We still have a little warmth in the air at the moment and while we (hopefully) don’t have to expect full-blown cold spells setting in just yet, prepping out little girl’s wardrobe so that it incorporates some autumn clothes will help to keep her looking funky and stylish in milder climes too. Whether she chooses to play in the freshly fallen leaves with her friends or joins you on the beach throwing stones into the sea, making sure she’s properly dressed, warm and cosy is essential.
Many clothes will be able to double up during the summer and autumn months – especially if she hasn’t had a growth spurt in the meantime. That being said, now is the ideal time to stock up on the little extras that are making their way on to the rails. Stick to ranges like George at ASDA if you want more bang for your buck – it’s amazing how far your cash can go without shirking on quality!
An Autumn Coat
It may not quite be the time to invest in a fully lined, padded winter coat but you can pick up a great autumn jacket to last the season from the character shop at George. The Peppa Pig Quilted Jacket for £12 or the cute Hooded Faux Fur Coat for £14 would be perfect to keep your little girl toasty during the mild weeks and months.
If you’re after an investment and would prefer to buy a coat that can go the distance, don’t worry, there are several styles already making their way onto the shelves, including padded coat and mitten sets which would last your little one through until spring.
If you would prefer to avoid buying a jacket before the winter, a gilet is a superb, stylish alternative that looks great on while also being practical. This super cute Rabbit-Print Quilted Gilet is covered with a cutesy print and lined with faux-fur to help keep the chills at bay. Team with a long sleeve top and some skinnies for an effortless look.
Dresses are a wardrobe essential, no matter what the time of year, but as autumn draws near, it’s time to put the summer dresses away and invest in some fabulous pinafores which would look superb with some funky tights and Converse hi-tops or a pair of fur-lined boots.
These versatile items go with anything and are perfect for little girls who love to play. Add underneath a pair of shorts or a skirt for a particularly cold day, or leave on their own with a simple t shirt and some pumps for day-to-day wear.
If it’s a little cool one day, but you’re not quite ready to pull out the winter coat just yet, ribbed tops are ideal. They provide an extra warming layer underneath a gilet or just on their own, so that your little girl can still enjoy what outside has to offer. The brightly coloured, stripy options available at George bring a little sunshine to an otherwise dull day.
It’s likely that as the season progresses, you will be adding to her wardrobe several times, but these capsule essentials, from the character shop and beyond, will help to get the ball rolling.
