Children’s Bolero, Coat and Sweater
If your formal event is set to last into the evening, as many weddings do, you will want to consider a special jacket to accompany your little girl’s formal dress. The last thing you want to do is cover a gorgeous gown with an everyday parka, or raincoat. Designers have taken this into account and have come up with some delightful alternatives that will augment the look you worked so hard to achieve as you make your way from church to the reception.
No matter what time of year your formal event takes place, the need for a jacket may come up. If you are planning a winter wedding, or formal event, you can almost count on it. Bolero style jackets are very popular in the spring and summer when a light breeze is all you need to contend with. It offers just enough coverage to keep her cozy without overheating her and may even complete an outfit.
If the snow is falling and the wind is up you will need something more substantial. A nice wool coat and hat combination can retain the formal feeling of the day, while functioning as a buffer from the elements. Fleece and fur are also good for keeping out the cold.
If you are in a warmer climate during the winter, a half coat might be just what you need. These formal style jackets look great, and are not as bulky, so children are happier. Most children do not like to be bundled too tight. Look for a sweater or jacket that will meet the needs without restricting your daughters’ movements. There are plenty of choices to suit every need and taste.
Even if you do not expect chilly weather, a bolero jacket or short coat can make an elegant addition to your little girl’s attire. The simple addition of a light jacket can change the look of the dress considerably, which is great if you will recycle the dress for other occasions.
