Winter is here, and it’s biting cold out there!
Did you know the tolerance level towards winter is vastly different for adults and the kids? So, to help them combat the chilly, cold weather, as a parent, you need to make sure that they are suitably and properly clothed. The kids winter wear essentials wardrobe must be well-stocked and maintained so that they are warm and comfortable all day & night and do not catch winter cold.
Before we share the list of some must-have combo winter outfits for kids, here are the three most important tips you must be considering:
Always go for layering. Layering helps in better insulation than just wrapping your little one in one very warm jacket/coat. Opting to go for layered winter essentials also gives you the flexibility to take-off one layer when it gets warmer enabling greater comfort for your kid.
As the tolerance level of kids and adults are different, always dress your toddler and/or young one in one extra layer of clothing than what you are wearing under the same weather conditions.
Winter accessories are a must to ensure that the little ones are completely comfortable. For example, a warm cap, mittens/gloves, boots, warm stockings, etc. are essentials for winter wardrobe of your kids.
Now that you have the basics sorted, let’s discuss the four winter essentials combos for your kids:
1. Team daytime winter essentials with quilted jackets
During the daytime, when the sun is out, you can opt for cotton quilted jackets that give enough warmth while keeping your kids comfortable. If it is not too cold then you may also choose sleeveless quilted jackets.

3. Give your wardrobe a cardigan top-up!
While quilted jackets are perfect for sunny winter days, on days of extreme cold, you must layer up your kids to keep them cozy. Apart from a turtleneck sweater underneath the tops, you can team it up with open printed cardigans, or a poncho too.
There are many kids whose skin is sensitive to woolen clothing and they may have allergic reactions like itching or rashes due to woolens. It is advisable to have a cotton top as the first layer on the skin so that the woolen cardigan, jacket, or any other clothing doesn’t come in direct contact with their skin.
4. Coat-up your festive wear for winters
