This is one of my favorite “life hacks.” If you want something trend specific and can’t find it in the Womens department, try checking the Kids department. When I couldn’t get my hands on the above “BOOM” sweatshirt from the crazy-popular Phillip Lim for Target line, I did some research and found the equally punchy (no pun intended…) “POW” option from Forever21 Girls.
Since big retail chains offer more size variety, kids sizes can go up to a size XXL or 16 (which is the equivalent of a size 8). One thing to be aware of is that kids clothes won’t be tailored to your shape the way adult clothes are, but it still does the job when you’re looking to achieve a trend!
In a case like this, having the sweatshirt fall shorter at the bottom hem and on the sleeves, isn’t a bad thing. Crop top anyone?
Have you ever scored something amazing in the Kids department? Let me know in the comments!
