Children’s Day is recognized on various days in many places around the world, to honor children globally. It was first proclaimed by the World Conference for the Well-being of Children in 1925 and then established universally in 1954 to protect an “appropriate” day.
In India, Children’s Day is celebrated on 14 November. It is the birthday of the first Prime Minister of independent India, our beloved Jawharlal Nehru. Children called him Chacha Nehru (Uncle Nehru). He understood the importance of giving love and affection to children, whom he saw as the bright future of a greater India. He wanted to enhance the progress of Indian youth for which he established education institutes like AIIMS, Indian Institute of Technology. As a tribute to him, India celebrates this festival on 14 November.
Many functions are organized in schools, offices and other organizations on Children’s Day. Most schools hold cultural performances on this day, run by the children themselves. Teachers also get involved and may perform songs and dances to entertain their students. Children take part in many sports organized for them. Children’s Day is celebrated widely in almost all the schools and other institutions and this is what makes this day vital to the Indian lifestyle.
Another important aspect of the Indian lifestyle is fashion. So, what does fashion and Children’s Day have in common? Well, you must’ve guessed it, children’s fashion. Today, dear reader, we at Boldsky are discussing the best ways to amp up your children’s fashion quotient and make them look as fantastic as they really are. Looks are, after all, a huge deal, even with kids!
1. Hair Accessories and Head Gear:
All kids need some great hair accessories and head gear to make their clothes stand out. Girls can be made to wear bows and beanies. Boys look great in baseball caps, top hats and beanies. Bandanas, head bands, flower crowns, head chains, and maang tikkas are some cool add ons as well.
2. Sweater Dresses for the Girls:
This trend is dedicated to our lovely little girls. Sweater dresses are the best way to look feminine and warm through the winter. They can also be paired with knit stockings and long cardigans when the climate gets too harsh. Mommys, make sure you pick a few sweater dresses for your princess right away!
3. Coats and Cardigans for the Boys:
These babies are a must have for any wardrobe but since we’re talking about kids’ fashion, you guys better make sure your toddlers and tiny tots have plenty of them! Coats and cardigans look great on little boys who love looking suave and cool when temperatures drop. Make sure your son or nephew dons them everywhere this winter.
Yes, boots are not only for bikers, they can be sported by kids as well. Boots, no matter what type, look fantastic on all children. Boys can stick to leather and tougher materials while girls can experiment with lace, crochet and other delicate looking fabrics.
5. The Boho Trend:
The bohemian look has taken the fashion world by storm and we think the kids should get this trend immediately. This look is all about natural fabrics, embroidery, organic, rustic vibes, and channelling mother earth. Try these fun looks with your kids this Children’s Day and let them be a part of the world’s best fashion styles.
