Shopping Online For Designer Children’s Clothing

By on March 25, 2013

Kids grow out of stuff fast. This is one reason parents hesitate to purchase designer clothes at full cost. Kids will very well outgrow clothing purchased one season by the time the next season rolls around.

If you want your children to look good in the latest duds, without shrinking your bank about here are 6 tips for shopping online for designer clothing.

Buy Gender Neutral

When you buy gender neutral your son, daughter or future children can share the same clothing. You obviously won’t purchase everything gender neutral, but onesies, t-shirts, shoes, pajamas, sweaters, outer wear are all articles of clothing that can be purchased in gender neutral shapes and colors.

Buy (Gently) Used

Another way to save on designer children’s clothing is to purchase gently used clothing. Keep in mind that other parents will have a similar experience to yours in that their kids grow too fast, and with that some articles of clothing will be fairly new when they resell them. Search places like eBay to see what you can find in your child’s size.

Purchase a Size Up

No one wants to see their kids walking around in clothing that are several sizes too big, but there are some articles of clothing that you can purchase a size or two up. Raincoats, outerwear, shoes, pajamas, underwear are just a few items that you might want to consider going up a size when you purchase.

Be Practical

If you’re looking to save money, you need to identify the type of shoes that your children need. Whether it’s sneakers, sandals, boots or dress shoes decide to get one or two pairs of each and stick to your resolution. It’s easy to fall for shoes and other items when you see them online, but the focus should be on your needs rather than what looks good at the time. When you stick to a few shoes, you’ll ensure that your children actually wear them before they grow out of them.

Get Creative

You can afford to buy several key pieces of designer clothing and mix them up with other pieces in order to expand your child’s wardrobe. For instance a pair of jeans can be worn with t-shirts for casual events or dressed up with a fancy shirt for a special occasion. The same can be said for shorts and skirts. Be selective when purchasing outfits and do so with an eye to the uses you can put to each piece.

Look For Discounts

In order to get the best prices you should look for discounts for designer wear. Shop during the sales and even buy one season later. This will all help you to get the best prices. Don’t purchase cloths that are obviously on trend because your children will not look good wearing them for the next season. Instead, purchase clothes which will look appropriate anytime, so you can pass on to younger ones.
