Bundle up in super-versatile playground-to-forest jackets and footwear – for you and the kids
“I don’t think you should sacrifice style for comfort,” says Whitney Ross, 35. Between keeping up with cutie-pies Morgan, 4, and 17-month-old Parker, and designing her über-adorable clothing collection Whitney Kids, Ross knows what she’s talking about. “This is a great outfit for weekends up north or for running errands in the city during the week.
I could head to the park with the dog and the kids, or go grocery shopping at Whole Foods,” she says.
And what’s good for Mom is good for kids, too: layered under a down vest, anything from long-sleeved shirts to sweaters and jean jackets is season-appropriate and on-trend. Other great options include sporty bomber jackets, sleek trenches, or country-estate-inspired tweed blazers (try ’em collar-up under a puffy vest!). Faux-fur, shearling or leather accents add a luxe touch. Add some go-anywhere shoes or boots, cap it off with a hat and mitts, and you’re good to go!
