Everyone appreciates having warm clothing to wear in cool weather, especially if they love to be outdoors like a lot of kids do. Children's sweaters are perfect for wearing by themselves indoors or for layering under a coat if it’s really cold outside.
With great selections from Ralph Lauren, Tommy Hilfiger, Greendog and Calvin Klein, picking a new sweater is pretty easy as long as parents remember that kids clothing has to be comfortable and quick to put on. If not, they won’t wear it and it’ll stay in the closet until they grow out of it.
Choose kid friendly details like a loose collar that fits over the head easily—a half zipped style that loosens the collar opening is even better—and cuffs that don’t constrict. Itchy fabrics are also out, so take care to pick children's sweaters made from something soft and washable like acrylic or polyester. A lot of kids might prefer a cardigan that fully opens in the front rather than a pullover because most really hate to have tight fitting clothing pulled over their head and face.
For boys, an indoor sweater vest can be comfortable and warm and looks good with a shirt and dress pants for a special occasion. Though vests are usually pullovers, a V-neck or a round neck opening is loose enough to make them easy to put on. For outdoor wear, choose a heavier long sleeved sweater and add a hat and gloves for extra warmth if needed.
For girls, a cute striped sweater with decorative buttons or sequins can go with either pants or skirts for easy casual and dressy indoor wear, while a fur trimmed vest or a belted cardigan with a hood works great for outside.
Knitted warm weather gear like scarves, hats and gloves can cover all the parts not covered by a sweater and will make sure kids stay toasty warm wherever they play.
Keep everyone in the family comfortable in cool weather—indoors or out. Check out the selection of children's sweaters today at Macy’s.
