Dressing Children In Winter

Dressing Children In Winter

It’s been a funny few months in terms of weather. We had the beautiful hot summer that most of us either loved or hated and then recently we have had the bright autumnal days consisting of kicking in the leaves. But recently, it has been colder and wetter and I don’t know about you but I have been finding it trickier to dress my little boy. With this in mind, I have done a little bit of research and will now share with you some tips for dressing children in winter months.



First and foremost, layering is the way forward in terms of winter dressing. This applies to everyone – not just when dressing children. Children are usually far more energetic than adults and can get warmer, much quicker. When it’s really cold, consider putting a vest under your favourite Boys Hugo Boss t-shirt. This way, your little man’s style doesn’t have to be compromised and he can still stay warm and super trendy! If it’s super cold, layer up with a cosy sweatshirt and this can easily be removed when indoors or when your little person warms up.



We seem to have had more snow in the UK in recent years. Kids love being out in the snow and even though we rarely get it, it’s best to be prepared so that your kids can go out in it and enjoy it whilst it lasts – after all, you never know when it’s likely to come again. These kinds of snowy memories need to be made while the opportunity is there. Snowsuits are a great idea and not only keep your children warm, but they will also keep them dry. Taking a snowsuit off after being out in the snow and being warm and dry underneath is so much better than peeling away wet layers and then struggling to get warm. They are worth the investment and if you buy a good quality waterproof one, they won’t take long to dry either.

A decent coat

With changing weather and temperatures here in the UK, it’s important to make sure your little one has a decent coat both for school and for play. Style doesn’t have to be compromised just because it’s colder. My little man is quite a trendy little boy (god help me when he’s older!) so he would be more than happy wearing something like a Boys Hugo Boss coat during the colder months. From puffer jackets to windbreakers, if it keeps your little one warm, it’s worth investing in a decent coat.


All about the Wellies!

A good pair of wellington boots are a must for children. Perfect for the aforementioned snowy days and rainy days alike! We all know children like to jump in muddy puddles (thank you Peppa!). There is nothing worse than your children’s best shoes getting dirty and spoiled in bad weather. Children’s feet grow quickly and the cost is enough without ruining a pair unnecessarily. In bad weather, opt for wellington boots and then you don’t need to worry whilst your kids enjoy themselves.

Children’s umbrellas

The UK is known for its unpredictable weather and no true Brit will ever leave the house without an umbrella. Kids love umbrellas and there are so many cute children’s ones out there. Let them pick their own and they are far more likely to use it!



With these wardrobe essentials, your small person need never be caught out again and can enjoy the weather in all seasons. After all, who says the colder and wetter days have to be spent indoors?


How do you make the most of all weathers? Are you prepared for snowy days? Do you find dressing children harder in the Winter months? Let me know in the comments.

    There are so many clever fabrics available today. I remember having chill-blains every Winter as a kid. You don’t really hear of them anymore. I used to put mine kids in thermal vests under their school uniforms – might have ben over kill but I felt better for it haha xx

    My daughter loves her umbrella. The slightest threat of rain and it goes out with us! She’s also currently loving her Cat hat which has a scarf attached to it to look like paws – super cute! #TriumphantTales

    My kids are adults but yet I am always reminding them to dress in layers and wear gloves during the winter. Thanks for the tips. #Triumphanttales

    We are in the Summer season here in the Southern Hemisphere so our Winter clothing are packed away. But gloves, caps, thick socks, boots and windbreakers are essentials for winter #TriumphantTales

    There’s no such thing as bad weather, only bad clothing 🙂 It’s really important to always get the little ones out and about so proper seasonal clothing is essential #TriumphantTales.

    I loved it when my boys wore snow suits, kept them warm and easy to remove leaving them clean and dry underneath with just a change of socks required, when they got older it was layers for sure, as they’d get hot running around even in the snow and if they took their coat off they’d get cold too quickly #triumphanttales

    Hi, layers are key. Why do children always look better in winter outfits. Oh and umbrellas are a must whatever your age #triumphantales
