Fall Fashion Essentials for Toddlers 

The best toddler fall fashion is all about cute layers, so feel free to stock up on cotton long-sleeved shirts and knit tops. Add cozy leggings and warm joggers. Mix in denim jeans or textures like suede and corduroy. Finish their festive look with outerwear in a fun fall color!

Comfortable and Cozy Fabrics 

We love toddler fall clothes for their warm hues and soft fabrics. Sweater knit rompers are among the most adorable outfits for fall. The gentle, stretchy knit is cozy and comforting. 

Jersey knit toddler rompers made with 100% cotton feel as soft as a blanket. They’re perfect for toddler girls and boys with sensitive skin and make excellent activewear. Cotton slub jersey fabric has a slight stretch for toddler girl dresses. Cozy fabric blends like waffle sweater knits with viscose and poly are easy-on and easy-off, so your toddler can learn to dress themselves.

Stylish Outerwear Choices 

It’s time for chic toddler jackets and vests! Hooded vests are perfect for layering with cotton long-sleeved shirts. Shop for a quilted jacket that gives your little one’s outfit personality and texture. 

Hoodies are soft and comfortable. Try utility jackets for windy days or adorable quilt jackets for chilly weather. Classic colors like navy and mint are cute with jeans and fall-print leggings.

Adorable Footwear Selection 

When it comes to stylish fall toddler shoes, slip-on sneakers match with canvas pants or sweater knit rompers. Get fancy with girls’ ballet slippers or glitter slip-on shoes. Stretchy knit slip-on sneakers are perfect for active play. 

Thanksgiving-Themed Outfits 

Is there anything more adorable than kids’ Thanksgiving outfits? It’s fun to dress your little one to celebrate with family. There are plenty of ways to create their Turkey Day style, so let’s take a look at some of the most adorable options. 

Turkey Day Apparel 

We love a color or print inspired by fall leaves or turkey feathers. Brown and orange are popular, but you can’t go wrong with red or yellow. Get creative with earthy green tones or versatile neutrals.

Rust and mauve pair well with favorites for toddler girls, like blush pink and purple. Clothing featuring foxes or fall florals will get you in a seasonal mood. The cozier and more stretchable the fabric, the better! 

Dressing Up or Keeping It Casual 

Thanksgiving apparel for kids includes dress-up clothes or playful casuals. Mix-and-match separates with fall animals or floral prints are perfect for family playtime. They’re even cozy enough for napping or traveling!

Mix and Match: Creating Versatile Outfits 

During the holidays, parents should be prepared for multiple wardrobe changes! You’ll keep things stylish and stress-free with our mix-and-match outfits. Our favorite toddler boy fall clothes include jogger pants and raglan tees. Long-sleeve pocket tees and striped sweaters keep their look stylish. Get them dressed up for dinner with a zip-front sweater or a woven plaid shirt. They can wear it with our blue or tan canvas pants. 

Our versatile toddler girl fall clothes include soft pull-on knit leggings and pretty peplum tops. Knit leggings are the perfect companion for floral double ruffle tops or cozy pink sweaters. We have adorable fall print long-sleeved dresses and sweater dresses with tulle skirts.

Practical Tips for Stress-Free Dressing 
Choose styles and layers that make dressing fun and stress-free. Pick out clothes that offer plenty of comfort and mobility! As your child learns to dress themselves, stretchy and cozy fabric makes for easier learning. 

Prioritizing Comfort and Mobility 

Cotton blended fabric feels wonderful on sensitive skin — and parents will love the festive fall prints. A smooth zipper down the front makes for easy changing. Long sleeves keep things cozy, but you can layer a Onesies® brand bodysuit underneath for extra warmth. Fall toddler sleepwear is perfect for an autumn night. It’s also cute enough to wear during an informal Thanksgiving dinner. 

Quick and Easy Changing 

Make diaper changes and outfit switches super easy with cute fall toddler dresses. When it comes to stress-free toddler clothing, parents can’t go wrong with pajama sets. A convenient one-piece design and a long zipper will keep things cozy and discreet no matter where you’re going. 

Personalization and Letting Your Toddler’s Personality Shine 

Let your toddler’s personality shine with unique prints and personalization options. Embroider their name or add their initials. Let them pick out their favorite fall colors, like olive or purple. Our sleepwear and rompers feature animals like polar bears or foxes.

They can help you choose between two-piece outfits or a one-piece bodysuit! Let them pick their pajamas or their outfit for Thanksgiving dinner. They’ll like making choices, and you’ll like how it matches no matter what they choose.
