Ah the smell of Spring is upon us, and that means bringing out the light sweaters, for chilly mornings, or for hot and humid days with plenty of cold a/c inside.
If you've got kids, then you also know it's the time when suddenly those sweaters from the beginning of school are about 2 sizes TOO small for the kids!
Back to School Shopping 102, right?
Well I have found a great, inexpensive solution:
They have some great hoodie, pullover and cardigan solutions, that can easily work into any school's dress code!
Miss Grace and I selected their Port Authority L515 Ladies Modern Stretch Cotton Cardigan to get her through the last 3 months of school!
While we know Spring is almost out the door already (SIGH), her classroom seat is right under the A/C vent, so she gets chilled during the day, so a light weight sweater is a must. This sweater is in adult sizes, and as you know, it is hard to find appropriate sweaters for pre-teens/teens, so finding a nice adult sweater for a 9 year old can be tough. Thanks to her long arms and torso, we've started to have to go into adult sizes already (double SIGH).
But as you can see, it fits her more like a longer cardigan, giving her adequate coverage in the classroom, without being over clingy. The EXTRA soft cotton makes you want to keep touching the sweater, while the touch of spandex means it will hold up to repeated washings very well! It can be washed and dried in the washer/dryer, so its easy on Mom too!
Miss Grace loves the extra length in the arms that they added into the sweater, as she can use it to pull down onto her hands, when her hands get cold! While she doesn't really need the added front and back darts, it does help the sweater to hang very well on her, as you can see. Plus, with the extra length, it should take her into the Fall with NO issues!
This cardigan comes in sizes XS to 4XL (!!), and in 7 colors, including white, black and navy, making it perfect for adding to your older child's school wardrobe! And at around $20, it's also a really good deal!
So if you need to update your child's school outerwear this Spring season, give ApparelnBags a look!
