BEST WINTER COATS FOR KIDS


With summer drawing to a close and winter on the way, now’s the perfect time to find your kids' next winter coat. Luckily, from classic padded jackets and parkas to lightweight rain jackets and cool bomber styles, you’ll find plenty of coats and jackets in our unisex coat guide that they’ll love to wear - right in time for their return to school.



WHAT TO LOOK FOR IN A KID’S WINTER COAT


The first and most important thing to consider when buying your kids' next winter coat is which styles are going to suit your family’s lifestyle best. Whether a girl's coat, a boy's coat, or a unisex style, warmth and fit should be top of your must-have list.

If you love to venture outside together no matter how cold and wet it is, then thick, padded, waterproof coats and jackets are a great way to go. With that in mind, keep things warm and cosy with fur-trimmed bomber jackets and parkas. They’re perfect for school, they work for weekends too, and they also come in countless colours and styles that your kids will love.

Styling tip - you can always rely on Moose Knuckles and Canada Goose for these.

LIGHTWEIGHT RAIN JACKETS


Meanwhile, if your kids prefer to layer up in sweaters rather than big puffy coats, lightweight rain jackets are an ideal early winter option. Throw them on over a jumper so they’re warm and shielded from the rain but still feel free to run around and play.

TRENDING WINTER COATS YOUR KIDS (AND YOU) WILL LOVE


If your little one happens to be the trendsetter of the family, there are plenty of boys' winter jackets and girls' designer coats they’ll want to be seen in this coming winter. A fur-trimmed parka by Canada Goose is the ultimate boys' designer coat guaranteed to keep them toasty whether on their way to school or heading out for some winter family fun on the weekends.

COOL PADDED JACKETS


Meanwhile, cool padded jackets by Moncler are perfect for styling with their jeans and boots for a warm and trendy winter weekend outfit. They come in countless colours, lengths, and styles, with or without hoods so you can choose the one that works best with the rest of their winter wardrobe.

HOW TO CHOOSE A WINTER COAT FOR YOUR TODDLER


Since their bobble hats and mittens will most likely end up on the floor, choosing a coat that keeps your little one warm, dry, and comfortable is essential. In terms of size, if it’s not so big it restricts them from comfortably moving around, going one size bigger is always a good idea. This way they have growing room and can wear their new winter coat at least a couple of years in a row.


Also, whether you’re shopping for a girls' winter coat, a boys' winter jacket, or even gilet-style layers, choose those that come with a hood. They’ll keep your little ones dry if it rains, and they also add an extra layer of warmth. Perfect for the start of the new year when it’s chilly outside.



HOW TO LAYER YOUR KIDS WINTER JACKET


Before you know it, those winter temperatures will start creeping in. With that in mind, it’s always a good idea to plan for layering when you buy your kids' winter jacket. If they tend to get chilly easily, choose a thicker coat or jacket, but one that accommodates snuggly jumpers and cardigans underneath.


If they’re always on the go and prefer something lightweight, pick out a thinner, waterproof style they can throw on over hooded jumpers or multiple long-sleeved tops to keep the heat in.
