Combining fun designs with cosy comfort, our favourites are the hoot and autumn tights, depicting owls, hedgehogs and squirrels – all perfect for the winter season.

The range can also be worn like a pair of leggings and has great anti-slip soles. Your little troopers will never feel the chill again.

Ugg Children’s Ear Muffs
Ugg has come a long way from its 70’s surfing days in California. Although still a brand symbolizing casual style, it carries an air of luxury with its worldly recognised sheepskin trademark. Now with a great range for kids, these trendy earmuffs are perfect for this cold weather. Made with super soft sheepskin, they come in a warm chestnut colour. Each earpiece is also designed with a soft fur trim. Although they come in a standard size, the band is not adjustable so make sure they’re a good fit. Suitable for your girls or boys, these are great winter warmers for cold little ears. Currently on special offer at John Lewis at £31.50.
