Keep children warm and snug during the coldest months with our thermal base layers, whether they’re exploring the great outdoors or simply bundling up for the school playground
Layer up to shelter little ones from the cold
A cold child equals a miserable child – that’s a fact. As soon as kids feel a nip in the air, their smiles disappear, no matter how much fun their outdoor activity is. The good news? There’s a simple solution to keeping little ones warm: layers, layers and more layers. Start with one of our thermal kids’ vests, which are insulating but breathable. Add a long-sleeved T-shirt and a thick knitted jumper. Layer a padded gilet under their winter coat if they’re going to be outside for a long time and slip long johns under their jeans. Finish with warm thermal accessories, like our super cosy tights and socks, and they’ll be snug as a bug. Our thermals come in a range of warmth levels – use the handy thermometer symbols to decide which level your child needs.
Wrap them up warm in a padded coat
Picking the right winter coat is crucial when it comes to beating the cold. A padded coat is a perfect option for chilly little ones: practical, warm and super soft. Look for a coat that has a longline shape to protect more of their bodies from icy temperatures with a cosy lining for added warmth. A fixed hood, Stormwear technology to keep them dry come rain or snow and roomy pockets with plenty of space for all their bits and bobs are also must-have features.
Don’t forget the finishing touches
Little ears get cold quickly, so finish off their outfits with a playful pom-pom hat. This knitted hat comes in an array of different colours, from vibrant hot pink to purple, so there’s sure to be a shade they’ll wear. If the forecast is snowy, choose this cosy knitted hood. They’ll probably lose at least one pair of gloves this winter – try our three pack of kids’ gloves, which stretch to accommodate growing fingers. Mini movie fans will love our Harry Potter and Spiderman hat, scarf and mitten sets, which also make great festive gifts.
