8 Best Fashion Trends for Kids this Winter
As the summer fun fades away and winter starts to roll in, creating trendy outfits that will keep your children warm is essential.
You need to prepare for messy days in the rain, fun days in the snow and everything in between. However, creating fashionable winter outfits is a skill, and we’re here to help you hone it.
Read on for 8 kids' winter fashion trends that are easy and affordable to create. At Village Kids, we have a range of kids' designer clothing at discounted prices so you can enjoy luxury brands without putting a dent in your wallet.
1. Layered Look
In winter, layers are a must.
This is all about combining various clothing items in an organised and cohesive way. This trend typically starts with a base layer, such as a long-sleeved t-shirt or a thin turtleneck, followed by additional layers, such as a warm jumper, cardigan or flannel shirt.
To finish off the look, you can pair it with a bubble coat or a thin jacket, adding accessories like scarves, hats, and gloves. Not only will this keep your child cosy, but they will remain one of the most fashionable kids on the street.
2. Bright and Bold Colours
Who said winter was all about neutrals?
When it comes to dressing your children, you want to keep it fun and let their personality shine through. You could create a monochrome outfit with your child’s favourite colour or add a mix of bright blues, greens, and reds.
You could start with one brightly coloured piece, like a jacket or scarf, and keep the rest of the outfit more neutral. On the other hand, you could pair bright colours with simple patterns like polka dots or stripes to add dimension to the outfit.
3. Funky Prints and Patterns
This is all about bringing fun and creativity into your child's wardrobe.
Plain outfits can be reserved for their teen years; childhood is all about expression. For this, you could dress your child in their favourite cartoon character clothing or fun animal embellishments.
For patterns, think of bold polka dots, whimsical floral designs, and even digital or geometric patterns. You could mix a range of funky pieces or pair a fun printed piece with solid-coloured clothing.
4. Classic Knitwear
Knitted jumpers, scarves, and beanies are timeless trends that will never go out of style.
These pieces are key to a perfect winter outfit, keeping your child warm whilst looking smart and cosy. Use knitwear as a cosy middle layer over a shirt or under a winter coat.
Whether your child is going to school or a family event, this adds warmth as well as a touch of sophistication to their outfit. If the knitwear is brightly coloured or heavily patterned, balance it with neutral trousers, skirts, or leggings.
5. Functional Outerwear
This includes waterproof jackets, wind-resistant parkas, and snowsuits.
Functionality is the most important aspect of a winter outfit. No matter how good the outfit looks, it needs to be practical, allowing your child to move freely and ensuring their warmth above all.
For cold days out in the snow, snowsuits, boots, and wellies are a must. Waterproof puffer coats encourage outdoor play whilst keeping your child dry and protected from the harsh UK weather.
Ensure the outerwear can accommodate multiple layers underneath without being too bulky or restrictive.
6. Statement Boots
From sturdy, waterproof snow boots to stylish ankle boots, this trend caters to a variety of needs and preferences.
Statement boots offer a blend of practicality and style, protecting your child's feet from muddy puddles whilst complimenting any winter outfit.
These can be paired with jeans, skirts, and tights for a smart look or dressed down with leggings and sweatpants for a casual appearance.
7. Athleisure Comfort
This trend combines the practicality of athleisure wear with the ease and style of leisure clothing.
From leggings and jumpers to fleece jackets and sweatpants, this is the ideal outfit for relaxed days. Made from durable and stretchy materials, many people opt for athleisure clothing for daily tasks, fun days out and playdates.
For a fashionable winter fit, combine a pair of joggers with a stylish sweater or a relaxed hoodie with jeans.
8. Vintage Revival
Vintage is back in style, and we couldn’t love it any more.
From corduroy pants to pinafore dresses and ruffled blouses, this is the perfect way to remain stylish whilst dressing your child appropriately for the winter weather.
Choose vintage pieces in timeless colours or patterns that can be easily paired with existing wardrobe items. This could include adding a denim jacket over a basic legging outfit or pairing flared pants with a staple t-shirt.
You can get as creative with this trend as you want.
