When it comes to kids’ coats, form must follow function. But that doesn’t mean you can’t have a little style at the same time.
The new faux shearling jackets made exclusively for Scoop by Velvet are equal parts sensible outerwear and cute kid couture. Like the adult versions, the navy or rose hooded numbers are made of durable (read: machine-washable) polyester.
Available in sizes two to twelve, they’ll look super fine on the playground while keeping the seasonal chill from ruining the fun.
So you don’t fall short on either account.
