Shopping for kids clothes is something that just about every parent loves doing. It’s easy to grab things off the shelves because they look cute, but what exactly does your child need in their wardrobe? Here are a few different types of outfits it’s worth stocking up on to make sure they always have the right clothes on hand.
Most schools these days require kids to wear uniform. Your best bet is to buy more of this stuff than you think you will need. Tights and trousers can get ripped due to falls in the playground, shirts and blouses can go gray after constant washing. You will of course want your child to look smart in school so having plenty of items on hand is worthwhile.
These are the sort of clothes you would put them in when you’re going out on the weekends. Maybe it’s a cinema trip, visits to relatives, a restaurant or day out. It’s worth spending a little more here as the quality will be better. Items will wash nicely and last longer without fading, stretching or going bobbly. You can buy things like kids Stone Island clothes as well as other designers which cost a little more, but the price is reflected in the quality. Keep these kinds of outfits for when you’re doing activities that don’t involve getting messy. That way you avoid them becoming ruined, and they can be worn many times.
Special Occasion Clothes
It’s no secret that kids have active social lives- in fact, I’d hazard a guess that it’s far better than most of their parents! When you have to take them to birthday parties and other special events every other week, they need to have the right clothes to wear. Plus when you have special events like weddings, christenings and other formal occasions crop up, they will need suitable outfits to wear too. Things that are a little more formal but still allow them to move around and have fun are the best way to go. A couple of different skirts for girls can be worn with different tops, tights, and accessories to look different each time. The same is true with trousers for boys. If you have a few staple pieces on hand, you’ll always have something for them to wear when a special occasion crops up- but without it feeling like they’re constantly wearing the same things.
These are the kinds of clothes you can put them in and not worry about them getting ruined. If they want to play outside, be boisterous and mess around you’re not panicking that they’re going to fall over and rip them or get them dirty. A couple of basic t-shirts, leggings or tracksuit bottoms will do the trick. Easy, comfy clothes they can put on after school if you’re not doing much. Or at the weekend if they want to ride their bikes, play on roller skates or go hiking in fields or woods.
