It’s time to layer up again! With Autumn most definitely here, I’ve pulled together an edit of the chicest cover-ups for children this season. I am always happy to spend more on a coat than any other item in the girls’ wardrobes, as it’s something they will be wearing day in, day out for the better part of six months. I tend to lean towards more traditional styles (my dream coat for the girls is Caramel’s signature Pherousa coat in green), but now Violet is a little older I am starting to invest in more modern silhouettes – last year I snapped up a dusky pink cocoon coat on sale from Jigsaw which she will be wearing this season. I also recently succumbed to practicality and bought her a hooded waterproof parka from Uniqlo for school. (On a side note – shopping the sales a season ahead is the smartest way to buy a beautiful coat without spending a fortune. Just size up and store it away until the following winter.)
From parkas to trenches to super snuggly faux fur styles, hopefully this list will help you find the perfect mini cover-up. Because if you are going to be asking your children to ‘please put your coat on!’ a thousand times every time you go out (insert eye roll here), it might as well be a style you love!
