The Kids’ Are All Right

Finding affordable yet stylish clothing to wear on a daily basis is a challenge for even the savviest fashionista.


If, like me, you don’t exactly have cash to flash then filling the wardrobe can be an incredible pain in the behind.

I discovered something amazing recently though: I can actually buy nice clothes and shoes from the children’s sections of certain shops.

And the best bit?

Well, they fit even more comfortably than the gear supposedly designed for girls my age. Who could have known that being 5 feet 4 inches tall would actually prove to be an advantage?



Of course, as I already mentioned, you’re not going to hit the jackpot in every single shop out there. Some stores are fantastic, carrying ranges that cater for kids of all ages, heights and sizes while others will only carry clothing for the little’uns.

Fair enough, I suppose. It is their section after all.

That considered, you’re probably thinking it’s utterly mortifying to be caught browsing through the racks, never mind actually TRYING ON kids clothes in a shop. Am I right?



Well, that’s what I’m here for.

I’ll be mortifying myself for your benefit (while saving cash, admittedly) and highlighting some of the best bargain buys out there. Be warned: I’m no fashionista, but I do know a bargain when I see one.



Sure who could say no to a pair of size 6 wedges that cost a fraction of the price of the so-called adult’s pair?

Speaking of which, if you’re a size 7 shoe (women’s 40 European, 9.5 USA) or smaller you should really have a browse through New Look’s 915 Generation range.

You wouldn't turn your nose up at these now, would you?

You wouldn’t turn your nose up at these now, would you?

It’s aimed at 9 to 15 year olds (you don’t say?) but all the styles on offer are essentially the same as the adults’, albeit with a slightly smaller heel.

I picked up a delightful pair of navy wedge sandals last summer and I’m still wearing them to this very day.

AND they’re having a sale at the moment, meaning you can save even more money.

Until next time, happy browsing!
