The perfect parka

3 October 2018

Brrr! Its getting cold out there. Kidswear editor Maggie Davis on why a parka is a great option for your child this winter

Winter’s not all doom and gloom. Bonfire night, cosy evenings in front of the TV and the build-up to Christmas make it all bearable. Plus, the snug winter outfits. The switch from summer to winter clothes is usually quite sudden and Ive just packed my children’s summer jackets away in favour of their trusty winter parkas. Apparently, this reliable garment was invented by Inuit people to protect them from the glacial winters and its been working its way into western culture ever since in the form of army attire to 1960s Mods’ wardrobes. These days, it’s the go-to winter coats for kids, protecting them on chilly days from park to playground. I’m pleased to report Next’s modern-day versions are fur-free, easy-to-wash and look good over school uniforms. Winter, we’re ready for you.
