I’ve spent a lot on clothing my three girls. However, lately I’ve been looking to cut costs and find cheap childrens’ clothes that still look good.
All of the dresses I’ve been buying until recently were fairly pricey from places such as Boden, Petit Bateau. My husband often travels to the States, so we occasionally get Ralph Lauren clothes (substantially cheaper than in the UK). John Lewis is also another port of call. It tends to be cheaper than the aforementioned but can still be quite pricey. They’re all lovely clothes but not suitable for painting at pre-school or for wearing to messy play.
I tend to buy them all an item of clothing at the same time so it gets pretty expensive and there never seem to be enough dresses for every day use. Hence the need to find cheap childrens’ clothes to go alongside the expensive stuff.
Cheaper childrens’ clothes
I then had an epiphany on discovering Boots’ Mini Club and H&M Kids They both do cheap childrens’ clothes! Boots always do loads of offers and half price on a variety of lines, including cropped leggings, tunics, dresses, shorts and T-shirts and trousers. I bought a number of tunics and a variety of leggings, which all mix and match. Then there’s H&M: it’s clothing is always really well-priced. Right now they are doing girls dresses aged from one to eight years for £2.99!! I’ve stocked up on loads of the £2.99 dresses, and then some shorts and other dresses, which are still a modestly priced £5.99. The girls are elated, I don’t have to wash favourite clothes every other day and I can save the more expensive items for special occasions. It means we can compromise by alternating between dresses and shorts/leggings/trousers. Win, win.
