Summer Fashion: Lands’ End (for kids)

In my opinion, the best clothes for small children are comfortable, well-made, affordable, and SIMPLE.

We tend to stay away from snaps, buttons, frills, lace, collars, cartoon characters, and sassy sayings. In fact, my 3-year-old doesn’t even like jeans because they require a button and a zip.

When we shop, we look for soft materials, elastic waists, plain tees, slip-on pants, and breezy dresses.

As a result, we LOVE brands like Lands’ End (these pieces are exactly our style):

I’m swooning over those bright colors. You?

And just wait until you see the prices!

Left to Right: French Terry Pedal Pusher Shorts ($10.99), Knit Full Skort ($9.99), Short Sleeve Shirred Dress ($19.50), Short Sleeve Super-T ($4.99), Short Sleeve Tie-dye Mesh Polo Shirt ($11.99), and Vintage Fleece Shorts ($14.50).

If you’re a bargain hunter, you’ll want to bookmark the Lands’ End Overstocks section of the website, where you can save up to 65%. Here’s an example of a great find: girls’ leggings for $3.99!

  1. Carrington says

    Wow, I love that little photo of her in the blue dress! I adore Lands End for all the same reasons, and I never knew about their overstock section! That rocks!

  2. jjean says

    Land’s End has great quality clothes, I have to say. Another tip for the bargain shopper, go through Ebates (2%) or some similar site for extra cash back. I didn’t know they had an overstock section, either. I am checking it out. :) Thanks!

  3. susan says

    I agree with simple. It is hard to find well-made, comfortable clothes however these looks like they fit the bill. We’ll have to check them out.

  4. Molly says

    I love the little polo shirts! And I especially love that Land’s End doesn’t splatter logos or graphics all over their clothing. There are so many kids’ clothes that I love, but I hate the writing on them. I’ll definitely keep Land’s End in mind.

  5. Emily says

    Land’s End clothes have held up so well for us, too. We used to live near an inlet that I’d haunt around the change of seasons, but there are some really good deals on their website if you’re lucky!

  6. kristen says

    Land’s End is such a great company! Thanks for the reminder to check out their overstocks! I am always up for a great deal… And the quality of their products really makes them worthwhile.

  7. says

    Love these cute and simple clothes. I haven’t shopped on their site, but will definitely be shopping there in the future.

    And I would love to win this for my 2-year-old who is quickly outpacing older sister’s hand-me-downs :)

  8. says

    Lands’ End is one of my first online stops when shopping for the girls. Their quality and sizing is very consistent and I always come away with items that are well worth their price. They are also very nice to send good coupons to customers!

  9. says

    Um, yes please! My “toddler” is wearing size 5 now and I’m forever on the hunt for new clothes as it seems like he’s growing out of something every day!

  10. says

    Lands’ End is the only catalog I get in the mail (because of a couple of maternity items I got on clearance almost five years ago). And every time it comes I try to make myself throw it away before I open it because I inevitably want everything in there.

    I still remember clearly a few favorite Lands’ End outfits I had when I was eleven. So I definitely agree that they’re comfortable, simple and good quality for kids.

  11. Chrissy MacCEO says

    Lands End is one of our favorite online stores to shop at! Their clothing washes the best and their shoes are so supportive for little feet! Thanks for another great giveaway!

  12. says

    I love to keep it simple as well! The bright colors just make me think summer too! Besides, when you keep it simple, things can be passed down, without looking dated!

  13. says

    Simple, comfy, colorful, and “breezy” (as you say) describe the perfect outfits around here. I bought Emma a pair of of skinny capris from Carters earlier this year because they were on super clearance, and she will not wear them because they are not comfy. And you know what, they don’t look comfy, so shame on me for buying them. I just have to stop being lazy and buying everything from Target. Sometimes you get what you pay for!

  14. Mikaela says

    I LOVE Lands End for my son’s clothes (and me too!). They are made so well and outlast most of his other clothes while being affordable.

    Whoo-hoo for all the recent giveaways! :)

  15. says

    The blue dress looks really comfortable…I frankly didn’t know that Land’s End sold children’s clothes?! I’m going to look into it…I love all the funky girls’ clothes on the market, but sometimes you just want something SIMPLE.

  16. says

    I love Land’s End. we buy most of our school clothes from them. i love buying my daughter monogrammed sweaters to go over her uniforms!

  17. Deborah Buckingham says

    Most of the clothes I have for my daughter are hand-me-downs, and there are so many pieces that are too hard to get on her, so I don’t bother having her wear them. I have to say that actual buttons, tiny buttons, are so hard to get buttoned with a squirmy 1-year old.

  18. Krista S. says

    I love Land’s End! Such quality clothes, I could pass them on to all my kids! And what you said about picking clothes is so right on. I didn’t always think about that, then would buy clothes that ended up being such a pain!

  19. says

    I love how your little one is modeling her dress! She is beautiful. I really think she and Analise would have a blast together. Two three year olds, dresses, tutus, and lots of personality = a GREAT time!

  20. says

    I didn’t know Lands End made kids clothes! Um, and your daughter is SO darned adorable – all the time but she just looks sassy and confident and lovely in that pic.
    Anyhow, I will definitely be checking this site out. Lilly is similar in not liking buttons and zippers – and who can blame her! She is just gaining confidence with potty training but doesn’t need anything making her need help when she wouldn’t otherwise.
    Heading over to that overstocks page on their website now…

  21. says

    I have to definitely agree with your best clothing for kids….and for mom’s too ( :

    Simple, comfy and affordable= perfect!

    My favorite has to be the green dress. I love how Audrey looks in that color.

  22. Tari Lawson says

    One thing I would get for sure is the Boys’ Short Sleeve National Treasures Grand Canyon Graphic T-shirt. We were just there last month so this would be a great momento for my son.

  23. Carol says

    You truly have a gorgeous family!

    I love Lands’ End. I’ve raised four kids in simple, basic, quality clothing, and always could depend on their products.

  24. Jennifer T says

    You have such gorgeous girls! I’m sure you’re told that all the time.
    We like those types of clothing for our kids too. It’s good to know they can stay fashionable *hehe* and still stay comfy. Especially during the potty training times when pull on pants are essential!

  25. jen says

    oh my gosh, could your little one pose any more for you, shes a little fashion model! good thing mommy has a camera in hand at all times right!?!

    we love lands end too, we get ours from sears and we use the soft cottons as well!

  26. Hannah Sewell says

    I LOVE Land’s End. Their products are so durable but they are a bit out of my price range. Glad to know they have an overstock section. Thanks a bunch for the info :-).

  27. Sarah R says

    The picture of your daughter is so cute. I love how she “models!” Land’s End is the best, isn’t it? We live in WI and the company is based here so I am fortunate to have a Land’s End store right around the corner! PS – They have great women’s bathing suits too.

    • Stephanie says

      You’re so lucky to have an LE shop so close! Do they have good deals there? I’ve always wanted to try a Lands’ End swimsuit…I hear that they’re the best of the best.

      • Sarah R says

        They are pretty good deals. My mom just spent 2 hours there and walked out with 2 suits, which is a miracle for her (she’s very picky). It’s just nice to try something on before you buy!

  28. says

    That blue looks gorgeous on her! I haven’t actually tried Lands End kids since I was a kid. I have to say that their styling has gotten MUCH cuter since then. It used to be very boring and preppy. I love the mix and match colors and bold prints they offer these days.

  29. Sarah Hirsch says

    Those bright colors are great. Very nice for basics, and the tye-dye is very in style right now.

  30. Melinda J says

    I went and looked at that polo shirt and I have to add that I love the way they have the sizes laid out on their site. Thanks for the fun shopping!!!

  31. Ashley says

    I am swooning too…their colors are so bold! Our kids are all about comfort and would enjoy a new outfit from Land’s End!

  32. danielle says

    I didn’t know about the Lands End overstock section of their website thats good to know. Love the dress Kayla is sporting.

  33. says

    Land’s End is one of the companies that I think of when I think of quality clothes that last a long time. I love their adult clothing, so their children’s lines are probably also a great buy. I also like that it seems as though their clothing is made for children…it is age appropriate and ready for playing!

  34. Christine Jensen says

    I love how Lands End always keeps their look classic! Awesome, thanks for the chance to win some great clothes for one of my kids ;)

  35. Katelyn says

    I’ve never thought of Lands’ End for children’s clothing. Definitely going to have to check out their overstocks. Thanks!

  36. says

    I have shopped lands end for myself but never for my daughter. They have great deals and I am definitely going to keep them in mind. Shoes too! They are always so expensive or poorly made so I would love to try them for her.

  37. Amy M says

    Land’s End has such great quality clothes. They’re so durable, they last a long time so they’re a staple in our wardrobe!

  38. Andrea says

    I love the clothes that I bought for my son. After using them for long they still look nice. I would day they are good value for the money.

  39. Janelle says

    Simple and comfy is how we do it here! Although, I must admit I LOVE my little girl in a pair of designer jeans (purchased from ebay of course!). She however insists on comfy cozy. Lands End is a definite go to for us! Cute, comfy clothes!

  40. says

    We LOVE Land’s End. Mostly because they have incredible winter gear and when you live in MN you care about that kind of stuff. :) But I really should check them out more often during the summer months. Their stuff is always affordable and always of great quality.

  41. Susan P says

    Lands End is great! I mostly buy thrift store clothes and get hand-me downs from friends for the kids though. I will definitely check out the overstocks category, especially as the kids get older!

  42. AutumH says

    My grandmother used to buy my brother and I clothes from Lands End all the time. When I was in my teens I thought they were a little “blah” but as a mother now I love the simplicity and ease with which you can pair up their basics. Plus they seem to last a bit better than generic brands.

  43. says

    Those are exactly the types of clothes we like around here too. Sugar’s favorite play outfits are simple t-shirt dresses, they are comfy and easy to wear. Land’s End is great – I really do appreciate the quality of their clothing.

  44. says

    thanks for sending me to the outlet. $130 later I have 4 shoes for the girls and several uniform items for Jade. that so wasn’t my plan for today, but they were adorable and great prices.

  45. Michele J. says

    I couldn’t agree with you more! They really do have some great pieces. My favorite is the Short Sleeve Shirred Dress – it’s something that I know my three year old would enjoy wearing.

  46. says

    i love plain tshirts, and skirts or shorts or pants for my girls, but it is hard to find at most stores. i always forget about land’s end. i do love the skirts with shorts (i think they are called scooters) from kohl’s. we have tons of them!

  47. Abbi says

    I like land’s end clothes too. They are good quality. I also like simple and don’t prefer words on clothing either.

  48. Denise says

    My daughter has so few clothes right now and they all came from Walmart. I really need to get her some nicer things soon.

  49. says

    I am with you on the simple and comfortable part. I have heard great things about Lands End kids clothing. I hae had my eye on a couple things, but forget to keep checking for sales! :P

  50. says

    I haven’t ever bought anything from Lands End but I always have wondered what their clothing items were like – I didn’t even realize that they carried a kids line.

    auutmn398 @

  51. Lori says

    The clothes look comfortable and that is the most important thing to my kids and my husband! They are cute as well, so it is a bonus!

  52. Debra @ A Frugal Friend says

    Oh my goodness I didn’t even know Lands End had kids clothes. How awesome. My almost 3 year old is wearing size 5 clothes….so tall. I’m in need of some serious shopping.

  53. Kirsten says

    Honestly, I didn’t know they had such cute clothes! I will definitely check out the sales. Thanks.

  54. Sariah says

    I have never purchased anything from Land’s End before but they look fabulous! I love the picture of the girl in the blue dress and bet my son would be adorable in these clothes and best of all comfortable!

  55. Kristi C says

    I love Land’s End. The company makes such quality products. The polo shirt would look great on my son.

  56. Monique Rizzo says

  57. says

    I really like Lands End clothing, great quality and great prices! And sometimes simple is best! I love the Chelsea Tunic dress and the rain jackets! The backpacks are cute too!

  58. says

    I think this is the first time I’ve browsed Lands’ End clothing in the Summer. Always loved Lands’ End items for the winter months and for back to school but never noticed how awesome their Summer clothes are too!! Thanks!

  59. Erica says

    I love the comfort, the versatility, and the great prices of Lands End! My kids would love these (and if I got them in Taylor’s size, the quality is good enough that I’m sure they’d last until Tiny needs them, too!).

  60. Lo says

    I’ve been a huge Land’s End fan since I was a teenager. Classic, durable clothing. No reason it isn’t perfect for my kids as well!

  61. Heather says

    I’ve never heard of Land’s End before, but I think its my new favorite! I definitely think kids clothes should be simple not only because its easier for me but it is much more comfortable for them! Thanks for the contest!

  62. Becca says

    For some reason I never remember to shop at Lands End. I don’t know why, I think that Target has brainwashed me. Horrible, I know.

  63. Dee says

    Land’s End is the one place where I can get everyone their clothes. They’re awesome and last a long time. Love the Overstocks and kids stuff, in particular!

  64. says

    We love Land’s end – they are one of the only places my tall skinny husband can get jeans that fit (he’s size 30 / 36 – instead of the more normal 36 / 30…)

    Haven’t tried any of their kids stuff yet but mostly we’ve been given hand-me-downs so far. I hear you about keeping it simple! That’s essential when doing early toilet training too. Although sometimes we’ll put something more fiddly on if it’s adorable enough…

  65. says

    I adore Lands End and was just discussing with my friend how stellar their customer service is AND the quality. The only thing from them that I currently have for my daughter is a waterproof mattress pad for her crib, but that thing is so luxe and well made, I need to get another for when this one is in the wash! I have been meaning to get her some items from their clothing line!

  66. says

    WE love Lands End. They are some great quality, and like you said, great prices.

    I love checking out the overstocks and getting wonderful deals. It’s especially nice this time of year getting ready for school

  67. Soni says

    Lands End is great for basics! They are talking, too, about adding a Made in the USA line to their collections (they used to have an extensive one) so I’m hoping this happens! Good giveaway :)

  68. Christina says

    I love Lands End and wish they still carried more in Sears stores. Shipping is fast, but I am oh so impatient!

  69. angie says

    I have recently bought a few Land’s End pieces at my Sears store, and love them, they are amazingly good quality for the price, and I love the basics. It makes it fun for my 5 year old to mix n match. I am a loyal Land’s End customer!

  70. says

    My parents were always huge Lands End fans, and for some reason, I always thought of them as being on the more pricey end…thanks for pointing out their very reasonable prices! I would love to have an outfit from them for my little girl!

  71. Mary A says

    I would love to get my son the t-shirt with the giant squid going after the whale. I think he would really like it. Thanks for the giveaway.

  72. Sarah T. says

    We definitely like simple, classic, mix-n-match clothing without cheesy characters or sayings splashed all over them. I guess I’d never thought of Land’s End as a “kid’s company” – but it looks like they make some great things for little ones too!

  73. Julie G says

    Land’s End is one of our favorite brands. I love their diaper bags, their shoes, their outerwear and their super-soft clothes. One of my favorite lines was last summer’s butterfly dress with leggings for girls. So cute!

  74. sara says

    We love Land’s End clothes and would love to try out their baby line because their adult clothes are so soft and comfy!

  75. says

    Very cute clothes. I always look through their catalog but I never buy anything because I am mostly looking clothes for me and to me their clothes are to “mommy” or “old lady”. Do you get what I mean? But these are some cute clothes for my kids.

  76. Aura says

    Love the quality and classic styles of lands end but they’re sizing is huge- they also usually have free shipping which is really nice and they’re overstocks have great deals. My favorite item we got there is the fireman hooded towel for my son, wish those would go on sale sometime.

  77. Hahnah Ellington says

    Lands’ End clothing is so great! I’ve ordered several items from them and am always very happy with it! I hope I win :)

  78. Emilie says

    I love Land’s End! Their clothes are such great quality and they are so cute. I love that the clothing is often basic, which makes it easy to pair with anything in the closet!

  79. says

    I’ve often swooned over Lands End. Your way of dressing your girls is very similar to my philosophy. Kids’ work is their play so dress appropriately! I hate seeing restrictive clothes on them. I find it hard to find good play clothes for girls in particular. It’s like they’re just miniature grown-up clothes.

  80. Ashley says

    I love all the designs of these clothes. Kids deserve to look stylish also :) very cute interested in purchasing also!

  81. Shannon F. says

    Land’s End makes such classic clothing, my oldest can wear this outfit and they’ll last for many handmedowns!

  82. Elsie says

    Thanks for the introduction to Lands End!!

    I adore the bright aqua dress, and the other colors are exciting too!

    What a worthwhile site, I am so impressed!

  83. LaurenS says

    I’m always on the look out for places to buy my kids clothes and shoes. The overstock section is one that I will keep in mind next time.

  84. Janelle says

    My son is all about comfy clothes! I love Lands End for me but have not tried their kids clothes yet. This would be a great opportunity to try them!

  85. Lona W says

    I love the Boys’ Vintage Fleece Shorts. It is so hard to find cute boy’s clothes. This would be great to win!

  86. Katie R. says

    I wasn’t even aware that Lands End sold kids clothing. They look like they would be very comfortable.

  87. Carol G says

    Land’s End has been a favorite for adult clothing, and I know that an outfit from them for my grandson would be a good one.

  88. Snowflake07 (Audra) says

    I love the Little Girls’ Short Sleeve Mesh Polo Dress in red. They have some really cute dresses to choose from.

  89. Nicole L. says

    My mother in law is constantly buying my stepson stuff from Lands’ End. It’s her favorite shop in the world and I’m certainly not complaining. We end up with sweaters, swimsuits, and we even got a nightstand from her and they were all Lands’ End. At least I never have to worry about the quality of the stuff she sends.

  90. Molly K. says

    I have always shopped at Lands End for myself but I never realized they had such cute kids clothes. I will definetly be checking them out for back to school shopping this fall!!

  91. shawna says

    They have such cute afforable clothing, would love to pick out some stuff for my daughter for school.

  92. Carolsue says

    I would love to win — my son is in desparate need of pants for pre-school and they have some cute ones!

  93. Kelley says

    The quality and style of Lands End clothes is fantastic. I love that their styles are clean and classic.

  94. Annette E says

    My son could use some new clothes for school. I like the Big Kids’ Long Sleeve Solid Mesh Polo Shirt.

  95. Bao says

    I heart Land’s End! Love how soft & durable the material is. I would love to win this. Thank you so much!!

  96. Karen says

    We love Lands End clothes because they are simple but well-made out of quality material. My boys want simple and easy, and I want clothes that will last and wash easily. As we look ahead to back-to-school, buying clothes from Lands End will defnitely make the outfitting part of the process a snap!

  97. Heather M says

    I would get the Caroline Smocked Shirt, the Stretch Slim Leg Jeans and the Ruffle Ballet shoes in Grey!

  98. Marcia says

    The 5 year old granddaughter starts kindergarten in Sept and I know we’ll find some great back-to-school clothes for her

  99. Nicole Greene says

    I’ve actually have never shopped at Land’s End–but, I am definitely looking forward to it–she looks adorable in that beautiful blue dress!!

  100. Viva says

    Lands End makes great quality clothes for a reasonable price. They always have fun, bright colors to choose from. I love the Tie Dye Gull Gray Multi Swirl shirt.

  101. Jana says

    We love Lands End. We bought our daughter’s raincoat and boots there last fall. Their newest back-to-school catalog is adorable – fancy leggings, adorable sweaters… :)

  102. jeanine says

    lands end has the cutest clothes!my only issue if i won would be picking which of my littles to get this for!

  103. Jennifer R says

    We love Lands End clothing… it lasts great for my active children. They love their new Tie Dyed Shirts and I love the new Trekker line of pants and shoes.

  104. says

    I love that I can order from Lands’ End online and return to Sears stores if something doesn’t work. Little things like that let me know that a company is looking out for my best interest – plus it helps that the quality is fantastic.

  105. ReggieMann says

    I’d love to get the Little Girls’ Jersey Skort in Orchid Petal Delicate Floral

    ReggieM1961 [at] gmail [dot] com

  106. momznite says

    They have some great cotton basics, such as the Toddler Girls’ Long Sleeve Shirred T-shirt in orchid petal.

  107. tina reynolds says

    I like the blue dress, its cute, I also liked the Girls’ Pleated Corduroy Skort my daughter loves skirts. thanks for the chance

  108. Gianna says

    I love the Girls’ Ruffle-front Dress (grey) & Girls’ Shirred Ruffle-hem Dress (pink) cute clothes! I have 4 girls so i’m always on the lookout for dresses.

  109. Renee WeME says

    Both my boys like clothes. I just want to keep ‘m warm this winter. I like the fleece wear/
    Homepage > Boys > Pants & Shorts
    Lands’ End Boys’ Fleece Pants Pewter Heather
