Wind and rain shouldn't stop playtime, and the best winter childrenswear lets them enjoy that crisp fresh air. Colder weather is on its way, so they need to be well wrapped up, especially if they're toddlers. Children's puffer coats are a perfect way for little explorers to stay cosy and dry.
A cold-weather coat can be stylish as well as practical. And choosing one that reflects your child's personality is better still. Here are some of our favourites. We hope you'll love them too!
Protect children from the cold
When playing outside, kids need to bundle up against the elements. Insulated or padded jackets help to maintain body heat. And if, like this BOSS jacket, it's water-repellent, even better. Filled with down and containing goose and duck feathers, it's both lightweight and toasty. Kids will love the quilted effect, too.
Winter jackets should give optimum protection without overheating. From skiing to splashing in puddles, they need to have room for layering, and if they're sensitive to feathers, choose a synthetic filling. Features such as a drawstring waist and deep pockets also offer added protection.
The puffer coat – this winter's must-have
A puffer is a winter wardrobe essential, and in various sizes and styles, there's something to suit everyone. To help get you started, check out these examples designed to keep any young explorer snug as a bug.
A clever dual-material puffer
A girl's puffer coat can make a real statement. This black BOSS dual-material puffer, with its unique mix of fabrics, does just that! The top is made of warm fleece, while the bottom comes in water-resistant polyester. The side pockets, front-zip fastening, and BOSS logo on the sleeve complete the look.
Reversible for two looks
This DKNY reversible jacket stands out thanks to its design. White on one side and black on the other, it offers two styles in one coat. It features a DKNY label on the chest and hood, and with raglan pockets on one side and zipped ones on the other, hands and personal items stay protected.
Hooded and water-repellent
The folks at Aigle know everything about waterproof clothing. Looking for a boys' puffer coat? This navy Aigle hooded water-repellent jacket fits the bill. Comfortable and protective, it's perfect for winter weather, and a hood fastened with press studs provides a better fit. The collar and pockets are lined with polar fleece, and the sleeves, adorned with the brand's label, are elasticated at the wrists. Similarly, if you're after a children's long puffer coat, this girl's gradient-coloured Aigle jacket comes in a longer length. A polar fleece-lined hood with zippers converts into a large collar for extra comfort.
The sleeveless puffer
On milder days, kids want to keep their arms free, but their bodies warm. This KARL LAGERFELD KIDS sleeveless puffer provides that versatility. In vibrant green and black, it's reversible, hooded, water-repellent, and lightly padded. Logos printed on the bias binding and back add that extra bit of fashion flair.
Now that we've whet your appetite, we hope you have fun finding the perfect puffer coat for the junior adventurers in your life. With so many functional and fashionable options to choose from, they'll be winter wonderland-ready in no time!
