Finding durable kids clothing can be a challenge. Infants don't cause
much wear and tear on clothing, making them an easy group to shop for.
Babies grow fast making it necessary to have several clothing sizes readily
available. Size 0-3 month baby clothes look cute and many gift givers will
purchase these for baby showers. In reality they won't fit your baby for
long and sometimes won't fit the baby at all. Try exchanging some for larger
sizes if you receive plenty at your shower.
When looking for kids clothing try a used children’s clothing store.
Young children will often outgrow their clothing before wearing them out.
This makes for a great price for durable clothing. You'll also find well
maintained clothes in used clothing shops. Some used clothing shops only
accept the best children’s clothing that shows little wear. Check
out several shops before deciding one that satisfies your needs.
Shopping for older children can be a challenge. By the time a child reaches
second or third grade, they have firm opinions on what clothing style they
prefer. Decide on a budget for your kids clothing needs. Remember to include
undergarments, socks, and accessories. Older children wear out their clothes
quickly. You may want to coordinate clothing such as tops and bottoms that
will all mix and match. This way if a top should wear out, you will not
need to get rid of the matching shorts. Just use the top with something
else that matches.
Choose items that are slightly larger than the correct size for a growing
child. This will help the item last longer. Double kneed pants will help
them last longer. Look for styles with elastic waists to have clothing
grow with the child and last even longer. It can be fun to shop for kids
clothing with the many styles and options available. Find affordable school uniforms and custom embroidery..
