Back To School With Debenhams

Now we are in the summer holidays I have been thinking about school uniforms, with 4 to buy for it can get quite costly. It's a necessary purchase and the quality is more important than the price, if a uniform is going to last then I don't mind paying a bit extra. I have been given the opportunity to kit one of the kids out in a uniform from Debenhams and put them to the test. I went with Miss S as our reviewer as she puts her clothes to the ultimate test! I got her kitted out with 2 skirts, 2 polos shirts, 2 shirts, 2 cardigans and a pair of Skechers shoes all ready for September.
I will start with the Skechers shoes, she is really heavy on her feet and goes through lots of shoes, so I normally buy her standard supermarket shoes for around £10. These Skechers Velocity Pouty shoes look much more hard wearing. They cost £25 and look like they will withstand a lot more use than the cheaper ones I normally get for her. They are leather and have a super soft lining and cushioned insole, the soles have flexible rubber traction and they fasten with a simple but secure velcro tab.
Skye has a royal blue cardigan for school and I sometimes have trouble getting one in her size if I leave it too late. This one is pure cotton and is so soft, it's a lovely bright blue and perfect for layering in the summer and winter. It's got double hemming on the cuffs and waistband so there will be no fraying on the edges. They are available from ages 4-5 right the way up to ages 15-16, such a great availability of sizes and prices start from £5.60 dependant on the size you're looking for.
I love these classically designed kilts, they come in a pack of 2 so they will last her throughout the year. The material feels really good quality and the elasticated waistband means they will be comfortable for Miss S to wear. They are made with durable easy iron stain repellant fabric, which is perfect for our tom boy who attracts dirt! The skirts have permanent pleats, so I don't have the hassle of ironing them in every time. The kilts are available from age 3 right the way up to age 16, with prices starting from £8.
The 2 pack of fitted blouses are an essential uniform must have to go along with the pretty kilts. They have a lovely shape and slightly puffed sleeves. They are 100% machine and dryer safe and the fact they are a 2 pack means you have one to wear and one to wash. The retail from £8.80 and are available from age 3 up to age 16.
I also selected a 2 pack of polo shirts as an alternative to wearing a collared shirt all the time, her school allows either and she does like an option. They are 100% cotton, so super soft and machine washable and tumble dryer safe, so ideal for a busy Mum. The girl's design has a pretty scalloped collar and 2 button fastening.
I am really impressed with our new Debenhams school uniform, you can really see and feel the quality. The prices surprised me as I thought the cost would be a lot more than the cheaper supermarket uniforms, but the price is only a few pounds more. I don't mind paying extra when it's going to last. I am also pleased with the fit on the uniforms, they are true to size and fit Miss S perfectly. The full range of uniforms is available now in the Back To School Section on the Debenhams website.
