Keep the kids warm as the mercury drops this winter with 10 cosy, cute, and stylish jackets

1. Marks and Spencer

Warm and cosy, this coat has front and back yokes, lightly gathered below. It's lined in a pleasing polka-dot satin.

3. Vertbaudet

£49, vertbaudet.co.uk

This coat not only looks the business with its faux fur-lined hood and embroidered chest pocket, but it's also machine-washable.

4. Debenhams

£28, debenhams.com

A fully lined hood makes this girl's coat a warm choice. There's a double-breasted fastening at the front and black lining.

5. JoJo Maman Bébé

£32, jojomamanbebe.co.uk

Get two coats for the price of one with this waterproof kids' jacket with cosy reversible fleece lining. It's also machine-washable.

6. Crew Clothing Company

£62, crewclothing.co.uk

Duffel coats are all the rage this year, but none is quite so fabulous as this beautifully made, wool-mix hooded offering.

7. Zara

£23.99, zara.com

A puffa guarantees warmth even on the chilliest of days, and this one remains a stylish option to suit girls of pretty much any age.

8. Mothercare

£16, mothercare.com

This mac's fleece lining provides extra warmth and comfort, while the hood and waterproof finish will keep children nice and dry.

9. Boden

£55, boden.co.uk

Cute and stylish, this snowboard jacket is waterproof and super-warm, with a removable hood, so it's great for everyday use, too.

10. Next
