Choosing a longer length will create a more relaxed style.

5 points for wearing skirts


When wearing skirts in children's clothes, it is important to check the following five points.
By keeping these points in mind, you will be able to wear skirts comfortably and safely.

  1. Check the material
  2. Pay attention to the length
  3. Is it easy to hand down?
  4. Prepare items to wear underneath the skirt
  5. Is it easy to move around in?

Point 1: Check the material

It is important to check the material when choosing children's clothing.
For summer, linen and cotton are recommended.
For winter, knit quilts with excellent heat retention are suitable.
Choose materials that are appropriate for the season so that children can wear their clothes comfortably.

Point 2: Pay attention to the length

When choosing a skirt, pay attention to the length.
A long skirt looks mature and fashionable, but there is a risk of you stepping on it and falling.
Also, if the length is too short, there is a risk that your underwear will show.
When purchasing a skirt, it is important to try it on as much as possible to check the length.

Point 3: Is it easy to hand down?

If you have younger siblings, it is a good idea to buy a skirt considering whether it is easy to hand down or not.
A skirt made of denim fabric is especially recommended.
Denim fabric can be worn without being influenced by fashion trends, so it's great that sisters who are far apart in age can wear it as hand-me-downs.
The fabric is also durable, so you don't have to worry about it being too damaged.
Children's clothes that are less damaged can be handed down not only to sisters, but also to relatives and friends.

Point 4: Prepare items to wear underneath the skirt

If your child wears a skirt, it is necessary to prepare an item to wear under the skirt.
In spring and summer, you should wear overpants or short leggings. For children who don't like the heat, we recommend leggings made with cooling material.
Overpants made of wool and leggings with brushed lining are suitable for autumn and winter.
Prepare items to wear under the skirt to prevent your underwear from being seen and to protect against the cold.

Point 5: Focus on ease of movement

When choosing skirts for children's clothing, it is best to focus on how easy you can move around.
No matter how stylish the design of the skirt is, if it is difficult to move around, it can be stressful for the child.
Especially for commuting to kindergarten and school clothes, you should be careful in choosing materials and lengths that are easy to move in.
In order for your child to have fun every day, it is important to choose children's clothes in consideration of ease of movement.



Skirts are an essential item for girls in children's clothing.
It can be used in a variety of situations, such as going to school, outings, and formal occasions.
