You probably remember your own mother extolling the virtues of a good winter coat… She might even still insist you wrap up better! It goes without saying that when it comes to winter, a warm winter coat or jacket is the most important garment in your little one’s winter wardrobe.
While this is probably the most expensive item you’re going to have to buy, there are some good bargains out there – Polarn O. Pyret’s jackets are renowned for their quality, functionality and durability, and as such, their resell value if you went to resell on eBay is phenomenal- either that, or you can save if for your next child (many items in PO.P’s range are unisex – one of their many unique selling points). PO.P even does thermal outerwear as part of its newborn clothes range, which is really handy.
While a jacket with a hood is good, an additional hat is even better. Simple and quick to put on or take off, a hat is the ultimate temperature control garment – did you know that human beings omit 90% of their body heat through their heads? And what’s more, hats look pretty stylish too.
For girls, boots look cute and smart with dresses and skirts, too, or even over leggings or slim-cut jeans for an instantly more casual look.Boots with elasticated sides are great for boys who tend not to bother undoing their laces to put their shoes/boots on or take them off before they rush to their next fun exploit.
