Buying boys clothes can be really bloody frustrating. I know you can’t have the pretty dresses, the colourful cardigans and the cute skirt/tights combos. But seriously…..I think shops can do better!
Loads of shops seem to have half a rail for boys and 4 for girls. Thankfully I get most his clothes online where there is a bit more choice, but it is very annoying. I go into shops and see loads of beautiful girls clothes to choose from, and hardly any boys. How am I meant to fulfil my need for retail therapy if there’s nothing to buy!
As I am not above naming and shaming, the stores I have found to be the worst offenders are:
1. Sainsburys. Many a time I have gone to a store to take advantage of the 25% off offer and found that there is hardly any boys clothes and the ones I like rarely have his size. My bank will be happy about this, I am not…..
2. Marks and Spencer’s. This really annoys me as this is one of my favourite stores for quality clothes with generous sizing plus they regularly do 20% off. Fortunately their online store and click and collect is brilliant.
3. H&M. I haven’t actually managed to buy anything because the last store I went into had such a small boys collection and their online system isn’t quite as user friendly.
Boys also want more than jeans and striped tops, a little variation would be great. I don’t want Arthur to look like every other little boy, he will have enough time for a uniform when he’s as school! At the moment there seems to be a uniform for toddler boys, jeans or navy cords and a stripy long sleeve top!
There are some amazing online stores which I think I’m going to have to start using, but then my bank really won’t like me!!! Organic leggings here we come……
Let’s do better shops!! What are your experiences with shopping for baby/toddler clothes, am I missing a gem!?
