Autumn clothes for kids: the 10 best buys

by My Kent Family reporter

Temperatures are officially dipping and it's time to welcome autumn with open arms, because if there's one thing we love about the new season, it's the clothes.

Cosy coats, the unisex trend and the deliciously bold shade of red are making waves on the high street, but it's not just for grown-ups. These are all getting the nod in childrenswear, too.

"Our kidswear collection for Autumn brings a bold pop of colour, with thoughtful details in the delicate embroidery, cosy faux fur trims and a touch of sparkle," says Shani Delargy, head of buying for childrenswear at Debenhams.

"The J by Jasper Conran collection focuses on vibrant colours, confident graphics and charming prints, while the RJR.John Rocha occasionwear collection is perfect for party season, returning with full dresses in shimmering satins, pom-pom heels and faux fur shrugs."

Nicola Williamson, Bobux's senior designer and product developer, notes that fashion-forward parents are buying children's clothing in rusty reds, mustard and deep green shades, and recommends on-trend metallic boots for adding a glamorous edge to a toned-down outfit.

 

Because even small people can be super stylish. Here are our seasonal favourites...
