We take a look at the snuggest jackets, coats and knitwear from Next

The cold months mean one thing and one thing only in the UK: wrapping up. Not being prepared for the change in seasons – which is just starting to sharpen up and kick into gear – can lead to colds and discomfort for the whole family. And especially when you’re more than you, taking care of the little ones and protecting them from the cold is imperative.

So that’s why today we’re looking at the top winter warmers for the whole family; from winter coats for women to kids cardigans and mens leather jackets, this is all about the best cover-ups and snuggly outerwear for every member of your family unit.

1.Boys: Fairisle Patterned Cardigan

This is a great knitted cardigan for young boys – its pattern looks cool and trendy, but more importantly for mum and dad, it’s very warm and can easily be worn under a larger coat or layered with scarves and hats to protect against wind and snow. The red Fairisle Patterned Cardigan (pictured below) is a real Christmas keeper too!

2. Ladies: Navy Luxury Parka

A longlined coat with excellent coverage, a big faux-fur hood and pockets is the ideal for weekends, walks and long trips away with the kids in the colder months. The navy colour of the parka is also great for staying clean and fresh-looking.

3. Mens: Red Hooded Jacket

A very stylish present if your boyfriend or husband is having a birthday in the next few months and you want to buy them something practical as well as a la mode. The dark brown/red hue of this jacket is very on-trend, but the rest of the story is all about warmth, practicality and utility. Hood keeps out the cold and the high collar also works to prevent any draughts getting to the neck or chest.

4. Girls: Quilted Jacket

There are several quilted jacket styles to choose from but these are great for the young ladies in your family – lightweight but extremely warming, and available in several colours, from a black to a blush pink, with or without hood.

5. Mens: Tan leather jacket

A classic winter warmer that lasts well into the spring and the next autumn, this stylish tan leather jacket is perfect if you’re looking for a slightly light alternative to the winter coat.
