THE WEATHERPROOF PARKA
Your son will stand out in the playground in this bold weather-resistant jacket, which combines practicality with a bright and playful hue, says kidswear editor Maggie Davis
With our blustery autumns and chilly British winters, a good coat that will stand up to the elements is an essential investment, especially for outdoorsy kids. This zesty orange parka combines clever Stormwear technology (so it’s fully waterproof) with great style details. I love the detachable faux-fur trim on the hood for added cosiness, and the popper and riptape fastenings that make it easy for children to pull on and off. As with all our kids’ coats, it’s machine washable – even at 30 degrees – and can be tumble dried, too. Bring on the autumn adventures!
