I admit it. I sometimes shop in the children’s section for clothes. Besides for being cheaper than their adult counterparts, I also like how the fit can be. These 4 items are top on my get-it-from-the-kid’s-section list:
Denim Jackets: I picked up this jacket a few year ago from the kid’s section at Target. I like how its shorter on me than my usual denim jackets. Gap kids is currently selling a cute white denim jacket for $34.95. A similar jacket from the women’s department runs for double that at $69.95!Blazers: Looking for the perfect shrunken blazer? Head to the boy’s department. During pregnancy I wore a boy’s navy blazer that I thrifted. I love how the sleeves were shorter…I usually roll or push them up anyway.
White T-shirts: Whenever I need some basic white t-shirts, I pick up a pack of Hanes xl’s from the kid’s section. I mean, as quickly as white t-shirts last, you can’t beat the price!
Button Downs: I buy men’s button downs to wear with skinny jeans, but on the flip side, boy’s button downs work much better tucked into pencil skirts or under sweaters.
Keep in mind that children’s clothes won’t be tailored the way that adult clothes are. They tend to be a little boxier, but if you can pull it off (and find them in your size)…I say go for it!
