A Guide to Shirts for Kids at Any Age

If you're a parent, you know the struggle: your kids grow so fast. You can turn around for two minutes, and they've grown two inches. The college will be on their mind before you know it, and you need to be ready for this spurt! And here, the task of collecting the shirts for kids begins. 

You already know that kids grow fast, but you might not realize how much a kid's body goes through. As a kid's body grows, so makes their sense of style—and so does the amount of laundry you have to do.

Raise your hand if you remember when fashion was limited to the styles and designs in stores. For most of us, any style choice requires a personal touch with scissors, paint, and thread.

Finding the right shirts for kids can be tricky.

Where do you start? What colors, patterns, and styles suit kids at different ages? And how do you make sure to keep them comfy and happy while still looking their best?

It makes sense to want to go the extra mile when dressing kids. The minor touches can make their clothes look much more adorable. And whether it's a special occasion or just a trip to the park, you want your kid looking their best.

We have a guide to shirts for kids at any age so that when your little ones grow up, you can be sure they're getting the best fit every time.

For kids between 6 and 12 months old, you can't go wrong with a classic raglan shirt.

Raglan shirts for kids are perfect between 6 and 12 months because they come with a three-quarter sleeve and a straight hem and crew neck. This gives you plenty of room to work with as you let your baby move around and explore the world. Also, choose a slightly longer shirt than your baby's torso, so it doesn't pull up when they lift their arms. This will also make it easier for you to tuck the shirt in.

If your kid is between 1 and 3 years old, we recommend our classic crew neck shirt. This shirt has a crew neck and short sleeves. It also has a straight hem and comes in multiple colors, making it easy to match with various outfits.

0-5 Years Old: Raglan Shirts for Kids

Kids this age look adorable in raglan shirts. That's because raglan shirts have a baseball-style collar that screams, "I'm a kid!" They're super easy to get on and off—perfect for little ones who refuse to wear anything with closures. Plus, they have that classic sporty vibe, so they're perfect for playing, crawling around, or taking a nap.

6-10 Years Old: T-Shirts for Kids

For school-age kids, t-shirts are always a great choice. As moms can easily pair them with jeans or shorts to create a classic, go-anywhere look that looks good in any situation—be it the playground or an art museum. Plus, they come in any design imaginable, so even the pickiest of kids will be able to wear them.
