    Default QQ about kids clothes

    Just a quick random question....

    When looking at buying kiddies clothes, do you prefer to buy as a 'set' ( matching shorts and shirt) or pick and choose separates?

    I prefer to buy sets, unless it's like a top that would look good with jeans. My pet hate is being given a top or bottom and then having to try and find something that matches. I just can't be bothered and usually just pass on to Vinnies.

    I like to pick separates because I'm not a fan of being too matchy matchy. I have been given some sets though and I just use them as separates.

    I prefer separates because DS is often a size bigger in the body and a size smaller in the bottoms so sets often cannot be worn together.

    Thanks ladies. I've asked my fb friends and fellow market friends and it seems like everyone is split right down the middle.... Guess I'll have to look into both

    Definitely separates. I rarely buy sets simply because all 3 of my children have skinny waists so the bottom is always way too big when the shirt will fit etc

    I like seperates, DS is cloth-bummed so generally takes bigger pants to tops. I enjoy putting his outfits together!
