Barbour offers practical and stylish options for those going back to school.
It’s back to school and time to invest in a new functional jacket to keep the kids warm for the winter.
The holidays are over and it’s the beginning of a new school year. To celebrate this occasion loved and dreaded by so many children, it’s time for the yearly ritual of buying new school clothing. A practical, waterproof and warm jacket that will serve its purpose well through the winter, is an essential.
For boys, the Barbour Valley Down jacket is perfect. Available in olive or black, with a removable hood and duck down filling, it provides protection from the elements during the cold winter months. For the cool kids returning back to school, the Barbour Parka is the jacket for them, with a drawstring waist and light wadding. Functional yet stylish, it’s definitely an item to increase the popularity status!
For girls, the classic Liberty Beadnell is a brilliant option, offering a protective weatherproof wax teamed with a bright floral lining and cuffs. For those cold fresh mornings, the Winter Force Parka provides comfort and warmth against rosy cheeks with its fleece lining drawstring hood. For the young and fashion-minded, the Harvest Gilet is a key piece for the season, with the fake fur trim bringing an element of sophistication to the school playground.
For city school chic with a countryside twist, the Vintage Quilt for gorgeous girls and the Union Jack Liddesdale for strapping lads are must-have items. The bold union jack lining of the Liddesdale is a bright and colourful reminder of the fun that was had over the summer, whilst the Vintage Quilt with its contrasting cord collar and piping bring an exuberant equestrian vibe to the average school uniform.
For those who like more traditional styles, the Barbour Unisex Duffle offers a stylish twist to the standard school fare with luxurious wool fabric and signature Barbour tartan lining complementing each colour way.
Fianlly, no trip to school would be complete without hats, scarves and wellington boots. To shield ears from the winter chill, the Hunter Hat for boys is fleece lined and available in a range of colours and fabrics including camo print wax, cord, wool tartan and quilted. For girls, the Quilted Nylon Fur Hunter hat in Bright Pink is perfect for any girl who loves cheery colours. Other lively options for dreary winter days include the Ellie Bobble hat, a chunky soft beanie hat with a bobble on the top, available in Bright Pink and Grape. The Lambswool Tartan Scarf is a classic option for wrapping up warm whilst the kids Wellington Boots invite rainy days and big puddles, coming in a range of fun colours including pink, purple, red and blue.
