(BPT) – As a parent, it can be difficult to decide what to buy for your kids. You want clothes that are trendy and versatile, but also items that will last. Even more, you want your kids’ unique personality to shine through!

Stocking your kid’s closet with clothing that is unique, fun and durable will help find a balance between your needs as a parent and their wants as kids. Here are some kid-tested clothing items that are sure to quickly become favorites:

Jackets and hoodies

Layers not only provide extra warmth to keep kids comfortable, but they also add additional style to any outfit your kid wears. The best items to add to your kids’ closet this season are denim jackets and hoodies. A classic denim jacket is perfect for every kid as it adds additional style to every outfit while also keeping them comfortable during those chilly mornings. Likewise, cozy hoodies are great to have on hand. They are comfy and go with just about any outfit. If you’re running out the door or picking them up after practice, hoodies are perfect during those transitional and cooler seasons.


From toddlers to big kids, overalls are always popular, not to mention super durable. OshKosh B’gosh is the go-to brand for stylish denim overalls made to last no matter what adventures your kids go on. This all-American classic provides authentic details in each pair with real metal hardware, double stitching, adjustable straps, pockets and stretch for extra comfort.

Jeans and leggings

Getting kids’ pants that are versatile and long lasting can be tough. With changing styles and a growing kid you are constantly challenged with finding the perfect pair of jeans! In just a few wears, parents often dread finding worn knees or holes in pants. Your best bet is to stock up on denim that is strong and matches with virtually any top. For young kids, adjustable waistbands are easy and grow with your kids. For girls, leggings are popular, comfortable and go with just about any top or dress you can find for your kid.

Graphic tees

Got a kid with a big personality? No matter his or her interests, graphic tees are an instant hit that will be worn time and time again. These comfortable tees are printed with fun designs and catchy phrases, with some even featuring interesting details. They are easy to wash and are great for layering with that jean jacket or hoodie on cooler days, offering versatility to any closet.

Shoes and socks

When designing a child’s closet, you need to consider head-to-toe looks, and that means looking down at those feet. Basic dress shoes in black should cover all your more formal needs, from holidays to school pictures. Comfortable sneakers are great and last all day. As for socks, basics are a necessity but fun colors can add pop to an outfit. For younger kids, socks with grippers are a must. Grippers help provide stability as they begin to take their big steps from crawling to walking and are great as they grow for playing around the house.
