Winter is now upon us, which means it’s time to shop for new clothes. Put away your bathing suits, tank tops, short shorts, and more and buy some pieces that are a better fit for the colder climate. While this is easy for you, you have to be extra careful when buying for your little ones.
The way they handle the winter season can be far different to how you’re used to it. They can get cold easily if they’re not dressed with the right garments for the season.
And because of this, you’ll never hear the end of screaming, crying, and wanting to be warmer. So what should you buy for your kids to dress up in for winter? Here are a few of them:
First and foremost, a knitted sweater is a must to stay warm. At any age, a good sweater, finely-knitted with thick wool, can toast up one’s body without having to add a multitude of layers.
Sometimes, a nice thick sweater is enough to ensure you won’t freeze to death once you step outside. For your kids, a good sweater can still enable them to play freely and easily.
They’ll be warm and cozy but light enough to run around and even jump and hop. When it comes to kids’ fashion, practicality and comfort are just as important as style and aesthetics. And a sweater can be all those things and still keep them warm.
Beanie hats are fun, quirky, and colorful pieces that can easily be slipped on and off. They’re usually made with soft wool or thick-enough cashmere to keep your head toasty and cozy.
They’ve also become huge favorites among children, and for this winter, it’s best to buy your child one (or even more). As long as you find the right size for your kid, a beanie hat will keep him/her warm during this cold season.
You can even choose among a rainbow of colors that will best match your little one’s style and taste. They’re also light and tight, so if your kid will play outside, they won’t be burdened as much as wearing other hats.
As with their heads, your kids’ hands should also be kept warm. Getting frostbitten hands can be extremely painful, more so for children with sensitive and soft hands. To avoid such an awful injury, ensure that your kids are wearing gloves outside at all costs.
Wool gloves, in particular, can toast up their hands better than any other kind of handwear. They’ll also keep them clean as they move around outside amidst dirt and mud.
For some fashionable flair, there are some pairs that have quirky patterns, bright colors or even printed with cartoon characters on them. These ones will more likely excite your kids the most.
You may think that rubber boots are only for rainy days, but they’re perfect for snowy days as well. Kid puddle boots for winter is a surefire way to keep their feet toasty and cozy as they run around in the snow.
The rubbery matte texture will not only protect them from the cold snow, but it’ll be easier to wipe off any dirt that might go on them. And because snow is also wet, your kids will still go home warm and dry after a day of playing outside.
There’s no question that rubber boots are as great of a winter footwear for kids as ordinary boots are.
Cute Socks and Leg Warmers
Just because your kids are all covered up, doesn’t mean they won’t look nice. With each and every piece you buy them, they still have to be both practical and fashionable.
This applies mostly to socks and leg warmers. Both accessories warm up your kid’s feet and legs respectively but can also become fashionable pieces too. It’s all about choosing the right colors, prints, patterns, and style.
Although everyone wears socks and most wear leg warmers, the types your kids wear can say a lot about them and you as their parents. Add some personality and pizzazz by buying pairs that are easy on the eyes and warm on their little legs and feet.
Last but certainly not the least, scarves are cool accessories to warm your kids up with. There are a lot of kinds to choose from, such as the thick knitted ones in wool, or the more luxurious printed variety in silk. Scarves add a bit of mischief and mystery to any outfit, including for your own little ones.
They’re colorful, easy to put on, and will warm their necks as they run around and play during winter. Similarly to socks and leg warmers, you can get crazy and buy the quirkiest-looking and cutest scarves you can find to add more personality to your kids’ outfits.
Winter shopping for your kids can be a head-scratcher if you don’t know what to buy. Before purchasing anything, think about how the garment will keep your little one warm, cozy, but still free enough to play. Fashion can still be fun, especially for kids during the wintertime.
