Finding the Right Dress Shoes for Boys

For women, shoe shopping is often one of the most enjoyable shopping experiences available – when they’re shopping for themselves. However, when it’s time to go shoe shopping for little boys, the task can become pretty frustrating. First of all, boys don’t like to shop. They just aren’t made to shop like girls are and their patience runs thin after the first 20 minutes. So, eliminate some of the frustration by following a few of the tips listed below.

When you have little boys and you’re trying to shop for dress shoes, it can become quite a chore. You’re just trying to find the best dress shoe for the best price. However, your son just wants to get a pair of shoes and leave. So, to help with this problem, you should consider shopping for dress shoes online. While there is no substitution for actually trying the shoe on for the right size, you can still save a lot of time and money by looking online.

First, find a few styles of the dress shoes you like and take note of their prices online. Then, when you’re running errands and have time alone, stop in a few shoe stores and browse their selections. You will need to remember where the different pairs of shoes you like are found. Then, when you have your son with you take him to one or two of the stores and have him try on only the styles you liked. Do this a few days throughout the week. These short shopping excursions will keep your son happier and more cooperative. By the end of the week, you will know the shoes that look best on your son and you can then compare the in-store price to those online to get the best deal.

Newsletter #33: Black Tie Event

Dear Valued Customer,

At KidsFormal.com we are in full holiday swing and we are sure you are too! We hope that your holiday season has been fun and exciting so far. With all the holiday festivities, we know that each one will require a different type of formal attire – and when you have little ones, it can be difficult to make sure they are dressed appropriately. We want to help you with this issue and the first step is to understand the different terms regarding the required dress.

  • Black Tie Event: When an invitation says it’s a “Black Tie Event,” that means that the event requires the utmost formality. For example, men and boys will need to wear a full tuxedo. Women and girls will need to wear a long, formal dress also known as a cocktail dress.
  • Formal Event: Generally, a “Formal Event” is considered to be the same as a “Black Tie Event.” However, it may also be acceptable for men and boys to wear a suit with a nice shirt and no tie. It really depends on the nature of the event. If in doubt, it’s always best to contact the event’s host or hostess.
  • Semi-Formal and Casual Events: A “Semi-Formal Event” or “Casual Event” are both the same type of events, as far as the attire goes. Boys should wear nice suits to these events and girls should wear short and stylish dresses. Generally, dark suits are best, but depending on the time of year and where the event is being held, a light suit may be more appropriate.

The holidays are fun and full of festivities and they each require different attire. We understand how confusing the dress requirements can be for different event and it is our hope that the above definitions have helped you. Regardless of what attire your next formal event calls for, we can help you find the perfect attire for the little ones in the family.
