Reader Request: Mix and Match Wardrobe For Boys

I will admit straightaway that I have no children, but this week's request comes from a mom of elementary school age boys who hates buying clothes for back to school season.  I offered to put together a capsule wardrobe that is fairly foolproof, using basic pieces from chain stores that aren't too precious to get dirty and will soon be outgrown. 

I thought this would be pretty simple, but it definitely does take some shopping to get things that can be mixed and matched.  I also decided to stick with pieces that aren't covered in logos and graphics since that tends to dress down an outfit so much that the shirts can't be worn as often.   The combinations below can go from school to church to dinner with the family. 

So, mothers of boys, how did I do? 

Boys Wardrobe


  1. Looks good! Much better than the sweat shorts mine is living in this summer!

  2. great finds!! lots of variety for the boys. xoxo jillian:: cornflake dreams

  3. I really like what you came up with! I have two younger brothers and growing up they never looked that good :) Nice work!

  4. love it!! boys look great in those colors and patterns :)

  5. Nice! As a mama to three young boys, I find it so frustrating at the lack of clothing choices for boys. Take the 4th of July holiday, as an example....any store will have endless dresses/outfits for girls and one polo and t-shirt choice for the boys. Wondering if this will ever change?!
