Seasonal changes in the weather should not stop young children from enjoying playtime fun outdoors. But winter adventures require appropriate clothing to keep the little ones cosy and warm. But don’t worry, because George at Asda has plenty of seasonal purchases that will easily transform your child’s wardrobe essentials into winter staples.
What’s in store for Girls?
A long sleeved knitted dress will be a hit with girls who love to wear dresses all year round. Choose lightweight woollen fabrics and a simple tunic style.
Practical, waterproof and extra warm, the perfect winter coat should also have a zip-up front, deep pockets and an ear-friendly hood. Additional features like padded quilting, a removable fleece lining, reflective fluorescent tape or detachable sleeves are a good idea.
A selection of colourful basic knit and textured woolly tights means that girls don’t have to wear trousers in order to keep their legs warm when playing outside. For extra cosiness add a pair of leg warmers.
A solid pair of brightly coloured wellies is essential for puddle jumping.
Unlike boys, girls love to wear hats. Choose a chunky woolly hat that provides good coverage. Pom-poms and other decorative embellishments are entirely optional.
Fleecy mittens that feature a removable top to expose the fingerless glove underneath are a great choice for outdoor fun and games.
What’s in store for Boys?
Long Sleeve Basic Tees
T-shirts are the wardrobe staple of boys. Update the look for winter by choosing a comfortable long sleeved version in a variety of colours.
Teach young boys how to correctly dress for winter by layering up a warm jumper over a comfy, long sleeved basic tee. Jumpers that have a high zip neck help him cool down without the need to remove the entire layer.
The ideal waterproof and padded winter coat for boys must have a loose fit cut that allows for freedom of movement, a detachable hood and plenty of pockets inside and out.
Not all boys will happily put on a coat to go out to play in the cold or rain. For fussy dressers a padded gilet makes an acceptable alternative. Layer up over a chunky fleece or super cosy textured jumper.
Insulated and waterproof boots with Velcro fastening or zippers are the best option for rain and snow. Rubber wellies with a quirky ‘character’ are the business.
A basic beanie is the ideal hat for super active boys. Ensure that the hat completely covers the ears.
Mittens and gloves made from water-resistant, padded material make a better option than traditional woollen gloves.
For more extreme weather conditions choose a unisex snowsuit. The padded all-in-one is easy to put on and usually features a zipper, Velcro fastening at the cuffs and ankles, and a hood to keep the head warm. Whilst originally designed for use in the snow, these super warm and cosy suits are also great for providing extra warmth on bitter cold and windy days.Make sure your kids are properly kitted out this winter with the range of comfortable and protective clothing from George.
