Children's Clothing from Debenhams

Yorkshire Blog, Mummy Blogging, Parent Blog, Christmas Feature,

As a parent of 2 young boys, we go through tons of clothing. After messy play, crafts, baking, gluing, outdoor play, you can imagine just how much mess a child can make so we are forever throwing clothes away or trying to remove stains which just felt like a waste. 

On the other hand though, I thought that buying cheap clothing would mean that we would end up having to go and spend more to replace them. As the saying goes 'buy cheap, buy twice' because cheap clothing usually has rubbish stitching, goes out of shape and always of bad quality. 

We instead go for good quality clothing that is at the right price for us. When we were sent some items from Debenhams for Thomas, I was delighted as not only do there clothes outlive most other brands with their durability but they are also stylish too.

With the changing seasons at the minute, it is great to have a variation of different styles to wear and so Thomas and I picked as much range as possible. 

Our first item was a nice pair of shoes. Wanting something that was not only going to be comfortable but looked a bit formal too and suited all styles was quite hard to find but eventually we chose these bluezoo trainers which seem to have a bit of everything.
They are navy blue but have brown panels and sole and have 2 Velcro fasteners so even small children can fasten them. Inside, they are actually quite padded so will keep toes warm in this freezing weather and are also comfortable for Thomas to walk in and don't rub him.

Thinking of other items that are necessary for the cold chill, Thomas chose a pack of two bluezoo printed pyjamas which come in grey and navy bases with vibrant yellow and white trims and decorations. Both pairs are long sleeved and one pair even has a colourful vampire character which glows in the dark.

We thought having 2 pairs of bottoms would be the staple items as we could then style around them. Opting for totally different items, our first choice was a pair of bluezoo blue carpenter jeans which have an elasticated waist for a more comfortable fit and 7 pockets on them.

I think the pockets, one including a zip on the leg, make them look a little different and more stylish. The elastic waist with drawstring fastening means that they can be altered to fit too which is great as Thomas has always had a small waist.

Secondly, we went for a pair of Rocha.John Rocha trousers which, like the jeans, have a drawstring fastening and extra pockets. I like the fact that they are a designed brand from Debenhams but still come in at low prices.

We went for these 2 as then we could create different outfits out of them by changing the t-shirts to suit.

Lastly, we picked out the tops that would make the outfits stand out. Keeping them all long sleeved since it is so cold at the moment, we picked out the ones that stood out the most and the ones that Thomas liked. Of course, Thomas' first choice was a lovely red pirate t-shirt and then secondly, a blue one with a truck on it and 'T is for Truck' embellished upon it. I love the fact that Thomas always chooses the bright colours and always shows his own unique style.

I then picked another 2 to match his outfits. An 'I may be small but I talk big' t-shirt in green and red and a 'little man, big trouble' t-shirt in navy blue. I love slogan t-shirts and thought that these 2 would match in perfectly and any of the tops can be changed to wear with either pair of bottoms for a fab look.

The bluezoo cable knitted jumper completes the collection of clothes that we chose. This cable knit jumper has chunky ribbed trims and looks great with the jeans and the trousers too. I love the bold blue colour and the fact that it is so chunky means that it will keep Thomas warm all through the cold winter months.

It's so easy to make a whole winter wardrobe using just these staple items from Debenhams.

  1. I love Debenhams for my kids but I wish they would sort their instore stock a little, I went yesterday to buy some shoes and a jumper (the same as the blue one you have but in red) and neither were in stock. Their sales are usually good.
