Childrens hats, scarves and jackets – What’s hot for winter!

It’s that time of year when childrens hats, scarves and jackets start to fill the racks of our department stores. Even though the sun is shining here in the southern hemisphere, the shops are filling with designer baby clothes and kids winter fashon so that we can get prepared for the coming seasonal changes. Australian stockists often take their inspiration from northern hemisphere trends and there are some delightful treats heading our way this year. Here are 5 hot fashion trends in childrens hats, scarves and jackets for 2013.

5 hot fashion trends for childrens hats, scarves and jackets

Hats for boys

Stylish hats for boys have been big in the US this winter, with the Hollywood offspring of stars like Sandra Bullock and Gwen Stefani stepping out in flat caps and fedoras. Little Maddox Jolie-Pitt has been bucking the trend, though, preferring a knitted skull cap – often matching his dad! Earthy tones have been popular in childrens hats for boys, with warm browns, greys and denims keeping the little men looking smart.

Hats for girls

Hats for girls have also been classic and sophisticated this winter, including berets and trilbies in deep rusty reds and animal prints. Suri Cruise has been spotted out and about in a dark navy trilby with bright purple shoes. Childrens hats can always be fun as well as fashionable especially matched with some perfect kids jewellery!

Jackets for boys

In the US, the big trend for boys’ clothing has been varsity jackets, and the trend has spilled into Europe through big name brands like Gap. A varsity jacket gives stylish little boys a sporty look and adds some bright contrasting colours to the darker shades seen in childrens hats. Like the flat caps, winter tops have been miniature versions of what daddy might be wearing – including layered up shirts and cardigans. Hip celebrity kids like Kingston Rossdale and Louis Bullock have been pairing varsity jackets or cardigans with cool slogan t shirts.

Jackets for girls

Like childrens hats for girls, jackets this winter have taken a step back in time, with the standout trend being the ruffled look. Everything from hoodies to raincoats has featured a nipped-in waist above a layer or two of ruffles. In terms of colours, pink never goes out for fashion for little girls, but this year they’ve teamed it with red, white and navy in bold candy stripes and colour blocking combinations.


Scarves this winter have been making their own statement. Matching childrens hats, scarves and beanies are always a practical option for babies, but for older kids this year’s look has been all about contrast. Moving into the northern spring, lightweight scarves in graffiti prints and fluoros are being worn loosely tied at the front. These are sure to be a hit in milder southern climates where knitted scarves can be too heavy.

Childrens hats, scarves and jackets come in an endless range of colours and styles, but this year’s northern hemisphere fashions focused on sophisticated earthy tones, high contrast colour combinations and styles that mimic mum and dad.
