 “I knew that I needed to get some brands that do boys’ clothes really well so it would be fun to shop for them.” She cites brands like Appaman and Andy + Evan as ones that carry more imaginative boys’ looks.”

Adding a formal coat or fun jacket to your holiday party outfit is a great way to complete your photo-ready look. Why cover up your fancy fashion with snow gear when you could complement it with faux fur, velvet, or a smart and sophisticated overcoat? Nothing beats a great coat or jacket to add the perfect final touch and make a special event extra special.

The Coolest Kids Jackets for Spring

March 14, 2016 in Appaman Style

Appaman Spring Jackets Kids

KIDS JACKETS FOR SPRING, STREET CRED INCLUDED
The heavy winter layers are finally coming off (woot woot!), but with that comes the question of which kids jackets are the big winners this spring? At Appaman, our spring jacket recipe includes a mix of cool street style combined with a heavy dose of functionality. Our spring jacket lineup includes super cool bomber jackets, sleek trench coats and lightweight windbreakers.

GIRLS JACKETS SPRING APPAMAN

GIRLS JACKETS: SPRING STYLE IS THE BOMB
For spring 2016, we designed a fresh take on a fashion favorite, the bomber jacket. The Meyer Bomber Jacket is a techno riff on a classic. The insanely shiny fabric has a cool confetti prism pattern. We love it worn over the Unicorns Circle Tee, with its smattering of shiny metallic unicorns. The pretty pink Nyla Bomber Jacket, made with a luxurious double knit, has sporty raglan sleeves and a textured geometric pattern. The Sonoma Windbreaker comes in two shades: Pastel Green and Silver and is all kinds of awesome. Its water resistant fabric keeps little ladies shielded from heavy spring rains. And when it’s not raining, the bright lining peeks out when the hood is down. Our girls water-resistant Trench Coat is a wardrobe essential that looks amazing over dresses and pants. Our trench is available in both black and a pretty iris shade. She’ll love the surprise silver monkey lining. In fact, all of our spring girls jackets are lined with super cool patterns!

BOYS SPRING JACKETS | APPAMAN

BOYS JACKETS: SPRING INTO ACTION
The boys jacket collection for spring is all about giving him a stylish accessory for all of his spring adventures. The Navigator Jacket is a little explorer’s dream, with lots of pockets, a cool houndstooth pattern and a hidden hood that zips into the collar. Available in two sleek shades: Black and Gunmetal. The Expedition Windbreaker  will be his go-to jacket for spring. Every kid’s wardrobe needs a smart windbreaker to throw on over a t-shirt. Made in a medium weight fabric with four pockets and a hood, it’s made to withstand whatever spring throws his way.
