6.) Don’t forget the mask!

You may choose any outfit, but in the times, we are living right now, the most important accessory is the mask. Ensuring complete safety when moving out or attending any festive event, no matter how small the gathering is, you and your little ones should take due precautions and should keep your masks on.

However, if your child is less than two years old, as per the CDC guidelines, masks should be avoided as they may inhibit their breathing. But, otherwise, when in public, everyone, including kids, must always wear cotton masks. You can go for block printed designer masks, too, like given below with double layer protection that even complement the ethnic wear.

Kids Masks


Festivities are times of fun and frolic for the young ones and whatever they wear must be comfortable and breathable so they are at ease and can enjoy freely. So, when deciding the outfits, always make sure that the little ones like them and they are made of breezy relaxed fabrics to offer all-day-comfort to the kids.
