What to Wear To a Kid’s Birthday Party

what to wear to a kid's birthday

First it was the showers, now it’s the kid’s birthday parties. Figuring out what to wear to a kid’s birthday party is not exactly like dressing for an adult birthday party. Kids are messy and their parties often involve some form of activity that doesn’t exactly mesh well with heels or dry-clean only dresses. Still, leggings and a tee doesn’t exactly live up to the effort involved in an event that often involves hired kiddy entertainment, catered food, and personalized decorations (is it me, or have kid’s birthday parties gotten more over the top every year?). 

And hey, kids are a lot of work, so after making it through another year, it really should be just as much about celebrating the parents, right? The trick to figuring out what to wear to a kid’s birthday party is finding that perfect blend of comfy and casual and kid/baby-proof but still chic. Easy enough, right? I like to go with a dress that is easily washable or jeans and a cute top (that is also easy to clean and preferably printed to hide any stains). I almost always go with sneakers or flats because my kids are animals and I spend half the time chasing after them. 

Since birthday party season is once again upon us and it seems like birthday parties will be a thing once a kid,I put together a guide for what to wear to a kid’s birthday party.
