Spring Kids Clothes Guide: From Baby Long Sleeve Tops To Puddlesuits
As the cold winter months finally fade away and the sunshine is here to stay, it’s time for the wardrobe to have an update. Gone are the woolly mittens, warm coats and wellies, replaced with lightweight options that will keep your child cool and comfortable all spring and summer long. But kids grow fast, and you might be looking at last year's options and find they are the wrong size or don’t fit the style of your child anymore. It may be time for a wardrobe refresh.
Luckily ClayBear Official is on hand with this spring kids clothes guide, full of advice and links to our quality products that will keep your kids happy in the sunny weather.
What To Look For In Spring Children’s Clothes
When spring is here, it’s the perfect time to put away some of the heavier items in your child’s wardrobe. Thick woollen sweaters and puffer jackets are not right for the season and will leave your child huffing and puffing. Spring clothes should be lightweight and airy, perfect for the transition into slightly warmer weather.
However don’t abandon all layering, as spring weather can still be quite unpredictable. You’ll want to ensure you’re protected from rain and colder days with some outerwear options that fit the season.
T-shirts are a spring wardrobe staple, well actually, they’re a staple all year round really! But the perfect spring t-shirt should be made of a lightweight comfortable material such as cotton, perfect for keeping warm on colder days and staying cool when the weather is slightly warmer.
If you’re looking for children’s tops, ClayBear has you sorted. We have a selection of tops and tees, all made from organic cotton and a perfect addition to your child’s spring wardrobe. Choose from our adorable animal print short sleeve t-shirts, finished with a stylised printed drawing of a range of cute critters. If you want something for the colder spring days, we also stock ribbed long sleeve tops. These tops are available in 9 great colours to fit whatever your child loves, and are available in sizes ranging from 6 months all the way up to 6 years old.
The perfect way to have a stylish summer for your little girl is with a dress. Normally not suitable in winter due to their light materials, spring is the perfect time to start bringing the dress back into fashion. ClayBear has a stunning range of dresses for your child, perfect for any occasion. All of our dresses offer a relaxed fit and popper fastenings, so dressing is a breeze! Our dress sizes can grow with your child, keeping them stylish from 6 months to 6 years old.
For the slightly cooler days, we have long sleeve dresses, made from organic, super-soft jersey cotton. Your child will love the bright, vibrant patterns ranging from Pretty Floral to adorable Lion Cub. For those warmer spring days and heading into summer, our short sleeve options offer the same comfort but a bit less coverage. They come in a range of spring/summer styles, with our personal favourites being the Lemon and Fruity Tooty patterns.
Puddlesuits And Children’s Outwear
While you can expect slightly warmer weather in the spring, you still might find yourself getting caught out on a rainy day. When this happens you want your child to be protected and free to explore.
One way of doing this is with puddlesuits from ClayBear. Our Safari and Floral Elephant puddlesuits are lightweight, wind/water resistant while also being warm and fleecy inside. They even have stirrup feet elastics and reinforced knees to keep your child exploring without damaging the outfit.
If you’re looking for a little less protection, we also have hooded jackets available in the same two great patterns. The fleece lining will keep your little one cosy, and the easy zip will keep them snug and safe from the rain.
The spring weather is the right time to start the transition away from trousers into shorts. A great pair of shorts will be comfortable to wear, while also being breathable and lightweight. ClayBear has a massive selection of shorts for children of all ages, ranging from newborns to 6-year-olds.
For newborns, our bummie shorts are the perfect option. Available in seven different patterns, they are made from elastic cotton and an elasticated waistband to keep them on no matter how much your baby tries to move around. We recommend the adorable Submarine pattern or the deliciously cute Raspberry.
For older children, we recommend our cycling style shorts. They are a longer length and a slimmer fit, perfect for any growing adventurer. They are made from 95% organic cotton and are super comfortable. Choose the Boat pattern for a budding sailor, or Tooty Fruity for your sweet child.
If you’re looking for something a bit looser, we also have harem-style shorts, in great patterns such as Lighthouse and Blue Crab. They’re loose and comfortable, giving room for your little adventurer to have fun without feeling restricted. Plenty of space for a nappy and then great once potty trained.
Spring is the perfect time to get outside and enjoy the world. One thing that you can start doing in the spring that you may have put off all winter is heading to the local pool/beach. Whether it’s babies' first trip to the water or time for the kid’s swimming lessons, high-quality swimwear is essential. You want to pick something comfortable, easy to put on/take off and preferably offers some kind of sun protection on hot days.
Look no further than ClayBear swimwear. For young swimmers, we offer all-in-one swimsuits in adorable patterns such as Pink Floral. These swimsuits come with a zip for easy access, along with space for a nappy. They also have a UPF of 50 and cover the shoulders to prevent burning. We also have girl's swimsuits, which offer the same great comfort and range of fun prints, such as Watermelon.
Whatever you choose, our swimming costume range is designed to help your child feel comfortable splashing, paddling or floating around in the water.
Knitwear & ClayBare Collection
While it is getting warmer, sometimes warmer clothes are still needed during spring. This could be during the evening or on a slightly chillier day. At ClayBear, we find the best choice to keep warm during winter is a cardigan. Our ClayBARE Cardigan range is designed to keep your little one comfortable and at the right temperature. Available in 4 neutral colours, you can pair the cardigan with any outfit.
Our ClayBARE collection champions minimal designs for your child. All of the items are crafted using only the finest sustainable and organic fabrics, meaning each item is durable, soft and comfortable. The collection includes bodysuits, lounge sets, sleepsuits, long sleeve tops in a range of adorable colours.
It’s not just clothing that ClayBear stocks, but a range of great accessories that will match your little one’s outfits this spring. We have adorable headbands that you can match with our other clothing items. They’re perfect for keeping the hair off your child’s face on hot days or when they are playing outside. While socks are great in winter to keep your little ones' feet warm, they’re needed year-round. ClayBear socks are perfect for running in the park without shoes on and are available in great vibrant colours.
When picnicking in the park this spring, you want to keep your child’s spring wardrobe safe from stains, so kit them out with one of our bibs, with a simple button design for easy removal. Also perfect for that picnic are our splash mats. They are an incredibly versatile item due to being lightweight and easy to clean. The 100cm by 100cm material is the perfect size for a picnic.
