Buying kids clothing is quite a challenge. You want durability, but your child is looking for the latest styles and wants to look cool like his or her friends and role models. As the fall season approaches, you will be looking for new styles that are practical and still modern. Remember, if you are shopping for older kids, their opinions do count. Garments they don't like will just be thrown in the closet and that money wasted.

Here are some tips to help you keep your sanity when you shop for your children. As the fall approaches and your child gets back into the swing of school, it's time for a little inventory check. Sort out the garments that are wearable, and those that are outgrown. Keep the small clothes aside for giving to charity or other children in the family. Then check how many garments are wearable and how many more your child will need.

When you buy kids clothing, make your list and categorize: school, play (casual garments to hang out with friends), dress clothes, outerwear, and athletic clothes. Decide how many garments in each category you will need. Bear in mind your child's preferences and get his or her input. Let her check the website with you. Decide on a budget and be sure your child understands that there is a limit to the amount of money you will be spending. When you take into account age and preferences, it will be easier to choose the right style without too many arguments. Allow plenty of time to shop so you do not buy the wrong items. Make sure the merchant has a hassle free return policy.

Underwear and socks should be purchased in the right sizes. If you have more than one child of similar age to buy for, it might be a good idea to choose a style or color for each child. This will avoid mix-ups. Seasonal outerwear should be bought a size or two bigger if possible to ensure that the item will last the entire season. Watch for sales, and be sure you are on the mailing list of your favorite store or website. Try to buy for durability as well as style.

When buying kids clothing it is important to make this an enjoyable task for both of you. Try to agree on some guidelines before you shop. Think about your budget, and also the styles and colors you need to buy. Allow a little leeway for peer pressure in styles and colors, but if you have some clear restrictions on styles (e.g., no belly-shirts, etc.) make these clear before you begin shopping. Be prepared to compromise, and be sure your children know they should meet you halfway as well.
