Most kids below teenage years know little about fashion trends or stylish brands. They just pick out their clothes based on the way that they look to them. They are the most important critic because they are only out to satisfy themselves with their personal look. An adult can learn a lot from this because buying well-worn brands will lead you to a copycat look. Taking a chance on something just because you like it is how you become a trendsetter.
- Price Tag Ignorance
Are you one of those people who is skeptical about an item of clothing or an accessory because you think it doesn’t cost enough? The logic behind that thinking is that a cheaper item also looks cheap. Kids don’t worry about what’s on the price tag, and, as a result, they often come away with bargains that look just as good as higher-priced counterparts.
- The Confidence Factor
There is an adage that claims that what you wear isn’t as important as how you wear it. Kids at a young age seem to understand this inherently while their elders struggle with the notion. Once a kid puts on their clothes, that’s generally the last time that they think about them until they take them off. As a result, they seem more comfortable in their clothes than older folks who are always concerned about what others are thinking.
Kids will eventually grow out of this fashion-relaxed stage and become just as hung up about it as everybody else. Until they do, you should take a few fashion lessons from them and apply it in your own life.
