Winter is just around the corner, which means it’s time to pack away the last of the light fabrics and load up on cozy clothing. This year, vintage-inspired looks are seeping into all age groups and the shapes of garments are returning to a comfortable and flattering fit. Luckily, there are several styles that are classic and easy to put together, which will help you create a fantastic winter wardrobe for your son or daughter without shelling out too much cash. You can even find very fashionable baby-clothes for your littlest one. Check out what the kids are wearing this season, and ensure your child feels stylish, comfortable and happy throughout the winter.

1. Stay casual with mixed and matched outfits. The disheveled rock star look is as hot as ever, so those distressed t-shirts and comfy jeans make a good base for an effortless winter style. Alternatively, patterns can create that same cool and casual look, so don’t be afraid to pair plaid with graphics, stripes with other patterns or a few different colors in different arrangements. The great thing about a variety of patterns and colors? Chances are at least some of them will be in style for the seasons to come.

2. Add a vintage touch with traditional elements. You may have noticed that plaid is back on the runways this season, and it’s also a big trend in girls’ clothes. But contrary to the shapeless plaid shirt craze of the 90s, tartan pea coats, dresses and fitted blouses are in this time round. The sophisticated vintage-inspired style continues with faux fur trim, shawls and stoles for holiday outfits, as well as dresses, skirts and coats in classic shades of red, brown, gray and white.

3. Layer for warmth and style. One of the most useful parenting-tips for stretching a dollar and keeping kids happy is to simply add to what you already have. Start with a few basic pieces and work out from there: a long cardigan over a simple long-sleeved t-shirt, a knit skirt over thick tights and a fabric belt or tie to bring everything together will look great, plus your child can take off a layer if she gets too warm. For boys, zippered hoodies are always a stylish and functional choice for any winter outfit – this season, the most popular styles feature bold graphic prints or lettering. Stick to neutral and versatile colors for the base layers, as they will carry on through other seasons.

4. The sporty look is fashionable and functional. Jerseys and track pants are as great for lounging around as they are for sports. Made to be comfortable, athletic gear is back in style and is perfect for layering, which will keep kids warm and dry in the winter. Keep the pieces a little on the baggy side and look for jackets and pants that have convenient pockets, ankle zips or side snaps that will help to prevent overheating.

5. Lighten up with bright colors. While black, blue white and gray seems to be the timeless winter color selection, look to bright and lively colors for outerwear this season. Red is big for girls and boys, and the metallics that lit up the runways in the fall are also gracing kids’ winter lines. Go bright and bold for a playful look, or stick to a neutral base with a streak of navy, red or bright green for more of a grown-up style.
