Kids Coats and Jackets
Would you please put on your jacket? Thanks! From frustrated parents to concerned kindergarten teachers, it’s almost a daily plea. The challenge: finding kids’ coats or jackets that are stylish, yet comfortable enough they’ll agree to wear them without (too much) pushback.
From kids’ winter coats to spring jackets, Macy’s can help with that goal.
Kids’ Coats and Jackets for Toddlers
Most toddlers are fairly cooperative when it comes to outerwear. If it’s cozy and cute, they’ll wear it. When shopping for toddler girl coats, look for a metallic-print puffer with a fluffy faux-fur hood that’ll give her the stylish warmth she needs on a frigid day. If it’s water-resistant with a zip-out lining, you’re covered for three seasons, or you can pick a cute, printed raincoat for warmer, stormy days. A printed fleece is a perfect fall jacket she can wear as a spring jacket, too.
For toddler boys’ coats, a color blocked puffer from The North Face brings the rugged protection you love to kids’ winter jackets. You can start cultivating his sense of style with cozy kids’ winter coats from Polo Ralph Lauren or Tommy Hilfiger. A classic spring track jacket from adidas or Under Armour is a great transitional piece.
Big Kids’ Jackets and Coats
Ah, this is the age where challenges can set in, and you’ll find yourself pleading with them. Sometimes it’s because their developing fashion sense rejects the fall jackets they loved last week. Sometimes comfort is an issue. And, sometimes, it’s because they think coats are for babies.
Letting big kids take a bigger role in shopping can help overcome objections. So can scanning the playground and checking out what other kids are wearing. Pay closer attention to fit and comfort, too. You might adore your timeless trucker jacket, but to kids used to living in soft pants, denim can feel stiff and strange.
Today’s designers of girls’ jackets and coats are conscious of the need to make warmth stylish. Insulated jackets in brilliant colors achieve both goals. A reversible design lets her change things up as often as she likes. For warmer days, a vibrant track jacket or soft fleece half-zip will be enough.
Boys’ coats for big kids run the gamut from rugged camo prints to understated solid colors. If your kid is a resister, a soft tricot track jacket or cozy fleece hoodie can often convince him to add an extra layer and keep you both happy.
