Buy Now: Cool-Kid Jackets At H&M


blue bomber + ramones tee | faux-leather jacket + stones tee

If you follow me on IG (@shanachristine), you’ve seen this picture before, but it’s worth mentioning here, since most years I MISS IT.   “It,” of course, being the short window of time that the cool-kid jackets are actually in stock at H&M.

We LOVE H&M for kid clothes.  Especially their selection of faux-leather jackets, urban-chic bombers, and little boy suits.  Everything is under $50 (even the faux-leather jackets), the pieces are often machine washable (although I mostly just wipe down the faux-leather), and H&M always manages to look (and feel!!) much more expensive than it is.

In years past I’ve always waited until Fall to start looking for cool-kid jackets, and the selection is always seriously picked over at H&M.  This year, we’re headed to Iceland for a week in August, so I had to start my jacket search much earlier.  SCORE.  It turns out that the beginning of August is the PERFECT time to snag a jacket for the cool kids.

Shana founded The Mom Edit in 2008. She lives with the love of her life (his name's Mike) and their two crazy boys in downtown Philadelphia. She loves a good styling challenge (her engineering side shows eventually), appreciates kindness, and usually picks scotch over wine, sneakers over stilettos, and shorts known as denim-underwear, always.

  1. Back to school is also 20% off right now on the H&M site!! Just bought tons of stuff including some of your jacket recommendations, thanks!! This blog is the best :)))

  2. Love these suggestions! My girls would totally rock a bunch of them (at 13 and 12, my boys think that hoodies are sufficient coats for every type of weather #eyeroll)! And I, too, love the boys’ suits at h&m. The slim fit cuts are cool and the price point is perfect.

  3. These are so cute! I admit shopping the girls’ section of H&M for myself sometimes (it’s one of the perks of being petite!) I also just bought my just-turned-5-year-old boy some GREAT H&M pants for kindergarten–skinny-leg, pull-on chinos, soft and comfy and great for a little guy who’s not totally adept at buttons and zippers yet. And $9.99! Love H&M for kids.

  4. Umm, yeah, I’m going to stick with the disposable clothes of Old Navy. My son is an athletic clothing wearer and dammit, as long as he’s wearing clothes, I’m cool with that. Nothing matches and he purposely wears two different socks every day and I adore his fashion. He’s 9.
