Sales , sales, sales … we receive thousands of emails a day with news of further discounts, go around and see the windows papered with discounts, we’re on internet and we are overwhelmed by a lot of banners with sales and discounts … and at the end we buy, relentlessly we give in! But the main question is “What do we buy?”.
If you do not follow fads, anything goes. But if you like a little fashion and want to play in advance (which to me seems even intelligent with children clothes), you should buy clothes making guided by these few rules:
1) Buy clothes useful in spring
But what will be trendy this spring? It is very simple because many brands have already the spring collections, so just take a look in the area of “New Arrivals” and search in the sale zone for the same colors, lines, patterns … especially for this spring ( I do not speak of summer because I doubt that in sales you will find t-shirts with short sleeves for your children …) will be very trendy pastel colors (salmon, yellow, light blue , light green , …). Also have a look at this article about Pitti Bimbo 77
2) Buy “all purpose” clothes
Among these clothes, the most useful in my opinion is denim first of all (you can use it in the spring or next winter, a jeans is always a jeans… ): jeans , skirts, dresses, overalls, shorts, I would not venture on denim shirts because I think (unless they are a bit elastic) they are too uncomfortable for children. I would add the blue (not black, which to my mind darkens much for the kids … and our girls will have a lifetime to “be more thin” with black ! ) and white (a white shirt or t-shirt is always beautiful, in every season). For girls: tights (in one color). And then underwear and pajamas: is it worth to buy good things, on the other hand our children wear underwear for all the day and pajamas for at least 10 hours at night …
3) Buy outerwear
A beautiful down jacket, from a good brand (who follows me knows that I love Moncler), at 50% is really a bargain but also a jacket to use for spring or a fine knit cardigan (in cotton) for summer evenings or if you can not resist (I hate them), even a 100 gr (light) down jacket…
4) Buy some clothes from luxury brands
Yes, even for our children, because beyond the brand itself there is a difference and not just be seen, especially feels. And those who wear these garments, they, our children, have their skin white as snow, delicate… and with discounts of 50-60%, prices become affordable! For example, it is always very classic Burberry , the iconic check every year going around here and there on their t-shirt (elbow, shoulder, sleeve…) and polo but in the end it is always Burberry: excellent quality, durability infinite, always classy. The same goes for classic luxury brands like Chloe, Armani , Fendi…
About shoes: obviously impossible to reason for seasons… you end up with lots of unused shoes because the growth of their foot is unpredictable (even if they say a number every 3 months, you might be surprised …), but if (as Sissi) your child has just changed the number, I’d say you’re lucky ! Or if (like me) you have a number for children (35) you could buy some beautiful sneakers!
