Shopping for Kids' Jeans
Denim is one of the most practical materials for your kids to wear. In fact, in most cases kids grow out of their jeans before they wear out. Kids' jeans come in all the same styles as jeans for adults, but you might need to shop around to find ones that are right for your kids.
Features of Jeans for Kids
Most companies that make jeans for kids make them quite versatile. Jeans for little girls and boys, sized up to about age 5, generally have elastic or partial elastic waists. This makes them easier for you and your child to get on and off. Bigger kid sizes, up to about size 12 or 14, generally have adjustable waists. These are a great help during these growing years. Another feature that many companies use is pop fasteners instead of buttons for little hands. This often changes at about size 8 or 10, when kids' dexterity gets better.
Dress Like a Rock Star in Kids' Designer Jeans
For parents who want to make sure that their kids are dressed as cool as their favorite rock stars, kids' designer jeans are the answer. Brands such as Rock and Republic, True Religion and Diesel, worn by people like Katy Perry, Justin Bieber, Justin Timberlake, and Britney Spears, make their jeans available in kids' sizes as well. These vary in price from $100.00 - $150.00. For the most part, these designer jeans appear to be regular looking jeans that were ripped and faded in odd places.
How to Buy Skinny Jeans for Kids
Most companies make skinny jeans for kids. In the case of girls' jeans, these are often a cross between leggings and jeans, sometimes called "jeggings." They are very fitted, but can be quite comfortable because of the amount of stretch in the fabric. Skinny jeans for boys usually fit quite differently. They are generally quite roomy through the hips and thighs, then tight around the legs. Most boys like to wear them so that they slouch over their shoes, or even sit inside the tongue of their running shoes.
How to Buy Kids' Pants
Overall the experience of buying kids' pants can be quite confusing. If your child knows what they want, that makes things easier, but for younger kids with no stated preference, parents can buy a big variety. Sometimes that is the answer. Buy a bunch of different styles and take them home for your child to try on. Sometimes they will gravitate towards something that they have seen someone else wear, or sometimes they will go straight for comfort. Often they will want a variety of light and dark wash, wide and narrow leg jeans, so they can suit their particular mood of the day.
