The Stylish Boy! (The Series)

by Kathy Sykes on January 20, 2012 · 5 comments

If you are the mother of boys, then you know that there are very limited clothing selections for our sons. Little girls have many wardrobe selections to choose from (dresses, skirts, leggings, pants, tutus, tights, jackets, sweaters, bows, headbands, ribbons, etc.) and it seems like the designers cater to girls. But we want our sons to look stylish too. Where are the stylish clothes for boys?

This is my quest in 2012 to find the most stylish fashions for boys. So, what do we want our boys to look like? There are so many options that I can think of…..preppy, classic American, Bohemian, rugged, outdoorsy, eclectic, European, cultural, studious, athletic, etc. And yes, they need accessories too (ties, belts, shoe laces, watches, vests, hats, backpacks) just to name a few.

Right now, my little Thomas is a cross between classic American and preppy. It is very had to find just simple classic shirts (without crosses and skull bones) and chino pants. Here is one of his classic looks:



Every week I will be posting a picture or video of boy fashions that I love or would like to see more of. AND I am challenging designers and store brands to “step of their game” when it comes to fashion for boys.
Ralph Lauren, J. Crew, Gap Kids and independent designers……if you want to participate in showing Moms that you can style a boy in the best fashions, contact me.

What are your best fashion finds for boys? And check out my Pinterest board that is dedicated to boys fashion.

If you like this series, we will have a LINK UP starting next week. So get your photos ready. It should be fun!!!

You have a handsome little man! Love his look! I think stores are starting to catch on. My plan was to start posting more boy clothing this year. I love the boy clothes from Harajuku mini. They are so fun! This is going to be a great series!

Hi Niecy! Isn’t that hat the greatest?! We will have to get brands to start catering to boys. They are GREAT too!

Thomas is so handsome! That face! Oh my goodness!

My son is 23. Way past letting me dress him. But I remember those days, and you’re right – it wasn’t easy.
