Nordic Nights | A Guide to Dressing Your Kids in Nordic Style This Winter
With the nights drawing in and the weather getting crisp, winter is well and truly on the way. There's nothing left but to channel the notion of hygge, bundle up in lots of layers, and enjoy the feelings of cosiness and warmth that winter brings. From Helsinki to Reykjavik, the Nordic region has mastered the art of dressing for colder weather.
You will need: fur-lined layers, warm knitwear, and tonal outerwear. Once you have that, all that you're missing is a fresh blanket of snow on the ground and a hot chocolate to keep little fingers warm and toasty. Shop the Nordic Nights edit here, inspired by the experts in cosy winter wear.
Nordic Nights - Our Top Picks
First things first, your wardrobe won't be complete without a Nordic-style fair isle jumper. Whether you are inspired by the traditional knits of Iceland or the Norweigian lusekofte sweater, take the Nordic theme one step further by evoking the brilliant colours of the Northern Lights.
This cosy patterned jumper by Ralph Lauren is made from 100% cotton, making it super soft and brilliant at temperature regulation. Complete with a scandi design, this deep green knit reminds us of a Nordic winter woodland scene.
Layer up with knits
Of course, the most important thing when dressing for the cold is layers. Wool waistcoats will provide extra warmth over blouses, and knitted hoodies offer the option to keep ears covered from the biting cold.
Perfect their Nordic-inspired outfit with a patterned top. This Bonpoint waistcoat is knitted in a warm Merino wool, guaranteed to take any look from nought-to-Nordic faster than you can say pohjoismaista tyyliä (that’s “Nordic style” in Finnish).
Fur lined cosiness
Nothing keeps the chill away like a fur-lined layer. In the long nights of northernly Scandinavian winters, snug layers like these will help to keep the cold at bay, and the muted colours are synonymous with dreamy, snowy winter landscapes.
This fur-lined knitted poncho from Tutto Piccolo features a sweet pink pom-pom trim, and it is the perfect addition to a Nordic-inspired wardrobe. Layer over a patterned dress on milder days, and on the colder evenings, it can be worn over soft knitted jumpers to keep little ones warm and cosy.
Drawing inspiration from the picturesque and brightly coloured dwellings of Rejkyavik, a pop of colour will complete their wardrobe as well as keep little ones as snug as a bug in a rug!
It wouldn't be true Nordic style without a warm winter jacket. Whether you prefer to keep it simple with a block-colour coat or add interest with a patterned jacket, the right outerwear is the perfect finishing touch. This beautiful mustard thermo jacket from Liewood is wind-resistant and water-repellent, ideal for unpredictable winter weather.
