Dapper Spring Styles for Boys

Spring is here and it’s time to get your littlest gentleman suited up for event season! Sometimes, getting your toddler dressed can feel like a marathon, especially when you add smart-looking formalwear into the mix. But don’t stress about your toddler’s outfit. With comfortable, affordable options, he’ll be enjoying the day in style! From delightful three-piece suits in the littlest sizes to adorable accessories that will make heads turn, we’ve rounded up the most stylish toddler boy outfits for this spring season.

Consider Comfort.

It’s important to make sure that your little man’s outfit is comfortable and that nothing will be tugging at him or bothering him for the big day. After all, there’s nothing worse than getting to an event and having your toddler fuss about their outfit. Stay away from itchy, rough fabrics or accessories that will be a distraction for your little one. You want stylish toddler boy outfits to be dapper, but also practical! 

An easy way to do this is to make sure his outfit is made from lightweight, cotton fabrics that will feel great against his skin. We love the Vincent Boys’ Suit for this– and it also comes in a stylish grey. This set comes complete with a white button-up shirt, three-button vest, pants, and a bowtie. The best part? The waistband is adjustable for maximum comfort and fit, too.

Of course, one of our favorite tips when it comes to styling toddler boy spring dress clothes is to layer. As the day goes on and the need for naptime becomes much more apparent, you’ll want to make sure they’re as comfortable as possible. If they have a jacket, vest, and tie, you can remove layers while still making sure your little one looks put together. 

Get Creative With Color and Patterns.

One of the simplest ways to pick your stylish toddler boy outfits is to get creative with color. While many formal events lean more towards natural hues and broadcloth, it can be fun to experiment with the color scheme of your little one’s look. Consider incorporating spring tones like soft pistachio green, bright sky blue, or blush pink to elevate their look for any occasion. Don’t overdo it– a splash of color on his bow tie or dress shirt is all you need to complete your toddler boy spring dress clothes look.

You can also consider pattern mixing his separates for the special occasion. For a more subtle look, start with patterned accessories, like an adorable bow tie or pocket square. If you’d like to dress him up in something a little bolder, pair a bright patterned dress shirt with a complementary patterned blazer in neutral tones. We love the way the Sebastian Boys’ Grey Suit incorporates thick navy stripes and perfectly complements the navy and white pocket square. Pattern-mixing in this way will have your little man looking particularly dapper. 

Accessorize Him.

No stylish toddler boy outfits are complete without some adorable accessories! If you want your little one to look especially stylish, the details really do make all the difference. Consider foregoing stiff dress shoes for a pair of clean, new sneakers that will keep your child looking comfy while still looking especially dapper. This is great for more informal events too, where you still want your child to look like a little gentleman and not like he’s playing dress-up in Dad’s closet. 

We also love to incorporate bowties or pocket squares for our little one’s springtime stylish toddler boy outfits. Consider choosing bowties instead of regular ties for your toddler boy spring dress clothes look. They give him less to tug on and play with, making sure that his style stays in place throughout the whole event. For spring, we love the soft camel color of the bowtie from the Elliot Boys Suit in Charcoal Gray.
