Fashion Picks for Kids for late Spring

It is around this time of the year that I take a look at Joe’s wardrobe, and work out what he needs to his Summer holidays. We are one of those naughty families who take Joe out of school in order to take a family holiday abroad – we couldn’t afford it otherwise, and so need to sort things like shorts, swimwear and t-shirts quite early on, before the stores start getting their Autumn ranges in (ever noticed that this happens every July?).

One of the places I always look is House of Fraser. I would rather pay a little more for clothes that fit well and last, than getting the cheaper options that are worn once, washed and binned. Joe, in particular, is the sort of child who puts holes in jeans and trousers by sliding on his knees, and is also quite funny about any clothes he describes as itchy, so we tend to be careful which fabrics we chose for him. He is also quite particular about the styles he likes – preferring skinny jeans, retro style tees and anything sporty.

I let Joe get involved with choosing his own clothes as it makes life so much easier. He is at that stubborn age where he only wants to wear things that actually likes and thinks are cool, so we look at and choose clothes together. This season he had picked out slim fit jeans from Polarn O. Pyret, denim shorts from Benetton and suitably sporty t-shirts and hoodies from one of his favourite brands, Nike.

Are your children fussy when it comes to clothing? Do you allow them to help you choose their wardrobes?

  1. My kids aren’t terribly fussy when it comes to clothes. Anything that keeps them warm and dry will do, but House of Fraser certainly does do some fantastic stuff!

  2. i wouldnt say i was fussy as a child. just preferred the sporty looks myself

  3. It’s really great that you let him decide – I remember doing the same, and wish that my mom had helped avert some really embarassing fashion disasters!

  4. I remember when I was a kid it was so stressful picking out clothes! My mum used to dress me and my sister in the same outfits despite us being 4 years apart in age and it used to annoy the hell out of me haha!
