Brooklyn mom (and Parents magazine art director) Amanda Kirk designs these very cool two-toned sweater jackets for girls, while her Ozzie mum personally knits them from soft Australian wool. The length makes them great as Fall outerwear turned Winter layers, and I love details like giant buttons and a quirky little pin at the breast like a wooden bear or a bunch of grapes.
The red and yellow (shown, right) in particular is such a bright, happy change from all the drab neutral coats out there these days. Come to think of it, that statement has grandma written all over it, doesn’t it. –Liz
