With half-term finally here, it’s time to head into the great outdoors. Dreading that getting-ready-to-go-out moment? To make things a little easier, we’ve handpicked the best kids’ coats they’ll actually want to put on. Versatile? Check. Practical? Check. Stylish? Check.
Hiking, biking, climbing, trailblazing; when out and about kids need a coat that’ll keep up. Look out for waterproof fabrics, intelligent constructions and reflective strips. And for the most serious of weather-bound pursuits, pair with waterproof trousers and hiking boots. Outerwear just got technical.
The party mood
Parties in winter demand that extra bit of consideration, for starters, what should you layer over shirts and dresses? Fortunately we’ve got a host of gorgeous coats, slick blazers and uber-cool jackets to make their party entrance spectacular. Plus, they can easily be dressed down for weekends or school nights. Dual-purpose? We think so.
You buy the uniform and think you’re sorted, but then remember that thin blazer isn’t going to cut it come wintertime. So, we’ve done the hard work for you and picked four coats that’ll match a uniform and keep little ones cosy in the playground.
Out of the park
Weekends and holidays require practical coats you won’t mind if they get dirty. Trips to the park, meeting their friends, weekend activities… think versatile, casual outerwear. Gilets are ideal transitioning pieces, and perfect layered over knitwear, while a quilted jacket gives a classic look. Let the weekend begin.
