Coats and Gloves for Kids: Staying Warm on the Playground

in TASTEMAKERS

By Jessica D Festa

Just because the warm air has turned chilly doesn’t mean your children’s style needs to suffer. In fact, there are a number of designers creating fashion-forward items like coats, hats, and gloves for kids.

Snoods
You want your kid to stay warm, and they want to be the most stylish one in class. A snood—a special type of scarf that can be worn as a scarf or over the head like a hood—is a great compromise. The best kinds feature characters from your children’s favorite cartoons. The plush faux-fur snood comes with mittens built into the attached scarf, so you can be sure your kids’ head and hands will stay warm even after an epic snowball fight.

Color Block Beanies
Keep that brain toasty and cooking for the schoolbooks while looking chic with a color block beanie. The knit accessory features a bold ribbed brim that makes a statement while also being functional. Get a few of these in an array of colors and patterns to make a worn-already outfit look new.

Glittens
What’s better than a modish hat or gloves for kids? A modish hat and gloves. Actually, make that glittens. Wearing the two items as a set is practical, though it has a whimsical feel. If you get them in neutral tones, they can be paired with just about anything, and work whether your child is going to play in the snow or attend school. And access to their smartphones won’t be compromised in these gloves. (For kids, that’s a pretty big deal!)

Camo Jackets
Camo allows boys to show off their more masculine side, and girls to have an edge that can be kept feminine with a few pretty accessories (luckily green and brown go great with pink!). These jackets have a mossy oak print that gives a textured, 3D look. Be sure to find one with good insulation, so that your kids can stay warm while they’re looking cool.

Buy your child UGG's McLain Ribbed-Knit Beanie & Flip Mittens from Neiman Marcus so they stay warm and stylish during winter.
