Have you purchased your Winter coats yet? I live in the cold weather state of Minnesota so our cold weather gear is our biggest investment each year as our Winter coats come out in October and sadly we do not put them away until sometimes April. Since our coats will get so much wear it is important to me to buy coats that will last the whole season and also have the quality and classic styling so I can hand them down to my other children. Since our coats are something we wear everyday, it’s also something I will spend a little more money on to make sure it is warm and holds up through the whole season.
Typically I buy each child two Winter coats – one for school and play and one dress coat. My kids spend a lot of time outside in the wintertime so I want a coat that is super warm. Typically we will choose a down-filled puffer coat for school and play. There are so many great choices now that run the spectrum of prices.
For a nicer or dress coat we typically buy a coat that is wool or a wool-blend for warmth and it will last and wear a long time. I have a Mini Boden dress-wool coat that I bought six years ago for my oldest daughter that is now being worn by my youngest daughter and it still looks next to new.
I’ve search the internet for a casual-everyday Winter coat and a dress coat for both boys and girl at every price range. I shopped a Mall store(like Gap or Old Navy), a sporting good store(like Columbia),and a department store(like Macy’s and Nordstrom’s). Other great places to look for coats that we’ve owned and loved are Hanna Andersson, L.L. Bean, Land’s End, and Mini Boden.
