It’s been a (long, long) while since we slipped into an ensemble from the kids' department, usually putting on a fashion show for mom in the fitting room and mixing stripes with plaid with ruffles because, hey, why not! Embrace that adventurous spirit and hear us out: Children's clothes can still be your best friends, even today. We took some inspiration from mega celeb stylist, Nicole Chavez, who once divulged to The Coveteur that she rocks pieces from the kiddie section. Perhaps our legs are a bit longer, our waists aren’t quite child-sized, and we’ve way outgrown our training bras, but we still figured out these five easy and accessible tricks that'll let us pull off children’s clothing (and save a little cash in the process). We can't promise they will work for every body type, but dust off your imagination and give it a try anyway. Your inner child, and yes, even your wallet, will thank you.
