FALL COATS AND JACKETS FEATURE BOTH FASHION AND FUNCTION
By Emily Parks, Contributing Writer

Before you know it, chilly mornings will be upon us once again. Whether it’s a downy vest to wear while picking apples or a snug fleece hoodie for the chilly morning rush to school, the jacket and coats showcased for this fall season provide a variety of styles, options, colors and textures. From your preschooler to your tween, the jackets from this fall season will have you covered.

From soft, muted neutrals to bright, metallic pops of color, fall jackets and coats shine in every color of the rainbow. Bold colors catch the eye with magnificent metallics. “My favorites for fall include fur trim, jackets that provide warmth with some glam as well as fun colors for dreary, chilly days,” says Rosemary Schneider, owner of the children’s boutique The Pied Piper in the Village of Cross Keys. Two of her favorites are the bright pink puffer jacket as well as a metallic gold puffer jacket with fur trim. Both are sure to stand out in the hallways at school!

Fun patterns take the spotlight at Mini Boden this fall, with downy jackets and vests adorned with stars, lightning bolts, florals and even horseback riders. And the bonus? The vests are reversible, allowing for two looks in one. Mini Boden also offers up a smart Duffle coat, featuring a toggle fastener and preppy colors that will spiff up any fall outing. And it wouldn’t be fall without fleece, especially the Mini Boden Cosy Gilet green fleece vest.

With these colors and styles, the jackets and coats for fall offer both function and fashion as well as an easy venue for self-expression. Send them off to school in style! •
