“When it comes to shopping for boys, we always tell our customers to keep the comfort factor in mind, because let’s face it…boys will be boys!” says Farah Kathwari of Larchmont’s Maxime & Friends. Although your money is best spent on buying easy cotton tees and roomy shorts during the spring/summer months, Farah also suggests picking up a few key pieces for when your son may need to dress up a bit.
“A smart blue blazer, oxford shirt, and neutral (or maybe a more daring color if your son is in to it) pair of pants are essential,” she shares. According to Farah, you can get away with dressing your little boy in styles that are a bit more relaxed than during the winter months yet still look appropriate. For example, layering an oxford or a great patterned tee with an easy pair of pants can allow him to be comfy while still looking sharp. “His shirt will most likely be untucked within minutes of your arrival, but giving him the option to feel more at ease is a great compromise.” Here are some of Farah’s favorite choices:
Winter Water Factory Nautical T-shirt ($39); available in sizes 4, 6
3 Pommes White Oxford ($42), T-shirt ($24) & Grey Pants ($45); available sizes: shirt (4, 5, 6), t-shirt (3, 4, 5, 6), pants (4, 6)
Barque Striped Oxford ($55); available in sizes 3, 4, 5, 6
