Back to School means fall is on the horizon. We gladly welcome the changing of the seasons from the fiery hot summers to the cool fall breezes. However, we know that after crisp fall mornings, we will undoubtedly be experiencing cold winter nights. When winter sets in, our kiddos need to be bundled for bus stops, playgrounds, and outdoor fun. Here at Daily Mom, we’ve found the best winter coats accessories for Back to School.
Carhartt is a favorite brand of ours, and is a staple in many of our husband’s closets, however, their children and women’s clothing line is also impressive. The same durability and practicality carries over into all of their clothing, and comfort is the #1 factor when Carhartt creates all their clothing. As parents, we know that if it isn’t comfortable, your kids won’t wear it. Wrangling your children into winter coats is sometimes a battle, but with kid’s outerwear from Carhartt, at least they won’t complain that it isn’t comfortable. And, as parents, you will love that you won’t be buying another jacket 5 months into the never-ending cold season because Carhartt is durable, and will last them through the entire season (and can also be handed down to younger siblings in future years, too!)
Their Boy’s Quick Duck Jacket features Carhartt’s trademarked Rain Defender technology, which makes the jacket totally water resistant, and any moisture will bead up and roll off the canvas material. It’s perfect for those rainy spring and fall days, and is warm enough to last throughout the entire snowy winter with it’s quilted taffeta lining. The Quick Duck fabric is their lightest and most durable canvas fabric, and is 30% lighter than traditional sandstone, so nothing will hold your kiddo back on the playground at school, or doing farm chores at home. The Girl’s Quick Duck Woodward Jacket has the same features as the jacket above, yet makes it feminine, so she won’t have to sacrifice style for durability. The hot pink lining looks cute, and she will love the small details, such as the pink zipper and the pink chest zippered pocket. The Kid’s Quick Duck jackets have the following features:
- 8.8-ounce, 60% cotton, 40% polyester canvas
- Rain Defender® durable water-repellent finish
- Contrast pink, quilted taffeta lining in body and sleeves
- Left-chest pocket with media port, hidden sleeve cuffs
- Weather-shielding drop tail hem for a flattering fit
- Internal pocket with name-tag label
On the clothing front, the Girl’s Pink Bib Overalls are a great option to send her to school wearing, and you know that she’ll be comfy and warm all day long. They are 100% canvas, and quilt lined for extra warmth. They also feature a zipper from the knee to toe that adjust easily, so your daughter can get them on and off easily, as well as add layers to, such as snow boots or snow pants. They also have a stylish pocket in the front with the classic Carhartt sticker label, adjustable straps meant to grow with your child, and utility pockets. The Boy’s Tractor T-Shirt is 100% cotton jersey material, and has a cute tractor graphic printed on the front and back of the shirt. If your child is a tag-hater, Carhartt t-shirts also feature a stylish woven label on the front hem, and a printed label inside the shirt. And you can’t forget to pick something up for yourself in the back to school shopping endeavor, and finding the perfect chambray shirt is always a wardrobe staple in mom’s closet. The Women’s Fairview Solid Shirt is just that- the perfect chambray shirt. You can roll up your sleeves and get to work in this relaxed fit shirt that is 100% cotton chambray. The long sleeves can be rolled up to 3/4 length and secured with a button tab. It has two chest pockets for utility, and one of them has a pen stall. The drop tail hem is flattering, and long enough to cover your backside so you can wear it with those leggings for a casual look, or button it up and dress it up with some black jeans or pants.
And, like everything that Carhartt makes, they are 100% owned and operated in the U.S.A.; proudly hailing from one of the countries top industrial city full of grit and determination: Detroit, Michigan.

Children (and people in general) wear belts for a variety of reasons:
- Newly Potty Trained – Without the added bulk of diapers, pants that once fit are now looser and may require a belt. Additionally, kids at this age need to quickly undo their pants.
- Fast-Growing Toddler – Children grow at different rates; therefore a 2T pair of pants might fit in length while still being roomy in the waist. Adjustable waists help but a belt is way cuter.
- Independent Student – Perhaps your kindergartner or first grader is heading off to school, but hasn’t quite mastered buttoning their pants, much less fastening and unfastening a belt on their own.
Whatever the situation, Myself Belts allows kids to unfasten their belt quickly and with one hand, creating a lot of confidence and independence.
While there are plenty of solid canvas and leather options, Myself Belts offers many kid-friendly styles and themes such as rainbows (as seen above), camouflage, sports, cars, cupcakes, polka dots, and stripes. These adorable styles are the perfect accessory for any child’s outfit.
Their patented design uses a simplified fastening process that allows children to independently use their belt. All your child has to do is:
- SNAP – When facing your child, SNAP the end of the belt around the front right belt look (child’s left), keeping the Velcro facing out.
- SLIDE – Like any belt, SLIDE the rest of the belt through the belt loops.
- SECURE – Join the ends together to SECURE closure. Your child would do this step on their own throughout the day.
If you prefer the look of a traditional belt, you can add a square or heart slide on the buckle. You can also personalize the belt with your child’s name or monogram.
This mom-invented product, recently seen on ABC’s Shark Tank, is a no-brainer for back-to-school as it really is the easiest belt on the market to fasten for kids aged 2-12 and makes dressing a cinch!
