Some followers were hoping for tips on styling these outfits, so here are some ideas for mixing and matching!

I used a virtual outfit-creating website (Polyvore) to come up with some outfits. There are mostly AG pieces, and I filled in the gaps with some things from Etsy and girl-sized basics that can easily be translated into things your doll may have in her wardrobe. 

Cozy Cutie: Spring may be coming, but you don’t have to put away the sweaters and scarves quite yet! Try pairing Molly’s sweater with red and black (yes, it’s okay to mix navy and black!) and add accessories such as glasses and a hairbow for the “cute nerd” look inspired by the argyle design.

Dressy Casual: Dress up a casual sweater and jeans outfit with accessories such as a stylish hat, purse, and jewelry. Play up the colors in Molly’s sweater with bright red and green accents, or add contrasting colors like aqua and yellow.

Brightest in the Class: Molly’s skirt is perfect for a school outfit, and don’t forget to try the dickie with different outfits! A sweater over a collar is a very popular look, and it adds a little something extra to an outfit.

Almost Spring: Here’s a great transition outfit for when it looks like spring but it’s too early to break out the sandals and shorts. Molly’s skirt pairs nicely with the Ruffled Hoodie tank, just add an outer layer and a hat for a complete look.

In the Garden: While I admire AG’s attempt at fashion-forward for the new “Sunshine Garden” outfit, I think the Ruffled Hoodie tank pairs much better with the cute plaid shorts than the asymmetrical top they come with. This tank is great for a summer outfit paired with shorts, sandals, and some accessories to protect your girl from the sun!

Out Shopping: The Ruffled Hoodie pants look perfect for a day out shopping: stylish but comfortable! Try mixing the light grey pants with a more saturated color on top, like this jewel-tone sweater-tee.

Soft and Subtle: Or, do the opposite! Pair the light colored pants with similar light colors for an understated monochromatic look. (And who could resist wearing pink glasses that match the puppy’s glasses on your shirt?)

Fashionably Funky: For the ruffled hoodie, try experimenting with different styles to layer it over, such as a longer tunic top with sleeves that will show past the hoodie sleeves. Mixing it with bold colors and prints gives it a totally different look than the original outfit.

This outfit has a little bit of wishful thinking involved because it says “spring is coming!” much more than it appears to be by looking out the window at the foot or two of snow. But I’ll be fine with a coat right? I love playing around with layers for Spring, and something like this barely-there vest takes a simple tee to an “outfit” especially when topped with a pop-of-color belt. Add jeans and some cute shoes and you’re good to go!
