What’s Not to Love? Boy Clothes
Have you gone boy-shopping lately?
Step into any kids’ clothing store and you’ll find a good three-quarters of the retail space dedicated to pink and ruffles.
The boys get a max of one wall, the section dominated by racks of nothing more exciting than PE uniforms in black, grey, blue, and maybe if you’re lucky, red. Or, the ever-present camo. Boring. It doesn’t seem fair, does it?
But with a little hunting, cute boy-clothes (at least for kids under 9) can still be found that are colorful, fun and kid-friendly. Thanks to some great recommendations from my Twitter followers, here’s a few of my summer favorites for 2012.
Osh Kosh has long been one of my favorite brands for boy-gear. I’ve found their stuff extremely durable, fun, the pants all come with adjustable waist-bands (a must for my skinny boy) and there’s always a sale going on.
Also worth mentioning – I was at Kohl’s on Saturday – their Jumping Beans brand had a ton of mix-and-match t-shirts, plaid shorts and polos that were bright and colorful, with just enough fire trucks and dinosaurs to please my little guy. There aren’t a lot of options online, but at my local store there were two major displays of options.
p.s. can you tell my favorite color is orange?
