Kids grow fast
One day they’re babies rolling around in cute little onesies, and before we know it, they're dressing themselves for school. Outgrowing clothes is a given. Onesies, shirts, pants, whole outfits, many of these are worn for just one single season. Then it's time to throw them out and buy new ones... Right?
What if, instead of being outgrown, children's clothes could grow with them?
Designing for long-term use is one of our core values at MARLMARL. We want our products to be there for life's milestones and to be part of your family's story.
With adjustable sleeves, hems, and accessories, our clothes are made to be worn for years - not months. This design philosophy not saves our customers money (and time), but it's also friendly to our planet.
In this article, we'll talk about why long-lasting clothes are great and introduce you to some of our best (longest) selling items to grow with your little one!
Why Choose Long-Lasting Clothes
Make shopping for children's clothing an investment in quality rather than a seasonal bargain hunt.
When we choose clothes that last longer, we spend less in the long run. Less frequent shopping also means fewer resources used. It’s a small step toward a more sustainable lifestyle and it feels good knowing we're reducing waste and helping our environment.
Plus, there’s something special about handing them down and seeing younger family members wear clothes that hold special memories. These family keepsakes can become treasured mementos, enjoyed by siblings or even the next generation.
Clothes That Last and Last
Many Years* & Many Seasons:
- 1 to 3 years old
- 3 to 6 years old
- Fall to Spring
- Spring to Fall
From adjustable lengths, to removable linings, to transforming designs, these items are meant to be used to the fullest before it's time to hand them down or say goodbye.
Wear it as a toddler's full-length dress, then remove the shoulder straps and it transforms into a tulle skirt than can be worn up to 6 years old*! One of our all-time best-sellers, perfect as a baby shower gift!
The elastic back waistband and adjustable shoulder straps allow for both the baby’s and kid’s sizes to be worn for 2 to 3 summers. It can be worn as a one-piece dress when the child is small and as a tunic when the child grows taller.
Our popular jacket that grows with the child. Adjust the sleeves by rolling them up or down. Comes with removable hood and inner lining to adapt to the changing seasons.
With the included suspenders, adjustable hem length, and stretchy fabric, these slacks journey with the child from crawling to taking their first steps. Stylish and swanky, these are equally suited for everyday use and special occasions.
Making Clothes Last Even Longer
Picking the Right Stuff: Just like how some toys last longer because they're made better, some clothes are like that too. Knowing which materials, like cotton or denim, stay strong helps in choosing clothes that last.
Washing with Care: We all know how much kids love to play, and sometimes that means clothes get really dirty. But with the right way of washing, like turning clothes inside out or using cold water, those clothes can look fresh and bright for a longer time.
Storing Smart: When we put away clothes that are not in use, like winter jackets in the summer, it's good to keep them in a cool, dry place. This way, they're just like new when it's time to wear them again. By giving our clothes a little extra care, we can ensure they're ready for all the memories yet to come. And who knows? Maybe they'll even be ready for the next little adventurer in the family.
Choosing for Today and Tomorrow
The choices we make today can have lasting effects. By picking clothes that keep up with the child's growth, we're not just making a smart choice for our wallets and our kids' style. We're also thinking about the future.
These long-lasting clothes are sure to become favorites that kids will remember when they grow up. It's our hope that they become treasures lovingly handed down to younger siblings, cousins, or even the next generation. Plus, it feels good to know we're doing a little part in caring for our planet.
As parents, we always want what’s best for our kids. Making thoughtful choices in their fashion is just another way of showing our love and care. Let's choose clothes that become part of the journey, growing and changing just like our kids do.
