Children's Clothing

Children need various types of clothing for different occasions. Children tend to be messy when eating or playing, so it is always a good idea to purchase several outfits for them to change into between washing times. Since children grow quickly, secondhand children's clothing offers a budget-friendly alternative to regularly buying brand new clothing.

Casual Wear

Casual attire for children often includes play clothes and everyday wear. T-shirts and jeans or slacks are generally easy to clean, and children can freely move around in them. Girls may find sundresses to be comfortable to wear in the warmer seasons, while a good option for boys might be a sleeveless T-shirt and shorts.


All children should own at least one formal outfit for special occasions. This type of attire is good to have on hand in case your little one is to attend a formal engagement, such as a wedding, church, or special party. Many style options are available. A girl's wardrobe can include dresses of different styles for warm months and cooler months. For boys, a dress shirt and slacks or a suit work well. Also consider purchasing a pair or neutrally coloured dress shoes that can be mixed and matched with different outfits.

Night Wear

Light cotton pyjama sets are perfect for girls and boys during warm seasons. These sets may feature long sleeves and pants or short sleeves and shorts. Fleece or flannel pyjama sets keep kids cosy during cooler seasons. Pyjama top and bottom separates are available to mix and match. Footed pyjamas offer extra warmth on especially cold nights.


Varying types of outerwear are important for children to have for different occasions and seasons. Cardigans keep children warm during cool weather, but they should also have at least one heavy coat for cold temperatures. Hoodies or jackets can be worn for moderately cold weather. Formal coats or jackets may accompany formal attire.

Keeping up a child's wardrobe is a work in progress. Buying used children's clothing can help to ease the burden of regular clothes shopping. Furthermore, selling your own children's gently used clothing that they have outgrown can give you money to buy items that fit.
