Children across the country are getting ready to go back to school which also means they’re in need of a new wardrobe. If your kids are anything like mine, they’ve grown a size or two since the last school year. Shopping for kids can be hard, especially if you’re looking for clothes thatare comfortable, but also durable. That’s why City Threads is the perfect option for back to school shopping!

Mix and Match Basics 

I’ve been letting my kids pick out their own outfits for quite a few years. Some of my kids have wanted that independence while others pick out their clothes out of necessity because mornings can get a bit crazy. Sometimes this means that they come to breakfast in some crazy outfits with clashing patterns or mixing cartoon characters. What I love about City Threads is that most of their clothing options are color basics so my kids can mix and match their clothes no problem. They also have some adorable patterned leggings for girls that go with so many of their solid colored tops. Having these options in my kids’ drawers helps foster their independence of getting dressed on their own with much less arguing about whether or not their outfit matches. 


I have a few kids who can be a bit picky about how their clothes feel on their body. They want something soft with minimal seams. City threads has incredibly soft clothing options for kids. With many 100% organic cotton, jersey, and nylon pieces, my kids love the feel of their City Threads clothes. And for children with sensory or allergy challenges, City Threads has clothes that will help your child feel comfortable at school rather than thinking about their itchy clothing. 


When buying new clothes for the school year, durability is definitely something I consider. I need clothes that are going to last my kids all year long and it’s a bonus if they can be passed down to the next kid too. City threads uses only quality fabrics that last! They are made to wash well and last through many cycles of laundry which is great because your kids will be wearing these outfits over and over again. 

Made in the USA 

One of the best things about City Threads is that all of their clothing pieces are made in the USA. Not only are they able to make sure that all the production is made with American quality and standards, but they’re also providing jobs. When you buy from City Threads, you’re supporting an American business and local families.

Whether you’re looking for dresses, shirts, pants, underwear, school uniforms, or pajamas, City Threads has just the right pieces for your kids to feel comfortable and confident in this upcoming school year. They even have a few clothing pieces for adults that you may just want to slip into your cart too.

Hey, you deserve it!
