As a resident of the Deep South, my kids tend to not need a heavy duty coat until mid-winter, which means we’re generally relegated to the plain old sweaters, hoodies, and fleece jackets. But with this year’s trend of jersey knit jackets, we’ve got a bunch of fantastic options that are perfect for us mild weather folks, or those of you just looking for a nice change from itchy wool and sometimes stuffy fleece.
The adorable french terry pea coat from Tiny Pants Kids (above) is absolutely superb, with adorable styling and beautiful bold colors–love the orange! And with girls that are insistent on wearing dresses and tights, the length is fantastic as well.
Another must have piece is this wide collar coat at Baby Eggi. It’s slightly reminiscent of a bolero jacket, and both neutral shades of eggplant and gray make it super versatile.You can’t beat the big chunky, plastic crystal buttons for a subtle touch of bling.
For something slightly more urban, the black moto jacket at Old Navy was a huge hit with our readers when we featured it recently. It pairs well over skinny jeans and sneaks, or with a skirt, chunky knit tights and some fun boots. At $21.50, it’s practically a steal.
The best part, aside from their collective cuteness, is that these jersey jacket styles are all easily washable. Hallelujah for no dry cleaning. -Kristen
