Mini’s Patagonia fleece and Mayoral toggle coat (mini’s is cherry red) have fared well thus far, but as the temperatures drop further, I’ve been on the hunt for additional back-up in the outerwear category. Below, a few of my top picks:
Puffers and Down Coats for Toddlers.
+Love the scalloping on this Jacadi style. Puffers have such an intrinsically sporty vibe, and this softens the look. Plus, it has fur lining and a hood! (I have a feeling there will be a lot of battles over hats this winter.)
+Into this velvet puffer! I wish it came in navy, but pink will do.
+Adore this star-print style, but I’d remove the faux fur trim. Sometimes the faux fur elements can look so cheap; without it, this looks like it might be a Stella McCartney for kids piece.
+How fun is this fur-trim puffer?!
+Beige may seem like an odd outerwear color choice for a child, but I love the sophisticated almond color of this Polarn O. Pyret piece. (This reversible style also caught my eye.) The quality of their pieces is insane — I’ve bought many, many layering items for mini from here and they are insanely well-made. I have my eye on one of their snowsuits, too; they get rave reviews and last forever, apparently. (Word to the wise: sometimes you can find bizarrely heavily discounted styles from this brand on Amazon — I found one of their coveted snowsuits for $65 here!!!)
+Speaking of snowsuits — how precious is this printed coverall?!
Wool Coats Toddlers.
+I love mini’s Mayoral wool toggle coat (mentioned above) — it’s got the classic styling but not overly expensive. Gap has a really good version out this season, lined in the cutest buffalo check.
+This toggle coat with the fur pockets is AMAZING. I would wear it in my size.
+Little Goodall has some seriously darling coats — they make a big statement and aren’t for everyone, but how incredible is this?!
+Adore the bows on this style.
Other Statement Coats + Accessories.
+This sherpa-lined plaid coat is precious.
+A fur muff! I always wanted one when I was little so I could be like my Samantha doll.
+This was mini’s coat last year and oh my was it precious.
P.S. I do not need another oatmeal-colored fleece (right?), but I love the navy cuffs on this style.
P.P.S. More fall finds for minis.
P.P.P.S. Ugh, my heart.
