We know they’ll grow out of them.
We know that children’s clothes aren’t in it for the long haul.
But we also know that when it comes to making sure our kids are well dressed (for whatever that means), it’s impossible to resist a bargain. From chic baby clothes to rugged toddler clothes, you don’t want to spend more than you have to.
So we’ve taken some of the guesswork out of finding the best children’s discount clothing sites for you. Our judgment was simple: are the clothes affordable, adorable, and something new?
While many of these sites only deliver within the U.S., we’ve also got everything you need to know about how Forwardme helps you shop in the U.S. and deliver anywhere in the world.
1. Nordstrom Rack
While Nordstrom is renowned for high-end and luxury goods, Nordstrom Rack is perfect for clearance pieces at prices that won’t break the bank. Not only do they carry a huge range of brand names, but there is also the signature Nordstrom line. If you’re looking for a one-stop shop for your children’s clothing, this is definitely worth a second look.
2. Cookie’s Kids
If you and your little ones are fans of popular labels, then Cookie’s Kids is a department store you need to know about like yesterday.
Cookie’s Kids has regular deals and bargains for a huge range of children’s clothing, including some impressive deals on brand names like Levi’s, Nautica, and The North Face.
3. Gap Kids
The quintessential American comfort-clothing brand is ideal when you’re looking for robust, high-quality staples for your kids. Gap Kids covers ages 0–12 with bright colors and classic styles.
Gap Kids also supplies a great range of accessories, like shoes and bags, so you can fill the wardrobe in just one shop.
4. Cat & Jack (Target)
While fashion and Target may not be automatically linked in your mind, bear with us here. Cat & Jack is Target’s toddler clothing line, and they offer playful takes on traditional pieces. With that classic Target pricing, you'll be pleased with the price while your child is delighted with their new outfits.
Remember that to make the most when shopping at Target, sign up for the Target Red Card, which gives you a 5% discount on purchases. It doesn’t sound like much, but every little helps.
5. Old Navy
Old Navy is an American staple brand and for good reason. Their clothes are well-made and at great prices. Make the most of shopping here by investing in shirts, jeans, dresses, and swimwear.
It’s worth signing up for their newsletter, as they’re constantly launching sales, and this is the best way to get the most for your money. Remember that with Forwardme, you can store your packages and then consolidate them, thereby saving huge amounts on shipping.
JCPenney has always offered the best of fast fashion at the most affordable prices. It’s a one-stop shop to get everything you need, and don’t forget to check out their coupons, sales, and red zone clearance deals. With all of this applied, its already reasonable prices become a serious steal.
7. Hanna Andersson
While Hanna Andersson is a little more expensive than some brands on this list, it’s definitely worth considering investing in their clothing. With comfort and durability in mind, Hanna Andersson regularly runs sales and clearances, which keeps the prices low. Not only that, but every purchase from the store benefits a child in need, so if you’re looking to help the world while you shop, check out their deals on kids' clothes.
Another brand with a higher price tag, Maisonette, is incredible for luxury and one-of-a-kind brands. If you're looking for something special for a birthday or family event, check out their offerings to build your children a one-of-a-kind wardrobe that’s as original as they are.
9. The Tot
If you’re concerned about exposing your children and the environment to unpleasant toxins, then The Tot may be exactly what you’re looking for. This eco-brand is devoid of any unpleasant things, from pesticides and chemicals to harmful dyes. If you’re hoping to start your little eco-warrior off young, this is a great way to invest in their wardrobe—and their future.
10. French Toast
While French Toast is actually a school uniform store, that doesn’t mean you won’t find suitable clothing for your kids here. Check out their offerings for staples like polo shirts, khakis, or white blouses.
Another store worth watching for sales is Gymboree, which sells high-quality clothing at decent prices. One of the best things about Gymboree is that you can take advantage of their sales and clearance and invest in pieces your kids can grow into.
Also available at Gymboree, Crazy8 offers lower prices for excellent clothing options. Crazy8 prices tend to be considerably lower than Gymboree, and just like their older sibling, you can enjoy incredible savings during the sales and clearances.
13. Carter's & OshKosh B'Gosh
Carter’s and OshKosh B’Gosh make clothes for the 0- to 14-year-old crowd and sell some really lovely staple pieces that are well worth an investment. Keep an eye on the clearance site and sign up for their newsletter to make the most of the discounts you can get from them.
If you’re a sucker for a brand name, then 6pm is definitely a site you’ll want to bookmark. They update their offers daily, and you can find hundreds of familiar brand names all at markdown prices. If you have a budding fashionista on your hands, this is the perfect gift.
Similar to 6 p.m., Zulily offers daily flash sales of everything from brand names to high-quality staples. Inventory is limited, so this isn’t a site just to browse and bookmark; you’ll need to be ready to make a purchase or risk disappointment!
How To Save Money on Children’s Clothes

Not only that, but by consolidating your parcels, you can go shopping at various US online stores while saving money on shipping. It’s a win-win for you and your children’s wardrobe!
