The top 6 list is here of affordable children's clothing stores. Yes, it's definitely possible to dress your kids in cute trendy clothes at a cheap price point. All of these stores are reliable reputable US brands.

1. The Children’s Place

Although very affordable and budget friendly, The Children’s Place gives off an exclusive and fun boutique vibe, especially if you’re shopping in store. Small, intimate stores and captivating clothing designs make for a great shopping experience.

You won’t break your budget shopping online or in person at The Children’s Place, despite its upscale look. Be aware that at full price regardless of in store or online, certain clothing options can be pricey there (e.g. outerwear). On the other hand, many standard and other hard-to-find items are quite cheap (e.g. winter boots).

There is almost always a sale or special promotion running online at The Children’s Place, and this is why it's my favorite go-to for my kids clothes. You won't need to pay full price. They cover all ages of children, from newborn to size 18.

2. Carter’s and OshKosh B'gosh

Carter's and OshKosh B'gosh are sibling brands which share a combined online store and shopping cart, so you can shop from both at once. Carter's is the cheaper brand, while OshKosh B'gosh items tend to be slightly more expensive - but not by as much as you'd think. You can still get the famous OshKosh B'gosh kids denim overalls and jeans for the same price as discount store jeans if you shop when there's a sale happening.

Both brands have a great selection of clothing from newborn to kids size 14. Sales and discounts are offered frequently.

3. Gymboree

The upscale preppy look of popular brand Gymboree comes at a cheaper than ever price point now that it's owned by The Children's Place. Gymboree clothes are fun, playful, and have plenty of detailing.

Whether you're looking for photo day clothes, or clothing that can go from the playground to dinner out, or you just want your children to be dressed nicely, Gymboree is a great choice. Sizing goes from 12 months to 12 years old.

4. Old Navy

Yes, the popular casual wear brand Old Navy has baby, toddler and children's clothes. In addition to that, they sell clothing for adults too. It's the most affordable of the Gap family of brands. I feel that you get better value for money there for your kids than for adults though. Children's sizing at Old Navy starts at 0-3 months and goes all the way through high school. Their designs are really neat - your child will look well put-together.

Old Navy has good low prices and frequently offers online and in-store specials. Unlike shopping at a department store, you won’t be able to find the Old Navy children’s clothes anywhere else – its own site is the best place to snag their deals.

5. Gerber Childrenswear

Yes, it's the same company as the makers of the baby food and the life insurance plan! Gerber childrenswear has a line of ultra-trendy, cute and incredibly cheap clothing for babies and toddlers. If you have a young child, it's definitely worth shopping from there. The items are high quality and there's a lot of thought that's been put into designs and styles. As an example, there are a ton of designs for you to choose from in their children's onesies.

The only downside is that their clothing is just for the younger set - sizes newborn to 5T, but if that's your child, then you're in luck.

6. French Toast

Although it’s a school uniform store, I occasionally shop at French Toast even though my children’s school has no uniform or dress code. I’ve found it’s a great place to shop for good quality low-priced basics such as polo-neck shirts and basic khaki-style pants. In particular, there are a lot of options in girls’ tops, offering detailing such as picot collar, ruched sleeves or waist tuck. This can be great if you’re seeking to pair the often-busy prints of current girls clothing with a solid one-color top in a cute girly style.

Spooky Savings: 15% off Sitewide at French Toast!

Although it doesn’t frequently offer the big discount sales of Children’s Place and Old Navy, you won’t need them with French Toast: you get consistently low prices year-round.
