Tips on Choosing the Right Childrenswear Based on Seasons

Whatever the time of year and the weather, young children love to play outside. There is so much for them to do and learn if you take them out to explore. It doesn’t matter if it’s the beach, the park, the mountains, or just your front or back yard – with a bit of help and supervision, they can have so much fun. But you will, of course, need to make sure they are dressed appropriately. Here are our tips on choosing the right childrenswear based on the seasons.

Choose Clothes that Are Great for Exploring

For the cooler seasons, a classic overall style is perfect for all types of indoor and outdoor play. If your little one is wearing a nappy, overalls help to keep them comfortable. You can layer overalls with t-shirts, jumpers, fleeces, hoodies, or coats, depending on the weather.

Choose from Sammy Cord Overalls in cream or Rust Tipper Overalls in navy or cypress. Our Tipper Overalls are made from organic cotton corduroy, which means they feel super soft to the touch but are hardwearing enough to withstand all your toddler’s activities. We have sizes up to four or five years, and our overalls look great with wellington boots, a sun hat, a denim jacket, or just about anything else.

Look for Fabrics that Are Easy to Wash

Kids get messy; that’s a fact of life. Our best advice is to go for fabrics you can pop in the washing machine time and time again. Our Billy Jumper is designed to be what we call extremely easy care. Made from certified organic cotton, our Billy Jumper has been pre-washed, so you don’t need to worry about it shrinking the first time you wash it.

As well as being easy to wash, our Billy Jumper comes in a neutral oatmeal or rust colour, which means it will go with anything. Versatile enough to wear anywhere, anytime, it’s perfect for all seasons. And with a cute ribbed neck, cuffs, and hem, your little one will look simply gorgeous in this jumper.

Choose Adaptability for Value for Money

The Stevie Vintage Parka is a blend of modern with a touch of vintage. The two-tone colours are subtle and fresh with orange trim, orange tartan hood lining, and a badge on the shoulder. Available in sizes from six months to six years, your baby, toddler, or child will love the cosy brushed cotton lining, and the coat zips right up to their chin to keep their chest and neck warm. It even has pockets to keep their little hands warm and stow away their gloves, and cuffs and elasticated hems for comfort when they’re playing.

But there’s more. The magic of the Stevie Vintage Parka is in this coat’s versatility. You can tuck the coat’s hood away inside the coat’s collar to keep it out of the way when it’s not needed. And it has zip-off sleeves, so the parka becomes a gilet. It looks great over a sweater or even a t-shirt when the weather is warmer. Also available in Lemon Blush.
