So I bought a sweater from the children's section of J.Crew, an act I had promised myself that I'd never do, regardless of retailer. For a gal who questions whether or not she should be stepping into a Forever 21, moving even further back on the age bracket may seem a bit ill-advised.
I mean, though technically I can fit into some big kids' clothes doesn't necessarily mean that I should be wearing big kids' clothes, right?
Pros? Kids clothing are usually more wallet-friendly. The sleeve length often fit better for a shortie like myself. And sometimes the styles are a bit more fun.
Cons: Kids clothing can be cut to fit strangely for an adult because - well, dur. The materials often don't feel as nice. And the styles sometimes are a bit too fun.
But I broke my own rule with this sweater because I thought the green pattern was lovely. And though the sleeves are a bit wide, I figure it just makes things easier overall for layering and the chunkier fit will keep me nice and toasty.
Do you ladies ever peruse or shop the kids section? Can you recommend any brand offering kid items for adult tastes? Actually, don't tell me. Actually, tell me.
