One of the best things about autumn is that it's not as cold as winter. The air is cool and it can get pretty windy most of the time, but you don't have to cover your kids in loads of layers just yet. A cool cardigan—the more colorful, the better—is enough to keep your kids warm outside. They'll love it too because it won't restrict them all that much, even if you go for thick wooly ones. In fact, these work best because they're are practically sweaters; they can still wear it when winter comes as well. And when they go to school, they can always sport them over their school uniforms.
Don't underestimate your kids when it comes to fashion. Most especially now that they're more exposed to social media, they might already know how they want to look without you telling them. So don't be afraid to get them more fashionable pieces, especially the basic ones. A good example is a trench coat. Many kids are sporting them nowadays and they're just as comfortable as they are cool and trendy. And if stylish Parisians are wearing it during the season—in the fashion capital, no less!—what's stopping your little ones from sporting it as well? They might know more about style than you think!

Do you also know what's hip to wear these days? Puffer jackets! The once-boring winter garment has become a style staple among the streetwear crowd. Even big-name celebrities are pairing it up with their own designer clothing! And the best part? It will keep your kids nice and warm. However, don't go for the extra puffy ones. There are variations where the jackets aren't too puffed up but are just right, enough to keep your little one warm without restricting his/her movements. And if you get them in bright colors like sunflower yellow, hot pink, or pastel teal, they might like it more.
Let's focus on the girls for a minute. What can they wear that will keep them covered up and warm without having to restrict their movements? Tights! Though jeans are the more essential style staple to go for, dressing them up in tights might make them feel more comfortable. This way, they can still sport their favorite skirts or shorts—which allows them to move around and run better—while still staying toasty. After all, autumn can be cold but a pair of tights is enough to keep your little ones from freezing and catching a cold. You can even go for striped or polka-dotted tights for a cuter look.
Button-Up The Boys
What about boys? What do they get to wear during autumn? A nice button-up shirt will do! A flannel might even look cooler, making them look all tough and manly like a lumberjack. The lumberjack look is very trendy during autumn and there's no reason your little boy can't get in on all the fun. Surely, they'd appreciate looking like a grown-up too, all buttoned-up and everything, even though they'll just run around and jump on piles fo leaves. At the very least, it'd be easy to dress them up before they go outside. Just fasten a few buttons and it's done!
The beanie look will always look cute during autumn. Most especially if you put them on your little babies. They're probably already onesies to keep them warm, but you can always help them accessorize with an adorable beanie hat. It's easy to put on and will definitely keep your little one warm and toasty. And when you put them on your toddlers, at least the garment's simple shape won't feel too heavy on their heads. They might even forget that they were wearing it when they're having so much fun outside. Such is the power of the beanie!
Your kids aren't kittens, you don't have to give them mittens! These days, gloves are the way to go. Mittens will only restrict your kids when they play outside while gloves can keep their hands warm without bothering them all that much. Fortunately, a lot of the casual-wear high street brands, like UNIQLO, H&M, Zara, and more, all offer gloves that are high-quality, durable, and fashionable. You can simply get a pair from any of these labels and more for yourself and your children. Don't you want to match and look like one happy fashionable family?
Autumn is as fashionable a season for kids as it is for adults. You can dress them up in many stylish ways that can keep them looking trendy, feeling warm and toasty, and allow them enough agency to have fun playing outside! You just have to know which pieces to get!
Of course, you'd want your kid to look fashionable when you're in a major fashion capital. And your stay will be even better if you got a luxury apartment as your accommodation, be it in Paris, Milan, or London!
