5 Ways To Style A Boy For Holy Communion

5 Ways To Style A Boy For Holy Communion

What a start to 2020 we have had with the most fabulous range of Boys Communion and Confirmation Wear arriving at DIGG Childrenswear.

We have customers travelling from all over Ireland as well as online customers from all over the world. Some of the most common questions are: what are children wearing to Holy Communion and how do I style it to make it that little bit different?

I want to give you all some tips that will help to style your little man on his big day.

Tip 1

Finding his style.

We spend time with all of our customers both the adults and the kids, trying to find out what they want to wear and how they envisage their special outfit to be. Every year First Holy Communion gets smarter and dressier. Therefore we advise our customers on what is suitable in relation to their expectations and their budget.

We also take into consideration the child's personality and try to incorporate colour and accessories to help that shine through.

With brands such as 1880 Club, One Varones, Hugo Boss, Billybandit, Antony Morato we have a huge range for them to choose from to get the perfect outfit.


Tip 2

Try a suit. 

The word suit can sometimes conjure up a negative image in people's minds. In years gone by the suits were very traditional boxy shapes with boring accessories. However, now the suits from 1880 Club and One Varones are super skinny with vibrant colours and amazing little details.

We often encourage kids to try a suit just to see how they feel about it or to rule it out. Often they fall in love with it straight away as they feel so stylish.


Tip 3.

Try a Mix and Match look.

Mixing a blazer and trouser combination is so popular right now. It is very much a trend for menswear as well and I often find that trends filter down to kidswear very quickly. 

When choosing either a suit or a mix and match option, we always choose pieces that complement a child's colouring as well as ensuring the mix and match options coordinate visually.

This type of outfit is so versatile and allows so many different combinations. For example, a One Varones Blazer could be styled with an 1880 Shirt and Tommy Hilfiger Chinos for a real statement look.

Tip 4.

Accessories are key to the finished look.

We have seen a massive shift in how brave little boys are now when it comes to accessorising their outfits. Adding a simple coloured belt can change the whole look of the outfit and for those a little braver we love to add a bow tie, lapel pin, and pocket square to give that wow factor.

The must-have accessory of the season is definitely the pocket watch. Boys love the novelty of having a pocket watch and priced at £20 it is such a great keepsake as a reminder of his special day.

Tip 5.

Choose the proper footwear.

Footwear is key to finishing the look for Holy Communion. At DIGG Childrenswear we love the Tommy Bowe Brogues and they are super cool with either a suit or mix and match outfit.
