Those with boys know all too well that they seem to have an in-built magnet that draws them towards mud and puddles. When choosing a winter coat it’s important that they’re made to withstand lots of outdoor play and regular washing, as well as being warm and cosy enough to see them through the season. Plenty of padding is a bonus, alongside waterproof fabrics and a stylish design. After all, you want the little fellas to look great too.
Luckily, Tu at Sainsbury’s has plenty of boys’ coats that will keep them snug while they’re out exploring. We mammas will love to dress them in their new autumn collection, featuring stylish puffas for older kids, all-in-one puddle suits to keep young chaps dry and a very versatile parka that can be worn three ways.
Three for the price of one
For that in-between weather when the sun is out one minute and gone the next, this 3-in-1 parka could be just the solution. With a removable fleece that zips to the inside of the coat, there are three options when it comes to temperature control and it’s a style that’ll see boys through from autumn to spring. What’s more, the khaki colour with orange detail and fur trim hood is sure to be a winning combination in our eyes.
Pep up their uniform with a puffa
Super warm, super bright and utterly practical, this blue puffa coat ticks all the boxes for style-conscious older boys. The zingy colour will set off any outfit and would certainly add interest to their boring grey or black school uniform. As well as being padded, the hood and shower resistant fabric mean that it’ll stand up to whatever weather is thrown at them.
All is quiet in the deep, dark wood…
Don’t be caught out when you’re out and about with the kids on a rainy day, just fold up this lightweight Gruffalo puddle suit and keep it in the boot of your car. It can be slipped on over their clothes so you don’t have to worry about your little man falling over or making a beeline for those puddles. Pop it in the machine when you get home and it’s ready to wear again in no time. And with an all-over Gruffalo print, they might just want to wear it indoors, too!
Looking ‘da bomb’ in this grey bomber jacket
If you want your little man to be on trend, a bomber jacket is a top choice. Sainsbury’s grey bomber jacket has a fleece lining and hood, providing an added layer of warmth as well as ensuring that your little man looks his best. Casual enough to pair with jeans and boots, it would also look really cute with a shirt and trousers to a party or special occasion.
