Practical winter clothing that your kids will want to wear
Like with food, kids can be picky about their clothing. One thing is for sure; they don’t like too many layers and to feel claustrophobic when bundled up too much. Keeping this in mind, I’ve picked out some clothes that are practical yet warm and fun enough to keep them excited.
Kids love vibrant colors and girls especially go all out in pink and purple. Raincoats are a fun way to keep dry and warm this season. They’re available in lovely designs for both boys and girls, are water-proof with hand-warmer pockets and front snap closure with zip and hood. Made with polyurethane outers and lined with cotton inside, they’re comfortable and protective while playing out in the damp cold.
Fleece jackets are both stylish and keep kids warm. Tweens with their definite ideas of fashion love imitating their mom’s clothes. The hooded models or parkas are cozy and children have the alternative of letting down the hood if it gets too warm. They can wear them with leggings, or long sleeved tops. Frock coats and fingerless gloves and the all-time favorite sweatshirts in vibrant colors are other alternatives for young girls to keep warm while remaining trendy.
Fleece lined jackets with durable nylon panels in the shoulders and multiple zip pockets will appeal to boys of all ages. Jackets from North Face are soft and thin but very warm even for freezing temperatures. They have a roomy fit and are wind and water-proof with fleece lining. They’re great for all outdoor activities and even wick away sweat if it gets too warm. A drawcord at the hem stops cold wind from entering into the jacket.
Go for clothes that are lightweight and but have a thick fleece lining on the inside to keep kids warm. Look for quality clothing that is durable and good a good value.
