With the clocks going back and the temperatures plummeting, winter is definitely on its way. Soon we'll all be reaching for scarves and umbrellas instead of flip flops and sunglasses. The arrival of winter doesn't mean that we ethical consumers should neglect our sense of style for us and our children!
Elves in the Wardrobe is here with a guide to ethical children's clothes for the colder months.
Organic cotton baby clothes for the winter
Dressing your baby for winter means thinking about layers. The general rule is to dress your baby in one more layer than an adult would be comfortable in. Whether you are indoors or outdoors, layering organic cotton baby clothes is a must. Adding accessories can also be great for changing temperature conditions. Putting on an organic baby hat is perfect for car journeys or other trips that start cold and get warmer.When layering ethical children's clothes, you should think about adding a jumper or jacket. Our organic cotton knit wrap jacket by Sense Organics is perfect for keeping your little one cosy, while adding some winter style. For a long-sleeve organic cotton/wool onesie that's ideal for layering, our loud+proud baby onesie in grey will go with anything and keep your baby warm. A cute cat all over print makes it the perfect addition to a winter wardrobe.
For an even more versatile option, our Sense Organics Wrap Jacket offers the fashion-conscious parent two options depending on the rest of the outfit. Go for the plain side when layering, or bring out the polar bear print for guaranteed cuteness. We think choosing organic baby clothes should also mean you are spoiled for choice.
Fair Trade children's clothes: t-shirts and tops
The staple item for any season is the classic t-shirt. With winter on its way, it's time to think about stocking up on tops for layering and for those sunny days when a coat is too much.
With our never out of stock range by loud+proud, you will always be able to find the perfect shirt for layering.
All over prints have been really popular this season. Keep the rest of the outfit simple and let the monkeys or elephants do the talking!
Organic cotton jackets and jumpers
For the chilliest days spent jumping in puddles and kicking leaves, an organic cotton coat or hoodie is the ideal choice. Combined with a good pair of wellies and some organic pants or jumpsuits your child can enjoy the best of winter in supreme warmth.
This adorable reversible organic cotton jacket by German Eco fashion label loud+proud is one of our favourites. The cheeky monkey print is sure to appeal to your little one. It's the perfect example of fantastic quality, stylish and ethical children's clothes. Staying warm has never looked so cute!
