When you are buying clothes for yourself, you already have a good idea about sizing and fit. You know what will suit you and which shops you like the most, meaning you have a good idea of what you want you are likely to purchase before you even get there. But, when it comes to buying children’s clothes though, you can sometimes get blindsided. Not all brands and styles fit well. However, it is possible to make better purchasing decisions. All you have to do is follow these tips.
1. Look at Their Closet At the Moment
Before hitting the stores, you need to start by looking at what they have in their closet at the moment. Do they have a good variety of clothing for all seasons? Do they have enough to wear at different times of the day and for different occasions? Is your daughter in need of new pajamas? Does your son have enough t-shirts and swimwear for summer? It can be easy to forget what you have and what you have purchased over time. This is why it is always good to start looking at what you already have. When you take time out to do this (and even make a list if it helps), you can be sure that you don’t end up purchasing the same thing twice.
2. Always Pay Attention to the Brand
Once you are aware of what your kids have in their closets or wardrobe, it is time to start shopping around. Looking at the brand of clothing is always important. The brand name may be really important to you, but it may also show you where a product is made (and what it is made from).
Children’s clothes can be expensive purchases, and you want to get good value for money with each purchase. If a brand is not known for well-made products, try and avoid buying them where you can – even if they are cheap! As you may well end up buying twice.
3. Purchase Clothes That Are Comfortable But Well Made
Your child needs comfortable clothing that they love. For instance, if you are looking to get girls pajamas, you want items that are soft, stretchy, and cozy. There are brands out there that hit all these targets but also offer cute designs that your child will love and have the extra bonus of being well-made. As your child will want to wear these cute items over and over again, you want to ensure that your purchase can last them for as long as they need and want it.
Poorly made (or produced) clothes and accessories will not last. They will start to come undone in months (or even weeks). So, always look at the stitching on items, and see how well-made the seams are. Cheap clothes will often not meet the standards you need.
4. Following Adult Trends
You want your kids to look good all year round. To make this happen, you need to look at adult trends, especially when you have teenagers and older kids to dress. Adult trends often dictate what children’s clothing will look like in terms of color, pattern, and cut. Looking ahead at the season or two ahead will give you a good idea about what will be filtered down. It will also allow you to see how you can start putting together outfits.

5. Buy Out of Season
You can often get great bargains on clothes at the end of a season. Buying clothes for next year or next season may not be something you want to do all the time, but it will allow you to build a staple closet for your kids. One great item to do this for is a coat. Winterwear rarely changes too much over time, so you can be sure that your kid will always be in-style even if you buy it months later.
6. Get the Sizing Right
Purchasing items of clothing that are a few sizes bigger may feel like good sense to you, especially if you are purchasing for more than one kid. However, if clothes and accessories are too small or large, they will look silly and make your kid uncomfortable too. Poorly fitted clothing will stop you from getting the look or style that you want. Larger clothes will most likely get damaged quicker, especially if the sleeves or leg length is too long.
