Geetika, it is indeed a challenge for parents. When buying clothes for my 3 year old girl, i make it clear to her what we are going shopping for. tights/pajamas and tee shirts for home and park, frocks for parties or otherwise. Then based on the material, and price etc. , we shortlist 3-4 and then leave the final decision on her. It does happen that i end up with more pink buys than any other colour, but i can't help it much. i am sure she will outgorw the pink fascination.

Hi Geetika! Well u have touched upon a very difficult topic 'Girls's dressing style'. I am sure all parents get freaked out when it comes to this issue. On a serious note, I appreciate yr concern on helping yr child with dressing style yet not being critical. This is what I do when it comes to buying dresses for my girls: 1. I consider their choice, what they would like to wear. For example: frocks, skirts or jeans etc. 2. Supposedly they want frocks,so in that section we together pick and choose 6-7 dresses which need not be just pinks and purples. 3. I make them try that in the trial room. So we have a ramp walk literally in the store. ( it's amazing to watch their faces glow when they fit in the dress of their choice). 4. If it fits well we can go on to the next level, price. If it's value for money. 5. Sometimes the child would not just agree to it. Then u could give in keeping in mind the happiness on their face which is priceless or else u could show them better options and let the child decide for self. Let the child make her own style statement. Do not promote copying others. Whatever child feels comfortable in and also looks good on her should be her dressing style. This is what I follow. Hope this helps!

Hi Geetika You may ask her choice first. Also observe her friends outfits, keep an eye on what's trending in her friend circle. You can give your suggestions to her, shop together but don't force her to buy or wear something which u like and she doesn't.
