THE PERFECT PARKA

How to ensure they look cool but stay warm this winter? This multitasking parka ticks all the boxes

Awinter coat is the single most important piece of clothing you’ll buy for them this year, so it needs to cover every eventuality. Not only does it have to be durable enough to be worn on a daily basis in all weathers, but it also needs to be versatile enough to go over a uniform or jeans, and it has to be stylish. Not much of an ask, then. Invented for Arctic conditions, a multitasking parka is a great option. This mustard version has a fleece lining and clever technology that repels water so he’ll stay dry no matter how wet the walk home. With a faux-fur hood and hidden zip, it also has style kudos, which, as any parent knows, is what kids really care about.
