When most of us think of a party dress, we imagine a semi-formal cocktail number. For kids, this translates into semi-formal or formal dresses they can wear on special occasions. Girls' formal dresses often make use of tulle, velvet, and bows to add elegance in a fashion little girls will want to wear.
Party Dresses Through the Ages
Little girls have been wearing dresses for centuries. In the 1800s, everyday dresses for young children had lace and embroidery. Today, we look at those dresses and think they must have been for special occasions, but that was standard for girls of a certain social class. In fact, toddler boys used to wear the same dresses that toddler girls wore. Mothers would sew these garments for their children. We bet you're glad you can come to thredUP to shop, instead of sewing all your baby clothes!
Formal and Semi-Formal Options
We know it can be a little tough getting kids to dress up, especially when they'd rather play outside and not worry about ruining their clothes. When you shop at thredUP for girls' party dresses, you'll find cute options your kids will want to wear. Plus, when you're paying up to 90% off retail, it's okay if the formal wear gets a tiny bit dirty when the kids are having fun.
Some of our girls' party dresses are semi-formal, without the embellishments that set apart truly formal wear. We love these as picture-day options and recital frocks. If you've got kids that can't sit still, cotton options are best because cotton bounces back in the wash so well. It's one thing to buy pretty dresses for your kid and another thing to keep it looking pretty!
