One minute they’re hot, the next they’re cold: layered looks are always a good idea for kids. So why not have some fun with them? Choose pieces that work for now and will also take them well into winter…
Always start with thinner layers first. If it’s really cold – thermals and base layers. Then tees or jersey pieces followed by knitwear or jumpers and finally outerwear. I also love a sock with a sandal as autumn kicks in.
Make bold choices
Mismatched layers actually look very cool on kids. They can get away with bolder choices than adults! So, let them choose their own pieces (within reason) and clash prints and colours. It encourages their creativity, gives them independence and makes them happy.

Cotton jersey leggings, t-shirts and jumpers are easy and comfortable for running around in, climbing trees in and general fun! I love unisex pieces as they can be passed down and around siblings.

The latest Mini Rodini collection is made for having adventures. My children can’t get enough of the squirrel, walrus and reindeer prints. The accessories are perfect for play but practical too. We’re particularly taken with the rucksack.
