Old school cool for winter kids from Gigi’s Buttons


Everything old is new again, thanks to a revival of classic dressing for children. Little gents and ladies will love these Melbourne-made hats and coats.

With the cold weather well and truly settled in, dressing the kids has once again become a chore in my household (I love the freedom of summer and simple shorts and tees). I’m a big fan of layering to keep kids warm, and finishing off the look with a well-made, tailored coat. So these beauties caught my eye. They’re made in Melbourne, and if you’re lucky enough you’ll also find some gorgeous boys’ “old man” hats on the virtual shelves of Gigi’s Buttons.


The toggle coats are very smart, and long-wearing. They’re made in generous sizes to allow for the sleeves to be rolled up, ensuring they get worn through many winters. Gigi’s Buttons is constantly changing fabrics, and also the gorgeous lining. The one pictured above, which is made from wool, is priced at $120 in sizes to suit boys from eighteen months to two years. Other fabric options start at $100.



There are also some stunning girl’s coats available at Gigi’s Buttons, the one directly above is also made from wool, with a gorgeous giraffe lining, and costs $120.


As I mentioned earlier, if you keep your eye on the Gigi’s Buttons store you’ll see these charming boys’ hats pop up every now and again, and they’re priced at $20.
