So we live in Germany and the options for baby clothes, especially boy's clothes, are quite narrow and rather dull and boring (everything is either brown or blue, ho hum). I've gotten quite a few hand-me-downs and gifts from American friends that I absolutely love though, for example Carter's (including Just One Year and Just One You) and some really cute sleepers from Circo. We'll be in the US for December, so I'm thinking I could order some stuff online now to be delivered to me there.

What are some good online shops with cute baby clothes? I've already ordered a couple pairs of fleece pants from Old Navy, and I see Target has some Carter's and Circo stuff. I was thinking maybe some of you know less-popular sites I may not have heard of. I love colorful stuff! Of course reasonably priced is nice, but doesn't have to be cheap. On the other hand, I'm not willing to pay, say, $50 for a pair of baby pants. TIA!

The Children's Place is my absolute favorite! I adore their clothes.

Gymboree has cute stuff too!

I know you said it doesn't need to be cheap, but I figured I'd plug The Children's Wear Outlet anyway, because they do often have really cute stuff and you can't beat paying $12 for an entire outfit from head to toe!

Wow, I just looked at the childrenswearoutlet and cannot believe how cheap it is!  Have you ordered from there? What do you think of the quality of the clothes?

Thanks

There's a great French clothing store that we bought tons from last time we were in France - Du Pareil au Meme (DPAM).  I'd think shipping within the EU would be pretty cheap, and they probably even have some stores in Germany.  Their prices were quite reasonable, we thought.

My favorite clothes for baby boys are Zutano and Speesees.  They both make colorful fun clothes.  This site sometimes has Zutano for cheap (although their selection right now is pretty dismal) but also other brands for great prices.

I have ordered from there before. The quality is just fine! It's not organic or all natural fibers, if that is a concern for you. Otherwise, totally worth it. smile.gif

This is my favorite store, hands down. You didn't mention organic, but this place is. I also can find great deals there (if you get on the mailing list, they send coupon codes really frequently). I tend to wait until I can get $100 worth (for free shipping) and a coupon code for 25% off, then shop the sales on top of that.

Anyhow, they tend to have some of the amenities I see in regular store bought clothing that I don't find in organics usually. (like adjustable waists and lots of patterns.

Wish DD would still wear clothes from there!  Great prices and usually an awesome selection.

I second the recommendation for speeses. They're awesome. Also just saw a new label (new to me, anyway) called kicky pants that had *the* softest fabric.

 

But as far as the original poster's question, I buy a lot of things from Target and Old Navy because I can afford it, and the stuff is decent.

Yes, we do. H&M is the only place that has cute baby clothes. But they have about 3x more girls clothes than boys, it's kind of annoying.
