Every mom has had it happen. It's the first cool day of fall so your child puts on an outfit that hasn't been worn since April. That's when you realize just how much she/he has grown this summer. His pants look like capris and her long-sleeve shirts don't cover her wrists. Oops!

But who has time to keep up with all the shopping - let alone the latest trends the kids will wear?

Read below for quick tips on preventing the #FallClothingOops. Plus, 4 chances to win a clothes subscription box giveaway from kidpik and a promo code for $10 off your first order!

Tip #1: Get creative

When clothes seem too small, they don't always have to go right into the donation pile. Add leggings under a dress that's too short and it becomes a cute, long shirt. Layer shorter shirts over longer ones to add a little color. Or save t-shirts that are just a little tight to wear under sweaters - it will make the knits less itchy without adding bulk.

Tip #2: Make clothes last longer

Are you guilty of throwing as many clothes as possible into the washing machine and then shoving it all in the dryer? Big mistake. Experts say that overloading the washing machine, especially with a mix of fabrics, makes them wear out easier. And the heat from the dryer can damage or shrink many materials - even if it's just a little bit, this shrinkage can be the difference between jeans fitting for one year versus two. Instead, hang your favorite clothes on the drying rack. Also, before washing, turn any graphic tees inside out to save them a little longer - unless your kids like that faded look, of course!

Tip #3: Have the clothes come to you

Skip shopping altogether by signing up for a clothes subscription box. It avoids stressful trips to the mall and keeps your child's wardrobe fresh all year long. The kidpik fashion box for girls is convenient and stylish. It has a fun style quiz to help figure out what type of fashion your daughter likes: Girly, Trendy, Classic, or Sporty. You pick the frequency of the mailing, there is no styling fee, and they deliver for free 2-3 outfits, including shoes, to your home. Voila! You can easily return anything your daughter does not like.

    I recycle my kids clothing with friends and family. Make sure it better quality for washing. And if involves any kind of ironing or dry cleaning..I stay away.

    #FallClothingOops I wash most of my clothes in cold water to keep them color-fast and I handwash anything delicate or if indicated on the tag (That's right folks, I read the tags!)

    I definitely prefer air drying our clothes. Avoids shrinkage and extra wear and tear!
