Is your mini-me due for some new gear? If your little one has outgrown their winter clothes from last year, it’s time to get shopping!
Shopping for kids’ clothes can seem like a daunting task at first, but with so many affordable and stylish fashion items at Grand Central, your kids are sure to be fashion stars in no time. From the creative dreamers to the tiny explorers, there’s an outfit to suit every personality.
Plus, we’ve done all the hard work for you by rounding up five easy-peasy ways to revamp your little love’s wardrobe for the season ahead. Read on to uncover our top tips.
1. Source new basics
The best place to start is with the basics. Think: t-shirts, sweaters, and jogger pants for everyday wear, which they can mix-and-match all season long.
Look for comfortable, soft, stretchy fabrics like cotton, which will keep their shape while letting your kids free to play to their heart’s content. Let’s face it, children love a bit of rough and tumble. With this in mind, you’ll want to make sure these items are composed of quality fabrics that will withstand some wear and tear.

2. Bring in some of their favourite things
Is your little one into trucks? Or perhaps unicorns are where it’s at? Whatever it is that your little one loves, clothing that features their favourite characters is sure to be a recipe for success.
This season, the stores in the centre have every interest covered—from dinosaurs and fairies, through to Bluey and Disney characters.

As the temperature gets cooler, you’ll want to have some knits and cardigans on hand to keep the kids cosy and warm. These are the perfect staples to layer over basics like singlets or t-shirts when the wind chill sets in.
This season, stripes, spots and exotic animal prints are all trending, giving you an opportunity to bring a bit of fun and colour into their winter fashionwear.
