I absolutely adore capes on little girls and am pleased to report that capes are making a big comeback this winter, as seen at the recent Kids Instyle tradeshow in Sydney.
Keeping any child still while doing up buttons over layers of clothing in winter can be a feat even for the highly-skilled so we like how ponchos and capes let you focus instead on that other tricky dressing task – getting those shoes and socks on before leaving the house.
From top left we have the BubbaGrubb cape with hood, perfect to throw over a winter dress. Next is the Tea Princess cape with little collar and flower, perfect for that special occasion. Top right is the gorgeous green poncho from Luna Ninos, perfect with jeans in winter. Bottom left and center is the reversible – yes, you read right, reversible – cape from Knuffle Kid made from vintage wool in red or grey. Bottom left is the new cable knit cotton-cashmere poncho from Infancy, also available in a shade of purple.
All that’s left to ponder is which of these do I buy this winter? With two daughters, I can at least choose two options.
