Create Your Own “I Can Dress Myself Drawer” for Your Toddler Boy with Zutano

Simply Shawn N Jenn Disclosure

I will never forget how hard it was to watch my sons try to dress themselves.  When they were toddlers they were so independent and they wanted nothing to do with me.  In fact they refused help and when I would try to offer a suggestion it was the last thing that they would wear.  There were many times that I chose not to leave the house or run errands that I needed to in order to allow them to wear whatever it was that they had picked out for that day.

I was lucky enough to have discovered Zutano by the time that my second son was a toddler.  Sadly I did not have this luck with my first son so he was mismatched a lot of the time when he was determined to pick out things on his own.  My second son never looked mismatched because he has his “I can dress myself  drawer” that was filled with mix and match pieces that paired perfectly from Zutano.  If you are trying to create your own “I can dress myself drawer.”

How to Create Your Own “I Can Dress Myself Drawer”

Step 1 — Pick The Right Drawer

You need to pick out a drawer that your toddler can easily reach.  He needs to be able to open this drawer on his own.  For us the bottom drawer has always worked best to house our “I Can Dress Myself” collection of Zutano clothing.

Step 2 — Get Started with the Tops

When picking out tops you need to make sure that they all have the same basic color scheme.  This is going to ensure that you get pants that are easily going to match all of the tops.

Here are my current favorites from Zutano:


Ride Your Bike Toddler Long Sleeve Screen Tee $22


Tailslide Toddler Long Sleeve Screen Tee $22


A to Z Toddler Short Sleeve Screen Tee $22


Navy & White Stripe Toddler Short Sleeve Shirt $22


Beep Toddler Polo Shirt $29

Step 3 — Pick Out Bottoms to Match

Depending on the season you can pick shorts or pants.  I am choosing pants now since it is fall and will soon be going into winter.  If it were spring or summer I would choose some shorts too.


Charcoal Waffle Cozie Toddler Pant $28


Navy Terry Toddler Pants $29


Tan Toddler Woven Pants $36


Navy Toddler Matchstick Jeans $36


Mandarin Terry Toddler Pants $29

Being able to mix and match these 10 pieces is going to give your little boy 25 outfits to choose from.  This means that he is not going to get bored with the clothes that he has to pick from.  Plus you can add additional pieces when Zutano brings out new lines.

Step 4 — Add Some Pieces for Layering

My son has always loved to layer.  I do not know if it is because he gets cold easily or if it has to do with him actually enjoying the idea of layering.  One of the things that I love about Zutano is that they offer a wide range of choices for layering as well.  Here are a few that you can add to his special drawer.  One great thing is that this addition will up his number of outfits to mix and match to over 100!


Charcoal Waffle Cozie Toddler Reversible Vest $33


Charcoal Waffle Cozie Toddler Wrap Hoodie $46.50


Navy and Apple Stripe Toddler Reversible Hoodie $48.50


Navy Cozy Toddler Contrast Hoodie $48


Navy Toddler French Terry Zipper Jacket $40

Step 5 — Step Back and Let Your Son Do It on His Own

With these 15 pieces it will be easy for your toddler aged son to get dressed on his own.  You can step back or even walk away and whatever he picks out is going to look great together.  Thanks to Zutano your job as a parent just got a little bit easier and isn’t that what we all really want?

Perfect Toddler Girl Finds from Zutano — So Easy to Mix and Match that She Can Dress Herself

Simply Shawn N Jenn Disclosure

My toddler is growing up and is now going to preschool two half days each week.  At three years old she is very independent.  She wants to pick out her clothes and get dressed herself.  I am so thankful that I have been a Zutano supporter and fan for years.  This has lead to a nice little collection of Zutano clothing.  This clothing is all put away neatly in a bottom drawer that Adeline can reach.

How Many Looks Can 5 Extra Pieces Create?

Well the answer to this is quite shocking when you are talking about these 5 pieces.  In fact these 4 dresses can add an additional 25 looks and the skirt alone can add 20 looks so you are up to 70 looks with just 15 pieces of clothing….but that is not all!  Thanks to adorable layering options you are going to see how to keep your toddler warm and how to increase the number of outfits that she can create really quickly.

Layering Options for Those Incredibly Cold Days

I love letting Adeline layer her clothing.  It is so much fun to see what she creates and to watch her get excited when she has a “match.”  That being said, there are a ton of options available for you to pick from with Zutano.  These layering pieces do not just look great with the Zutano clothes but they look awesome when paired with other items that your daughter already has.


Hot Pink Waffle Cozy Toddler Reversible Vest $33


Violetta Reversible Zip Hoodie $48.50


Hot Pink Terry Toddler Bodice Jacket $40

To be honest there are now so many combinations that I am going to say that your daughter’s outfit choices will be endless.  I tried counting this but gave up when I hit 200 and was still going!  So you can really come up with a TON of creations.

Of course the best thing about Zutano clothing is the quality.  It is clothing that is going to last forever and it will keep looking new.  This makes it a great choice for hand me downs.  It is also easy for your child to mix and match the various pieces which means that you get a ton of different outfits and looks for not a lot of money.  Clothing that is a good value is something that most parents are looking for and with Zutano it is something that they can find.

10 Pieces, 55 Outfits for Newborn Baby Boys with Zutano

Simply Shawn N Jenn Disclosure

When I was shopping for my little boys, I will admit that I struggled.  There just did not seem to be a great assortment of adorable baby boy clothes.  Once I found Zutano I felt surprised and shocked at just how cute the clothes were.  Another thing that I discovered was that I never needed to worry about my son having something cute to wear.  The clothes give you choices that you can easily mix and match to create a wide range of different looks.  Since babies grow out of their clothes so quickly it doesn’t make sense to buy a ton of different outfits.  However it isn’t much fun when you see your baby wearing the same thing all of the time.  Being able to pick out these great mix and match clothes will give you everything that you are looking for.
