The rough and tumble of playing in the fallen autumn leaves means that sometimes an emergency outfit change is needed. A hole in a pair of thick woollen tights, a muddy puddle splash and it’s time for a quick swap. That’s why we love layers. Perfect for keeping cosy in chilly winter weather, mix-and-match tees and sweaters are our wardrobe heroes.
Building a basic capsule wardrobe filled with interchangeable pieces makes winter dressing that little bit easier. For girls, look out for staple sweaters that can be layered over dresses or worn with trousers and skirts. Jumper dresses can be teamed with boots for day or ballet pumps for parties and family lunches. And don’t forget to choose a coat that will go with everything.
For boys, we love an easy-to-style colour palette of navy and red. Add pops of bold brights with fun tees, stand-out trainers and cosy accessories. A couple of pairs of hard-wearing trousers will see him through the season and look out for a good pair of trainers for play dates and a pair of desert boots for smarter wear.
One of our favourite trends for AW14, we’ve put together our ultimate capsule wardrobes for boys and girls based on mini-me dressing. Think shrunken-down pea coats, suede boots (just like dad’s) and mini ballet pumps to match mum’s. Scroll down to see the edits, or click on the button to shop our new arrivals.
