the look for less

One thing we all enjoy about fashion is spotting a killer look and then finding it in our own price range. Our very favorite designers and brands all have their own less expensive copy-catters and isn’t there so much more satisfaction knowing you did the same for less? We wanted to challenge ourselves to do the same for our kiddos. Here’s what we found for GIRLS:

kids style: the look for less

Anchor T-shirt via J.Crew $26 // Microbe blazer  $118 // Polka Dot denim via Hanna Andersson $46 // Stuart Weitzman Glitter Flats $68
Osh Kosh B’Gosh Anchor T $8 // Tommy Girl blazer$44  // Justice Polka Dot denim $28 // JcPenney Glitter flats $17 //
And for BOYS:

kids style: the look for less


Lucky Brand denim jacket $60 // True Religion Gasoline Ringer tee $70 // Camo pants via J.Crew $60 // Serafini ankle boots $99 //

Gap denim jacket // Target raglan // Carter’s camo pants // Florsheim neon soled lace ups
Total Savings $371! If we’re being honest, most of the “For Less” pieces we prefer over “The Look”!
If you’re interested here are several more posts of inexpensive outfits from retailers like Old Navy, Wal-Mart, on up to Crew cuts and Zara, International brands like Geggamoja and Czesiociuch and darling boutiques like Louis B and Supayana!
Check them all out here.
We’d love to know, what shops are your go-to for finding on-trend pieces for less? Also, if you have any looks you’ve seen and loved that you’d like us to hunt down for you, email us: hello at smallfryblog dot com! You might just see it in a post!

    Love this! I mainly shop at Target and H&M for my kids, but the Joe Fresh line for JCP has been killing it lately. Gap has great sales sometimes, and for things like shoes and jackets I’m willing to spend a bit more, so I often turn to Boden or Crewcuts. I’m always amazed at what I can find at Walmart or TJ Maxx sometimes too though!
