OK - I'm still hung up on clothing - where can I find COOL clothes for my son?

I think all the things people got me are so cute, but some days I look at him, and I think " Oh my GOD - what a dorky outfit!" Chat Icon

Are there any hip moms out there (because I'm so friggin hip, I know) but are there moms out there who like to dress a little edgy, and dress their kids like that too? Where can I go for stuff like that? I know Utopia has some cool stuff...

Looking for skater clothes, punky clothes, things where he still looks like a cute little baby, but not dorky...


If you have any pics of your baby boys in "cool" clothes, please post as well...

TIA

Have you tried H&M or Old Navy? My DH and I are anti-cutsie for our little guy as well.

Sorry I'm a girly girl mom but I know what you mean about dorky. Sometimes it's so hard to put her in "gift" outfits because it's stuff I would NEVER buy. I had mom drama over an Easter dress.
Can you do like old navy cargos and some tees. They have some casual hip clothes for not too much money.

I totally know what you mean-I was so conscious (and still am)of not dressing my sons like dorks-EVER!

I find there are adorable girl clothes EVERYWHERE-but for boys-its a little harder!

I LOVE Century 21 for cool European/skater/rocker/not "cookie cutter" clothes you see every where else! and there prices are great.

Nordstrom, Denny's, even old navy&Gap sometimes have some cute stuff!
In NJ theres a ZARA for babies-if you catch them right-you can find adorable stuff-also Daffy's and H&M-same thing...you have to catch them at the right time butyou can find awesome boy clothes you'll love!
Yes-also Bloomingdales-you can find the cutest rock n republic & diesel stuff!

Yeah, I know what you mean, I dress Noah really trendy and all my friends laugh at me! I suggest Old Navy, Forever 21 Baby Clothes, Century 21 has AWESOME baby clothes, Target is a bit hit or miss, but I got Noah some good clothes at Target last week. Babygap is hit or miss also, but they do baby Converse, which is all the rage in our house at the moment. My sister bought me some cute clothes at Lord & Taylor and I think she paid a fiver a pop.

In the UK we have lots of good stuff, the supermarkets have fantastic kids clothes at cheapo prices!!! Asda (which is owned by Walmart) has boys jeans and camo's for like $7...

Here is my favorite outfit of the moment...Shirt - Old Navy, Jeans - Asda, Converse - Babygap!!!

Old Navy had a really cute line out this fall called Rock and Crawl.. I always do searches on Ebay for Rock or Punk baby.. Utopia and Hot Topic have very cute onesies.. And this website has very cute shoes like Robeez, I bought my DD the black w/ the pink skull.. http://www.meinmindfootwear.com/mymomdadrocks.html

I LOVE LOVE LOVE Mini Boden - unfortunately their smallest size is 6-12 months (and they are generous) so you'll have to wait til your little critter is a bit bigger, but they have great stuff Chat Icon

Mini Boden

I'll add more as I think of it..... Chat Icon


ok this site is cool Sunshine's Hip Baby they have Charlie Rocket.

Small Paul is cute too but hard to find infant sizes.
I always liked Tea Collection too, which you can find on ebay for less.

Re: OK - I'm still hung up on clothing - where can I find COOL clothes for my son?

Jacob was always dressed like a boy Never a baby... I just wasn't into all the ducks, teddy bears and such...

Anyway, also I NEVER pay full price for any of his clothes an they are all name brands..

His clothes mostly come from Denny's ( his layette was from there), Century 21, Children's place, Nordstroms, Gap, Old Navy, TJ MAxx and Marshalls.

Now, that he is a toddler and I mostly dress him sweats and comfotable clothes-- I am liking Macy's.. Today I was there and bought him adorable addidas outfits, Puma, AND1, and Nike and nothing was over $10..

Oh Denny's is having a 30-50% off sale right now, but I would wait because in a month or 2 it will be on crazy sale.. I kick myself everytime I buy there now and then a month or so later it is marked down even more.

Happy shopping!!!

I agree with Old Navy. They have funky stuff. I bought some of the Rock and Crawl collection from the fall and used it for DD.
