    Promising review: "My son really liked it. The quality is good and it doesn't look silly to size up *a little* if you prefer to get a longer wear out of your coats. Being in California we only wear heavy coats a month or two a year and it's nice to get a quality that can last. This seems to be the type. The lining is very soft. I promise it looks nice and he picked it himself so I'd imagine it's a look kids like." —Rosie

    27. A 3-in-1 winter coat that is absolutely essential for cold-weather regions and activities. You can remove the outer shell to find a fleece liner and the storm placket is built in to provide extra protection from all extreme weathers.

    3-in-1 warm jacket

    Promising review: "Great winter coat! Love the weight of this coat and the two different layers. The internal liner (the lighter weight fleece portion) has lined sleeves, which is a must for kids when slipping on a coat, so their shirt sleeves don’t bunch up. The front portion of the hood is also a great feature as it wraps around the face a little more than the average hood. All in all a great coat with tons of great details. Highly recommend!" —JennaP

    Price: $60 (available in sizes XS–XL and six colors/patterns)

    28. A dress shirt that is perfect for those upcoming holiday photos. This simple shirt will have your kiddo looking spiffy in no time.

    Promising review: "Love the quality of these shirts! They don’t shrink like so many others, and have a slightly thicker, sturdier feel to them which make them look nicer. It’s so hard to find good white dress shirts for my boys, but this is one I’ll keep coming back for!" —Anna

    Price: $14.99 (available in sizes XS–XL)

    29. And a snazzy plaid blazer because every young person needs a smart blazer. This will look great with a pair of jeans or some nice dress pants, either way your kiddo is going to look dapper!

    Kid in blazer

    Promising review: "This jacket fit perfectly and was so cute for a holiday function we had. It's a soft corduroy and true to size. My 7-year-old is tall for his age, but the size 7 fit him perfectly! Highly recommend this jacket — looked great with a navy pair of dress pants." —KimK

    Price: $30 (available in sizes 5–16 husky)

    30. A great pair of straight-fit jeans that are built to last and highly affordable! These would look great with the above blazer and make for a semi-formal look for all those family functions they dread getting dressed up for.
