Fab Kids Superhero Outfit Ideas

in Fab Kids, Fashion

If your child loves to soar through the air and play superhero, or if your child’s school has an upcoming superhero theme day, or if you have a superhero party coming up, read on for outfit inspiration!   Of course you can go the easy route and buy / wear a superhero costume.  There are plenty to choose from.  But if that seems too Halloween-y or generic for you or if you’d rather creatively transform what’s currently in your child’s closet with a few key accessories, the below examples should inspire you!  With a simple cape, mask and wrist piece set from somewhere like Everfan for instance, your son can go from blah to wow in a NY minute!

With the metallic trend being so hot right now why not start with a neutral dressy base and accessorize with some shiny add-ons?

This superhero outfit may start out preppy but it sure packs a punch with the coordinated accessories!


For the princess-y superhero wannabe, a wand may be the necessary weapon of choice.
